Well, y'all, this is my first (un)official post of the New Year! Outfits and fashion chatter aside, thank all of you for being so fucking awesome, so loyal, and so specifically - cool.
Before the year ended,
I chatted with my friends over at Rebecca Minkoff,
about why I began the blog in the first place.
I started to give my go-to response, something about being a fashion student and wanting a creative outlet. While this was all true, I stopped myself, as I've been (incredibly) nostalgic these days, and thought more about why I've kept it through the years. It's not anywhere near what it was meant to be, and thank God for that! You probably don't know this, but the blog has seen me through College, a loft apartment with no windows, all the woes of a 20-something trying to make it, love and friendship; both lost and found, and that year I thought I was fly in Lita's - well, that part you knew.
So, with the turn of a New Year, I can't help but consider all it's taken to get to this point, to be so open with you, with myself, and to keep it "ONE-HUNDRED" both in regards to what I'm wearing and what I choose to share. Back to Basics, basically. Taking on the New Year, wearing my tried-and-true uniform, 'the real me' #ootd.
