A Lifestyle Blog With An African Twist

Vintage Style Dress and Blogiversary

Hello and welcome to The Cooking Wardrobe.  Last Wednesday 21st January was my blogiversary, blogerversary, blogoversary.  Pick one, it doesn't matter, what matters is that it was my one year blog anniversary.  How cool is that? My followers and readers you have been fantastic.  They say "the journey of a thousand miles starts with one step" (Lao Tzu) and as soon as I took that one step,  you all joined in and the journey is becoming sweeter and sweeter, and I believe the next twelve months with you all will be great. 

I have learnt a lot within the past year of blogging but what has really hit me in the face is that people appreciate uniqueness. You might think yours is not as big as the next person's but what you are doing is worth something. 

Today's outfit I wore to church. The dress I have owned for close to ten years.  The only new item is the sandals. (Yay, I finally bought something from Zara. lol).  
Outfit Details:
Dress: Monti (Ms Demeanour Boutique)
Sandals: Zara
Bracelet: Pandora (Birthday Gift from 22)
Earrings and Watch: Goldmark
New braids, do you like it?

Thanks to Hubby, Eight and Twenty-two for putting up with me and the blog.
Thank you so much for stopping by and reading. Let me know what you think of the outfit and if you are not yet following, add me to your circles.  I will return your visit and add you back.  The more the merrier.  Have a lovely week.
