The Hiatus is over!

Well I'm back...

Sorry I have been MIA for so long but sometimes you need a break. And I needed a break. I felt like all of my creative energy was gone, I had hit a wall. A huge throw me off my game wall. I was at a crossroads, still am, and I needed to just stop and let myself be. I stopped blogging, stopped reading blogs and just lived life. It was great but I missed my blog.

I realized that part of the problem was I had forgotten why I started my blog. I never started my blog to make money off it but when reading so many other blogs where it seems like they have endless funds and just get to blog was making me unhappy. I felt that I needed to keep up. It was like being back in high school and not being in the popular group.

Something that someone in their 30's shouldn't be worried about. I have my own friends, family and man. So why was I comparing myself to people who live nowhere near me and don't even know me? Because the world has become smaller and social media makes us feel the need to compete.

I started my blog as a creative outlet while I finished fashion school and searched for a job I would love. I have finished school and have had some jobs but I am struggling to find that job that lets me combine my creativeness, love of fashion and ability to live...aka a good salary. I have decided to no longer let myself feel the need to keep up. I don't make a lot of money and I can't be constantly trying to always be on top of every trend at top dollar. It's just not real life.

So I'm back. Frugal fashionistaing it up all the way, my way.

Thanks for sticking around!

Glad to see you're back :) And yay for frugal fashion because I'm not swimming in a sea of cash either.

I am happy you're back! I get lots of inspiration from your pics and posts so have been missing that lately! It's great to see the point of view from a normal person on a budget, so keep it up and welcome back :)

I went to design school in Vancity almost 20yrs ago. I love design and the history of what design is as its constantly moving forward. However, I never found the 'it' job either. I worked in interior design and was not validated nor recognized and left the industry behind entirely after burning out. I had a family and focused on that.

When I decided to go back to work I fell into an industry I knew nothing about but who's people are warm and fun and keep me very busy. It works and I can still indulge all my fashion loves without dealing with the clique of fashion.

The Internet is a wonderful tool but in many ways has reduced all fashion to fast fashion. Not that there isn't a place for it, but it creates a false sense of what people think they know about it. Everyone and their granny has a Coach bag; that doesn't mean you are fashion.

I commend you for focusing on the fun of what you're doing. If I thought a nearly 40 year old gal like myself had a blog fashion voice I'd give it a go. But I'm too suburban now for all that.

Good luck to you!
