so lovely of you to drop by today to celebrate with me. (:
it is rather bizarre to think that this little style blog has been around for six whole years. when i started the capricious club, it was with no other intention other than to document my daily sartorial adventures and have a means by which i can connect with other fashion enthusiasts around the globe. so much has happened since then — not only with this space on the web, but also the fashion/personal style blogosphere as a whole — that i often feel overwhelmed by it all. the outpour of love, support and opportunity never ceases to amaze me; i simply cannot express my gratitude enough.
through it all i am happiest to note my continued love for everything vintage, thrift-shopping, style experimentation, and pretty photographs that help portray my every outfit story. these, i believe, uphold my vision as a blogger, as well as the aesthetics and philosophies that go along with it. being a personal style blogger in this competitive, too-many-blogs-to-read digital age comes with the inevitable challenge of staying true to who you are — an even bigger challenge to rise to the occasion and simply be comfortable in your own skin, your own quirks, your own style.
being in this field i have learned more lessons than i can count and, while hardly an expert on the subject, i can tell you this: when you blog, do so with love. let it flow through your words and your pictures and everything in between. (yes, people can tell.)
and to that i add: be thankful for everything you have. there is greatness in the littlest of things. hold on to moments that bring you happiness — big or small, lasting or fleeting. in the end you will find that they are all worthwhile.
dear friend, this video is for you.
with love and thanks,
