Whenever I scout locations for my photos I try to look for secluded spots or areas that I am least likely to be disturbed by confused strangers trying to figure out what I am doing. I can imagine that a girl dressed up and wearing bright, red lipstick taking pictures of her self on a busy street can look a bit strange. So I understand the stares, gestures, and random comments. For a lot of people, someone taking pictures of themselves and their outfits on a regular basis can seem a bit conceited. Which is why I don't bother to talk about my blog to many people who don't understand this.
I love being able to share my style and the ways I pair outfits. I look at taking pictures of myself as an artistic medium through which I could inspire someone else's personal style. I love admiring other people's style and the ways they self express their personalities through clothing. I also find other bloggers inspiring and would love to inspire someone else. Since I have started blogging and taking outfits I have learned to be more comfortable with my body and posing. I have learned to appreciate who I am and ignore my imperfections. I have learned to celebrate me and in return I want to encourage others to do the same.
So I encourage you to ignore the selfie shame and take a few photos of yourself and celebrate who you are!!
