Yes, I have run out of even remotely interesting post titles. After 1,500+ blog posts, it’s bound to happen. If I was still keeping track of such things, I’d be celebrating BCRL’s 6th “birthday” right about now, but I’ve basically given up on the whole blogging thing except for the posting part, which is the habit that won’t die. If only I could be so diligent about other things, like taking my multi-vitamins and eating fiber. Oh, right. This is a blog about clothes. I wore some!

In fact, I wore a bunch of cute things … like this Milly x BR collab dress, which I scored at my last clothing swap. And my Liberty print blazer, which is a wee bit loose and boxy now but too cute to give up (you’ll have to pry it from my cold, dead hands). And, of course, my Sofia bag, which doesn’t get nearly enough love. I’m still looking to source of cross-body strap for it, which should make it a big more practical. I added gold shoes because (a) I still haven’t found a navy pair, and (b) my red shoes are a different shade than the bag. For some reason, wearing clashing shades of the same colour is a hang-up of mine. Don’t tell me, I’m probably hideously behind the times & trends on that. Old habits die hard.

  1. Adina, I recently found your blog – and needless to say, I am obsessed. Your style is both aspirational and obtainable and I can’t get enough! I have followed many fashion/lifestyle blogs for a long time and most of them have become about sponsored content and all of the outfits are “c/o” some brand I cannot afford – But you make it work on your own and show other women that it can be done! And it can be done by a woman who takes her job seriously. I am just a huge (new) fan and I wanted to let you know! Keep doing what you’ve been doing!

    • Thank you so much! One of the best parts of blogging is the small community that has been building up here — I truly feel like I’ve gotten to know some of the regular commenters and that’s great; not everyone I know in real life is as obsessed with clothes as I am so it’s nice to have a group (squad? lol!) who gets it. Hope you will continue to enjoy the blog!

  2. Thank you – that’s very sweet. And sorry, I didn’t mean to imply I wa thinking of stopping the blog. I’ve just reached the “give no f**ks” stage where I’m doing it just for the hell of it and not with any sort of discipline/goal. But I love hearing from you guys and that’s part of the fun too šŸ™‚

  3. Honestly, I think I like gold shoes more than I would have liked red with this outfit. šŸ™‚ Congrats on six years of blogging! That is no mean feat.

  4. Yay 6 years, that’s amazing. I’ve delved back into your archives many times in the past, most recently for pregnancy stuff and when your bubbas were born. I’ve never celebrated my “blog birthday” either, I think it’s nearly 4 years for me.

    • Oh gosh! If you go back far enough, there are so many embarrassing things to see. I keep thinking about deleting my archives (to hide the bodies, so to speak) but I’m too lazy. Some day I’m sure I’ll really regret posting some of those outfits on the internet, LOL!
