4 years ago today, i was mourning the loss of my beloved nana and needing some sort of avenue to help me grieve.  my friend danielle who had been blogging for years, convinced me to get typing and start one of my own.  and on april 13th, 2008, i began this incredible adventure!

this blog has changed my life in every way possible.  i've been lucky enough to meet some amazing people and make great new friends.  there have been unthinkable opportunities both personally and professionally.  i am forever grateful.


so, thank you!
without all of you reading this right now, aliciafashionista.com would not be.  your support means the world to me and i look forward to another great year of blogging!  time to go celebrate!  happy friday xo

    happy blogiversary! you and fellow fashionista alex from to vogue or bust have the same anniversary i think!? haha

    i love this shoot. the balloons are a cute touch, and what a great mint top you are wearing. i tried to get a similar skirt on sale at banana republic a few months ago but they didn't have my size. i love gold sequin skirts. so fun!

  54. Seriously, what did we do before blogging?!??

    I came across your blog just a short while ago and am so glad to have found you! Amazing style and grace and great choices in eats, too! We are so fortunate to live in Vancouver (or for me, be close to it) and enjoy the many wonderful eateries!

    I'm looking forward to all your next blogiverseries. Congrats on 4!
