Style Mini Evolution

I bought this dress more than a year ago, and I think last wore it not long after. It's cute and comfy and great for work, but needs to be dry-cleaned. I hate going to a cleaners so often that I avoid wearing things that need to be washed that way.

So, this is the dress. It still fits!


However, I'm strangely aware that my style has changed a tiny bit since then. Today, I broke out my very best shoes to go with the dress: patent Stuart Weitzman kitten heels.


Last time I wore this dress, I didn't have a large upper arm tattoo.


I also didn't have my thigh Unless tattoo.


Nor would it have occurred to me to pair the dress with this bright-green cardigan.


And my hair? It was not yet this awesome.


Yes, this means that I haven't cooked or baked any new recipes in a while. But style evolution also interests me greatly. A general interest in pinup style isn't new for me, but the details change ever so slowly. Then over the course of five years or so, my style has changed completely. My husband has seen this happen at least once already and has been baffled by it.
