I should really start blogging! I’ve decided, even if I can’t even pretty up my blogs with pictures, I should start somewhere right? I went on what you shall say, a blog break because I was doing the awful thing of buying everything that looked good on all the other bloggers. But, it’s hard to keep up in the style world to get good tips whether or not its beauty or style if you don’t follow other bloggers somewhat. But, I think I have a better idea of what I’m looking this time around and a bit better discipline.
Also, I’m not the most confident with how I look, my face, my style, what I wear, etc… and this blog was a way for me to share my discoveries with the world and perhaps discover what works for me and what doesn’t. Because, as I’ve noted before, pictures really don’t lie! What appears to look good initially looks horribly on camera. In fact, despite not really doing anything with my blog for a few years now, I’ve found that I did pick up the habit of taking pictures of what I’m trying on in the dressing room to get a better idea how it really looks on me.
Sometimes though, it’s still hard to judge. Like jeans, for example. I’ve been on the lookout for the perfect pair of jeans. Snug, but not too tight, no scrunching up at the knees. Butt-wise, since I have the typical flat Asian butt, something that will “perk” it up and not what I’ve discovered my latest Gap jeans give me is the “Mommy-butt” look. Small pockets with little to no embellishments. All this, and it has to come in petite size. Often it doesn’t look right when I chop off the ends of a regular sized jean. I’ve looked up and researched several brands (Joe’s Jeans, 7 for All Mankind, J Brand), but when it came to trying them on, most of them were a disappointment, and mostly, just so long. Makes me think there’s something wrong with my legs (and my legs aren’t proportional really!), but you know the mantra: It’s the jean that’s wrong. Oh, okay then. I’m still on the look out for the jean that literally jumps off the page for me. Wish it were that easy! So, until that happens, I’m still on the lookout. I’ll have to do a jean post sometime in the future 🙂
