A look back at 2011 in outfits

What an AMAZING year this has been! I gave an official start to My Dressy Ways in May and haven’t looked back since, but oh how My Dressy Ways has evolved and grown!

As I started putting this post together, I cringed a little (ok, a lot) at the first few pictures and honestly, the first few months! Great outfits but awful not-so-great photos! I can’t believe that despite all this, I still managed to grow my blog! Thank you so much for supporting a start up blog! All of you who stop by to read, to leave comments and share my blog, I appreciate you far more than I can ever express.

I HAVE to give a shoutout to my BBFF – Blogger Best Friends Forever.

It’s funny how in this quickly growing world of bloggers, you find other women who you connect with. Women who are funny (REALLY funny), stylish, smart and super supportive of each other. Thank you to all the lovely ladies above for loving me all this year!

I know many of you found my blog because of Jean of Extra Petite adding me to her blogroll. I admire and am indebted to her. If ever there was a blogger who was stylish, knowledgeable, successful and yet remained completely humble, it is Jean.

THANK YOU to my photographers – my husband, my sister and my daughter! Yes, sometimes even my daughter helped. I truly could not have done it without you. I LOVE YOU!

And now…a year in outfit posts via collage! Click on the picture to get to see the original post – thanks WordPress for making it THAT easy.

Sneakpeeq Giveaway!

You know I’m all about frugal fashion and Sneakpeeq looks like it’s going to be one of my new sites to stalk – but apparently it’s just new to me – as it currently has over 100K (pretty active) Facebook fans, 300K+ users and has been around for less than a year!

Sneakpeeq is a social shopping network and has over 500 brand partnerships that include Forever 21, Talenti Gelato (YUM!), Invicta, drugstore.com and offers products to its members in three different categories: Taste, Style and Living.

What’s fun and unique about the site is that the retail price is displayed, but you have to “peeq” at the tag to get the member pricing. Peeqing flips the tag over to reveal the special discount price. You only get 20 peeqs a day and you can also unlock badges and rewards – the more you peeq, buy and share, the more you earn.

As a special intro to Sneakpeeq, they are offering some fun incentives to My Dressy Ways readers!
