Hello! Today marks the 5th year anniversary of this blog. And I can hardly believe it. When I was just 13 and started this blog, I had no idea that I would continue blogging this long nor did I realize how much I would love and learn from blogging. Blogging has provided me with opportunities to meet like-minded people, features on numerous websites and very valuable experience. Blogging has become a major part of my life and largely affects the way that I think and live my life. If I hadn't started my blog five years ago, I truly believe that my life would be nothing like it is today. Who knows if I would have still wanted a career in fashion or have such a desire to write for fashion publications once I'm out of school? 

To celebrate my blog anniversary, I donned a bright orange dress. This dress is the newest addition to my wardrobe and a very unusual one; I tend to shy away from color so it even surprises me that I purchased this one. The color is so bright that my mom stated that you need sunglasses to look at it. Of course, that's an exaggeration but I don't remember the last time that I ever wore something this bright. Years, perhaps? However, when I saw this dress at the Urban Outfitters clearance sale yesterday, the color actually drew me in and I immediately began searching for one in my size. Luckily, I found one and fell in love when I tried it on. In addition to the stunning color, I adore the textured lace, sunflower print and retro, mod shape of the dress reminiscent of the sixties. Better yet? The dress was on sale for just $15 when it originally retailed for $70. Can't say no to that! 

Round sunglasses, bright red lipstick and striped heels completed the look.

Here's to many more years of blogging!
