What was Your First Selfie?

Inspired by this IG post...

It's time to take a trip down SpyGirl memory lane!

My first post for this blog was a selfie, sort of:

I started SpyGirl as a place to post fake visual journal entries for International Fake Journal Month
I sketched what I was wearing every day from 3/25 through 4/28/10 in a small Moleskine blank book. I created the fake persona SpyGirl for this fake journal and she has taken me through many blogging adventures!

I crawled through my early posts to find my first documented full figure outfit selfie:

I also sketched the outfit.
Well, it took me a while to photograph myself, right? Haha.
That corner of my back patio is now totally overgrown by a Rose Geranium. [gotta do some trimming]

I'm curious -- what was YOUR first "Fashion" selfie? Did you crop your head out? Is it just part of your body (Remember Arm Parties)? Is it an awkward mirror pose? Is it your first blog post? Let's share!

10 on the 10th on the 14th

Answering 10 questions! This is a fun monthly thing instigated by Marsha In the Middle.
I officially join next month and my February post will be on the 10th.
1. Would you rather make resolutions, select a word of the year, or make bucket lists?
Hello word of the year!
2. Would you rather make memories on vacations or save for a big occasion?
I'd rather make memories every day!
3. Would you rather buy all the things on sale or shop your closet?
Gotta shop my closet. I already have A LOT!
4. Would you rather shed weight through fad dieting and do it quickly or eat differently and lose      slowly?
Slow and steady. But don't take away The Sugar. I'd rather be plump.

5. Would you rather undergo some type of facial treatment or update a room in your home?
First, I must get the rooms tidy.
6. Would you rather watch Paul Hollywood or RuPaul?
RuPaul 4eva

7. Would you rather have to wear the same color all year long or not wear that color at all?
The color is beige. It can be banished. I won't miss it.
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

8. Would you rather wear a designer look or a designer knockoff?
Just give me the Fluevogs. Support independent designers and small businesses. Avoid Fast Fashion.
9. Would you rather be overdressed or underdressed at an occasion?
As long as I'm dressed...
2016
10. Would you rather have only neutral clothing or extremely colorful clothing?
Give me ALL the colors (except beige, haha).

In the Pink with the Pink Shawl

 It's halfway through the month (what?!) and time for an episode of Shelbee and Nancy's Good Buy/Good Bye Book. The theme this month is Barbiecore™ and/or Pink. I submitted a sweater that was a Bad Buy and you can see that here.

Today, I'm celebrating a pink shawl that I bought in Brooklyn 10(!) years ago:

In the Pink


[Edit] I found my original post about it on IG:

I wore it EIGHT times from January - March 2012!
