An Average Look, Justifications, and Clarifications




I hope everyone had a lovely Sunday and a lovely Easter.

I keep mentioning that I've been having serious re-thinking sessions about this blog, and I stand by those mentions. It's still happening. I kind of don't have a choice at this point.

I feel a bit artistically starved from falling into the routine of keeping my posts too structured, and only creating content for a pre-planned topic that my heart isn't always as into when it comes time to post about said topic.





Outfit posts stress me out like no other. Don't get me wrong, I love posting them, and I love seeing others post them. I have a deep, personal love for personal style and the fashion industry, but I don't have the means to support that love. I get a lot of my "style" energy out through Polyvore, which is fine, but I post a lot of the same pieces over and over again on the blog. It's almost like a capsule wardrobe, but that's not my intention.



Buying new pieces only happens a couple times a year, at most. My income is extremely low (read: please hire me), and I'm sick of buying things that are horrible quality. I've finally decided to bite the bullet and save for quality pieces. I'm all about this, but it'll take awhile until I get there. I've got to do research and save money, and learn about what brands overcharge for their products, etc. Until I can add to my wardrobe, I'll be styling the same pieces different ways, and I hope you won't become too bored with that. If you want to see me style new pieces, just check Polyvore. I don't have to shell out for that at least. I swear this isn't sponsored by Polyvore. I wish.



I'm basically trying to justify my repeat looks and clarify my want/need for more creativity and spontaneity. Does any of this make sense? Eh. Everything's a mess, just go with it.

I hope you all have a wonderful new week.

  1. I make a "schedule" for myself, too, but if I'm not feeling it, I don't write it. IMHO, it shows when someone forces a piece of writing. Happy Monday!

  2. Taking the perspective of seeing your wardrobe as a 'capsule wardrobe' sounds like a good approach. And forget worrying about your posts looking too similar - each outfit is displayed in a creatively different way, which keeps things fresh on your blog! Have a great week ahead!

  3. Hahah I always make a list by the beginning of a new month of post I should write. And then when it comes to writing them I'm always: naaaaah, I'm not feeling like it. So I have a never ending list of post ideas that I should write but it's just not happening. There are great ideas, but I definitely get the feeling that you have to feel like writing it!

    Anyways, I don't think your blog is dull and I do think the best fashion is when the same piece can be styled over and over again in different ways. That's where the art of fashion is, not in buying new pieces for every occassion. So I'm all here for outfit posts consisting of same or similar clothes, it's a place for creativity! Xx
