This week’s Monday Inspiration from Two Birds is Sienna Miller. Who I think is super pretty. I managed to get my act together and post about this one. Except that I don’t own anything denim that I can wear on the top half of my body, or anything white that isn’t a t-shirt. But I do own a MILLION pairs of boots (or maybe only 15… it’s really more of an obsession than a collection)
So I improvised with a different floral dress and cute ‘vest’ that I made a couple months back. I pulled the design from a book called ‘Drape Drape 2’ except that because I am a very lazy person I didn’t ACTUALLY use the pattern. I attempted to read the Japanese instructions, realized I had to trace, cut out a whole bunch of pieces, put them together, then actually cut out the fabric. So… I eyeballed it instead. And then I put my needle into the machine backwards and it took me 3 days to actually sew the tiny amount of sewing that actually needed to be done, because I couldn’t figure out what was wrong… Then I didn’t actually wear it because 1) it looks kind weird, and 2) I wanted to ombre dye it. Maybe orange-red or teal-blue.
But I haven’t done that yet because I am a very busy/lazy person.
That’s my story and here is my inspiration Monday outfit.
But the comment itself threw me for a loop because I have had the dress in quesiton in my closet for YEARS, and I wear it on a regular basis. And I thought ‘Maybe I unconsciously present myself differently on my blog than in real life?’
I won’t lie I frequently skip posting outfits that don’t ‘turn out right’ or just feel kinda ‘blah’. But I’ve never tried to pinpoint my style or create a ‘wardrobe’. I just buy things that I think are cute, and then I wear them. This ‘vest’ is one of those things that I think is cute but doesn’t quite ‘feel like me’. But I am still putting it here on my blog, not to show how ‘cool’ I am (0% cool) but because I wanted to try something new style-wise.
I do pretend to be a better social adjusted on the internet, because you guys, I am SO awkward in real life. But I don’t try to present myself a certain way… Do you guys purposefully display a certain side/quality of yourself on the internet and ignore other parts of your personality/style?
