No. 100 // MY FAVORITE COLOR COMBO

THROWBACK // 

Pink and Red has to be one of my favorite color combo of ALL-TIME most loved. This outfit was one of my most loved from all of last year.

Question: Does it ever bother you that part of your job involves so much consumption of material goods?

Answer: I would be lying if I said it isn’t something I think about often. I have always loved fashion and truly do value, keep, and cherish almost everything in my closet. I make a very planned effort not to buy just to buy. Being a part of the fashion industry, and making part of my income based on promoting and wearing new items, I did start to feel a bit overwhelmed and ashamed of how much I was accumulating. Last year I made several changes to address this issue. First, I began to borrow more clothing from PR companies, friends, and brands, particularly for events and occasions where I would most likely be wearing a piece one or two times. I also increased the amount that I have been buying (and reselling) from used sited like The Real Real and Poshmark. I have also increased the ‘Edit & Etc.’ section of my site, which has me posting more collages and roundups, allowing me to talk about what trends and brands I am interested in, without necessarily having to purchase the products and wear them myself. And finally, I have been re-wearing items and showcasing them in new ways. I do think it is important for readers to understand that I don’t really wear something new every single day. In fact, most of the items that I promote I still love to wear in new ways years later. For example, the dress I wore in my very first outfit post back in 2010, I still own and wore last week! I am still finding a balance in all of this – educating and inspiring my readers with style and fashion through my outfit looks and editorial content – but doing so in a responsible way!

    Blair, I think it’s such a great idea that you addressed this issue and I’m glad to see that your are doing something about it.

    I think that being stylish also involves being able to get creative and stylish clothes in different ways. This is something fashion bloggers should do more often instead of wearing new things every day, it makes them more approachable and everyone appreciates conscious influencers 🙂

    Good to know that you are becoming more conscious about it! I always admire your style and do notice you re-wear some of your pieces. Which I think is amazing!
