I started this blog about six years ago because I love fashion. But over the years, I grew disillusioned with the industry. I wasn’t sure I wanted to talk about fashion because I didn’t feel like it was making a difference or didn’t educate people on anything “important.” And after I watched The True Cost documentary a couple of years ago, it completely changed my view of the industry. I lost the motivation to write about fashion and keep up with the latest trends.
Oh Tobermory, I never get sick of that place! I’ve been thinking about it more recently due to the recent cold, wintery weather we’ve been having here. *Sigh* So I decided to create a post looking back at the warm, summer days at Tobermory.
If you’ve never heard of Tobermory, it’s a small town located around four hours north of Toronto, near Georgian Bay. I suggest the best way to make the most of your stay is to go camping. There’s nothing like being surrounded by your closest friends in the wilderness (ok, wilderness might be exaggerating it a little) and just having a good time.
With no electricity and very poor cell phone signal ( … trust me, it gets better), you can actually talk with your friends or family without any distractions from the ever-present social media posts. Plus, it’s good for keeping active and having fun because there’s so many trails to hike and chores to do around the campsite. Yes, I just said chores are fun, at least only when it comes to camping.
THE SHOPPING CONUNDRUM
How is it possible for me to love fashion so much but dislike the shopping process? Don’t get me wrong, I love to shop just as much as the next shopaholic, but the process of shopping is frustrating.
Maybe it’s my impatience. I don’t know. But I get overwhelmed by all of clothes staring at me and I have no idea where to begin. I look at the people who are shopping and they’re staring at the clothes meticulously and I’m wondering, “What? What are they looking for? How do they know what to look for?” I try to do the same but I just end up glazing over the clothes or go back to my old ways — quickly browsing through the clothes until something catches my eye.
Hi! Welcome to my fashion blog. I decided to create this blog because I love fashion. Ever since I was a kid I collected, or others would say hoarded, various fashion magazines such as Flare and Elle. I loved looking through the pages, analyzing the clothes, admiring the beauty of the models, and taking note of my favourite designers. Nowadays I use Pinterest, Tumblr, LookBook, and other social media platforms to get my fashion fix. I have a Tumblr account dedicated to street style, and my Pinterest account is saturated with fashion and style boards. I guess you can say I have a “passion for fashion”.
Admittedly, I don’t take enough risk regarding my personal style. It’s very safe. The major reason is that I don’t think I have the confidence to pull off some of the style and fashion trends I admire. Hopefully this blog will enable me to take more risks, and to become more confident in my own personal style.
