Why I blog
I wore a uniform in school from age 4 - 16. When not in school, I would wear whatever my mom would pick for me.
In college, I was hell bent on proving I wasn't 'a girl' (hellooo issues, way too many to talk about in this post), so I wore whichever pair of jeans was laying around and clean with the closest tshirt.
After college came grad school. I slept for an average of 4 hours everyday, so getting dressed wasn't ever a concern.
I never learned how to dress myself. I told people I didn't care. That is was superficial. That it doesn't matter. But the truth is I never learned how to get dressed.
Because it does matter, doesn't it? Like it or not, you are always saying something with what you wear. After working in the tech industry for 5 years, where a lot of people truly didn't care, I have finally decided I am going to learn. I am going to start caring. I am going to find out what I want to say with my appearance, and then say it loud and clear.
This blog is a medium to document that journey. It's not going to be directions to coolness, I am not going to tell you what the latest trends are, or what goes best with a blue striped men's shirt (because hayyy the hell if I know!). BUT I hope, dear reader, if you are good at this dressing yourself business, you'll give me tips. If you are like me and trying to learn, then I hope you can identify with some of the concepts and stories on here (and hey, give me tips anyway). Either way, this is me putting it all out there. So I actually do it this time. And who knows, maybe I will finally learn what goes with that blue striped men's shirt.
