Typography Tuesday: Be You

Someone asked me, yesterday, how is it that I'm so comfortable in front of the camera, and so comfortable with posting photos of myself where anyone and everyone can see.

I told them because I'm comfortable with who I am.

Then they asked me if I feel like I have to compete with other fashion bloggers out there because some of them dress really fancy (all about the labels).

I told them no. We're all different. What you wear should make you feel attractive, comfortable, totally you. I don't let others push onto me what THEY think looks good. Again, I know who I am. I like simple, not fussy. Beauty to me is about being comfortable in your own skin.

I did have to admit to them that I do own some of those 'fancy' labels; I'm just not the person to overinduldge.

Who was the person who asked me these questions? My friend's 13 year old daughter. She's thinking about starting a fashion blog as well, but she's just a little shy right now. I hope she does start one, she's a beautiful girl & she has cool teen style :)
