turning two

Top- Marshalls; Sandals- Old Navy; Skirt- Thrifted; Necklace- Local Vendor in St. Kitts; Ring- H&M
Today is a momentous occasion for Tinfoil Tiaras, its my two year blog-aversary! I started this blog fresh out of University when I was working as an Executive Assistant/Corporate Event Planner and bored out of my mind.  I thought starting a fashion blog would be a great way of injecting some creativity into my mundane routine.  My first post was as wordy as a novel and two years later I'm still writing lots but am also showcasing my daily outfits, in hopes of enlightening others to the world of affordable style (the majority of my outfits cost less than $50, head to toe!) In fact #OOTD (or outfit of the day for those of you who don't speak in tweets) have become so addictive, even outfits that aren't highlighted on my blog are stored on my Flickr page (proof that I get dressed every single day, imagine!)

Since Tinfoil Tiaras is turning two, I'm showing my festive side by featuring two outfits today! The first ensemble is one I wore this past weekend (the skirt is a pale aqua colour which didn't photograph too well) & the second is a look I wore to work (sleeves become optional when you work in a basement office without air conditioning!)  Both outfits encompass thrifted elements so I'm linking up to Coffee & Cardigan's Thrifter Thursday!
Skirt, Top, Shoes, Belt & Bracelet- Thrifted; Brooch- Gifted (from my Mum)

If I had to choose a favourite post from the past two years it would have to be loving my body, imperfections and all because it's honest and open and explains how I became the lady I am today. 

I wouldn't be as passionate about blogging without all the support from my readers, your comments make me smile, giggle (and sometimes even blush!) so thank you, thank you! Here's to many more blog-aversaries! 


  1. Two is such an exciting milestone. I'm super happy for you and proud to see a sweet, kind, down-to-earth blogger who has stuck with it so long. It inspires me to do the same! I've been following Tinfoil and Tiaras for at least a year now and love every post that comes our ways. Thank you for being such a lovely lady and blogging friend!

    And for linking up for Thrifter Thursday! Both these outfits are adorable, but I love the print mixing you did in that last one. Perfect combo for these late summer days. Enjoy your weekend, Emily!


  2. congrats, Emily! I hope many more years are on their way.
    when it comes to your outfits I must point out that turquoise necklace (it would be perfect when paired with a pair of my turquoise earrings, hehe) and also those chain-like red sandals. such great pieces!

  5. Happy Happy Blog Birthday, Emily! :) I hope you do something fun over the weekend to celebrate! 2 years is a huge feat, especially if you've been super consistent (and I know you have been)
