I read other blogs frequently to immerse myself in the latest trends and style, as well as keep me inspired a.k.a prevent me from being lazy and lapse to another blog coma. In doing so, encountered 2 problems:
1. Looking at their outfits’ brands and links to the online sites is making me crazy! It’s like whenever I visit a cyber store I want to leave with something in tow! MUST. RESIST.
2. Worrying about my age
I see twenty something and teen bloggers write about how maybe they would stop wearing mini-skirts and shorts when there are in their thirties. All this time I think to myself, well I am 32 but I’m still wearing minidresses (because Im short) and shorts (comfy!). Should I uhhh, stop, because kids think at that age its a little bit trying hard? There’s so much I still want to do. Its just now that Im trying on heels. And brogues. And bangles. Is it a little too late?
I have a stylist friend who was given his BIG break in his thirties. At that time his raw talent and hard work all these years paid off. I think that’s the answer to the question. True passion never dies. So does good taste. You can learn it, it can grow, and it will never leave you unless you let it go.
I was stuck in the self conscious era of ballet flats, havaianas, and giordano polo shirts for a while. Its now kinda refreshing for me to try the things I just see other people do. Im still getting used to sometimes weird comments and stares that Filipinos give whenever you walk into a room and what you’re wearing is different from the mainstream outfits. Even if what is unique is just a necklace or statement shirt.
Style takes courage I guess. Definitely gonna give it a go.
Booo to the thirties! I want to think Im still young despite my age.
But hey, you guys are free to tap my shoulder if you think I dont “dress my age”!
