On The Real: What Happens to the Fashion?

Hey Everyone!  Welcome back to Eat Your Glitter!  If you’re new to the party, ✨Welcome Glitter shower for you! ✨

So Today I’m trying out a new segment for the blog called “On the Real”  For this, I’m here to break down some thoughts and particular mind pondering that sometimes we overlook, especially when it comes style!  And maybe you guys can join in the convo with your own insight!  Please do.

HERE—-> If you didn’t want to read the intro, I’m here to ask one question today:

WHAT THE F*!$  HAPPENS TO ALL THE CLOTHES THAT FASHION BLOGGERS WEAR?

The other day as I browsed my feed of style star bloggers, it got me thinking.  I noticed a fundamental element in which my personal life can not relate to.  No one is an outfit repeater!! HOW is this possible? Are they not human? Are they style Goddesses that dissolve fabric after wearing it ONE TIME?

To be fair, I completely understand the reasoning behind this, being that a style blogger’s entire job is to showcase new looks, keep their followers engaged and even represent a brand they are working with. But let’s bring this down into reality, their closets must be EXPLODING.  Where does it all go?!?!

 

Okay, so these are just 2 image examples, since I am sure you can all scroll through your Instagram feeds and see the point I’m making, but what kind of augmented reality is this?? Who has an endless closet with a clothing pattern that regenerates everyday?

I don’t know about you all, but even at an attempt to not repeat for a week or so, I’m tempted to reach for the comfort of my same black t-shirts and jean stash.

Call me lazy if you will but to that I say:

If it isn’t broke why fix it, right?  Within our fashion fantasies of course we all dream of living the style lives of the elite influencers, but how realistic can this be?

For instance, if I like the way a dress looks, I’m definitely going to be rocking that dress on various occasions.  When it comes down to it, we define our style with our own point of view.  So even if you closet matches mine and looks like this:

Outfit repeating is normal.  Why should we hide it? Wear what you love, and what makes you feel like you!

If you have any gems of wisdom about the secret to style blogger’s, share a comment! If you just wanna chat, share a comment! And if you guys like this new type of post, lemme know and there will be more to come!

DIY Distressed Boyfriend Denim

Hey everyone!! Welcome back to Eat Your Glitter.  Things have been insane lately, but I am gaining some more free time and will be on a more frequent update to the blog schedule soon!  In the meantime, I NEED to share the latest DIY project!

So I found these old boys jeans hiding in the depths of what I call a closet, and I seized the opportunity for a crafty upgrade!  Similar to how I DIY-ed my black skinnies (see post here about it!)  I took the same method and hacked away at these til they came out JUST how a distressed boyfriend jean should!

They are durable for work, since I always am COVERED in acrylic paint, I don’t mind dirtying them up a bit, and they are the perfect weekend go-to casual look!

Let me know what you think!

STYLE SEARCH project NYC

“I’m quite girly.”

Hey Everyone!! I  know it’s bee a while since we’ve caught up.  So I’ve been working super hard on a project for my Design class while being back in school. Our assignment is to design a 20 page book and I’m SO SO excited about this project, I might just even make this a monthly thing! It’s really interesting getting so many diverse answers from the public on personal style.  I decided for my book that I wanted to explore what people wear and why they wear it.  I decided to venture into NYC and ask some people a few questions about their outfits! I asked each stranger the same 5 questions after approaching them.  

  1. What are you wearing and why are you wearing that today?
  2. What do you like best about your look?
  3. If you could change anything about your look, what would you change?
  4. What influences your style?
  5. Describe your personal style in a few words.

People seem to be quite happy about having their looks photographed by a strange girl wandering around, so I figured it would be fun to share some of the looks on here!  I illustrated each image myself depending on the answers provided by each person.  It took A LOT of time and effort and it’s still a work in progress, so if you like these images PLEASE link it back to the blog or www.eatyourglitter.com

That’s all for now, if you like the idea of making this a monthly post, comment and let me know!  The book is still a work in progress, so I’ll update when it is finally put together! Have a happy weekend full of fun!
