My interest in fashion probably began in early high school. Prior to that I payed minimal attention to what I wore and had a very “American teenage” style. This meant lots of A&F, Juicy Couture, GAP and sand colored Uggs, which was the trend at the moment.
I owe my interest in fashion to three things:
- The books I use to read (Gossip Girl, The Private Novels, The Clique etc…)
- My mother, who still has impeccable style till this day
- And of course the fact that I was living in the fashion capital (Paris)
In high school I would spend hours on Tumblr admiring, reblogging, and posting photos of my own. In a way, my blogging days started then. By the end of high school my enthusiasm for Tumblr had died off a bit and my attention was directed more towards Instagram.
Then came college…
After my first year I realized that I had way too much free time and I could be doing something more useful with my days. My major has nothing to do with fashion or anything creative for that matter, and that really bothered me because I really do enjoy expressing myself creatively. That is where the idea of becoming a blogger came about.
Occasionally I would get comments and or praises about what I wore and where I shopped. In addition to that, people would also ask me if I knew where they could get a certain clothing item or accessory and I always of help to them.
Therefor I thought, why not create a platform where I could express myself creatively but also share whatever advice and tips I had to offer? I had always been keen on giving advice to people on a variety of subjects and creating a blog would permit me pursue both of my interests.
Actions speak louder than words
It took a very long time for me to actually set up my blog. The idea’s and the enthusiasm were there, but I kept giving myself reasons to do it the next day, or the next week, next month…and that just kept dragging on.
Therefore when it was finally done and running, I think that most of my friends didn’t even believe me anymore when I told them I had a blog because it had become an idea that was just floating around.
But here I am, a year later, and I have just begun….
I was wearing:
Forever21 Fedora | Forever21 Shades | Topshop Tee | Topshop Jeans| Mango Vest | Giusseppe Zanotti Heels
I would love to hear what inspired some of you other bloggers to start blogging!
