Well, it’s official – I am no longer The Fashion Outcast. I had that domain name for nearly two and a half full years and it was apart of me as everything I did in junior high still is (unfortunately).
I actually remember the moment when I first thought of that name. I was staring at my computer, much like I am now, but back then I had no direction or real reason for wanting to start a fashion blog except for that I wanted to be one of those bloggers that get invited to the big kids parties. But the problem was, I had no idea what to post or what to do with a fashion blog. A fashion blog all to myself seemed so… daunting. And scary. I was a thirteen-year-old girl who was doing something without her mom helping her for once. I didn’t know how much I should share about my life, I didn’t think anyone would care really. I also thought, “No one’s going to take me seriously because I’m thirteen.” And it’s taken me two and a half years to just say, “Screw it, I’m gonna do what I want whether people take me seriously or not.”
Also in the past few years it seems like I’ve went from no post ideas to lots of post ideas and no time to all the time in the world and I’m semi-starting over. I’m going to revamp this blog. It will go somewhere. That is my New Year’s Resolution.
I guess you could say that I’ve grown up a bit from the girl I was in junior high to the girl who’s been in high school for two and a half years. I know I have much more to learn, but I’m extremely proud of the progress I’ve made and the fact that my prediction came true. Last year on Jan 2, I said that 2013 was going to be my year. And it was sure one helluva year. 2013 is one year that I will never forget and in the days leading up to 2014, I’m going to look back on all that I have and haven’t done and it’s time to make my own “2013 in Review”.
