Blogging Birthday

(yikes, what a creepy looking still)

dapper kid is officially one year old today.

Thank you all so very much for reading, commenting or even just visiting. It means more than you could possibly imagine.

Thank you!

Given the number of lovely new readers and blogging friends, I thought I would take this opportunity for a little question and answer post. So feel free to ask questions either by leaving a comment or via email. I shall hopefully be posting my answers sometime during the upcoming week.

Lots of love,
dapper kid

P.S. With regards to the upcoming project, I am just finalising a few of the rules, however I shall hopefully be announcing it in full soon.

    Q: You wrote that your mom has given you great words of wisdom , what would you give your mom now that you are all grown up & wiser? ;)

  24. Happy Blog Birthday Dapper!

    I'm so happy to be a reader of your blog! It's wonderful!

    I loved the video at the begining of the post. Just super, very creative!

    Q. I'd like to know what inspired you to start taking photos. What it is about photography that makes you take pictures of what you do. They're always so wonderful, and give off the sense of having a story behind every shot.

  25. That was so sweet.

    I hope you have more great post to post & so much to photo. All the best.

    My question.

    What book would you like to see made into a movie?

  26. 生日快乐。

  30. Happy Birthday to you! I am so excited for this landmark date. And your blog has come so far. Always interesting to see what you'll post next. And of course, your vlogs are the best. You inspired my very first one, remember? :)


  31. Argh can´t see the video right now! But have a great one year anniversary, darling! I have one question: What was the first blog you started reading and checking frequently? Was it fashion-related, or more about the person´s daily life?

  32. your writing and photos are a delight dapper kid! your one of my favs, have an epic weekend ;)

    xo s

  33. :D:D

    I wish i could rename it maybe give it that little image a 2009 makeover?

    either way

    Add an award to all your birthday presents.

    You deserve it!

  34. I rarely comment on blogs, for I prefer to look, but I must say: Congratulations! Keep up the good work!

    Also, your blog is one of the few blogs that is not only about pictures, but also about words. Your writing skills are amazing, so keep writing too!

  35. What an awesome video! Congrats & happy blog birthday!

    Hmm... my question - name some of your favorite movies. :)

  36. Congratulations. My first comment, even though I've been reading for a while :) I love having a boy's perspective of fashion, you're the only boy I know.

    Which leads me to my question:

    How do you inject some style into a boyfriend/ boy friend's wardrobe without him getting offended and thinking you're going to rob him of his own personal style?

  37. oooh Happy blogging birthday dear!!! Glad I could witness it =.] It was so funny when I spotted the rucksack because up till seeing it, I had only been selecting actual arm/hand held bags, then I saw that and thought I would SO love to lug that around if I was a rucksack kind of girl. Glad you like it =.]

  38. Congrats and happy birthday/anniversary, DK!

    Keep up the stellar work!


  39. Congratulations! Your blog is one of my favourites & a huge inspiration.

    My questions are:

    - Could you pick a favourite book?
    - ...or a favourite album?
    - What made you start up a blog?

  50. Hi!~First time here...saw your title "Blogging Birthday"....so just wanna say Congratulations!


  51. happy birthday!!!!
    you're such a light in the bloggosphere, i wish you many happy blogging days.

  52. Happy Blog Birthday DK! You are one of my all time favorite blogs, and I am so glad we found each other! :)

    If you could only wear one outfit for the rest of your life what would it be? :)


  53. Happy first year!!!

    Hmmm one question...well, my go to question is always: If you had to read one book for the rest of your life, what would it be? People's answers and logic behind the decision always fascinate me.

  54. Happy b-day! I remember stumbling upon your blog in July and I've been reading ever since!

    Questions: -What is your daily routine like?
    -What is it like being one of very few male fashion bloggers in a sea of female bloggers?
    -What is your fave blog?
    -What is your favourite food/colour/season/holiday?
    -Can you include more pics of your nephew?

  55. Why did you start your blog?
    Does anyone know about your blog in real life(e.g friends, family)/ did you tell anyone about it?
    How do you deal with negative comments?

  56. Glad that I found you!! I have actually been blogging almost 4 years---gag me! Time for some re-posting, eh?

    I'll ask you a question, though---where did you get your amazing sense of style---is it genetic, or something learned?

    And also---if I ever come to London, could you show me around? I was there for only two days last year, and I adore it!!
    Never saw so many stylish people in my life, and I felt that I finally fit in somewhere!

    Anywho---thanks for the great writing and pics! You rock!

  57. hope not too late, happy birthday DK! to more write ups and birthday. xx

  58. Happy bloggiversary!

    That video is adorable. Still can't wait to hear about the project!

  59. happy one year :D

    & thank you for creating this blog! i very much enjoy it(: and i think everyone else does too!

    my question for you: where would you go on a first date?



  61. Glad u're still going strong, hope u never quit the blog until it runs out of space :o]

  62. Congratulations lovely!!!! Cant believe its only been a year...keep up the great work xxxx

  63. HAPPY BLOG-BIRTHDAY DARLING! You are one of my favorite bloggers ever, you are so inspiring, smart and stylish and I hope you keep on writing for a long time because I don't think I'd enjoy the internet this much if I couldn't read your posts every week :*

  64. Wow, I've been reading you for months, so I had no idea your blog was actually so 'young'... I wish there were male fashion bloggers like you on French blogosphere... Happy birthday!
    My question would be: knowing that the male wardrobe enables less general fun than female wardrobe (tough you play with it wonderfully), do you prize the same things both in menswear and womenswear?
    I would also love to know when you began taking photos, because I'm a clumsy beginner and am always a bit despaired, as well as amazed, when I see beautiful pictures taken by kids around my own age!
    (I hope my English is correct, if not, please forgive me!)

  65. ok, no one has asked this, so here i go:

    what is your favorite band?
    what are you studying at your university?
    have you ever been published for your wonderful writing?

    *hope those are not too personal!
    thanks! :)

  66. happy yippie birthday!
    omg, you're so cute and you're officially my blogger crush

    Q: do you have a girlfriend? *blushing*

  67. Very cute video. :)

    I have a few questions.

    1. Whereabouts in London do you find the most inspiration and why?

    2. What have you learned or gained from reading other peoples' fashion blogs?

    3. In your opinion which three qualities does a fashion designer need to be the best that they can be?

    4. Which style trends have you noticed and loved or loathed on the streets of London lately?

    5. How would you like your blog to be perceived by others?

    6. Have you ever thought of doing a street style blog, like Face Hunter for example? Do you think you'd be good at finding amazing outfits to photograph for such a blog?

    7. Do you think that living in a major city is important for a career in any area of the fashion industry?

    8. Are you as stylish in your dreams as you are in reality?

    9. How old were you when you first became interested in style and fashion?

    10. Which famous men are big style influences for you? (Actors/musicians/celebrities)

    Thanks Dapper Kid ;)

  68. one year=?? and i just found you? not very good :) at least i have plenty of post to discover in this blog!

    happy late blog birthday!!!!
