I can't believe it has been three years since I started this blog! It is really funny looking back at my old posts, most of them are horrible but I refuse to delete them.  It shows how much I have grown in so many aspects.  Blogging has helped me in so many ways. I am slowly becoming more talkative in social situations and I think I have to thank my blogging buddies (you know who you are!) for some of that.  Speaking of blogger friends, it has been so amazing meeting bloggers over these past few years, many of which are now real life friends as opposed to just internet.

In honor of the blogiversary here is a tiny selection of some of my favorite outfits/posts over the past 1,095 days! Sorry there are so many! I narrowed it down a bit for you though.

Looking through all my posts made me want to revive and old series I used to do, Obscure Movies, but no one really commented on them so I stopped.  I posted my favorite, unknown to most people, movies.  What do you think?

Bangin' Bargains: eBay Tips
There's something about jeans that I just can't resist. Though, most of the time, I am a good girl and do resist.  Whenever I go shopping I always end up in the jeans section drooling over the newest pairs.  Skinny, wide leg, colored, printed! Whatever they come in, I love them!  As Robert Palmer said, "might as well face it, you're addicted to jeans" (well, actually...he said "love" but you know what I mean) As the lyrics go: (change kiss to pair and love to jeans)
Whoa, you like to think that you're immune to the stuff, oh yeah
It's closer to the truth to say you can't get enough
You know you're gonna have to face it, you're addicted to love

You see the signs, but you can't read

You're runnin' at a different speed
Your heart beats in double time
Another kiss and you'll be mine, a one track mind
You can't be saved
Oblivion is all you crave
If there's some left for you
You don't mind if you do
Here is my jean collection, which I have whittled down considerably and continue to resist adding to. Not sure how long that will last, there are too many great new prints available.  What is the one item you just can't resist?! (if there's a link, they are still available online...for now)
Jolt, Current/Elliott, Guess, Rag & Bone, Free People, American Eagle, Free People, Free People, American Eagle

Here are some jeans I've resisted in the past few weeks...perhaps if they go on sale I'll pick them up.

Today I'm off to NYC for two fashion events, don't know how I'm going to make it to both, but I WILL!...Hopefully I'll have photos for you tomorrow!
If you are a long time follower you will have seen this Marc Jacobs blazer quite a few times [here, here, here and more]. It was one of the first, if not THE first, designer pieces I bought. It was 2006 and I spent a whopping $80 on it, not bad when it probably retailed for over $400.  I fell in love with it after I saw it on Emma Watson in 2005 and made it my mission to find it, I am still in search of this one from a photoshoot she did in Teen Vogue the same year which is also Marc Jacobs. (And one Rory Gilmore wore...I have a Marc Jacobs addiction)

I am still searching for the next size up on eBay because mine is a little small. There are a couple available right now, but unfortunately I need a size 8 because of my shoulders and because these run a bit small (I'm usually a 4 or 6 in jackets)...if you are interested: Size 4 $55 | Size 4 $72

You guys have probably noticed by now that I don't really wear a lot of jewelry. When I first started the blog I never wore it but now I at least wear my watch, 2 rings and 31 Bits bracelets. What you don't know is that I have amassed a nice collection of old jewelry over the years. I know you all probably have 10 times the amount of jewelry I have but I never wear it so it doesn't really matter, ha ha. I am going to try to start wearing it more often, but we'll see how that goes.

Warning: There is a lot of text in this post because I wanted to explain the pieces...
So today I decided to show you some of the pieces I've been handed down from various family members (mostly my mom and Grandmothers).  But first is a jewelry box my Grandfather made me (he made one for all the girls).
These next two aren't exactly jewelry, but they are still heirlooms and pretty.  The first is a watch/pendant/thing that was my Grandmother's (my Dad's mom) and the second is her perfume.  I got both of these when she passed away over 10 years ago.  My mom, aunts, sister and I went though her jewelry and each got to pick out items we liked. I chose the watch because it was cool, and her perfume so I could always smell it when I missed her.
Next up are some rings! I bought the one with the opal and green stone in Rhode Island when I was a little.  It was from this awesome store in Newport, Geoclassics, where everything was made from natural stones. We had gone there the previous year and I only had enough money to buy a stone egg (for $7,) so the next year I saved up and spent a whopping $35 on the ring. The other three are my Mother's, two of which I wear every day.
Now earrings!  Almost all of these were from my late Grandmother.  The diamond/CZ crosses are from one of my Aunt's, and the hearts with CZ are another gift.  Then the plain diamonds at the bottom are what I wear every day, I rarely take them out.  They were a gift from my Grandmother (my Mom's mom, who is still alive.) She bought them for me when I was a senior in high school because I was "retiring" from gymnastics.  She got them for me as a reward for my dedication, I was a gymnast for 13 years and was only stopping because the college I was going to didn't have a team.

These last two were bought when I was younger on various vacations. I believe I bought the necklace in Rhode Island and it is made out of tons of purple shells (my favorite color!) It fits more like a choker now so I don't wear it as much. And I know you all recognize the other item...a mood ring!!! Who didn't have one of these when they were a pre-teen?
