Musings of a Muse - Part 44/23/2014
I'm going there. I'm about to talk shit. About my own blog post.
Back in September of last year I did an outfit post called Robot Sweater Weather (click the link to see this beautiful disaster). I was very pleased with the title of the post, but I spend a lot of time coming up with my lookbook titles (re: "warriors, come out to play" & I'm working on "on Wednesdays we wear pink") so that's perfectly understandable.
What I was not pleased with was the outfit itself. The pieces were fine separately, but just didn't work well together. What the hell was I thinking?
For one, the robot sweater is way too big on me. So much so that I feel like I'm swimming in it. Size much? And because of the oversize sweater, you can barely see the fun petal shorts, which is probably OK since I'm certain I had a wedgie. And let's just talk about how difficult it is to see crisp detail like the robots on the sweater and the white petals. Can you say: total whitewash.
I'm not suffering from a self esteem issue here. I know I'm the cat's meow and the bee's knees (people still say those phrases, right?). I just want to call a spade a spade.
Have any of you felt this way about a post? Wore an outfit that just didn't work or posted images that were just blah? Or maybe you have a particular post that's just perfect and makes you all tingly inside. Either way, let me know.
On that post I phoned it in. But I'll be sharing these shorts again in an upcoming lookbook so never fear. Your spring petal shorts prayers have been answered. And by who? This guy.
