Sorry Blogosphere it’s been almost three years since my last blog post. Wow I can’t believe it has been that long. I suppose they say better late then never…I hope the wait will be worth it! I started this blog back in 2010 at a time where there were only the elite few bloggers in Ireland. At the time I took inspiration from bloggers across the pond in the UK such as Susie Bubble & Park & Cube. These days blogging has taken on a whole new perspective especially fashion blogging.
My ‘revival’ as I like to call it isn’t an attempt to compete with what’s out there now. Instead I’ve decided to be true to the original ethos behind Stylewhisperings. While like everyone else I love to drool over the latest #ootd or perfectly composed flatlays, I want Stylewhisperings to have a little extra. I’m hoping to resurge my love of fashion. I want to talk about what fashion is all about; the trends of the seasons, the people behind what we wear, the business of fashion, the politics behind it & why fashion is art. This is my true passion so expect some ramblings & a dip into those fashion related moments that inspire me from the photographers to designers to the models.
I understand that fashion isn’t a major turn-on for everyone & so I’ve decided this time round to branch out to some of my other passions in life. Literature holds a very special place in my heart. Growing up my house was filled with books & it was my Dad’s one true love next to music & old movies. He opened up this wondrous land of imagination to me, a place of marvel & escapism. I hope to share & capture the world of literature for others just as he did for me. I will fill you in on some of my latest reads. They may not always be high brow – lets face it due to my desire for a good old detective book the more Pulitzer prize winner types won’t always been on the list but hey reading is all about that escapism.
And finally I’m going to throw a bit of the ole journo topics into the mix. As some of you may know I do dabble in a bit of feature writing. I mainly write about fashion but every now & then I like to turn my hand to a feature piece. As a freelance journalist you spend a lifetime pitching ideas. Amongst the hundreds you send inevitably there will be a stockpile that doesn’t reach an editors imagination. For good reason of course however there can be times where as a journalist you feel the topic should be given a voice. Now that I have revived the blogger within me I intend to share some of those lost articles here & hopefully I wasn’t crazy at thinking that readers may be interested.
I hope you like the new approach to Stylewhisperings & I look forward to hearing your thoughts…
