A Glitch in the Matrix : September 2009 Style

September 15, 2009

Last month I decided to rewind my blog clock for a minute and post my favorite outfits from August 2009 and since it went over so well, I thought I’d create a little Glitch in the Matrix Series at the end of each month to compare then and now. You can also find old outfit posts in my Style Archive though I haven’t updated since December 2010.

In 2009 I was still using my Canon powershot camera & had just begun taking photos outside. I would get so frustrated that my little powershot wouldn’t produce the photos I wanted to see but looking back now, they’re not as bad and I remembered. Many times I would hand-blur out the background in photoshop to try and mimic the look I get now with my Nikon & Nikkor lenses. It took me FOREVER and hated that it still didn’t look right but looking back, they’re kind of fun and different. I have a feeling the powershots made me appear a bit thinner… or maybe I just was a few lbs lighter… or maybe it was just because I was so tan then that it was a great & magical thinning illusion, but I’d like it back please. Gone are the days of epic amounts of free time to lounge around in the sun as well.

Noticing my outfits then were a little more punchy, poppy, accessorized, and rarely with a bag, which I think was because I was in such a hurry all of the time I forgot it, but it’s interesting to see how styles change even if very slightly. I used to take my photos before I left for the gallery or I’d pull over on the way or even outside once I got to the gallery… sleepy eyed and all. I’d try to get to work early and I’d edit and post all my outfit shots for that particular day, the same day. It would stress me out to no end every morning but there was something really fun about it too 🙂

    awww…love this! you look amazing (and current) in all of them. i have a nikon d40 and i swear my pics NEVER look as great as yours do. i think it’s because i use a tripod & remote. they always turn out better if i can convince my mom or hubby to take them. but then when my husband does it, he gets impatient and i end up with several of my butt somehow…LOL.

    Is that really 2009? you could wear them today and I’d still be like “this girl is so fashion forward”, my fave nude dress with the blazer, awesome!

    I’m new to your blog and I love it! The flash back is something that I’m hoping to accomplish with my blog later on down the road. I love how you were able to take a look back at your fashion style, as well as your picture taking style. My favorite is the easy-breezy jeans and tank. COOL!!

    Those flare jeans were definitely at least a year before their time! I love how you manage to look very fashion forward and yet still very classic…

    I remember these outfits! Haha. That’s how long I’ve been reading your blog – I think 2009 was about when I discovered your blog. I don’t even remember how I got there, but it was love at first sight! 🙂 The leaf skirt was one of my favorite pieces of yours – and I loved it paired with the green top. Great pics girl!

    I sometimes use my Powershot, still, and I vouch for it’s skinny-ing qualities! I always look thinner with that camera.

    Ha you actually posted a few of the outfits I revisited just last week and was thinking…hem I haven’t seen any of these pieces lately-I should ask if she’s selling any 😉 Do you do blog sales ever? Or do you pass along, consign, donate locally? Or do you build your collection? (I’d love to do this ha but I consign then pass along-just don’t have room to keep it all and it’s the only way to support my habit AND stay married! 🙂

    stainless steel business cards
    These cards are really well done. I like the ones which are useful, like the bottle opener because when used frequently, reminds of the company. That stays in mind.
    Fantastic collection, Some are creative and some are creatively useful with an interesting user interface, like the one with the ruler as you can see the company name every time you use it….
    Great Thanks for sharing!!

    The habit of playing games actually has numerous advantages that the habit of watching bad TV is lacking. According to latest study, playing puzzles or word games decreases the danger of Alzheimer disease while watching daytime television adds to the risk.

    Although watching TV is totally exercise-free as you are required to only focus, overhear and eat something. Playing games require more regularly recalling that grey substance inside the head.
