It’s my baby’s birthday! Exactly one year ago I posted my first article on here. It was about Jason Wu’s fall 15 collection which I was blown away by. Maybe it was coincidence that this happened on Valentine’s day, maybe not. But the amusing thing about that is that I created something I put my heart and soul into, something I love! Even though Valentine’s day celebrates the love between two people, from now on it will always be the day I created something I am extremly proud of. Looking back to that day I had no idea what my main aim was, I simply wanted to have a place where I could tell someone about my thoughts regarding fashion. Now it turned into a platform where I share my street style shots I take at fashion weeks, personal style captures and reports about everything that goes through my mind. I’m working on improving myself every day, in photography as well as in my personal style. A friend once told me that she scrolled through my blog and the newer the posts were, the better they got. Well these are the feedbacks that make me genuinely happy. When you see that the hard work together with passion, are paying off.
Also before I brought ‘The Hidden Closets’ to life, I was at a certain point where I had no idea what I wanted to do or who I wanted to become. I think the whole year was rather turbulent and full of new outcomes that helped me a lot to get through this process (not that I’m fully done yet, because I personally think that it takes a life time). And I’m going to be completely honest with you this time: It was the best way to heal a broken heart. Unfortunately nobody has ever found a medicine against this kind of (horrendous) sorrow (: but the best thing you can do is to find something for yourself only that brings you joy.
So for this occasion I wanted to make this post as personal as possible which meant that it had to be a new look of mine. I recently fell in love with this high waist pencil skirt I paired with a cosy woolen knit. Even if the whole outfit is very simple and clean it doesn’t need some extra accessories, and if you still feel like wearing some here is an option with a foulard wrapped around the wrist. A common street style trend as seen on Leandra Medine (Man Repeller) for example.
Anyway I wanted to thank you for taking the time and reading my articles throughout the whole year (If you did so)!
Stay updated for some street style shots this month as it is fashion month again! I will be hitting the roads very very soon and I am super excited!
Love, Laura Jane
