how many writers in the blogosphere keep coming up with nothing but This Is The New Garment I Just Bought posts? don't get me wrong, i think it's vital to show new pieces on the market, but isn't a personal style blog better focused on How To Put Looks Together, rather than how many clothes a person has consumed?
i'm tired of the fast fashion as of late-- buying new clothes literally every week to keep up with every trend and to sate spending cravings. i still have interest in buying pieces, but i feel so much more specific about shopping now that when i walk into a store, i feel half-inspired and half-bored, which scares me. it makes me feel as though i'm losing touch with my fashion interest. ... but then, i realize i just need to reorganize my closet for a solid spring cleaning. rather than so much spending, i need a fresh outlook on my trend interests of each season combined with my generic personal style. i need new combinations of well-loved items.
this is Back To Black, the first of many posts to display just what the heart of my personal style leans towards. looking back through the years, i've always been more inclined towards black, but i do have my twists and turns as i get bored with the monochrome. at the bottom of it all, though, i feel a combination of both gothically inclined and romantic, and it shows. in black.
