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.
