High Resolution

Happy New Year, people! As we tuck the first decade of the 21st century under our belts, and head boldly into the next one, I’d like to take a moment to appreciate the daily moments that make our lives so delicious. My coffee with a delay timer, for instance, so I can wake up and smell the coffee, literally. Like magnet to steel, the aroma of java pulls my mind out of the watery shallows of my dreaming and headlong into reality. With the proper dose of cream, it is reality I can deal with. Other delicious moments include thrift-shopping which I’ve been busy doing on my wonderful winter holiday. Two days, two Thrift-towns and a couple of armloads full of goodies. I just may post a few pics of some of my fabulous finds later, as a kind of teaser.

Meanwhile there have been many moments in 2009 that give me so much inspiration and joy, and I can’t imagine what life would be without them. Funny thing is, a couple of years ago, I didn’t own a computer or know the first thing about blogs, and now I LOVE to cruise the ether-sphere and check out what people like me are saying. More importantly: what ARE they wearing? LOL. So many amazing fashion blogs out there, I feel rather humble to be attempting to start my own, at my ripe ol’ age of, well, this lady rather not say! There are a myriad of absolutely amazing fashion blogs out there being written by girls as young as 13, 14, 15. And you know what? They are amazing! What sophisticated and sharp eyes are out there, and so good at putting together an outfit. I think fashion is truly being given to the people by the people, and fashion history is being written as we speak, one blog at a time.

My favorite way so far to keep abreast of this sea of blogs is to check ‘em out at You pick the ones you want to follow, and like a stack of magazines, you can flip through a bunch, and savor many beautiful images, seen by people all over the planet. Technology can be such a lovely thing, and I am glad to be living in the 21st century. So while I chart my course for the the next leg of the journey, and plan my campaign to take on 2010, please enjoy some of my visual finds in the bloggersphere. I will try to list all the blogs so you can check them out for yourself, and see what you might find as an image for inspiration.

Meanwhile, my new year’s resolution for 2010 is simple: do what I love, and feel good doing it. HAPPY NEW YEAR’S MY DEARS. xo. xo. -Bella Q
