My Style Stories

My Style Stories 1st Birthday + Giveaway

Hello everyone!

Exactly a year ago, I posted my first blog post… and so My Style Stories is officially 1 year old today! Yey! I can’t believe it’s been a year already; it has been very challenging on my behalf juggling family life, work and sorting out my blog. It means so much to me that I put so much time, effort and thought into each post.

My passion and inspiration started from giving back love to preloved items, looking for goodness out of the final reduction sale piles and visiting local charity shops for amazing finds and vintage pieces. I buy the must have prints or colours of the season to pair it with my old items to make it look current, putting all my preloved and vintage items together to create the look that I wanted, maximizing my wardrobe by mix and matching- swapping and changing clothing and accessories for both day and night look (and breath)… and nothing wrong buying classic and timeless designer pieces once in a while. I thought I’d share my style stories here hoping to inspire and continued to be inspired too.

Below are my compilations of my outfits for the whole year, and of course, my humble anniversary Giveaway.

I’ve also shared on my blog places where I’ve been and new experiences and events that I’ve been to, whether with my family and friends or venturing on my own. Places that you might want to visit one day or experiences that you might want to consider trying.
