I honestly don’t think I have the nack for fashion. I know I’m only 18 but I feel like no matter what I do, nothing works out. All I want to do is get a job or an internship at a magazine and work my way up - I don’t care what I do or how hard I have to work for next to no money, I just want to do it, but I don’t think I’m good enough. I don’t even know if this ramble is making sense cus I cba to check it but CAN SOMEONE JUST GIVE ME A JOB PLEASE?
I would say things like don’t worry, don’t give up, fight for your dreams etc but I’ve been where you are and I think you need to hear something helpful right now! Firstly, I can see from the things you post and the way your blog is laid out, you have a real eye for design, art and fashion - you seem to have the natural talent! I think a common problem that develops when you get too involved with fashion is that you start to only look at images from fashion magazines/websites/etc, whereas the most successful people in fashion focus on art, architecture, interior design, graphic design etc. It’s obviously important to look at fashion sources as well but often you can end up learning from only this narrow tunnel of the often “dull” world of fashion and it restricts your ideas – you’d be (not you, but in general) more creative and innovative if you gained ideas from design outside the fashion world. As exciting as it is, the fashion world, especially on tumblr and other sites, can become like a neverending recycling bin…and to further yourself you really have to look outside the box. Hope this was in someway helpful and that I didn’t sound like some snobby know it all…I don’t have everything figured out either, but I have been where you are :)
(also woah, I’ve written a novel? wut)
just to say, the fact that i don’t have a huuge number of followers is what encourages me to do this..i know i would get a lot of hate for this if i did…so…
WHAT’S THE BIG DEAL ABOUT ADELE?
i don’t understand. yes, she has a great voice. however, when your songs are not…extremely good, what use is that? i’m sorry..i liked “someone like you”, but “rolling in the deep” and that new fire set rain whatever thing is utter shit. i guess, this has more to do with the fact that i get annoyed when some people think how just because someone writes their own songs and has a good voice, they must be a good musician. therefore, no disrespect to adele. good for her for making a career for herself. i just don’t get what the big deal is with her…her songs aren’t very good. i don’t understand how she’s prided as being some kind of music writing genius…writing catchy, money-making songs is not the same as writing actual good music. same goes for ellie goulding. and you, eliza doolittle. and with that, i shall wrap up my kind of meangingless, unfinished, unconcluded rant. i’ll be making some kind of proper music playlist thingy soon.
