So, after many months of distance from my blog, I have decided to come back.
I want to make it clear that while I certainly have been out of focus in the past, I have a new direction for this blog. I'm planning on mixing the vanity shots/outfit pics with my overall goals of becoming a better person. I'll be working on this as we go along. The new title is Mejorar- Spanish for 'to improve'.
This is not where I will spend a lot of time. I work full time, go to college, and have a life- I have friends, I practice piano, go ice-skating, and go to zumba tone classes. I'm much happier and more fulfilled than I used to be.
I still have an interest in personal style and improving my 'style'. Over the last few months I have found myself and my style aesthetic. Reading 100's of fashion blogs and being influenced by them while shopping created a crazy disconnect in me- so I stopped that too. Now I can read a select few, but for inspiration- not for the shopping/fashion addiction. I feel like my eyes are open and the fashion blogging goggles are off for good.
I don't expect to get a lot of readers- and I don't expect adoring comments. Be honest. I have no problem with negative feedback- and while I am still learning to dress to flatter my figure, I can still appreciate honest feedback. I won't be fishing for readers/comments or posting things just because everyone else is. I also will not be doing this for any incentives- no advertising, no c/o anything, no giveaways. Just me.
And here is an outfit I am wearing today, just to get this started. Yes, crappy cell phone pictures- this will not be changing. I'm not a fashion model, and I don't have a photo-boyfriend who can take quality pictures for me. I don't know how to edit pictures with photoshop. I don't have the time or inclination to make this look like a magazine, so this is what you get.
Leather Jacket- Arden B
Shoes, Jeans, Top, Bracelet- JCPenny
Necklace- Debs from 05?
Earrings- too old to remember
ETA: I wanted to comment on what could improve each outfit. So I'll start here- the shoes are too matchy matchy, something more fun would be great like a purple shoe instead. Which I don't own, so these made do. The jewelry is kind of too 'going out' or night-time, but I thought it was fun.
also, I didn't realize I left this private. oooppps. :)
One last thing. Please, don't comment just to throw your link or giveaway on my blog. Comment because you want to, not because you want traffic.
