Ana’s Fashion Evolution


Friday Fashion Files


This part of my blog, Fashion Files, is about people in my life who stand out in the way they wear their clothes. It is also about me in a new role as an emerging but still struggling fashion butterfly.


My fashion style growing up was very tomboyish…Absolutely no ribbons nor frilly stuff for me. The rougher the better.


I always have great difficulty putting together a decent outfit to wear.


Now that my two Babies are starting to carve out their own niche in the world, fashion is becoming an important aspect of my day to day. I used to hate wearing jewelry. But recently on a walk around a shopping mall, all I bought were trinkets!


Here is a synopsis of my fashion evolution.


 7th grade with my friend Martha – very tomboyish



New Year family themed reunion – not a fashionista yet – very awkward fashion pose. Tyra Banks will not be happy.



At a wedding for a nephew. I put together this outfit myself.



 At a wedding for my niece. Wearing my favorite blue. The skirt had a matching top but the day was just too hot and humid to wear it.  One hour before the wedding I cut a blue t-shirt leaving the bottom part, inverted it and voila, instant tube top!



At a themed celebration. Hybrid cowboy/Pocahontas. Roberto Cavalli inspired…haha



 At my Mom’s birthday bash. My usual look, very casual and preppy. Not very age appropriate.  :)



After church. I had a love affair with my blue pants for one month.



Introducing my lovely family-the husband and the two babies



I just had to include this because I think me and my batchmates look cute! This is for a dance number in our upcoming High School Reunion. I refuse to divulge how many years.



As to my fashion future? It is still very much a work in progress. My friend B told me that the style of Leighton Meester of Gossip Girl would look good on me.



What do you think? Do you agree? mmmmmm. :)

Crazy Over Trinkets


Wednesday Wearable Fashion



Just some of the few trinkets I went goo goo and gaga over during my brief visit to the big city.


I don’t even know if I will wear them…the husband will roll his eyes when he reads this and sees what I purchased…love you husband…After I bought them I told the elder Baby, “I need to have a business so that I can pay for this stuff!”  The Baby found that statement very amusing…I don’t know why…



I really have to buy a decent camera to take pictures.  The husband’s cellphone which I managed to borrow while he was sleeping served me well this morning – the resulting images were not too bad.  I laid the necklaces on top of some layered bond paper and just photoshopped the distracting bits of shadows and crumple.  Very time consuming I must say.  There has got to be an easier and faster way.  Will research for some tutorials on this and share it.














That is all I will post for now. I will reserve the other pieces till next time. In the meanwhile I will go over my clothes and figure out how to wear these accessories. I am a novice on anything fashion. Now that I am an ’emptynester’ there is new joy and fun in looking at clothes and all the paraphernalia that go along with it!
