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

  1. I like to check what trends are in for every season now and then , but that's because I'm planning on working somehing related to fashion, so I'd like to stay informed :D As for all the designers, fancy events and fashion weeks, they make my tummy ache, fashion industry is just not my world it seems..Which is a damn irony I want to work something related to it .With that said, I enjoy your fashion posts and crazy cool character, all of your individual interests and quirkiness, sometimes I wished you would post more often, but I perfectly understand you have a life :D
    And also, your art is what always makes me sigh in awe and excitement, it kicks ass, and I genuinely think you have some godly skillz! :D
    Aaaas for the outfit, leopard and red is now my favorite combo! Looking smoking hot with that long hairdo!

    1. My only link with the haute couture is my style guru GD, I think I wrote about it sometime last year - he's a well-known fashionista. I even watched the latest Chanel show/party because he attended it (and slayed everybody by combining his bright red hairdo with an elegant suit!). Just how far can you go out of your comfort zone for your idol, hahaha... ha... ha.

      Thank you for all the kind words, dear! We're both crazy cool, we should keep that trend (pun intended!) in the blogosphere.

      I do have a life, it's called "drawing a comic like crazy", I think. Just recently a major publishing house got interested in it, soooo I must draw as fast as I can before I get a new job.

  2. Jak mi Lechu tego posta tłumaczył wczoraj bodajże to stwierdził, że Twój angielski jest jednym z ładniejszych angielskich, jakie widział wśród tych odwiedzanych przeze mnie od czasu do czasu blogów, na których Polki po angielsku pisać próbują ;P
    A że on biegły lingwistycznie to stwierdził, że przyjemność czytanie tego sprawia... więc tego tam - przekazuję ;P

    Mam od paru dni roboty trochę, bo kończę tę moją pracę licencjacką i trochę nie ogarniam świata, temu też nie złość się, że tak późno jestem miast padać do stóp i dziękować za te przemiłe słowa :)

    A dziękuję, i to bardzo.
    Szalenie miło jest, kiedy ktoś Ci taką normalność za plus poczytuje ;)
    Bo wiesz - w tych wszelkich moich próbach dotychczasowych bratania się z różnymi blogerkami to zawsze było takim minusem moim ;)
    Choć dziewczyny nierzadko bardzo fajne i sympatyczne, to wiesz.... nie mogę się krzywo nie uśmiechać, jak pomimo paru dziesiątek lat na karku drżą przed każdym odświeżeniem Analyticsa ;P

    Choć nie wszystkie, prawda to, to jednak większość zdecydowana.

    Cieszę się, że poznałam kogoś tak innego!
    Naprawdę, bardzo się cieszę!
    Karolinko, ja wyjeżdżam za tydzień - ale po powrocie chciałabym, żebyśmy się znowu spotkały.

    Może chcesz foty?
    Lechu powiedział, że chętnie Ci cyknie jakieś ;)

    A z okazji Twoich drugich urodzin blogowych życzę Ci tego, żebyś się trzymała i żeby statystykowa zaraza nigdy Cię nie dopadła ;P
    no i żebym komiks za autografem szybko dostać mogła ;P

  3. This is why I don't think I'll be able to work in fashion even if I got there, the latest fashions and catwalk bore me and I can't and won't keep up with so much consumerism. I'm all about personal style
