This week Katy from Modly Chic has given us some provocative questions for Fashion Beauty Friend Friday. Hop over there to see all the participants' replies.
1. Since you began blogging do you notice a change in the types of
things you gravitate towards while shopping?
I find that I am buying less, and more carefully. I start thinking about how a piece might look up on this screen, for example! My overall look hasn't changed much, but I do try a little harder to look pulled together. Today I chose my olive green wedges instead of black flats, for example, to boost my style a couple percent (I know, I'm completely out of control!)
2. Do you find, as a fashion blogger, that you dress differently from
your family and friends? Do they comment on that?
I'm a little more fashion-conscious than some of my family members, and I get teased. But one of my sisters actually asked me to help her clean out her closet and recommend new outfits. That made me happy. (Sometimes my sisters beg "Don't write THAT (fashion malfunction) about me in your blog!") I love my sisters.
3. What’s the weirdest fashion that you secretly like, even if you
aren’t bold enough to wear it?
Peep-toe boots. Like them, won't buy them!
4. Looking at current trends – what would you like to try but need to
build up the courage to do?
Hmmmmm. I love pixie haircuts but they don't love me (curly, baby-fine hair) so even courage won't get me there. I'll say bright colored jeans for summer.
5. Toot someone’s horn – what fashion blogger out there inspires you
with her bold fashion choices?
So many! If bold is the emphasis, I have to mention Audi from Fashion for Nerds, and Kasmira from What I Wore 2Day. But there are too many fabulous bloggers I read every day to single out my inspirations - so I'll point to my sidebar for a start. Thank you, talented friends.
Reminder: Monday June 27th is the first Visible Monday group posting for anyone who'd like to participate. The simple guidelines are here. Basically, just post something that makes you feel wonderful/visible, and send me a link to it. I'll post all the pics and links here.
