Rebecca Through the Ages

Hello everyone! 

So I was looking around for some blog inspiration and it occured to me that I haven't done one of those 'Through the Ages' kinds of posts. I dug the majority of these pictures up from forgotten photo albums on Facebook and one or two were already up on my blog. Enjoy! :)

So I was 16/17 and hadn't a clue about maintaining hair colour or trimming my hair or anything really.  I loved that red vest and sparkly scarf soooo much. First night I ever got drunk too. I was wearing blue jeans with this.
My style then was jeans and vest tops with cardigans and little decorative neck scarves.
As in that's ALL I wore ever.

My debs! I was 17 and only a month away from 18. My dress was floor length red satin and my hair was a nice warm dark brown. I got so many compliments on that dress. 

I was 19.
Before I learned about the joys of filling in one's eyebrows
and foundation that actually LASTS!
And liquid eyeliner.
Love my hair colour here though actually. 

When I was around 20 and had awesome hair. I miss that fringe but couldn't have it now with work.
My hair was quite short here actually and this was one of the last times in my life that I wore jeans.

International suit up day when I was  maybe  20  or so. Tiny hat.  Although I was dressed up I would
definitely wear something like this with a shorter jacket and bigger boots nowadays just cus.
My hair was red again. 
My grad ball when I was 21. My hair was straight. Tiny hat + corset= slowly developing style.
Thank Christ. 

22 and a casual night in Dominion which is a goth club in Dublin city.
My hair is dyed black again and I had stopped using sulphates and silicones in my hair for well over a year
at this point. The curl is more defined and much shinier. Woo! 

22 and still with the better fitting clothes and well applied make-up.
I love that shirt.  

I look so awkward in this photo!
This is pretty much how I dress these days.
Kind of crazy when you compare to the first picture!
Neck chokers, gloves and stompy boots form the basis of my
current style.
So there you have it. I've never been one to feature in photographs so it was difficult to find some diverse ones but I think you can still get the idea! I went from casual jeans and t-shirts to a more groomed and generally improved and put together style. 

Thanks for reading and hope you all had a lovely Halloween :)

Cool post!

In that fourth photo, for a moment, I thought the black part of you hair was a hat! haha!

Cherish said...

Your current style is seriously adsldjkghdfg awesome! :D

I also like the outfit from International suit up day, the hat is lovely :))

@Chris yeah the contrast between the red and black is quite stark I can see how that would happen :)

@Cherish I'm glad you think so! I always feel like I could do better so positive comments are nice!

Thank you for taking the time to read and comment guys, I love hearing from people :)

You have fabulous hair! I'm having some jealousy. When I brush my hair dry, it straightens out.

And I'm in love with the top in photo #8.

(Sorry to be kinda spammy. I'm catching up on blog reading.)

The Irish Phantom Cat said...

Yeah that top has to be one of my favourites!

Oh and thank you, I used to have a love-hate relationship with my hair but ever since I learned a few tricks to tame it I haven't minded it too much!

Hah and no need to apologise for many comments, I love getting them! :)
