Truth be told, this post has nothing to do with bagels or eating food of any kind. The title was inspired by my favorite movie: “The Devil Wears Prada.”
Needless to say, the movie has Anne Hathaway, Meryl Streep, and Stanley Tucci in it so obviously you need to go watch it right now if you haven’t already seen it. Actually, let’s be honest. If you already have seen it, you need to watch it again. Right now. Stop reading and go watch it.
…now that you’ve returned, I’ll continue this post so I can reveal what I really wanted to say to you.
I have a predicament, a puzzlement, a possibility of sorts that I have been entertaining for quite awhile.
I have been thinking of…drumroll, please —
— starting a fashion blog.
It’s different than what I’m doing here obviously, since this blog is mostly comprised of my own writing and the creations of others. I have a very defined sense of style and I would enjoy documenting it as it changes and morphs to my lifestyle. However, this would result in my having to take pictures of myself. While this doesn’t pose too large of a problem, it’s not a hobby I particularly enjoy since I still haven’t mastered the art of taking selfies (although my sister could help me out with that) and I don’t have any presence on Instagram (…it seems that I have a lot to learn from my sister in this department also) and I would taking pictures on my phone since I don’t have an actual camera.
That being said, I would still enjoy the blog. I probably wouldn’t have a huge start-up following, if at all. But let’s be honest, I didn’t have any of you lovely readers when I started this blog either. So I know it can be done.
I’ve entertained the idea for awhile now but I’m just now vocalizing it on here to see if I get any feedback or comments. I’m not sure that I want to start the blog while in college because I don’t have a ton of time to find locations to take pictures and even if I did, my campus is small enough that it would be awkward to see people I know while struggling to photograph myself. Obviously I would need a few trial runs.
So, to recap: I’m thinking about starting a fashion blog. The timeline appears to be after graduation, although there is a possibility of starting in the summer so I can experiment on my own and then transition into school. I would also need a camera, an Instagram presence, and practice photographing myself…so, it would take a lot of effort. It would be okay to take pictures on a I-phone for now, but if I wish to continue the blog, then a camera would be necessary.
This blog is where I dangle my thoughts and allow you to peer through them aimlessly and pick through them, scarf them down and digest them, to regurgitate them as thoughts of your own or just to process — for entertainment or whatever other purpose suits your fancy.
Feast yourself then. But don’t eat any onion bagels.
