12 Awesome Things That Happened in 2012

Well I think we can all agree that the best thing that happened in 2012 is that the world didn’t end (good thing because I was concerned I wouldn’t live to see the Girls season 2 premiere). But there were some other things that happened in fashion, in Chicago, in food and overall in life (well in my life at least) that were pretty awesome. So I wanted to take my last day of 2012 to look back on [what I consider to be] the best things that happened this year.

Best Red Carpet Looks of 2012

Because I’m itching for a red carpet post and the Golden Globes aren’t until January 13 (same night as Girls season 2 premiere…why would you make us choose?!) I wanted to round up the best red carpet looks of this past year.

Please note these are only from major red carpet events. There’s a movie premiere or some magazine party just about every week. But THESE are the red carpet events that really matter (plus I just can’t keep track of the other ones).

The Ultimate Throwback Thursday

When I first discovered Throwback Thursday (or #tbt as some of you may know) I was excited about it, but bummed I was not in possession of any photos pre 2005. Any other pictures from my life reside with my parents in Arizona. So I made it my mission on this holiday trip to look through all of them. Due to my parents’ inability to get rid of any photos from the last 24 years of my life, there were a lot more than I originally planned.

But because the weather hasn’t been good enough to lay out in and the shopping here is sub-par (besides the Barneys in Fashion Square, which I’ve already hit up) I went through every single photo and found quite a few that really make sense of my style development. I may not have always made the best choices when it comes to fashion and if you’d like to make fun of me in the comments I am all about it…but there are many clues throughout the years that really just complete the picture. So here it goes…the ultimate Throwback Thursday.

A Poolside Christmas

If you follow me on Instagram, you may have gotten the hint that I am not in Chicago right now. I’m spending a few days in Arizona with my family and I thought it would be fun to make my friends jealous to take some photos in my favorite holiday penguin sweater …poolside.
