Hi guys, today I really want to adress an issue which I feel has been around for quite a while in the fashion blogsphere, and that issue is the discovery of innovative, creative, inspiring and unique personalities within this giant mass of same-ish bloggers. Now, I’m not saying that all these bloggers with hundreds of thousands of followers, amazing professional photography and expensive designer clothes don’t deserve to be as popular as they are. Think of stylescrapbook.com, Andy Torres who started her blog from nothing just as anyone else would, doing DIY’s and taking photos every night, who’s blog style has matured and developed to become one of the most popular personal style blogs on the internet is a great example and someone who I admire very much.
Why are these bloggers so famous? My personal view is that they all share a similar universally liked style, everyone obviously has their unique qualities but the overall style is quite the same, what they do is they do it well. Every blogger deserves the followers they have, some start from nothing and make it big but also I think if you have the money to afford a professional photographer and run a professional blog right from the start, then go for it, the world is your oyster! However this leaves those with less money, with no photography or photoshop knowledge or maybe just someone with an unusual style, kind of out of the loop. Some people have all these things, some people have a few and some have none, but these are not things you necessarily need to be creative with fashion! The only problem is with all these other famous bloggers around, I can’t find the people who I want to find! … for example…
Perhaps you are a wonderful sewer and put together your own garments, maybe you can pattern cut, you might really enjoy dying clothes or bleaching them, you could be a lover of spray paint or fabric paint, you might enjoy adding new buttons to your old shirts or adding trims or even cutting two shirts in half and mixing and matching each piece to create something entirely new! Maybe you’re a beauty blogger and you have some amazing unique makeup tutorials or examples, maybe you make your own face masks, maybe your blog contains photos of you showcasing your crazy hair colours or hair styles, maybe you like making head bands or hair accessories, or perhaps you create your own jewellery. You might have some conceptual self portraits or you could even be an aspiring fashion illustrator or designer. The possibilites are literally endless and if I see blogs like this I feel really inspired and chances are, I’ll become obsessed. I want to see past the fact that someones blog may not be professional because if you have a talent, no amount of photoshop or amazing camera dslr skills is going to stop me from being able to see that you have something there worthwhile and these are the kind of people that I want to find!
So maybe if you’re sat in your seat right now jiggling around thinking “thats me, thats me!!” Then please leave me a comment, I’d love to check out your blog. Maybe we could discuss below how we could go about showcasing all these different creative people as that’s something I’m also interested in!
Just thought I’d leave you with where my outfit is from, the shirt is actually a school summer dress from a charity shop, the jacket/ shirt is from WEARECOW (http://wearecow.com/) the skirt is from a charity shop but I cut it short and its split up the middle but I kinda like it, and the shoes I got at a car boot sale!
Also if you’ve actually read all this then thank you very much for reading!
