A preview of the Styled By….series. Styled By ………Nancy

Tuesday is the premiere of the new Styled By….. series. I’m very curious what you will think about these series. If you want to join, take a look at the Styled By……… page in the menu. Today a preview of a post you could have seen before, but to give you an idea of what the meaning is. Enjoy ……and participate!

My style

My passion for fashion appparently started very early because my  grandparents told me long time ago a story: I was four years old and I could pick out some new shoes. And I just wanted black patent leather shoes! Nothing else. There you have it! When I was in my puberty(14) I began to develope my style. Not that I wore pencilskirts at that age, lol, but I began to love music that nobody else in  my environment loved. It started with The Cure, then Siouxie & the Banshees and more New Wave, hardrock and Punk. And if you loved this kind of music you wore black. So while friends wore colorful dresses, I wore black. Black clothes, big earrings, big hair! No scarves, necklaces, or brooches, just gold colored big earrings.

Hasn’t my style changed over the years?

Over the years my style changed into lots of pencilskirts and dresses. Always a bit fussy with a cool item( don’t know if that is correct), what I mean is a pencilskirt with a studded belt for example. That’s what I liked and still do. I sometimes wore gray or brown but my wardrobe concisted almost exclusively of black garments and golden accesories. Since blogging more color came into my wardrobe. And I like color now, but when I wear a black outfit I feel most myself. I still wear almost no accesories, often or larger earrings, or bracelets but almost never at the same time. In terms of shoes my tast stayed almost the same. I was and am fond of ankle boots and preferably with a nice heel, but because my lung capacity is not very big, I keep my heels not to high. And what does my style say about my personality? I don’t like a mess, I want everything clean and organised, I know exactly what I do and do not want, I have a strong will, I never walk away from a challenge, I’m not easily approachable( well, I am but people think I’m not!) and I’m not the easiest person to be with! Duh.


I hope to see you all next Tuesday for the kick off! Enjoy the rest of your day.

    How fun!!
    I love being able to “change” up my style since I’ve gotten older.
    I still gravitate towards what I used to wear, but at least I’m more open to new trends and ways to wear items!!

    Je bent de vrouw met stijl. Super toch dat hoe je je kleed over je karakter vertelt. Ik heb ze nog nooit aan elkaar gelinkt. Dan ben ik echt een easy going en niet van poespas houden. 😉

    • December 5, 2016 / 12:32 pm

      Dat is ook een stijl! Doe je ook mee?

    What a great post. The best thing about fashion to me is its opportunity to express our individuality. You do that here. And it’s nice to hear how your style has evolved over time. We grow as people so of course our fashion-choices grow also. P.S., When I was 4, I wanted black patent leather shoes, too!

      Ha ha, that’s funny! And have you got them now? I do! :-), I would love to feature your style story on my blog!

    Looking forward to reading it Nancy! I am thinking of various series for after the New Year too. Love the polka dot skirt and you look great in pencil skirts! My style has changed to add a lot of color throughout the years when I used to wear all black in college.
    Have a great day!

    I love to see how a blogger’s style changes over time. I love all of your looks, they all look like “you”. My favs is the black dress with floral sweater, a nice twist -and the black separates with the very cool pin! (dragonfly ? )
    Looking forward to more in the series!
