I haven't done in outfit post since L.A and I'm so out of practice I legitimately couldn't even find my camera charger. Oopsy. I don't know, I find documenting my outfits kind of a hassle if Massiel or Kimi aren't with me. People with blogger boyfriends have it way easy. But there's something to be said about documenting myself, it feels kind of ritualistic. I've been blogging for more than five years now, longer than any relationship I've had and longer than friendships, too. It's a big number, a lot of days. I think even if I'm not the most reliable 'personal style blogger' it is still important for me to make make myself visible and to keep track of myself and my changes, however subtle, however gradual. I mean, I don't think I'd be caught dead in this outfit when I started blogging. In fact, I started blogging to get away from my daily uniform of jeans and a band-t because it was getting me into detention in school (I was a freshman in high school at the time, and my school had a dress code I liked to ignore. I've never been a fan of rules, you might have noticed). Fashion didn't mean jeans to me, and I thought more was better, always. I wasn't wrong -- I live and die for super elaborate, wonderfully detailed couture, but there's nothing wrong with jeans and a t-shirt either. Whatever works for you, whatever makes you happy and comfortable in your own skin. Don't let anybody mess with your idea of yourself. I guess what I'm saying is the more things change for me, the more they stay the same in other ways. Basically: jeans forever.

 Hope you are safe and happy and whole. See you.

MLM: La Perla Presentation

laperla01

Long time no see, so what better way of breaking radio silence with back to back posts from NYFW? Kimberly Ovitz was my favorite show so far (no pictures tho, I was too concentrated and dazzled and meditating to the sick soundtrack) but La Perla was my favorite too for #magical lingerie moments reasons. I took a lot of pictures, they'll be under a cut.
