Looking back at 2016

Hi Everyone,

Hope you’re all having a lovely break between Christmas and New Year. The perfect time to sit back and reflect on the past year – it’s been super busy so to summarise I’ve decided to do a special post recapping the best of each month.

Looking Back at 2016


IMG_0397Technically speaking this post is actually from one year ago today – but it remains a favourite especially as the topic of stripes remains hot on the trend list.



Version 3Mode Suisse – always great fun comparing young Swiss Fashion talent to that which is happening in Milan and Paris.



blackrabbitphoto_blogger-7Philosophy – one of my favourite labels. It was great to find it available in Zurich especially after having seen the show in Milan – see here!



blackrabbitphot_yvonne 4_finals-11Bad Taste Day Survival – we all have those days don’t we. Such a fun post to write and confess to!



IMG_023130-40 Blogger Meet – this was one of the greatest blog events I went to this year. A huge thank you to Catherine from Not Dressed as Lamb, and all the other wonderful bloggers I met and still stay in touch with!



DSC_0216Paris is one of my favourite cities so “Paris – Secret Discoveries” has to feature as one of this years highlights.



blackrabbitphoto_yvonne blog-4How to dress for Success – essential tips, especially if working in a corporate environment or trying to start up your own business.



DSC_2814Top Trend – Slip dress inspiration. This slip dress trend has only just begun so if you don’t own one yet my prognosis would be at least 70% of you will by this time next year!



dsc_5378Milan Fashion Week – feels like home each time I go back to Milan. Can’t wait for the next Fashion week in February!



dsc_9816Converting Spring Favourites into Fall Must Haves – always a good trick for extending a wardrobe!



dsc_3245I love discovering brands so working with Winser London this year was awesome!



dsc_3007The great friends made this year through the blog and old ones I’ve been able to catch up with a little more which has certainly made this a very special year. I’ll be doing more shopping trips in 2017 so if you too are interested in joining simply send me an email to yvonne@funkyforty.com.


Are these the same posts you would have chosen? What was your favourite?


Finally a huge thank you to all of you for supporting FunkyForty.com this year. I hope it has been a good year for you too, that you have had a lovely Christmas and wish you a Fabulously Funky, Successful 2017!
