Why I’ll Always Blog About Personal-Style Rather Than Fashion

I read in the news a few days ago that people were queuing over night in Manchester because a shop had a certain pair of Adidas trainers on sale. The sale price was £85!

Apart from being on a budget, I always dress for comfort over style, otherwise my sensory problems would mean I’d be dragging the item off after an hour for being too hot/cold/tight/loose/high necked/wide necked. Plus, if I wanted to be a serious fashion blogger I’d have to get my wonky facial expressions under control, which would take far – far to much concentration from me, and patience from the person with the camera, haha!

There is also the whole thing of being an individual and not being a sheep in designer clothing but I’ll not patronise you with that rant. I know that affordable designer clothing being available in vintage shops – international street style driving trends – designers collaborating with bloggers and hip-hop artists etc. has pretty much blurred the lines between personal-style and fashion but I still think it’s really important to care more about who you are, rather than who the designer of your shoes are.

Here are some of my favourite Outfits of the Day (oldest to newest) from the five years I’ve been blogging.

  1. I’m eclectic in shopping, so I totally agree here!!! Plus, I don’t exactly follow the rules of fashion, but my own. (I never take a look at the name brands xDDDd I just pick what catches my eye!) So many zumbs up for this post!!!

  2. I agree with everything! I consider myself a thrifty shopper and usually when I go shopping I go to a Marshall’s or TJ Maxx which sells designer clothing that wasn’t sold by Macy’s. It’s a great way to get new clothing on a budget. It also satisfies my shopping bug without spending a lot of money.
