I wanted to be a fashion blogger. I loved to play dress up, I loved my Barbies. But no matter how hard you swim, you are always a lap behind, with a bunch of other little fish in the wake of the whales.
No offense. The whales are the real blogistas of the social media fashion world with, who knows where they get those clothes? Steal? Beg or borrow? Buy and return? Jack up credit cards? Who knows.
The fact is those bloggers are truly on the edge and can stay there.
For me, I think I would rather consider myself a FashFun blogger. Being frugal but still wanting to look stylish. I want to appeal to those who can’t necessarily cop the expensive stuff but could if I share my bargain “huntress” sixth sense.
Quality is better than quantity. I’m no longer sure, exactly what 1,000,000,000 likes stands for anymore. Is there an out of the country, country that does nothing all day but create accounts and like the likes they are paid to like?
Instead of fishing for the masses, I think the idea of an intimate blog is overdue. The ones where there is actually a true connection between readers and writer. I’m not going to be the fashionista on the web I always dreamed of. Who cares? I’m just a girl who wants to have fun and take her readers along for the ride. Time to get real and live in the real world!
If you want cool fashion tips, fun places to find inexpensive but really great things to fill your closet this can be the place. My pictures won’t be stellar at times, my selfies, well, I’ve never quite figured it out – maybe I’ll do a post on that! But my goal is to have fun not make you feel on the low end of the totem pole when surfing the web pages of those overly expensive, over shot, overly photo shopped and overly just irritating blogs.
I like the idea of Boutique Blogging. The blogs that are quint and tell a different story. This is were where I’m going, I hope you’ll find me and be a part of the the story.
Todays look has been worn at least 8 times. I prefer casual over dressy these days!
