I feel this blog has always been my sidekick. I never really cared too much about it as YouTube has always been more engaging and interactive. I always promise myself to change this blog and actually do something meaningful on this platform. If you haven’t realised already I started with the design of the blog. I loved the previous one as it took me ages to find and redo to fit my style. Looking back at 2013 I feel I tried too hard to be original and different from other blogs, and the easiest way to do it was by a slightly different theme. But with time I realised that no one really cares and I’d rather have something easier to read and access. I literally got no comments because of the design I had, photos got screwed up as well as my text. I’m extremely happy with the change as it feels more ‘me’ and it’s easier to understand what I’m trying to explain with my style.

But let me continue talking about the changes that are about to happen here.

I still can’t decide but I feel like writing all these posts in two languages is pointless. I tried to persuade myself that this blog can have two audiences but in reality it’s a waste of time and it simply demotivates me. Starting with this post I’ll stop writing in Polish. Usually I write the original post in English and then translate it into Polish. At times it’s a struggle and I end up not uploading anything because it’s so time consuming. Hopefully this will mean more posts and a higher engagement from me on this blog.

However, I hope that the biggest change will be in the content itself. I realised I spend so much time writing extremely academic essays on fashion and culture but never use it here too share my opinions. I feel I have a lot of good points so hopefully you’ll see a bit of essay inspired posts here (fingers crossed).

This post is the first in my vintage series. I always talk about my love for vintage, and my wardrobe is overfilled with such gems, but my outfits on the blog never include these pieces. You guys always criticize me for that, simply because I talk and never show. I believe the only reason for this situation is that I wear my vintage pieces daily, more as basics than a statement. They aren’t really that exciting to show in posts so I never included them.

So as often as I can I’ll post outfits where most of the pieces will be vintage. I say most and not all simply because I yet didn’t grow into buying vintage shoes, and I probably never will (unless we’re talking about hot pink 70s boots on a 5-inch platform). Same goes for bags, I never actually buy any bags since I carry my cotton shopping totes every day. And I’m not starting this conversation in relation to vintage tights, lingerie etc., since I still have some respect for my personal hygiene.

My main goal with these type of posts is to prove that it’s actually quite easy to style a full vintage outfit. Usually people say they can use one vintage piece in their outfit or otherwise it will just look ridiculous. But guys please, vintage or second hand doesn’t always mean old. I’m not saying I wear second hand stuff 24/7, I often buy new items, but it’s a small symbolical change you can make to be more conscious.

    W sumie to cieszę się, że przestajesz pisać posty po polsku. I tobie zaoszczędzi to czasu, a grupie osób (na przykład mi) pozwoli podszlifować swój angielski, ale mniesza o to.
    Wszystkie zmiany są na plus.
    Wyglądasz tu przepięknie!!

    Pasuje Ci ten kolor włosów! Ślicznie!

    Według mnie wszystkie zmiany są jak najbardziej na plus, poprzedni design strony był świetny, ale na przykład w kwestii komentowania dość skomplikowany.
    Co do ubrań vintage całkowicie sie zgadzam , a rzeczy z drugiej ręki to dosłownie 80 procent mojej szafy.
    Cudowne zdjęcia!

    Świetny pomysł z takimi postami, a to, że piszesz tylko po angielsku to żaden problem, jeśli ktoś chce czytać twoje posty, to i tak będzie to robił <3

    Masz rację czasami mały szczegół zmienia stylizację, a to że piszesz po angielsku to żaden problem. Buziaki i powodzenia :*
