I love black and white, sometimes with a touch of red. I try on a bunch of colours, but when I really want to feel comfortable, there they come: the black and the white, in different pieces and patterns.
I wore this outfit to go grocery shopping at night.
The bag--bought in Montreal--says: "Qui pense peu se trompe beaucoup", by Da Vinci. I totally agree with his saying. Although I think we have to be spontaneous, I am all for planning ahead and examining the consequences of our actions.
I have just read a poll on IFB asking why we visit (fashion) blogs.
In my case, it's mainly for inspiration. But I don't want to get inspiration from celebrities... I like to check everyday pictures of regular people.
I don't mind if there is one or two fashion tips on the way, or a small text. I don't mind reading about a new product or promotion. But not all the time.
Some people start as independent bloggers and get kind of greedy when they realize they can make money out of it. Lots of cool blogs have been spoiled--in all senses--because of that. I give up on blogs with lots of advertising. I give up on bloggers I feel are not sincere and just want to sell a product.
It's hard to display our own pictures. For me, aside from the dedication it takes, I don't quite enjoy the show-off, but that's what really helps--myself and others. Myself, because I can learn from the experiments and exercise my creativity. Others, because of the inspiration we get from each other. Style blogs are vain? Sometimes, yes. But they don't have to be. I've been reading fashion magazines since I was a girl, and most of them include the "street fashion" section. Does it differ from what we (I) do? The answer is no. What changed is that the internet has made it easier for the audience to broadcast their own ideas... what can be, but not necessarily is, stupid and futile.
After seeing the pictures I took yesterday and struggling with every mirror I bumped into, I got to the conclusion that I may not love (different) patterns that much.
I am also not sure whether I want to keep this blouse or not. I am moving and it's a good time to make such resolutions.
Here's another look with it. I like this one better.
I love reading fashion blogs. I love seeing outfits, polishes, makeup hints and the like. Which woman doesn't? Quite a few, I would guess.
Sometimes we like a specific pair of shoes, and buy it. We like a dress, a blouse... and buy it. It can't be done all the time, though... and it doesn't have to, anyway. A cool style doesn't depend on the brands we wear. It depends a lot more on our attitude and creativity.
That said, my blog will be as follows: my clothes, different matches, one or two acquisitions on the way. My blog won't be about famous brands, because what really matters is the pieces I wear, and not where I bought them. This is my opinion.
