It's been one month, 29 posts, over 64,000 views, hundreds of heartwarming messages, some haters and too much time spent on posting here instead of focusing in my classes. It has been one hell of a ride!
Never in my wildest dreams would I have thought that this little personal project would become such a success overnight. The numbers, and more importantly you guys, yes.. you, blew my mind away! I I know some of you might not be fluent in English and just take joy ,and hopefully inspiration, from the photos and visual context, but for those who do: This is my time to thank you for making all of this possible for me! To a very special friend, Lilla, who constantly nagged me over coffee, or while freezing our asses off on a bench in Millenaris watching little kids on the brink of falling into the water and screaming mothers, to start my own fashion blog. I should have trusted her instincts a little earlier… Imadlak Lillus!
I know this is starting to sound like a speech televised live from the Oscars, but I really am grateful to all those who have liked, shared and spread the word about the blog!
You guys are amazing!!!
This blog has opened several doors for me, may lead to some future collaborations,
and who knows what else if the numbers keep growing so rapidly?
I cherish this space in the endless stream of the internet as if it were my own child,
and try to improve and give you guys the best! You give me motivation to
go even further and reach for new ideas, projects and developments, some
of which you'll be seeing in the near future hopefully!
And just for the sake of being rhetoric and repetitive; THANK YOU!
If I could count the number of times I heard Matrix as my descriptor today, I'd definitely be in higher level IB math. No, I have not seen the movie, and no, I don't know who the lead woman is and until today, I didn't know she wore leather suits either. I guess besides the Ted Bundy documentary, which I advise you to go watch now if you're interested in psychopath serial killers, this was the only thing my brain soaked in on an extremely useless school day. Hurray for the four day weekend! God how I love Thanksgiving!
The only other useful thing I did manage to accomplish today were these photos, shot during my lunch break due to several of you asking about my school attire. Well, now you know: It's the exact same, except when I oversleep and wake up to the bus honking in front of my house and basically run out in my pj pants. Yes, this has happened several times in the past, and no, no one ever stared…..
PS: This sums up my life theory as of late 2012. A spoonful of leather and Docs help the medicine go down.
My last few days have been much busier than I would have expected. School, tutors, keeping up with my daily posts, the ongoing blog-sale and several meetings do take a toll on me with four hours of sleep daily. But there's always a price to pay for doing something you love wholeheartedly, and I can reassure you that it's worth every minute of exhaustion!
After having a Carrie Bradshaw " I have a closet full of clothes, but nothing to wear," moment, I went with plan B: raiding dad's closet. He's just as psycho as I am. Everything is color, designer and fit co-ordinated, making it incredibly easy for me to sneak in at 6a.m. with bloodshot eyes and partially sighted vision, stand in front of the closet and pick whatever my heart desires. Muchas Gracias Paps!
He only laughs when he sees me later in the afternoon, or screams my head off over the phone as he was the one planning on wearing it… they do say the apple doesn't fall far from it's tree!
I love clean cut, simple loose shirts, especially white ones as you can wear them a thousand ways if not more! As I do have another meeting today, I decided to go a bit fancier with a casual twist thanks to the leather pants and messy hair. Does anyone else ever raid their fathers/brothers/husbands closet? Or am I the only weirdo?
I received this Hugo Boss charm necklace after yesterday's meeting, isn't it cute?
The suitcase definitely resembles me, I'm always all over the place!
