Answer: Privilege somehow translates to power.
This happens in fashion just like everywhere else. I am kind of over it. I am over the dramaz, sort of speak. But why Joy? Aren't you overacting just a little? Fashion is fickle right?
Answer: Right! I would be one naive blogger if I didn't know that fashion is about the moment. I am just sick of living in it. I am exhausted. It started a couple of months ago when I was in a rut about what to post about. If you are reading this and not familiar with my blog: I basically post pictures from other sources and comment on them. (It is a typical low rate blog, I get that.) But I was finding it hard to find inspiring things. Regardless of how long my posts are I write and share only what I really like. I am finding it hard to find things I really like. Is it because I am getting older? Or perhaps I am just over it?
Answer: That couldn't be more wrong. I love fashion but I think my brain confuses it with style, regularly. This confusion has landed me in a creative pickle. I don't want to splatter my face and body on my blog with a "cute look" because I don't think that is all that blogging is. I was recently inspired by both Steve from Style Savage and Susie Bubble's postings about Pitti Uomo. Never before had I been interested in Pitti. Then I had a realization. It wasn't about Pitti, it was about the writers. They truly enjoy what they post about. I was engaged in every report about ceramic lapels and reinvented casual. I became inspired by what I read.
Since then I have been looking for new employment and also looking for a new home for myself. It has been loaded with stress and I haven't thought about fashion or style or this blog for a few days. Real life has taken precedent over e-life and I don't care about that. I am most concerned about the blogging climate these days....
I love my blog friends who seem more realistic than high profile bloggers and have much better things to say. They are a great reference for friendship just as my friends in real life. I have taken caution in not bashing a blogger or a certain group of bloggers because that is not why I write this. I write this to say I am sorry for posting subpar musings. I am sorry for making promises that haven't been kept. I would rather go a week without posting than subject any reader of this blog to fluff. I call it fluff, you call it what you will.
In turn, things might be a little bit different around these parts as I have plenty more time on my hands to create. Once I get moved into a new place I will start posting, on occassion, vlogs but that is further down the road. At first I was going to shut down this here blog of mine but I thought it would be a shame to let go of one of the only outlets I have to express myself. Sorry for the wordy post, if you read it, I thank you.
SEE YOU SOON READERS! And Remember....
Life is beautiful, let's share a little.
