About fashion blogs.
I have given up on writing in this blog for a long time. I lacked the time and the mood required to keep a blog with updated content, and I just kind of lost my cool when I realized it would take forever if it ever where to become known. I actually started it right before the big "fashion blog boom" so I still had chances of making it. And I can't say it was bad- about 20 followers and I practically wrote nothing special. I blame that on your desire for new, exciting things in the fashion blog world. And why shouldn't you?
Taking myself as an example, I can see why the world is starting to get tired of the hundreds of fashion blogs. I, for one, when I started this blog, was following about 20 different blogs, and was inspired drom fashiontoast and dreamt of making it as big as Rumi. To me she represented everything a fashionista should be. Fast forward 2-3 years later, today, and I am tired of her blog, which in my opinion only evolved into her buying more expensive pieces. Not that I am judging, good for her. But her blog to me lacks inspiration.
The only two blogs that stood the test of time for me are the only two I check daily. Those are Cupcakes and Cashmere and Le Fashion. All other blogs have either gone downhill, or represent fashions that do nothing for me. But the style of the girls behind those two blogs has evolved in ways that intrigue and keep the reader interesting. How do they do that? With varying their content and keeping their blogs mostly free from pictures of themselves in an out-of-this-world place, with a boring expensive white get up and the same dull expression in their faces. Their style showcases exactly what fashion should be all about: colors, textures and fun.
I am too bored to keep a fashion blog. I don't have the energy to maintain it nor the resources to make it the way I want. But, besides all that, I have matured since I started it. I am now in my 20s. My blog started as a way for me to escape reality, which was really grey at the time. An unsatisfying relationship, money trouble and a general lack of interest in everyday life. I thought this blog, in addition to bringing style in my life, would also give me the funds to turn things around. I was wrong. All I needed was a change of attitude.
So, I broke things up with the boyfriend. Money troubles worked themselves out in some period of time, like it always happens. I chose to live a different life. I got more clothes, and I am still trying to figure out my style. I saw this blog today and it worked as a remainder of who I was back then, and who I am now. And I like who I am now. And you know what I realized? When I started this, I aspired to be who I am today. A confident, hotter and more stylish version of myself. I know I didn't become rich or famous from stylecrasher, but in some ways it helped my style evolve and it worked as a creative spark when it came to dressing up.If I didn't start this blog with dreams about becoming something more of what I was, I may have been a completely different person today.
I don't know what this is, or why I am writing it. I plan to keep posting inspiring pictures, so stylecrasher will serve as my online inspiration portfolio. What I hope you got from this rant is that you should dream big. You should dream as much as you can. You can achieve anything, from a bigger closet to finding your soulmate. You can do it all.
Fashion blogs have lost their glamor.
