Style Funk, Begone & A Link-Up | Sheela Writes

Style Funk, Begone & A Link-Up

Get thee behind me. For thou art evil, Style Funk.   Ladies (and gentlemen), it is Friday.  Can we have an amen?  And perhaps some choirs of angels chorusing, “Alleluia!” most emphatically?  It’s been such a long week, wherein work has been more insane than usual, and home life completely off the cray chart.  One of those weeks that I’d ever so happily forget even existed, given the option.  Have you ever had one of those?  Or should I ask, have you had one of those lately? Anyway, I digress.  Today, we conclude our chat on being caught in a style rut, and how to dig ourselves out of that particular conundrum.  The original post discussed being uninspired (which happens to the best of us) whilst its follow-up dissected the various steps leading to style enlightenment (deep, I  know).

Faeries Wear Boots Too

Overcoming style paralysis. Getting rid of that mean ole funk.   Continuing on the topic of being uninspired (see original post here), today’s post addresses that first step towards salvation the light – knowing what it is that we love.  Remember this? “We need to accept that our opinions and tastes can, and will, change.  We need to put in the work to narrow down what we love, and realise it’s perfectly alright to have more than one thing that defines our style.  Lastly, and this one is a no brainer (albeit the hardest to pull off), we need to have confidence.  Only when we have confidence in the things we truly love, can we begin to move towards having a signature style.” Let me punctuate that further with this phrase. DO NOT FILL YOUR CLOSET WITH THINGS YOU LIKE, FILL IT WITH THINGS YOU LOVE Words from the wise indeed.

A Style Bootcamp

In the same ole, same ole? Batteries need a little recharging?   Last week, I talked about being in a creative rut.  You know, that moment when your mind is a naught but a black hole, completely devoid of thoughts, and you draw a blank in terms of what to write next?  Yes, that rut.  Today, I’m still on the same macro topic of being uninspired (seeing a pattern here) but this time, it focuses on style.  I suppose one could call it a style funk. OVERCOMING STYLE PARALYSIS In a manner of speaking. Everyone who blogs, or reads a blog post, shares a love and a passion for design, fashion, and clothes (in varying degrees of obsession, of course).  And a deep desire to make our visions for how we dress, how we look, how we present ourselves to the world, come to fruition.  But, for most of us, we are the ones holding ourselves back.  Confining ourselves within self-imposed cages that prevent us from venturing pass (invisible) boundaries, exploring, experimenting, trying new things.  …
