HAPPY 1st ANNIVERSARY (October 15th, 2014) and ANNOUNCEMENT

HAPPY 1st ANNIVERSARY

Today this blog is turning 1 year. Yuhuuu! I made this blog in October 15th, 2014. The result of one year blogging is getting around 21.500 viewers and 136 followers on GFC. And the highest number of my viewers per post is 400 viewers, OOTDINDO Gathering 2015. To be honest, I'm not satisfied with the viewers and followers that I get, but I'm so thankful that I reach that number. Massive thanks to you who be my readers and followers. I feel so blessed. I want to improve my blog, style, and include my English day by day, don't want to be so easy to satisfied with my achievement. It's kinda impossible for me to be a fashion blogger now when I see the old me. The old me is super geeky, have the poorest fashion taste, my old friends know it. Haha. So also massive thanks to God who makes me who I am today. I post my before-after OOTD photos and tell you what's the announcement below. Click read more to read and see further.
OOTD photos when I started to interested with fashion (the first photo was the first time I took OOTD photo):



 Some latest OOTD photos that I took:



Do you see the different? My fashion taste has changed a lot since the first time I was into fashion until now. Sometimes I still mismatched the outfit when I try to be fashionable but at least there's improvement on my style. The quality of the photos are improve a lot too, you can see it from the 'before' photos to the latest photos. One thing that not improve a lot is the pose. Haha. I'm so bad at this thing. I need my photographer (read: my friend who takes the pictures) to direct me how to pose. Fashion makes me more confident and makes my self-esteem higher than before.

ANNOUNCEMENT

By this 1st anniversary of my blog, I want to annouce that I change my blog name from "THE PURPLE ALIEN: By Olivia Fabrianne" to "BEHIND THE FABRIANNE'S: Fashion Journal est. 2014". What do you think? The philosophy is:
1. Fabrianne is my last name, which is the name is so cool and unique (for me).
2. With this blog name, I can explain many things like the reason I made fashion blog, how it can be a fashion blog, what makes me interested with fashion, what is the purpose of this blog, my unlimited style, include explain about myself. 
3. Fashion journal est. 2014 means this blog is my fashion journal, the place where I keep my OOTD photos and the story behind those photos. And I made this blog on 2014, so yeah.

It will be so long if I explain it all here. So you can ask me in person or by emailing me if you want to know more about this. So the conclusion is: I can explain everything behind this blog, that's why I named it "BEHIND THE FABRIANNE'S".

Before:


After (designed by @oliviaziphora):

And oh, you must be curious why I change my blog name. I change it because "THE PURPLE ALIEN" sounds like a teenager blog. For your information, I'm an adult now since January 2015. Also I watched Apollo 18 (a movie about alien) and it has maken me hate alien because it's so scary (I just realized it. Lol). And the meaning behind that old blog name is not deep. Just because my friends and my brother called me an alien as a joke, and my eyes ever swollen so bad and it made me look like an alien. Just it. Not deep right? The reason sounds quite childish, I know. So I think it's better to change the name that maturer than my old blog name and choose a deeper meaning.

That's all about my blog post today. Have a blessed day! :)
