This feels weird, I haven’t written anything for 4 months, I guess I lost my inspiration and confidence in my writing, as more people I knew were noticing my blog I felt more and more self conscious and let my confidence get the better of me. However meeting like minded people in art subjects at college reminded me that I shouldn’t let other people’s opinions stand in the way of my goals. Ultimately this blog is to gain experience and knowledge about fashion so that I can get onto a Fashion Journalism course at a London university. Hopefully, when I’m there the people who thought this blog was cringey, or rejected it because they don’t understand fashion wont matter to me.
The beginning of a new year has left me inspired to share my personality online and in real life, regardless of opinions. This means no more flipping my septum up when I meet new people, no more wearing a more “mainstream” outfit to be around certain groups of people. In 2016 I resolve to well and truly be myself and gain confidence in that. By the end of this year I want to be able to approach people in the street when doing street style photography, I want to be able to wear the most outrageous (faux) fur coat next winter and the hippiest flares in summer. Every time I overcome being shy or embarrassed I will be one step closer to going to London.
Happy new year!
