Why do you blog about you're clothing? Do you consider yourself fashionable? Cause you kind of aren't. Sorry.
You guys have no idea how excited I was to get this question. My very first troll!! In all my years of blogging (coming up on 4.5 total) I have NEVER gotten anything even approaching a mean comment. I feel so legitimate right now.
The troll, while mean and in need of a your/you're refresher, still asks two legitimate questions that are worth addressing.
Let me start by saying that I didn't set out to become a fashion blogger. I was shooting for a continuation of my old blog, which was mostly mildly entertaining jibber jabber. But, after my 2 month hiatus, I was having a heck of a time finding my groove again. I saw Kendi's 30 for 30 challenge and dove in. My body changed a lot with Baby 2 and I needed the closet help. The challenge, with its accompanying blogging, was so eye-opening for me that I decided to stick with this fashion blogging stuff.
I really and truly do not consider myself fashionable. I think the fashion blogosphere consists of two types of people: those who inspire and those who are inspired. I count myself firmly in the latter category and people like Syd, Kristine, and Kendi in the former.
But girls who get fashion like they do are few and far between. I think girls like me are much more common- girls with a budget who want to feel pulled together and pretty and maybe need a little help to get there.
There's definitely an element of selfishness at work here too. This fashion blogging thing forces me to think about what I wear, about what I make room for in my closet. I've become much more discerning and have cleared out a lot of junk since I did the first 30 for 30. I feel like my style is evolving and I like the way it's going. It's a really fun process. There have been hits and misses and there will be lots more hits and misses but I really am just kind of enjoying myself.
Have a question? Ask away!
