With Instagram (IG) being an instant photo-sharing social media platform, and with my constant need to regularly update it, it is quite apparent that Heels & Wedges has been pushed aside and left neglected. Scroll down and you’ll find that it has been exactly a month since my last post. The same old excuses apply, 1) unavailable photographers, 2) too busy with school and work, 3) sheer laziness.
Because of IG, the need to share my sartorial deets on the blog becomes a chore. Why go through the hassle of finding places to shoot, the hours of editing process, squeezing my brain juices for a write up, when you can simply post a photo on IG without a caption?
Then there’s also the rise of new bloggers, rising ‘Instagrammers’ (for lack of a better word), and suddenly this ‘industry’ feels way too clogged up and competitive. Trust me, when i was blogging years ago, I thoroughly enjoyed dressing up and posing for the camera. Now, it feels like every photo will be judged and ‘liked’. It’s one thing to stay alive and kicking, but to feel like it’s work and no longer doing it for fun, I thought it better to update as and when I want to, and not for anyone else. I’m not saying I’m against new bloggers, there’s nothing wrong with that, I’m just saying it’s tough to keep up. It is also part of the reason why I held a giveaway last month, to gratefully say thanks to readers who are still here patiently waiting. In the words of RHPC (Ryan Higa Production Crew), you guys ROCK!
In other news, tulle skirts are still as relevant as ever, and with my undying love for pink, we can all sense a uniform of sorts in the making. The skirt’s from an Indonesian brand I stumbled upon while on a work trip to Jakarta last month. Best purchase in a while yet. Can’t wait to recycle the skirt and try out different looks!
