In my quest towards perfecting my personal style I’ve come to realise that the only way to truly evolve is by going out of your comfort zone. The best way I know how to do this is by trying on things I may not have thought would work for me. Case in point: this wrap dress. I saw it hanging on a rack at Dotti, thought it looked more “meh” than cute but decided to take it to the changing room with me anyway.
I’ve mentioned this before but over the last few months I’ve been going through a style crisis of sorts. It’s more than just opening my wardrobe and every now and then crying the common “I’ve got nothing to wear!” – it’s the fact that day in, day out, 90% of my clothes no longer represent who I am. It’s not great, but the news is that I think I’m finally starting to figure out the kind of style I am now striving for.
My university graduation was this time last year. It should have taken me six semesters to finish my course, but I ended up needing ten. They were the toughest and most rewarding five years of my life and that’s probably why graduation day meant so much to me. I’ve wanted to write about it ever since it happened, because the feelings I experienced that day were unlike anything I’ve ever felt, but I just haven’t found a way to do them justice. I still don’t think I can, at least not in the manner they deserve, but in honour of my graduation anniversary in two days, I figured I should try to put at least some of those feelings into words.
I’ve been a little MIA over the past few weeks, and while I hate that I’ve slacked off, it did give me time to rethink a few things. One of them is that I want to start releasing new videos every Wednesday instead, because as you’ve probably noticed, Fridays haven’t been working well for me.
