Alt route

Seems like you'll have to wait a few more posts before I bring some INSANELY exciting news about my artistic work. Considering how often I post here, this might take a bit longer than it sounds. Le sigh! If you're craving for some sneak peek really bad, you can check out my fanpage. No, this is not shameless advertising - this is a legit hint. Quite an obvious one, to be honest.
Let's get back to the topic. These days, I'm taking a more alt(ernative) route when it comes to my clothes. Not that I'm already sorta-kinda alternative, though; however, with the abundance of leather and studs I am experiencing right now, I'm going more and more towards that direction. I'd love to make a post just about that comfy huge flannel shirt, but the edgy choker and spiked jacket have stolen its spotlight. Honestly, I can't decide which garment makes the biggest statement here. Oh! It's worth mentioning that this time, the photos were taken by the super talented Kamila. Thank you so much!

Blog's 2nd Anniversary / Me? A fashion blogger? Oh please.

The perfect recipe for a cafe moscow anniversary outfit: pretty park surrounding? Check. A splash of red colour? Check. Sunglasses? Check. Platform shoes? Check. Optional leopard print and flowers? Also check! The photoshoot had been done July 3rd. This blog's anniversary is July 4th, but I didn't find it important enough to rush and prepare the post here and now; instead, I met with the lovely fellow blogger, Mar on that day. A long conversation with her has led me to some interesting musings, which I'm going to share with you.
This post will be somewhat different, as you will find less pictures and more of my writing. Beware. I rant a lot.

Fact: it's very hard to find a long-term fashion blogger who isn't all about clothes, statistics and sponsorship. I have no idea how this applies to other countries, but this is the sad truth here in Poland. There's this infamous Polish proverb about not taking a dump into our own nest, which simply means that you shouldn't talk sh*t about your close environment, but a). the Polish blogosphere was never my main target, b). good knowledge of English is still a rare thing among the style bloggers here, so there's a chance not many of them will catch all the lingering irony I'm implementing into this post.
With that said, I was positively surprised to meet a level-headed person like Mar in this little statistics-obsessed blogger world. And vice versa.

You see, even after those two years, I still don't really consider myself a fashion blogger (I prefer the term personal style blogger). I am not interested in fashion per se; watching fashion shows and stalking designers on social media would bore me to death. I think of myself as more of an artist - but it's still not so close to the actual state of things; to put it simply, I'm just a crazy person who takes great pleasure in admiring and creating beautiful things that happen to be related to clothes (I hope I don't sound like a special snowflake... too much). Posting on fashion message boards? Commenting on looks I don't even find interesting? Checking out trends and new collections? I'd rather invest this time in drawing a new comic page... and then dress up the way I find interesting, which doesn't necessarily have to do with what's trending now. #thatshowIroll
