It's almost New Years! I was inspired by some military style at this Mexican puebla village and threw on this Zara military sweater with some black combat boots! Now I'm ready for 2013!


My New Years resolution is to become a legitimate fashion blogger, and I know some might say, "Just post pictures of what you're wearing and that's fine," but that's not really what I'm talking about. When I say I want to be a legitimate fashion blogger I mean, I want to excel at publishing original posts that are 100% authentic to my character while still being relevant to my peers and readers who happen upon it, and is of the highest quality I can manage. 

I mean that I want to take my readers on this journey with me from the ground up, instead of being one of those bloggers who seem successful but aren't actually revealing their entire selves on their site, or explaining how they got so many freebies (it's called fashion sponsorships guys! ). I mean I'd like to truly be open and honest about the work it takes to seriously tackle this beautiful and wild profession (because I am fooled no longer, it takes work and effort, constant 9-5 M-F type effort to be successful). 

I'm realizing you have to be an excellent photographer (or know a few! i.e.. model mayhem anyone?) art director, copy writer, graphic designer, html literate, well read on everything fashion (other local bloggers, national/int'l bloggers, sites, designers, stylists, magazines, etc.) It means I want to share with you all the work it takes for me to complete my endeavors successfully. 

And finally it means strapping some TNT to that 4th wall that separates you and I from really honestly letting you all know the daily grind to being succesful as a creative person (and there's def no promises that I will succeed! but atleast you will see me try my damndest all the way). I think it might be more interesting to see someone try, then to take a peek at someone whose already been successful give you tips because, well, they're already successful so I don't feel like they can relate as easily to up-and-comers.

Also, I'm psyched to really show that I'm a real live person who loves fashion, indie culture and is honest to goodness truly trying to get to know new and interesting people, because people are super interesting right?! 

Think about it, every person has their own story, and their own life and their own goals. Everyone is made of star stuff, and are a piece of the universe recognizing itself, as Carl Sagan would say! And so I say to you, take a peek into my life and watch me try (and sometimes fail, but at least brush the dirt off and try again!) to successfully engage in a community I've had zero connection with prior to this blog. Maybe it will help someone? I dunno lol Maybe it'll help by showing what not to do. 

Either way that's my resolution this 2013. And really all I'm saying when I think about this is, stop half-assing my projects and get the hell out there if I'm serious and start now! Not next week, or next month, but right now. Right this instant, because procrastination is a bitch, and that bitch wants to bring you down with her lol So I'm gonna step up to the plate and sincerely try to genuinely give it my best effort. :) It's the best I can do right? I know you'll be there with me.

What's your New Years resolution? :>
