“Do you remember your thought process for getting dressed, before blogging?” Veronika asked me earlier this week. Truth be told, I genuinely don’t. I don’t think I had much of a thought process beyond put-clothes-on-as-fast-as-possible-to-avoid-missing-the-bus-and-being-late-for-work. And when it came to shopping, I was even worse; I bought what I liked, most often based on impulse, without ever considering what I already had in my closet. I recognized that something was wrong with these strategies and started my blog, at least in part, to help narrow the focus of my personal style and hone in on what I really loved to wear. It wasn’t easy. In the early days of blogging, putting together outfits was a challenge that often saw me rifling through drawer after drawer, looking for something – anything – that would somehow pull together the look I was trying to achieve, which I struggled to define at the best of times. But it’s amazing how we grow and change. Lately, I’ve been finding it remarkably easy to get dressed – while my wardrobe is still far from perfect, in many ways I feel like I have everything I need to get through whatever the week throws my way with minimal sartorial stress. And it’s a wonderful place to be. For so long, I aspired to be one of those effortless women who could simply open her closet, throw on the first things she saw and look fabulous. What I’ve learned is that no one can do that without making a conscious effort to add the right pieces to their closet in the first place. I think it was when that realization finally came to me, when I understood that being effortlessly well-dressed wasn’t a gene I didn’t have but a skill that I could learn, if I dedicated myself to it, that everything started to come together. This Lefupeng dress from Dezzal, like so many pieces in my wardrobe now, is one of those perfect throw-on-and-go pieces that requires no more effort than taking it off the hanger but, with the right accessories, looks perfectly put together every time. My pre-blogging self owned very few pieces like this; she probably found them too simple, which is why she ultimately found putting outfits together to be so challenging, because everything in her closet was exciting and nothing fit together. In fashion and is life, sometimes all you need is to change your perspective.
