You Say Goodbye, and I Say Hello

NYE style

Remember when you watched TV on a TV instead of the Internet, and actually used the TV guide? And you’d check the description for your favourite show, and it would have a tiny little “N”(for new) instead of instead of “R” (for repeat), and you’d be all like “YUS A NEW EPISODE!”. And then, you’d tune in all excited, and it would actually be a CLIP SHOW? And you’d be like “UGH THAT HARDLY COUNTS. THE ONLY NEW PART IS THE BEGINNING” (note this was me as a preteen, so I am using all caps to denote preteen-ness). Well, all in a huff, you’d reluctantly tune in because you are 14 and didn’t have anything better to do, and then you’d find yourself actually delighted to relive some of your favourite moments, because there was no YouTube or Tumblr, and you actually hadn’t see a lot of these episodes in a long, long while.

Well guys, this post might have a tiny “N” beside it, but it’s really more of a clip show. I couldn’t bit adieu to 2012 without remembering some of my favourite posts, so I went through the archives, and picked out my favourite posts from each month. Just click on any of the images for the full post. If I had to pick a favourite post overall, that might go to August, but that’s sort of cheating since that entry was a bit of a clip show already. 2012 was a year of florals, denim, belts, and pleats. And while that could be said of every other style blogger on that planet, I really enjoyed the opportunity to put my spin on all of it.

And, since I still have a soft spot for that huffy fourteen year old who just wants a new episode of Friends, there IS something you haven’t seen before at the bottom.

That final look is the last thing I wore in 2012, for some NYE celebrations with friends. It’s fun, frilly, and (of course) thrifted for $10. That makes it the perfect way to say goodbye to 2012 and hello to a brave new year. Happy 2013, dear readers!

    glad i found this gorgeous site! thanks for sharing!




    you are a cutie-pa-tootie! happy new year!



    I love this dress and what a great find for 10.00, it looks like it cost a lot more!



    These looks are fab! One of my resolutions for this year is to spend more time thrifting/vintage shopping. There is such great stuff out there if you look.

    These are great! You can look cute and/or glamorous without any effort–bravo! Looking forward to seeing what you wear, what treasures you find, in 2013.



    You had a very stylish year! Loved March, June and October.
    All the best for 2013!



    You look beautiful! Happy 2013 to you, dear! xoxo



    Oh my goodness, your New Year’s dress is so adorable! Hope that you had a very joyous holiday! Can’t wait to see what you thrift in ’13! 🙂




    Your blog is great and your outfit are beautiful. I love this last dress, the fabric is beautiful with lace and pleated skirt. This is a marvel of look.



    Oh wow- did childhood TV Guide memories just come flooding back to me, or what! I always HATED the clip episodes, did anyone like them??! That NYE dress is so beautiful and I’d like to say I can’t believe you thrifted it, but I totally can because you have powers. Thanks for being such an inspiration to me this year on living the {nearly} mall-free life I’ve dreamed of 🙂



    Wonderful looks! I adore your style. x

    Haha, the TV guide! Good memories, and I definitely remember that “N” brightening my day. Love your recap (and your style)… I was trying to pick a favorite but as I kept scrolling I wanted to call them all my favorite. I think March, April and August win for me 🙂

    Your thrifted NYE dress is SO CUTE – 14 yr old excited all-caps cute. Love it.

    Happy New Year. Look forward to following along with you and being jealous of your thrifted finds in 2013 😉



    I love your style and your hair is pretty cool!



    Okay, I just crawled out from under a rock (called Texas) and realized that you are Yen’s Julie, THE amazing thrifting Julie, and I want to be your friend forever. I love your collage of 2012 looks. Happy New Year!



    That black dress is so cute! Your november skirt is beautiful as well!
