Just for fun, I decided to compare what I wore to the Connecticut Outreach Society banquet in the past. I was surprised to learn that I have attended 12 banquets and to see how many different looks I managed to pull off!

I hope you will enjoy the banquet photo collage I put together. It represents the following years:

• Top Row:1997, 1999, 2001, 2002

• Middle Row: 2003, 2004, 2005,2006

• Bottom Row: 2007, 2008,2009,2010

  1. Wonderful pictures. It a record of your ever changing fashion sense.

  2. Wow, what a varied and delightful gallery. I bet that was kind of a fun romp down memory lane as you put that together. I love that you have played with a variety of styles (and perhaps personalities?). Were you just trying to figure out what fit you best, or do you just like putting on different personas? For me it's a combination of the two: mostly as my sense of clothing style, makeup, etc evolved, I felt it reflected how I thought of myself as a woman but sometimes, there's a spike of craziness that I can only describe as "the call of the hooker within"! haha.

    by the way, clicking on the picture actually makes it smaller, at least on my browser (google chrome).

    have fun at your banquet!

  3. "You've come a long way baby". Simply adore you in that 2006 photo...the dress, shoes, earrings etc; all matched perfectly; you look great.

  4. Viv --- I just fixed the click-on-image-to-enlarge-it function.

  5. in a word -- beautiful!

  6. I like 2006 and 2002. especiall 2006, but 2002 is very elegant.

  7. Best photos are 03, 05, 06 and 07. But last year looks the most "authentic". Well done.

  8. Dear Stana,

    LOVELY! And, what FUN! I also love your 2006 ensemble the best. It's hard to beat a layered chiffon LBD (Little Black Dress) for feeling sophisticated and beautiful, yet so girlishly feminine at the same time. I have 3 chiffon LBDs that I feel ever so girly in.



  9. I agree that they are all nice photos, but my favorite is 2006. That photo shows a classy and confidant STana.

  10. Dear Stana

    I for one am mad about 2001. Off the shoulder, feather collar, long gown with an anything-but-demure slit, terrific look.

    So nice to see you accessorizing all the different ensembles with the timeless smile.

    Thanks for sharing.


  11. Yep 2006 looks like a very good year
