Favorite Blog Post

As we near the end of the year, it's time to look back on 2015. Our high points, especially.

What was the best blog-post you put up this year? Was it an outfit post? A personal essay? Something else? And what made it so special?

For me, the best post was the mermaid photoshoot. From the moment the idea popped into my head, it appealed to me. Executing the idea with skilled help from my friend Michi was smart -- our joint artistic collaboration exceeded what I could have done alone.

Good ideas travel far. My joy at creating the mermaid post was extended when Megan Mae and Jen used the mermaid tail in their own unique ways. The rest of you are also welcome to try your hand at the tail.

When I look back on 2015, I'll have fond memories of being a mermaid.  :-)


  1. That was definitely a superb post. I loved how you looked, the whole concept of the post and the brilliant photography!!!x

  2. This post was by far wonderful and so inspiring =) Many kisses

  3. I can see why this was a favourite of yours.

    I'm not so good at looking back at my posts, maybe I should start.


  4. I agree with your choice! Loved that post and what it became. :)

  5. It couldn't be anything other than the mermaid post!

  6. I am not sure if I have a favorite post, but I can see why this was your favorite, it truly came out great.

  7. That photo is so magical. I keep meaning to tell you that you should google search the David Zyla (New York style guru) Iridescent Mermaid archetype for some inspiration. Here it is on Pinterest:
    I think of you every time I come across it. xoxoxo

  8. You look freaking gorgeous! I really like your mermaid posts.

    My favorite post would have to be from my Hot August Nights series (part 2 to be specific...but 1 and three I love too). Reason being, HAN is my favorite part of the year. I love traveling to Reno to see all the beautiful classic cars :)

  9. That is a nice post. You look beautiful and dreamy. I've never ever been a mermaid. It looks like fin, I mean fun.

  10. Being a mermaid certainly suited you ... I think that all your posts are awesome!!!

  11. Terrific choice, Ally! That was definitely a standout post here this year for me as well (and throughout all of the time I've been an avoid reader for your site, for that matter).

    I hope that you're having a splendidly lovely holiday season, my friend!
