"All blogs post the same stuff"

I really respect her for wearing this. I feel like my style is always different.  When I'm choosing my outfit for the day, if I feel a little more "bad ass" then I'm going to wear destroyed denim shorts, sheer knee highs and leather boots or jacket.  And if I'm feeling preppy-glam, then I'll wear something like a high waist pencil skirt, sequin top, arm candy, and rings on every finger.

I've come across blogs overtime that have excellent photographs and styling... But aren't recognized for it as they should, because they do not fit into a "category".  Your personal style should show your feelings and your likes.  Not necessarily whats currently in or whats the newest.  I feel there is a lot of pressure on fashion bloggers to always have whats new, when not every blogger have the funds for it.
I always want my blog to be true to myself and my readers.  I would never post something for the sake of being approved because everyone seems to fancy it.  I purchase what I like and I wear what style I feel at that moment. Everyday is different for me whether it be grungy, classic, girly, sophisticated, sexy, rocker, or boho, etc. 

A little flashback... Before I was even a teen I would lay out my magazines on my bedroom floor at the end of each month and snip, snip, snip. I cut out everything that I loved, and would create different looks and pasted them into notebooks.  Now, between my blog and my tumblr I do the same thing.  I post photos of my daily style, or post/reblog photos, videos, or music.  Based on how I'm feeling, what I like, and whats inspiring me.  From a notebook on my bedside table has now moved to a national webpage, blogger and tumblr.  Live for anyone in any country to enjoy, or even to hate.  And I'm fine with that.  I don't want my blog to be about numbers, and followers.  Its one big public journal for me.  Containing myself, likes, adventures, inspirations, and laughs that I want anyone to enjoy as well.



  1. Hi, nice post. I have been wondering about this topic, so thanks for sharing. I will certainly be subscribing to your blog.

  2. Hey I just posted about the same t-shirt and essentially the same sentiments! I wish blogging could be so much more than it is right now...

  3. Hi Lauren, Interesting to find out that there is a growing number of websites and blogs posting about this subject. I completely feel what you are saying clothing should be about expressing yourself and not the mass esthetic feeling. Though I am not 'a blogger', I do have a blog to give more inspiration and vision on my eBoutique filled with vintage finds - www.TheStyleLion.com


I read all comments made and will take a look at your blog as well.
