If there are thousands of fashion blogs online as it is, why the hell would I have wanted to create yet another one? I get asked this a lot.
But here’s the thing: I didn’t.
This isn’t a fashion blog. This is an anti-fashion blog- I have a style that is uniquely my own, and I hardly ever pay attention to trends. In fact, I hate trends.
This is how I look at it:
Fashion is about trends. People tell you what to wear, when to wear it, and what’s ‘in’ and ‘out’. Fashion is for people with no real identity, who just follow the crowd. They’re sheep. And all those bloggers you see sporting the same jacket and toting the same bag, they are not ‘personal style’ bloggers- they have no real style. They’re fashion bloggers, showing off the hottest items of the moment, the same things everyone else has.
Style is about character. Who are you and what do you like? Those should be the main defining factors of your style. Personal style is all about expressing yourself, so don’t be ashamed to be bold, if that’s the kind of person you are.. and otherwise. Be you.
I know we all want to think of ourselves as ‘special’, and bloggers as, ‘different’, but here’s a reality slap for you- this is hardly the case. Most blogs downright suck, and very few actually contribute something new to the internet. Most bloggers do not have an original look, nor the discipline to steadily post for extended periods of time with little to no reward.
So… this isn’t yet another fashion blog. This is a personal style blog. My style.
