Nothing's gonna change my world

I've had these images compiled into a draft and lying here for over month. With a severe case of writer's block, I couldn't find the right words to accompany this set of images. It sounds strange. "What's there to write about? Just look pretty in images and tell us where your jacket is from" says the imaginary voice in my head. But somehow, it just seems not enough. Fashion blogging has taken a toll and shifted drastically over the last two years. I've seen previously helpful bloggers go from "there's a secret sale every Saturday" to "this is the only makeup brand you need to use" when a week later they promote the rival brand. It's true what they say, money talks. This wasn't supposed to be another rant. But it really baffles me. What to people want to read about? Do you only care about which brands spend more money on marketing so that everyone promotes them or do you want real honest opinions? I've always been opinionated and very vocal about my choices. The things I wear are highly influenced by my state of mind or in simpler words, what I'm currently listening to. And that's why most of my posts are named after song titles or recurring lyrics that speak to me. And this is why I'll always continue to disclose promoted and sponsored content, as I have in the past with complete transparency. I have to say, I truly miss the good old days where I would spend hours researching and trying out a trend for myself and then presenting it my my blog instead of having a PR agency have it delivered into my inbox on an almost daily basis. And I can tell a lot of my peers miss the same.
