Style-Volution: Three

In my last Style-volution post I think I mentioned having a style crisis in 2007. I’m not sure if this was a particularly accurate description but I was really referring to my lack of cohesive style for the year. I feel as though my personal style changed quite a bit during this year and it definitely fluctuated along the way. This was the year I began my degree (in visual arts) and I wonder if that had anything to do with it...a new course, a new look? Perhaps. But I definitely explored a few different 'looks' during 2007.


For some reason, I thought bleaching my hair would be a good idea…I suppose I just wanted to see what I’d look like as a blonde. Of course, as I’d been dying my hair red for at least six months my hair was rather orange to start with.


I was rather fond of pulling funny faces. And short skirts, sometimes. The far right is as blonde as my hair went.


Then I dyed my hair a brown-ish red. Despite the outfits in the middle, I suppose you can see I still had an interest in vintage-esque looks.


My bedroom looks so different! But that is irrelevant. The third picture is what I wore for my 21st – Mum made it for me as I had a 1940s themed birthday party.


These are all still some of my favourite outfits, even though I wouldn’t wear them again. And, yes, there’s another silly face!


At the end of the year I dyed my hair black again. I still have that blue dress (it’s 1970s) but I don’t wear it, anymore. I just don’t want to part with it – I think it’d be good for a costume, actually! I also still have the floral two piece but am going to be selling that (also 1970s – don’t suppose anyone is interested?)

So, there you go - that was 2007! I only have one post left to do as I started this blog in 2009 so there isn't really anything to show you, I suppose. Hope you're all still enjoying the series. As with the others, I've uploaded 'out takes' to Flickr.

  1. Andi I am loving this series of posts! It's so cool to see how you developed your gorgeous style (and interesting to see that your path was similar to mine - phew, I'm not the only one who went through and emo phase and toutured my hair! Hehe). I look forward to the next installment!

  2. What an amazing array of styles and looks!

  3. I love your creativity and fashion fearlessness!!

  4. You are so pretty Andi... I love your style :-D

  5. I've never tried going blonde... Everytime I've bleached my hair it was only for dying it another color.

  6. I love seeing all the different looks you went through! You looked so different with the blonde/orangey hair!

  7. I'm lovingthese pictures Andi! Wish I had more pictures of my Style-Volution. Its so interesting to see how you got to your current

  8. I can't believe you had spider bites lip piercings! I wanted those for a long time when I started University! Anyways, I never got them so I guess it was all for the best.
    That 40's dress your mom made is gorgeous! I hope you still wear it. It looks like she used a Vintage Vogue Pattern that I like.
    And I graduated in 2004 from high school too :)

    Wow longest comment ever!

  9. you are so cool in all of your pictures! Think you look the most beautiful currently though ;) xx

  10. I absolutely adore your red hair, in the 3rd group down, 1st picture. It suits you so well!!!
    I think you can totally pull off 60's fashion, too :)

  11. I specially like the grey cress. Looks specialli nice on you.

  12. I went through the same style fluctuations a couple years ago but you were many times more stylish than me during my 'style crisis' stage.

  13. harbourmaster: Thanks! =D Oh, neat. A few people have said similar things and I really lik that.
    Katie: hehe, thanks!
    Baroness: Aw, thank-you! =D That means a lot, especially coming from a gal like you.
    comeinalone: Thank-you. =]
    Franca: Thanks! I'm glad. And, boy, I sure did! Hehe.
    Yesterday Girl: Thanks. =] I wish you did, too - that'd be neat to see.
    Cheri: Yes! I did. I really loved them. Oh, wow, cool! And thank-you. =] Also, I love long comments. =]
    AnnieLindsay-Smith: Awwww, thank-you! =D
    Erin: Thanks. =D I miss red hair. And thanks again - I'm never really sure if I looked good in 60s...
    Xavi: Thanks. =]
    Ruby: Aw, haha, thank-you! =]

  14. Love it! I have got to do something similar one of these days!
    Looking forward to the last post, but wouldn't it be kind of interesting to continue until this year? Of course one can browse the blog, but the visual experience of seeing it gathered is very different, don't you think?
    Anyway, thank you for this great post!

  15. Erika: Thanks. =] And I'd love to see you do something similar. Hmm. That's a good point! But I might be a bit too lazy...;]

  16. This is such a lovely series! I've been reading silently for a little while but I just have to say that I adore your styles... all of them ^_^

  17. Violet LeBeaux: Thank-you so much =D I'm so glad you liked the series (and my styles hehe)


I read and greatly appreciate each and every comment. Thank-you! x
