STYLE / 100!

4 years ago in may i started my blog, and 2 years ago in may was the first style post. now, hear me out…a style column can come off entirely narcissistic…i get that. after all, i am posting pictures of myself every week and expecting people to think i’m not totally into myself. but believe me when i say this column was started out of a ridiculous love of fashion and then morphed into an even bigger love of putting a concept behind a fashion story.

it started as a way to document my day-to-day outfits…showing how i incorporate vintage into my looks…what i would wear on a date…the outfit i would choose for an interview. slowly the column evolved into more produced shoots. showing the inspiration behind my style, the decades of fashion i adore so much, and the photographers that i wanted to collaborate with. it became a hobby, really. how i could make the daydreams in my mind come to life.

for my 100th post (i can’t believe that!), in no particular order,  i thought it would be fun to take a look back over the past 2 years and show you some of my favorite posts to work on. some of them were shot in my home, others in a studio, and even a couple in other countries. here’s to hopefully 100 more (oy vey.)

    I love your definition of the fashion post. It’s refreshing to hear that you’re creating scenes for the love of fashion and unique shoot concepts. I’ve always loved your shoot themes but this makes me love them even more!

    Congrats! I’ve loved all your style posts and you don’t come across as narcissistic at all! You always look like you just having a ball of fun wearing super cute clothes! here’s to another 100!

    Brooke says:

    I really love and look forward to your style posts! I don’t think it comes off as narcissistic one bit—especially in this age of blogging where so many people want to showcase their creativity with fashion and hopefully inspire others.

    Cograts on reaching 100 (successful) style posts, and can’t wait for 100 more!

    Kerry Rose says:

    I’ve always loved your style posts…they are each unique and wonderful. Happy 100th post!

    Hilary says:

    This has been such a fun ride to follow along!! You’ve produced some amazing material along the way… styling, art direction, photography. It’s all be awesome!! Yes, please, 100 more!!!

    Sarah says:

    Your fashion posts are my favorite!!! That’s actually how I discovered you, through one of your gorgeous fashion photos that someone had shared somewhere. You put the clothing and your mood in the perfect contexts and they are always a joy to look at. True art:) Here’s to 100 more indeed!
    Cheers;)

    KAIT says:

    Your style column has become my favorite part of designlovefest! I sure hope there are 100 more 😉

    Ciara says:

    You’ve come a long way, bri! I love your conceptual style posts a lot, but some of my favorites are still the early ones that showed you as you were, in your house with your hair all crazy. 🙂

    Tori says:

    Congrats Bri! I love your style posts! And your facial expressions are always so chic and cute:)

    Much love,

    Sarah says:

    The same thoughts of appearing narcissistic kept me from sharing style posts for my first year of blogging. I added them in June, and they have since been some of my most popular posts ever! Now I give the people what they want, and I think that if you already have a fear of appearing that way, you probably aren’t a narcissist.

    leann nguyen says:

    dear bri,

    i can’t believe its been 2 years! i swear i remember when you posted like your 11th shot! i have to admit that i like your older style posts since i can relate more, but i do enjoy your more productive and elaborate posts as well. at large, i really admire everything you do when it comes to style and YOU ARE THE REASON i look forward to TUESDAYS! please keep them coming!

    your biggest fan,
    leann 🙂

    maggie says:

    These are amazing! It’s so cool to see a blog transform and grow over the years. Congrats to your 100th style post!

    Gia says:

    I would like to see someone other than you in these images. It takes away from your voice I think with all the images of you. I like your voice most about you–as I would with anyone. I don’t get it.

    Kristina says:

    You are so, so beautiful. The California Housewives shoot is one of my favorites. So cool to see how you’ve grown. Congratulations.
    xx

    O love your style post, you look so fun!

    I love your style posts. They really inspire me and make me want to push myself when creating new concepts for my own blog. Thanks for being such a great role model!

    So many beautiful outfits. So many beautiful photos. Can’t wait for 100 more 🙂

    Lynne says:

    Bri, you do the style posts better than anyone else. I think the fantasy/story aspect is part of what makes it so great. You alway seem like you are having fun, never narcissistic.

    Amy W. says:

    Such beautiful style. Absolutely love all of the photos! Very inspiring 🙂

    Chelsea says:

    All of your looks with Benefit were my favorite! I just love how much intention and work you put into your outfit posts Bri, you’re an inspiration.

    xoxo,

    Erin says:

    As a newer follower of this blog, that was very fun to see.

    Holy cow. You are the cutest thing. Love your vivacity and genuine brightness!

    I just started my fashion blog recently, and I am still struggling with the ostensible narcissism and superficiality of it all. At times, I’m actually embarrassed to share my website, especially with people who know IRL. But I have to remind myself it’s all for good fun – I love fashion (a.k.a. I’m a ridiculous shopaholic), and it’s fun to be a part of a community that holds the same feelings!

    xo,

    I always love seeing your style posts. Here’s to many more years of them… 🙂

    Maggie says:

    Congrats! Great style, lady :).
    -Maggie

    I love how creative these are – each photo has a completely different feel!

    kimberly says:

    I LOVE the more recent style posts – they are a little bit magical. I love that sometimes I have to double check it’s you!

    Dana says:

    your style posts are *more* than the usual pose-‘n-shoot style posts. they tell a story! and have art direction! love them so. also, thinking you look great enough to share it with the world is not a bad thing! getitgurl.

    mackenzie says:

    my all-time favourites were the ethereal + poolside.
    your visions come together SO well – thanks for always being an inspiration.

    Libby says:

    This post just made me realize that I have been following YOU for two years now. Your style posts are probably my favorites. Thanks for keeping me delightfully entertained and showing something that totally takes the viewer to a different place. You rock. Cheers to more years!

    Pink Ronnie says:

    I ALWAYS look forward to your style posts. Your creativity astounds me constantly.

    hina says:

    Keep on posting in style! your posts are very inspiring, and they make me travel to LA – which I adore!- every time! My all time faves are the ones with the plane (probably cause I’m a pilot, and I totally see myself flying in style like this!), and the ones with the green dress, where you are so brigitte bardot ! beautiful!

    Thanks for the update. I really appreciate the efforts you have made for this blog.

    Foley says:

    Your fashion shoots are always fun, creative and inspiring! I can’t really imagine anyone saying you do it because of you’re into yourself. I love the fact that you really create a story and every time re-invente yourself with those fashion shoots. It’s a delight to discover them and I can’t wait to see more!
    Personally I LOVED the bouganvilla and ethereal shoot. Both extremely creative and surely something you don’t see elsewhere in the blog world!

    Latrina says:

    Wow. You have come such a long way, Bri! These are beautiful! I always love your style posts. I am about to publish my FIRST ever style post on Monday. I am so excited!

    I have to say my favs have been with that Max guy-wow. However, they are ALL awesome!!!
