I read quite a lot personal style blogs and in many of them women do such a thorough analyse of their outfits: how they found this or that garment, for what reason they were attracted to it, what they were thinking while looking at that thing and why they decided to buy it at the end. Then goes the second part, with same whats and whys, now about pairing the bought garment with this or that particular thing from their wardrobe. To be honest some of such analyses are quite boring but there are others that are really interesting to read...Anyway, my point is that all those women manage to write quite large chunks of texts. Alas, for me it is always a struggle to write about my own outfits.
The interesting thing is that if I want to write about something else - traditional costumes, my travels, some festivals or events, - then there is no problem with writing. It is only my own outfits that perplex me. Most of the times when I take a place in front of my laptop to do a new outfit post my mind is literally blank, I have no idea what I should write about the look except the obvious things like "this is a black dress and I wore it with red shoes". But everybody can see it already on the photos, so it seem rather stupid to describe the obvious.
Most of the things in my wardrobe were bought for exactly same reason - I simply liked them. No much analyzing there: I like something, I try it on and if it looks good on me and its price is affordable, I buy it. Done. Yeah, the things that attract me in this or that garment are different - it can be colour, print, embroidery, design - but that's it. Not much to write about. Take my today's outfit. The skirt attracted me with its vibrant shade of yellow. The crop top won my heart with those printed sapphire elephants. Why did I pair them together? Simply because in my eyes they look beautiful together. Then I added matching blue earrings and bangles. That's it, end of analyse!
Well, I guess I just have to accept my lack of about-outfit-writing talent and continue the "few lines text" struggle.
