Two-year blog anniversary: chronicling my 10 favourite looks

Today is the two-year anniversary of 'a second glance'. Yay! To mark the occasion, here are 10 of my favourite looks, in no particular order. Check back tomorrow when I will be posting 10 of my favourite dishes.


Why I like it: The rich textures and colours pop in this outfit and I got to wear my staggeringly high pair of 'reverse Louboutins'.

Why I like itA 'funky urban' dress code challenge helped me come up with this outfit that's got a fun downtown vibe.

Why I like it: I accessorized a piece more commonly worn on its own.

Why I like itAn experiment with a bouffant updo, hair wrap and oversized hoop earrings gave this outfit a throwback vibe.

Why I like it: In another retro outfit, theatrical accessories transformed a polka-dot dress, and I carried the 40s theme through to hair and makeup.

Why I like itFollowing an inspiration photo got me layering beyond my usual comfort zone, with unexpectedly pleasant results

Why I like it: One banded belt united two tricky trends: print-mixing and a midi-length skirt.

Why I like itA couple of tired pieces from my closet felt fresh and modern worn together.

 Why I like it: Layering a knit top gave me more options for a beloved sundress, and I added one of my quirkiest thrift finds - my pearl tassel belt.

Why I like itGold sequinshot pink and a cheery clutch got me pumped up for a party that night.
