Awkwardice = high fashion.
Every time I tell myself I am done with this fashion blog, I am assaulted with brand new ideas that I want to incorporate. It is almost as if I am having separation anxiety pre-separation. Yet, let’s be honest, I am a lousy fashion blogger. Case in point is that the last post was in December!
Smile, but not too wide.
The blog was instated as a fun project that then turned into a bid to write an academic paper on fashion blogging. But life happened. And shit in life happened… and the project sort of fell by the wayside.
Another in that sexy-and-you-know-it. Attitude is everything.
Not to mention I am not as prolific as I should be, as I could be. My ideas come in patches, my inspiration in bursts.
To make matters worse, I am much more comfortable behind the camera. I like being in control and facing the camera requires giving up a certain amount of that control.
Sari, not sari.
I have learnt, of course, that my photos work best when I am comfortable with my photographer, the relationship between me and the person clicking affects me (and the photos) directly. Yes, I know it’s a no brainer, but one doesn’t know for sure till one knows, you know?
So, as I scramble to finish up the final two posts, I realize I want to add more, keep adding more and more and more, ad infinitum.
Maybe, not end just yet, you know?
The light is just right.
P.S. These outfits were worn at a summer wedding this year. Normally, I am not a fan of dressing up, my go-to outfit being sweats and a t-shirt (true story), but wedding equals dressup equals fashion blog post.
Walking on air.
