I though I’d take the time today to let you know that I’ve lost my fashion mojo. I don’t have much interest in fashion anymore. When I started this blog 18 months ago, it was so that I could share the outfits I wore, the good, the bad, and the ugly! I no longer find any enjoyment in clothes shopping, I’m sure you’ve noticed the lack of outfit posts and i’m no longer taking part in Magnificent 7th. I used to love going out shopping for clothes but now it feels like a chore, I’d rather be hitting the beauty halls or a bookstore to spend my money.
I can spend hours browsing ASOS and come away without having seen anything i’ve liked. I went shopping at the beginning of the month and picked up a top in Primark, and I’ve worn it every weekend, it has become my go to outfit of choice, it is long enough to be worn with leggings or jeans, or my favourite pj bottoms! I hate wearing jeans but I’ve started living in them. Clothes have lost their excitement for me.
I’m sure my bank balance is quite happy that I’m not loving clothes as much as I used to, and so am I. I used to buy clothes and would only wear them once or twice. I gave a lot of my clothes to the Charity shop before Christmas, but I still have a chest of drawers which struggles to close.
I think I’m going to try and create myself a capsule wardrobe, I don’t need excessive amounts of clothing. I just need clothes which I love and want to wear time, and time again. I need a wardrobe which has all of the essential clothing for work, and then a few awesome pieces to wear when I’m not at work, like the top from Primark. I have an awesome cold shoulder dress which I bought from ASOS last May. I still love it now, and can not wait for the weather to warm up so that I can wear it again.
It is time to say goodbye to the fashion element of my blog. It’s not going to be a predominant feature any more. I will of course still share with you awesome outfit posts when I discover those awesome pieces of clothing.
Writing this I feel as though I’m saying goodbye completely to fashion but i’m not, I still need to wear clothes, and I still want to look good. I think that now I am 100% confident in my body I don’t need to use fashion as the mask that it once was, I’m quite happy to find comfortable pieces of fashion which I feel great in, rather than buying many pieces which I don’t really love.
Maybe I haven’t lost my fashion mojo, but instead it has developed and become moulded into something completely different to the fashion mojo that I started this blog with. I know that I am a different person now, I wouldn’t say I’m a better person because that would almost make me sounds as though I was a bad person in the beginning, I’m just different.
