Asked by Gayatri
Yes I was!!! When I started this blog I dint know that ‘fashion blogging’ existed. I blogged about my thoughts, my life, tidbits and updates etc. So style blogging wasn’t exactly ‘planned’. But I was apprehensive…
(Here I go making a list again!)
a) I was conscious of being thin like how people are conscious of being fat
b) I’d never experimented with my wardrobe. I stuck to four or five types of styles and cuts that I knew suited me and I thought that wasn’t good enough to start a fashion blog
c) I thought I would start shopping more because of the ‘pressure’ of dishing out new outfits.
d) I thought no one would care to read or comment.
e) I was scared about privacy.
….turned out to be just that – silly!
a) I clicked a few pics and decided that I dint look so bad. I looked slim (like a model perhaps? ;)).
b) At least I knew what suited me and what din’t. Some people take ages to get to that stage. I could just work on it and improve. This was perfect for starting a fashion blog.
c) The opposite happened. I shopped within my closet and remixed a lot of outfits. I put myself on a 4 month shopping ban and succeeded.
d) I decided I din’t care if no one read or commented!
e) I told myself to get over it.
But the funny thing is I don’t consider my blog as a fashion blog. Until now I haven’t written a single post related to fashion and I don’t think I will anytime soon! A personal blog or a personal style blog would be more accurate!
On to the outfit! As much as I love pencil skirts, I absolutely adore skirts with Indian prints! This was a long skirt which tore slightly above the hem. So I chopped it off and stitched the hem again (rather made my mom do it) and voila!
I din’t realize until later that I almost look like am part of the tree! Oh well.. happens!
