My outfits throughout the year

Since the year is almost over, I thought I'd share some of my favorite outfits from 2011. This was the first year where I really began to experiment with my style. I finally started to wear dresses & skirts instead of hiding in jeans and t-shirts. 

I love this denim dress from Forever 21. I believe I scored it for around $15! That cardigan (from Ross) is my favorite and shows up in many of my OOTD posts.

My most favorite denim skirt! It's a high-waisted pencil skirt I purchased from Torrid several years ago during their 50% off clearance sale. I was too insecure to wear it at the time, so it sat in my closet for a good while. The crazy shoes are from Hot Topic.

This is one of my favorite full-body photos of myself. I look happy and confident. That pencil skirt is from Forever 21, and the shirt is from Ross.

That tunic was only $9.99 from Ross! I paired it with leggings ($4.99 from Forever21), and some $10 sandals. Also, the introduction of my most favorite red stretch belt!

I love that shirt from Torrid. I believe I got it during their 50% off clearance sale, as well.  The jeans and cardigan are from Ross.

My Goosebumps skirt! I made it myself from some bedsheets I found at a thrift store. I'm still super proud of it.

My awesome cherry cardigan from Torrid's Retro Chic collection! How perfect does it look with my cat-eye frames?

These are probably my favorite pair of jeans... and they were only $15! This entire outfit is from Ross.

And last, but not least!....

Betty and I on Halloween! The dress is also from Torrid's Retro Chic collection. I was Lucy and Betty was Ethel. 

I'm hoping for lots of happiness in the New Year and hope to gain even more confidence! I'm so thankful to the fatshion community for really helping me discover that I am beautiful just the way I am.

I hope you all have a very happy 2012!

  4. so many cute clothes. I love Torrid but Im not sure if they deliver to UK and Im sure there would be lots of expensive taxes on top too. :0(

  5. Thank you! I do believe that Torrid ships to the UK, but I've heard that it's really expensive. I don't know what I would do without Torrid!
