I returned to photoshoots and posting last year June after abandoning this space for the majority of 2017. Sometimes, I wonder whether it is necessary to continue to post on this platform since instagram gets all the traffic, does anyone even stop by to read this or give a damn about what I have to say or wear? For me, this space has never been about accumulating material things, fame or followers but to show others that its possible to be stylish by utilizing the little or the most that they may have in their closet. I know it sounds cliche but this blog is truly my creative outlet and however many years later, I still gain joy posting despite all the hardwork involved in creating content.
I ‘ve been blogging for a hot minute now but finally reached the point where I feel that ” my style” is beginning to reflect the point of view that I always envisioned. I was able to reach this breakthrough because I stopped caring about what other influencers are doing but rather decided to work on nailing my own aesthetic. it’s not fun when everyone looks the same or wears the same clothes or “it” items over and over again. My little space here on the internet, came about as a result of following other bloggers whose inimitable personal style inspired me. As a content creator, its safe to be average, do what everyone else does and follow the same formula like every other influencer, but I hate average. Since, it is getting ever difficult to stand out in the blogosphere or social media, the only way to stand out is to stick to being 100 percent you. I take pride in my individuality and I hope you take pride in yours too.
Speaking of individuality, I decided to get a little creative with my Pleats Please pleated pants previously worn here. This time around I layered my Pleats Please asymmetric skirt over them and topped it all off with my fringe blouse for added texture. Another magical feature other than the wrinkle free aspect of the Pleats Please collection is the movement of the fabric as it falls on the wearer’s body in unexpected ways. This movement was captured perfectly by the lens of Minneapolis photographer Hector Roberts.
