contemplating on a few things..


so i recently signed up for paypal, which can be quite destructive to my bank account since doing that is giving me the option to shop in etsy and ebay now.. uh-oh! but the reason i did that is im starting to think of opening a 'shop' with a few items from my closet that are either slightly worn or totally have never been used. having the paypal invoice option is a great way to accept payments from possible buyers.

outfit: tna striped sweater, aa woven skirt, aldo wedges

don't get me wrong. im not saying that i'd totally live off whatever i get from the shop. i really just want to make space in my closet. that's the primary reason so i'd probably charge a small amount plus shipping fees. but im still thinking about it.. i need a couple of things to make it happen such as the time to set up the shop page and a decent camera to take photos of my items.

i entered these shoes in chictopia's payless contest!
vote if you like!


another thing i've been contemplating is getting a facebook account. yes, my dear readers, you won't find me there and to be quite frank, i like it that way. the only thing is, if i really want to increase exposure for the blog and the planned 'shop', then i'd have to consider getting into facebook, right? hmm.. i don't know.. what i do know is if you're one of my friends here in winnipeg or in the philippines, im sure you have been trying to convince me to sign up for the longest time. hahahaha!

First and foremost, I love that hat and the outfit that comes with it.

Secondly, like everyone else... I've kind of kept my blog tucked away for me. The sister tried teasing me about it the other day, but I don't let it get to me. We don't do this as some sort of narcissistic fetish where we just want to look at pictures of ourselves all day. It's more of an outlet to impact more lives and make friends with people you never would've encountered other ways.

The entire point of fashion blogging is to inspire others. That's how it started with me... all I ever did was read fashion blogs, and it helped me see the wardrobe I have in an entirely new way. And most of us hope to one day have the same effect on other readers.

Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, and there won't really be anything you can do to stop the criticisms. But what's important is that we, your readers, have a profound understanding of what it is you're doing, and have an appreciation for your ART.

Allow me to step off my soap box. Carefully, of course.

very well said.. i really can't add anything more to that! out of all the wonderful comments i received regarding my post yesterday, i have to say that this was my favorite. thanks to everyone for sharing your opinions on the matter. i really appreciated it.

  2. I agree with everything your commenter said. And as what I've said on another blog, blogging is also a nice avenue to share the wonders of the world through different eyes. I personally love looking at different blogs because I am drawn to each individual's story and the photos they post. And when I write each entry my goal always is to hopefully inspire others, help readers in whatever way I can in terms of shopping, travels and general things about life, make them aware about some things, and make them love thrifting!=)

  14. Get facebook! I highly recommend it. True, sometimes it drives me insane but at the same time you get to keep up to date with everything with a couple clicks.

    Yay for opening a shop. I want to open one too, but it's the whole parting with clothes that I may one day want thing that is bugging me.

    lovely out. Those shoes are fantastic.

    PS. Don't forget to enter the Giveaway on my blog!

  29. I say a blog shop is a great way to make some extra cash while giving your "barely used" items a new loving home :) I was thinking about opening a shop too, but most of my "unused" stuff weren't that great and I felt bad making money out of them. So, I donated them!:)

    Did you manage to get anything from the Aritzia sale? I got 2 bralettes and that's it. Hahaha.. their tops and bottoms are still way too expensive :( Boooo...

    Btw, I already replied to your email about the collaboration ;) I'm brainstorming an outfit as we speak!

  31. I just posted an album on my facebook and I've almost made $500! My closet is looking pretty empty and I basically sell 5 things to make enough to pay for 1 new thing but if I've never worn it or never plan to wear it again then it's so worth it!
