We're Just Getting Started!

Can you believe it? We're in the final countdown until the end of 2015 and the start of a new year! Time is truly feels like I just posted my first entry to BBDF! I think this photo is when I started to see myself as a blogger. I was trying to find my angles...still am! Here's quick trip down memory lane.

I was just getting my feet wet when I got the awesome opportunity to work with Sydney's Closet, an exclusive plus size formalwear designer. Since my desire was (and is) to create a resource for plus size formal wear & fashion, I couldn't have been more delighted to work with them. Here are some of the gowns featured on the blog.

Sydney's Closet's gowns are just lovely. They have a great selection for every conceivable formal affair. They recently launched their collection of day-to-night dresses, and I had the pleasure of showcasing a few of those on the blog as well. I did a lookbook for the collection, but here are a few individual shots.

I rounded out the year with some holiday looks that covered everything from animal print to leggings for those who eschew skirts & dresses. I did a recap of all my festive looks, but these are some of my favorite pics.

I've got some ways to go and that's a good thing. We all need to leave room for improvement. I'm so proud of myself for sticking to it despite the overwhelming sea of fashion bloggers on the scene. (I mean come on admit it...there's a lot of us outchea!) Not only that...I survived a tough period in my life due in great part to this blog. 

It helped me channel positive energy into something that I'd hope would make a difference. And trust, me... I don't have time to put on airs. I'm just a regular chick who loves to dress up and now I'm taking pictures to prove it and share it with world. 

Thanks so much for being a part of this journey, whether this is your first time reading or you've stopped by a few times. Keep enjoying the ride & let's see what great things lie ahead in 2016!
