So for those of you who do not know this already, I love fashion. I have discovered that my best model for my mixes and remixes (outfits and restyled pieces) is me. I am the only one with the patience to sit through all the clothing changes without getting paid! :) I have been faithfully following some MAJA cool blogs about girls and what they are wearing. And get this...They set up tripods and take pictures of themselves! Isn't that amazing! I bet that they don't even feel guilty about it. Why should they, right?
Style Rookie (BTW this is the coolest 13 year old I have ever known, and don't know her!)
I would love to be this free, and as you can see above, am on occasion. I like finding the point in which you can see the details of the clothes and the way they hang. SO what holds me back from a full on "what I wore" blog? I guess it is the fear of being teased. I hate being teased. I shouldn't because I have been teased a lot in my life about being too sensitive (sure tease the sensitive one, she's an easy target!), about being vain (goes hand in hand with wanting to photograph yourself, I guess), occasionally speaking so fast I stutter (my brain has a lot to say and sometimes my mouth can't keep up!) or taking extreme fashion risks in a high school of less than 150 kids. Don't get me wrong I can laugh at myself and am extremely fun loving, but personal attacks I do not do well.
So this is a cathartic post as I am working on being my authentic self (thanks for that post Julie!). It is courageous to be exactly who you are and not feel ashamed or embarrassed. I feel that writing it down was my first step in shaking this feeling.
And hopefully someday soon, you will see my fully styled self with a tripod in a park near you!
