I absolutely LOVE this time of year.
When the air gets cooler, the days get shorter, and the nights just long enough to become my own nocturnal wonderland. Where thoughts become ideas, ideas spring into action, and action creates the content you see here.
I’ve been thinking a LOT about where I want to see Haute Khuuture go in the next few years. You know I’ve been “blogging” for 6 years now??! Holy moly where has the time gone???…
I know that might seem like a long ass time for some of you newbie bloggers but I literally started
it as a virtual diary where I would share everything
on my radar. (Read my first post HERE)
There was no rhyme or reason, no recurring topics, no schedule, no sponsors, no affiliate links, really nothing that would clue you in to my creative process save for the fashion and the food. But it was my
special place to vent, made by
me, made for
me. I didn’t care about how many people read the blog or who followed my channels, all I really cared about was doing one creative thing a day and this blog was it.
But somehow along the way, my blog became more generic, more systematic, more impersonal than ever, like I was dialing it in for the sake of simply publishing a post for the day. It lost the initial luster, spunk, and introspection that was present in all my previous works
and as a result a HUGE part of me lost interest in the blog.
I never lost interest in the artistry, I just lost my spark.
I had always treated the blog like a personal conversation I was having with like-minded friends. We have the same interests (otherwise why would you be here?), we LOVE fashion, LIVE for food, and crave good design like our lives depended on it (which mine actually does).
I wouldn’t share any of these issues on Facebook because I felt it “too” personal for such a social network. Which is preposterous because where FB is “private” and only seen by friends personally added by me, Haute Khuuture was 100% “public” but ironically
where I felt my real friends went to get to know “me” better. Does that make sense?
You ALL know how to style a bomb ass blue velvet blazer, you
don’t need me to tell ya how to do it! You’ve got MAD style in spades but you’re here because we’re friends <3 And friends tell each other wassup
! Like where to score the best designer deals, where to shop my look, and seriously when to stop talking
fashion and just BE ABOUT IT
Soooo on this gloomy Monday evening, as I write from my desk, I’m following my intuition and going back to the beginning guys! Back to where I poured my guts out
and gave you everything I was thinking and more. Back to where this blog was born
with all that fun fab stuff mixed in.
The average person will skim through 500 words while reading a few. Here, I’ve written just a bit over and hoping these images will inspire you to read a paragraph or two.
If not? No biggie. Just scan the highlights and come back for the candor guys. I’m here all day.
