A B. Jones Style Retrospective

April 6, 2011


If you have been with me from the beginning, you may know a little bit about my journey.. I started a blog called “The Vintage Society” back in 2007 and things took off from there. In 2009, I stalled…. got busy with styling and such and felt the name didn’t suit me anymore.. so I started up “B. Jones Style” in 2010.

When I started B. Jones Style, I played with posting only inspiration, trends and outfit ideas and I took my personal style out of the equation.. but all I kept hearing was.. “We want to see what you are wearing!”.. so it was back to posting personal style photos along with inspirations, shopping tips and everything else that I love.

During my “personal style” hiatus I snapped some iphone images just for fun, and recently came across them. What struck me was how much I still loved all the things I wore back then.. still wearing high waist anything, colors and prints, penny loafers, maxi skirts, hats, hair this and hair that.

So.. I thought I would let you travel back a bit and see a B. Jones Style retrospective.

Thanks for making the journey of the last four years so fabulous!

    Your sense of style is completely enviable and totally unimitable.
    I swoon!

    I don’t think I could pick just one favorite! I love knowing that you have always had such a great passion for beautiful fabrics and patterns.

    Wow, what a delicious post!
    Thank you for sharing your journey with us.. it must be amazing for you to look back and see, in what is like a diary to yourself, what you’ve achieved and how you’ve grown.
    You’ve heard it a million times before.. you’re SUCH an inspiration!!

    You make me want to scratch a fashion itch which has been developing over the past few years and leave my current career.
    Next step.. is a white foamboard just like yours, for inspiration and motivation.. and you’re definately on it! πŸ™‚

    you are seriously one of my fave style blogs. you really have a “gift” of being able to throw together wonderfully eclectic looks that are very high fashion, in my opinion! please keep doing what you are doing!

    TOTALLY WITH YA ON THE “high waist anything”. ABSO-FUCKIN’-LUTELY. πŸ˜›

    I love the retro-effect of the camera. You always have great outfits.

    Loving the throwback pictures, yet they’re all still so perfect! You’ve got a style that knows no season dear. I know I commented this yesterday, but I’m still so thrilled to have found your blog. xo

    This is so strange. Yesterday I had an urge to look through your old photos and couldn’t actually get on to your old blog (been a fan since the very beginning). And now you’ve posted some. Lovely! Your style has been a natural progression. C x

    This is a cool flash back. I love the 3/4 lenth black t-shirt dress, so chic!

    Girl all your outfits are so fabulous I cannot pick just one favorite!!!! That’s like asking a kid to just eat one chocolate… not going to happen!

    Congrats on this amazing blog journey of yours and styling. That is so awesome. Cheers to many more. πŸ™‚

    These are all gorgeous. I have so many favorites it’s ridiculous. You have amazing style and it seems to flow seamlessly through time. I feel like I look at an outfit from a week ago and already hate it!

  17. April 6, 2011 10:32 am

    Great post your outfits are so great. Specifically love when you use lots of layers!

  18. April 6, 2011 11:37 am

    i love the photo of you jumping with the floral skirt on….so cute!

  19. April 6, 2011 11:41 am

    What happened for me looking at all these outfit shots were that each one I would go, “OH, that’s my favorite. No, THAT’s my favorite.” and so on. You just have the most incredible sense of style.

    I love the straight hair shots! Gorgeous.

    great post, beth! every day, you make me wanna dive into my wardrobe and start taking outfit photos again!

  24. April 6, 2011 7:09 pm

    I love this look back. Even when you’re not outfit posting your still documenting your outfits. That’s a great idea.

  25. April 6, 2011 7:19 pm

    Because you started the Vintage Society that I discovered blogs. You really are a moving fashion force.

  26. April 6, 2011 8:22 pm

    I remember being thrilled when I found Vintage Society and then you stopped posting there so I thought I lost you and I threw my wine glass in anger.
    So glad you got back to personal style… I hate wasting wine.

  27. April 6, 2011 8:45 pm

    Amazing. Your style inspires me so much. Even though I just started following your blog this year, it’s still one of my favorite personal style blogs in this humongous blogsphere that is. Keep doing what you love, you are a total inspiration! Thank you! πŸ™‚

  28. April 6, 2011 10:16 pm

    You are such an inspiration! Every post is as equally fabulous as the next.
