Back to front

Blouse- Thrifted, Pants- Bershka

When you know you won't wear it a lot or just not, but you'll still buy it... Either because it's too cute or pretty to leave it behind or you convinced yourself it will be the best thing ever (even though it's like too tight, small, big, bold colour, not your style or whatsoever, because you just know you'll work it out). And then you just neglect it, forget it and stack it with all the other unwanted. 

I think everyone knows this situation. The blouse I'm wearing in the pictures is a great example of it. I bought this at a thrift shop 3-4 years ago(!!!). It was only two euros and I really loved the shape and pattern of it. A few sizes too big, but that didn't stop me from buying it. Wearing it, was a different story!

As you can see I'm wearing it back-to-front. Just trying to make it work! And I kinda like it that way, styled with my wide pants (which you don't see at all here, excuse me!). Maybe a bold clutch or a very wide hat would complete the look! So what do you think of this trend? Have you already tried it out?

Continuity

Holy moly, long time no see! My sincere apologies for being gone like forever and not letting you know. It's not that I lack ideas or love, I felt so uninspired by the whole blogging idea and what it offered me. I decided to have a break for a week or two, but it turned out to almost 5 months!

I don't really regret those non-blogging months. I stopped focusing on it and do me the best way possible. Though I felt very guilty after receiving 'where are you?/did you quit blogging?' mails and not letting you know. I wanted to write about it, but I kept postponing it. Not knowing how I would say it. In the meantime I was also overly focused on school and I must say that I made the best decision ever. I've probably already said it here, but after I graduated I decided to study further and get my master in fine arts (graphic design). This made me realise that I love to create visuals. I love to create images, gifs, publications, posters, fonts... I love to communicate through visuals. 

As I look back, when I had that long ombre hair, I blogged about the vintage clothes I've bought, created big wish lists of shoes or other fashion related stuff, captured my adventures with my pink fisheye or ended each post with a song that matched my mood. Back then, I saw myself (or people saw me) as a 'fashion blogger'. Now, I totally disagree. I love arts, music or traveling way more than fashion. But hey, it has been a big deal of what's shaped me as a person. 

What I want to say is, that I don't want to stop. Those almost-5-months-of-non-blogging made me realise a few things: I want to create visuals, encourage and inspire people, communicate with likeminded peeps, use my voice to advice and influence, share my experiences... I want to continue. Whether through blogging, social media or IRL. Oh we shall see. So thanks if you stick around, if not that's cool too. No matter what, you're all pretty awesome.

I know it's kinda vague, same with the future/life (oh so deep, lol). I could write pages about it, but I'll spare you that! Here's a quote from Martin Margiela (i-D magazine, 1998) to sum it all up.
