It's been a crazy couple of days here in the Anthro-centric fashion blogging community.
Every time I've set out to blog in recent days, I open my laptop and promptly get distracted by something else. This has less to do with a busy lifestyle and more with the distinct lack of motivation to write about something as frivolous as fashion and style in light of the events in the last week. With this tight of a Anthro community and its recent shake-up by one of the more popular blogs, I've been forced to re-evaluate blogging all together. One of the reasons I hesitated in creating a blog at all back at the end of 2010 is because I worried about the perception of narcissism and self-promoting blogging could represent. The act of putting yourself out there on the Internet for all to see could also lead to a breach in privacy -- once information is out on the web, it's probably there to stay. The truth is that any facet of ourselves that we share with the outside world also opens up a vulnerability that could be exploited at any time. In the end, it was the sense of togetherness that the fashion blogging community and an opportunity to chronicle the development of personal style that led me to forge ahead and put my blog out there.
Well, where does recent events leave this blog now? The community is shaken in light of the dishonesty and scamming of the Anthro "It" girl of the season, casting a foreboding shadow on anyone that was even remotely connected with her. My thoughts are with the victims, and I hope that you will get the retribution that you deserve. But the fact of the matter is, the journey and the point of this blog remains the same.
to look for: Style is exactly what the title of the blog depicts. It's a chronicle of outfits, fashion speculations and creativity that I will be able to use to figure out what works for my body, share creative ideas with the community and self evaluate how I project myself to the world. It's a continuous work in progress and admittedly, I have fallen behind in developing this little project of mine to the full fruition of its original concept, but I've decided to continue posting here. I know others are shaken up enough to halt their blogging, but I'm still having a good time. And really, that's all that matters, right?
Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you will continue to visit in the days to come. If not, I totally understand and wish you all the best.
Ok, enough srsness. Back to our regularly scheduled programming shortly.
