Evolving Style

Although I have been blogging for around five years, under difference guises and about different subjects, my blog The Curved Opinion turned two years old a couple of weeks ago!

Although I really hate the word "journey" when it comes to talking about your progress in life, this blog charts the way I started dressing when I decided to do away with my black clothes.   I decided to have a look back at some of my old posts and you can really tell the difference in me between now and then.  As a person, in the colours and patterns that I choose and my confidence in posing in front of the camera.

I decided to share a few of the photographs in this post, charting my fashion and confidence journey, can you see the changes?  

I actually love this photograph as it is one of my first blogging pictures.  Definately a little "rabbit in headlights" but I felt amazing.

You can practically see a thought caption over my head saying "Oh crap oh crap!!"

I LOVED this dress,  But I was too scared of wearing it and unfortunately ended up selling it.  Now I miss it a lot!

It's fashion, not torture, get rid of that forced smile!!

Another lovely dress, but another forced smile.  Come on woman!

What's that?  A genuine smile?  Are we getting there now?

Taken at Plus North.  I was so happy and it showed!

A real smile and a bright outfit - now I can see a girl I recognise

Happy and smiling.  Out of my comfort zone with a shorter dress and not a care to be seen.

I've come a long way really.  Roll on the next two years!


  1. Happy birthday to the Curved Opinion! I can definitely see your confidence in the last two pictures. xx

  2. What a lovely post (and so many gorgeous dresses)!

    I'm still at the first stage of rabbit in the headlights, but I'm getting better as I post most days on Instagram now.

    PS that Anna Scholz dress comes up regularly on Ebay...

  3. Happy blog birthday! I love all of your outfits in this post (especially that first one), but then, I always love your outfits; you have amazing style! I't's great to see and hear how much your confidence had grown; I think it's amazing how fashion blogging can help! xx

  4. Congrats on two years. I love your bright funky prints!


  5. Happy blog birthday. I lovee all the outfits. I can definitely spot my style evolving too on my blog. I think it's a natural thing to do. It's also great to hear your confidence has grown with it :) xx
