I recently volunteered to scan a bunch of pictures for my mother. She wanted digital copies and I think it's important to keep the pictures, so I volunteered. There are a few pictures of me, and in most of them I have some kind of awesome outfit on. I have done my best to spare the feelings of others and I have mostly cropped them out. My sister makes an appearance in several of these shots, I don't think she would mind too much that I'm sharing these... I guess we'll have to wait and see her response. My brother and mom both make appearances as well, but the main feature of this post is my awesome fashion sense. Please, take a minute to really take in the many wonderful elements of each outfit. I'll point out some of my favorite things about each.
This is the part where you all breathe a sigh of relief because I have better taste in clothes now, right? Well... I realized as I was putting this slideshow together that what I'm currently wearing isn't much better.
