I don't mean to quote the song by April Chase but it just seemed like an appropriate title for my outfit... cropped top too short, skirt too short, haha. They had me pulling down while I walked the whole time to keep my bulging belly from showing up, or my bum. But I have to admit, combinations like this are one of my favorites, though I'm never sure if I pull them off right. Cropped tops, mini skirts/shorts, boots - gotta love the effortless edgy vibe.
On another note, I have a little thought to share with you guys tonight and some questions too. So I was in the lift at school with some classmates this afternoon and one of them asked "Hey Carla, are you a model?". I replied "No, why do you think so?". In my mind I'm confused, models are skinny and tall... and me? She answered "Well, I've seen some of your photos on facebook and they're really nice, it's like you're modelling for some online stores"... This came onto me. You see, besides Penguin, Chezka, and some close friends, nobody really know about my blog (not that I know of). I mean my family do, but they don't know the whole of it. There's a lot of reasons why I don't proclaim myself a style blogger to people that I personally know. But to make it simple, I'd say because they don't really understand what it's all about. When I've told people previously, it's like I was speaking a totally different language. I've gotten so used to it that I forget my blog/facebook page, still, is an open book to anyone whoever come across it. I realized my classmates could have been looking at my facebook page updates. Well I'm happy to know that my facebook page is getting views somehow. But then I'm curious. After the incident earlier, I've been wondering, have people that I personally know been reading my blog posts? Ho do I feel about that? Have I been sharing too much information about myself? Or too less that I'm not making any sense? And because style blogs are not so common in this region, do they think I'm crazy for doing what I do?
In this regard, I wanna hear your opinions darlings. Do people you know personally know about you as a blogger? Do they understand you? What do you tell them when they ask you about it? Do you think it's ok to share personal stuff on your blog? Have you received any comments like you're crazy for putting up too much time and effort on your blog? I really am curious. Leave me your thoughts!
