Jacket - Urban Outfitters, dress - H&M, bag - Lulu's, shoes - Marais USA
I wore this on Tuesday to classes and my sister's apartment where I wrote a paper. I haven't been doing much aside from schoolwork and sleeping excessively - I've somehow ended up with yet another illness of sorts, so my mind has been functioning at only a portion of its regular ability. Anyway, this bag was a birthday gift and I'm thoroughly enjoying its minty studded goodness.
I haven't been blogging very much lately in all aspects of the word: photos, writing and "community involvement". It's been over three years since my first foray into the world of blogging, and naturally, I've since changed drastically. I desperately want to go through the list of blogs I follow and unsubscribe from those I no longer find interesting or relevant. And in all honesty, there's some on my feed that annoy me. Maybe it's just a reflection of my own laziness in the few moments I do have time to spare, but I haven't found much inspiration in other blogs lately.
I don't know, there's even times where I'm actually a bit disgusted in the consumptive habits of fellow bloggers, and I just feel like all "popular" blogs are very materialistic. I know that not all are, but I find it increasingly difficult to encounter exceptions to the rule. And at its core, I guess fashion blogging is materialistic, but I've always maintained that personal style blogging is something different. I'm becoming more intrigued by the artistic side of fashion - something I've wanted my own style to reflect for quite some time - and many of the blogs I follow don't express anything of artistic merit. It's a bit monotonous. I don't think that everyone needs to be groundbreaking or whatever - and of course, there's different realms of style blogs - but some of it is just getting old.
