I’m so excited to finally write my first blog post and to actually start blogging! I´ve been thinking about starting my own blog since last christmas and now almost a year later I´m there. As I tell on my about page I got the idea for my blog after I´d accidently found Polyvore and after I watched the movie Coco before Chanel. I found Polyvore as I was googling a piece of clothing and found it on Polyvore. At first I didn´t even create my own account there, because I thought the sets looked so amazing and professional, that I wouldn´t have the nerve to put my amateur sets there. But after a while I realized the friendly nature of Polyvore and the community , created my profile and was completely hooked!
I watched Coco before Chanel for the first time last year and I was so inspired by the story. Going after your dreams, not caring if you or your ideas are different from the mainstream, and just being true to yourself. I also adore Audrey Tautou, she´s so beautiful and a great actress. After the movie I felt the urge to do something I never thought I´d do, and be courageous. And that was the seed for my blog.
The defining thing that made my blog a reality was the fact that I decided to do my graduation thesis about blogging, so there was no more chickening out and turning back.
My blog is mainly about fashion. I fell in love with designer clothing, but I can´t afford them, at least not now. But who says you can´t dream and imagine yourself wearing them. That´s why I decided to create a section to my blog, where I can wear all the designer clothing I can imagine. I created my dream closet , where I Photoshop designer clothing on me. They´re like a piece of art mixed with an outfit post.
I also want to show my style, which mainly consists of affordable clothing sometimes mixed with a designer piece. I usually wear clothes from shops like Vila, Object, H&M, Vero Moda, Pull & Bear, Adidas and Forever 21.
I love wearing and mixing prints. The half-sleeved jacket is from Forever 21, which I bought over a year ago from Paris. It´s my favorite jacket and I´d wear it all year around if it did´t get so cold in Finland in the winter. The top, which is from Vero Moda, has very similar print as the jacket and I love them together. What do you guys think about mixing prints?
Prints paired with a simple pair of blue denim jeans and a blue bag and a pair of Vagabond boots is creat everyday autumn look.
