Taking this blog in a new direction…and eating some crow.

Well, it’s been a while since I actually sat down and blogged something and I’ve been quite unmotivated to do so. I’ve been thinking for a while about what I want to do with this blog that would interest you to read it and me to actually write it. And in doing so, I’ve deduced what interests both you and I is pictures. Pretty, pretty pictures. Don’t deny it, you know it’s true.

Now, I read pretty much all of the fashion blogs, and I like to consider myself a pretty fashionable person. I like to think that I know how to put an outfit together and look somewhat decent. So I’ve decided to share that knowledge with the rest of you.

Now, I know there are already a ton of Look of the Day posts out there, and I know that some of you read a past post on this blog that may have alluded to me being sick of them, but I just have to say, that’s not true. I love those posts because they help me and many others to find little pieces that we may have not been able to find ourselves, or to find a store we may not have heard of otherwise. I love the looks that people like Sofia Gray, Mariya Nesiote, Jhusen Ketsugo, Grazia Horowitz, Uma Ceawlin, and many others come up with. They are doing a service for us and I blame them for my unhealthy shopping addiction. (Plus, they’re sweet girls, so there’s that too. :P)

Anyway, that being said, this is not going to become a Look of the Day blog. I think it will be more of just a “Look” blog. I know for a fact I won’t be blogging every day anyway, and will mainly just be posting when I think something needs to be shared.

So, without further jibber-jabber, I give you the first outfit.


When I get dressed for the day, I usually start with one item and build an outfit around it, or I think of a look I want to achieve and go for it. Today I knew I wanted something kind of “rocker chic”, but not too hardcore and I wanted to wear my Ribbon Boots from Shiny things. Thus, my outfit was started.

One of the more fun shopping experiences to have, if you can brave the lag, is to dig through the piles and piles of outfits at BareRose and find fun little pieces to mix and match. The jacket I’m wearing is from the Nora outfit and I wouldn’t even have thought to wear it if I hadn’t seen someone else blog it a few days ago. Combined with some jeans and a bright top (mine are from Zaara and Armidi, respectively, but you can wear some from anywhere, that’s YOUR prerogative) and some crazy hair and you’re ready for a concert! And I actually did wear this to TWO live shows yesterday, so there you go.
