1000 VIEWS SPECIAL !!!
I am happy to announce that this morning A Quadrillion and One New Outfits reached 1000 VIEWS! YAY! I would like to say thank you to all of you for visiting, reading and sharing all my wacky posts! It surely has been an adventure, in that last 6 months with out purchasing a single item of clothing (other than that minty dress) I have discovered a total of 72 brand new outfits that I have never worn before! Is that insane or what? After getting to know my closet I understand what I own and this gave me the ability to get creative and to discover new ways to wear my old clothes! So today I would like to look back and review those 72 outfits and award the top posts and see why they worked so well!!
The first place award goes to the most popular outfit post of all time: Like a Good Party Your Clothing Needs to Mingle. At 36 unique pages visits this post has received the most attention out of all the other outfit posts, in my opinion this is probably one of my most important posts containing some of the best wardrobe advice available. In this post I discussed how to reach your wardrobes' full fashion potential, and the importance of mingling your clothing.
As the first place winner this post has won a completely new photo shoot with any of the outfits that weren't tried on before!
I should also make a side note that the most viewed post of all time that is not related to outfits is Ocean Goddess Makeup. In which the inspiration for the post was a dream and this was the makeup that I dreamed that I wore. At 54 views this tangent post has received almost double the views that Like a Good Party has!!
This leads me to believe that I should post some more wild makeup applications! Stay tuned in to see more creative ways to do your makeup!
The second place award goes to the outfit that I wore the most in the past 6 months. I know I have learned from blogging that I never have to wear the same thing twice, but I actually adored this outfit so much that I wore it twice! This ensemble and more can be found here: Wear Your White For Once.
This outfit encompasses my personality I feel beautiful and confident while wearing it. I strongly believe that in order to feel confident and beautiful your clothing has to be feeling great and fitting right. This is how feeling comfortable in your clothing gives you confidence. The white pants are made from linen so the fabric is light and breathable, they also have a liner so they are not see-through both very comforting features that give me comfort and security that no one can see my underwear. The shirt is a floral masterpiece purchased from the bluenotes spring 2012 line for $15, it's so fun and girly it reminds me of a dress I had when I was five. I'm always jealous of the cute little girl sundresses, I wish terribly that they made them in my size, so this shirt captures that nostalgic youth that I'm addicted to. Paired off with Lapis Lazuli Earrings, Pearls, and a sentimental seashell bracelet this look is filled with my personality, and comes off as young elegant and lady like, not at all childish. Thus making this the most perfect outfit ever made!
For winning second place I have attempted to make a three; never worn before, equally amazing outfits for the fall/winter season. While creating the outfits I kept in mind what made this outfit so perfect; comfort, personality & elegance. These outfits are what I came up with for the fall/winter season.
The 3rd place award goes to Precision with Planned Purchasing for being the most practical advice for updating any wardrobe. A quick survey of what you own will help you understand what colours you love to wear, or maybe what colours that may be missing that you would like to wear. In Precision with Planned Purchasing I spilled some effective wardrobe updating secrets that I have been using for years. I have been using a brainstorm cloud chart for years to help me shop, I find while using the brainstorm chart I avoid buying impulsively, unless it's something that I absolutely must have like this poncho, otherwise I usually stick to the guidelines. For winning third place I've finally added an example of what my brainstorm chart looks like! YAY!! Whenever I go out shopping I try to have a version of this chart available to ensure that my purchases will compliment existing wardrobe.
I would just like to say thanks again to you all for checking in, and helping Quadrillion and One New Outfits reach over 1000 views! My husband thinks I should also make a video blog what do you think???
-until next time stay cool, stay comfortable, stay YOU!
