First Fashion Week outfit. Figured it looked appropriately preppy and accidentally kinda goth-y since the requirement was "wear all black." It was incredibly difficult to find all of my black pieces and make a coherent outfit, because I never wear all one color in an outfit.
Damn, I feel like I keep doing something wrong lately. I typically don't focus on things like how many followers I have or how many hypes my outfits get, because whatever, it doesn't mean a whole lot. That's not the point of fashion blogging. It never bugged me...until I noticed that once I stopped being a major slacker and started posting to this thing again, and noticed that my response is significantly lacking compared to what it used to be. Do my outfits suck? Do I not say interesting things? Are people just opening accounts and dropping them the moment they log off? (There are a lot of dead accounts on Lookbook...) It's just a little disheartening to see some amount of "success" fizzle out so quickly. I know they're just numbers, but they tell me how well I'm received. Lately it seems to be not great, and it makes me sad. Everyone else seems to be climbing the ladder, and I appear to be descending it. Eh, I've just been feeling kind of insecure about quite a few things lately, I guess.
But I'm just going to do what I've been doing: appreciating what I get, and keep posting...because that's why I'm here. And I do have to note that what little response I do get seems to be overwhelming support. That keeps me going.
I can't make a truly sensible post tonight. I have tiramisu waiting in the fridge and my fianceé waiting in bed for one-on-one time. Later, gators. ♥
