aldo bag; new look sandals; seiko watch
I took a break from blogging for 3 years and returned with this blog in the midst of 2013 with the hopes that I would have a more mature approach to it. Well that didn't work out.
Maybe it was the fact that I was no longer a 15 year old. Or that fashion bloggers had revolutionised since 4 years ago. It was no longer about individuality or being creative and different. Or maybe it was always never about that, it just took a more mature version of me to realise that.
I thought it would be easier when I return because I had still kept in contact with old bloggers and from years of constantly reading blogs that I enjoy, I had an idea of what I wanted the foundations of my blog to be based upon; Fashion and how it inspired me more than just being a form of apparel. This in my head was unique. This was new. It was exciting.
Sadly, exposing myself to reading so many similar fashion bloggers I realised how much the community had grown and expanded within those few years I had left. Suddenly, I saw the flaw in the fashion blogosphere. Here we are, all of us wanting to show our 'distinct' and 'creative' ideas, representing how our style defines us as an individual. When in fact, we're all the same. And this frightening thought, keeps me up at night.
I could write a million volumes journaling these thoughts. But instead, I'd rather applaud at how these shoes worked so well with these printed pants.
Florals in the spring/summer were sarcastically outcasted by Meryl Streep. I opted for an alternative with these baby blue leaves.
