Welp… 2012 will be gone in just a few hours. I decided against doing the normal Best Dressed/Worst Dressed lists and thought it would be even better to recap my year. You know… the best of GIG!


From meeting Stacy London, to moving to NY, to well… just read on for some of my favorite posts from 2012.



gig best of 2012

I finally got the nerve to quit my job in Baltimore and move to New York. Check out why I did it here: Goodbye Baltimore, Hello New Yawk City: The Story of My Dreams

I was on TV (3 times): Marie Claire’s Holiday Fashion Segment: Yep That Was Me On TV, AGAIN (VIDEO)Look Ma’ I’m On TV: GorgeousInGrey on The Today ShowLook Ma’ I’m On TV (again): Fox 45 Fashion Segment

I got to interview my first celebrity: SO INTO IT: Chrisette Michele’s New Look & Those Fab Glasses (oh & I interviewed her too!)

I had this bright idea to send my photos to Stacy London, look what happened: Stacy London “The Truth About Style”, Book Trailer (see me for 4 seconds, LOL) & The Weekend That Changed My Life

I got mad at IFB and wrote a post about it here: White Slim and Pretty – But what about me! (my response to IFB’s Blogging and Body Image + the Founders Open Letter to YOU!)

Oh hey me in a national magazine (did I mention I was the oldest one featured!): *Cartwheels & Flips* – See my BUST Magazine Feature!!

You know I never did finish that style challenge. I guess I will try again this Spring: Big Fat Summer Challenge: BodyCon!

I fell in love with Instagram and now I can’t stop posting pics: Let’s Have a Toast to my Instagram account …

I gave some pretty good style advice: How style your Sneaker Wedges?

And I attended some really amazing events: [watch] Curls + Cocktails + Conversations = #MOTIONSMEETUP

One perk of blogging.. the gifts: [product review + twitter giveaway] SoExcessive.com Liquid Metal Necklace

And I hosted my first event during Fashion Week: (pics + video) EVENT RECAP: Relax Renew Recharge NYFW Tweet Up at @Sephora sponsored by @ATT (#NYFWRRR)

And here was my first post in 2012: Common Misconceptions about (my) hair

See you in 2013!
