Times Are Tough But So Are You

Hello blog world! Did you all survive the beat down that was 2016? I think the general consensus was that everyone emerged from a roller coaster year a little bit black and blue, but also a bit tougher.

And here is my unpopular opinion about 2016: Overall I liked it.

Sometimes it really takes a shocker of a year to give me that ass kicking I desperately needed to get moving on things (and life). Broken heart, broken teeth, overseas adventures, fruitless job searches, oh my! Those are all major things that compelled me to start something new -- TADA! This blog: a visual journey of attempting to dress cute while being a pleb.

I would just like to open with the disclaimer that my fashion blogging knowledge can be best described as, 'There might have been an attempt at some point.' To be honest, I have no clue what I'm doing, but I'm diving in anyway. There are three things on the checklist of required qualifications I could think of to start me off on this journey, and I checked them all off.

  • Fondness for clothes.
  • Fondness for taking photos.
  • Emotional support and endless inspiration from awesome people.
  • Fuck it, why not?

I'm here to learn, make mistakes, whine about it a little, then carry on. And to you, random person (or friends I threatened into) reading this, your checklists really only need that last bullet point. Whatever it is you're thinking of cooking up (within reason... no murder allowed), do it, petal to the metal it, take that little irritating voice of insecurity that tells you, "But..." and slap it around until it shuts up.

Are you starting something new this year?
