A New Leaf

Friday, March 24, 2017

I felt I should probably share something with the world due to my lack of posting. If you hold no curiosity, please exit the screen.

Not my usual blog intro.. I must admit.

Truly, I apologize for having an opinion, but I will no longer sit here like a dog with a muzzle.

As I have grown up writing this blog, I’ve been told from different sides how to handle this or that – but at the end of the day, is there a  recipe for success? I guarantee there isn’t a perfect one for “success” but there is one for failure –  complacency from the result of conformism.

Being scrutinized for what I post, or lack thereof, is quite exhausting. I’ve subjected to posting monotone photos of outfits, dare I say, no one really cares about. Fashion is everywhere. It’s no longer blogs or even Instagram – it’s on the streets, it’s everywhere we look when we open our phones, it’s now in excess in our lives.

I love playing with clothes, buying that next new trend for the thrill of wearing on my next big occasion but why is it necessary every 2 months? But I digress, that is a different tale for a different day which I am not particularly interested in ruining my mood this eve.

ANYWAY. We as millennials .. we crave, connection, community, a sense of purpose. Don’t you think?

I am now 23 years old and even though I don’t feel too senior, there is a difference in the way I perceive things than that compared to my 20 year old self.

“Fair, point, Julia,” you must be thinking “isn’t that always the case?”

Sure is!

However, it’s stupid on my end, to pretend that I am still the same person that began SG. I don’t care about things as I used to – the latest hot trend or even the hottest party, unless of course, Bella Hadid is there.

Even though I don’t have an aggressive vocation (yet), I’d like to share some of my personal thoughts, daily regimes, and perhaps, even videos, without feeling obliged to stick to the ‘fashion’. 🙂  We may have missed the Ides of March, but I declare my own succession of opinion.

What I did want to conclude in this novel of a post? Which has rather turned into an odd jeer towards towards the fashion industry as a whole…..oops.

I hope I provide something worth some kind of value, something that betters you, or even makes you wonder.. something different from what I’ve selfishly been delivering. It’s not about me, it’s about you. I am not a role model, and I hope if anything, you’ve realized at the end of the day no one really knows anything, including silly old me. We all just imagine, create, and expect here. 🙂

And a small disclaimer, I might add that I’m forever grateful to those that actually read my ramblings and have continued to support me.

P.S. While browsing for this photo, found a peculiar editorial with Kate Moss and a poem to my liking to pair. check it out if you have the chance – here.

    Best post I have ever read! And I have read all of yours 😉 I love the maturity that is radiating out of you and the realisation of what’s important. From a reader’s perspective I understand what you mean about the fashion industry! So many trends that aren’t even trendy it’s hard to keep up! So many posts just to show people are up to date regardless of if they actually like it. I love your style and all of your posts!

    A faithful reader.
