I have another brilliant, and slightly more unusual but no less amazing, guest post for you from the wonderful Celynne of Spider Silk Stockings.
Hello everyone! I am Celynne from over at Spider Silk Stockings, here to amuse you while the wonderful Sian is out adventuring in the great wide world. This is my first guest post ever so please forgive me if it doesn’t live up to (my own ridiculous) expectations. I was really excited when she said she was looking for guest posters though, and I knew right away what I wanted to write about!
It’s pretty safe to assume that most of you reading this have a love for fashion and style. It’s something we all have in common, not to mention an interest that is very visually obvious. Happy bloggers globe-wide share their affection for florals, lace, leather, studs, maxis, minis, skinnies and what have you! But we can all agree that fashion and style are not our only interests or passions.
While we express ourselves and shed light on our unique personalities through the way we dress, there are a lot of things you just can’t know from looking at a person. As the saying goes, ‘Don’t judge a book by its cover’! Just because we dress a certain way, does not mean our personalities end with the hem of our skirts. Just because we like looking pretty does not mean we’re all vapid and empty-headed, which sadly is a common misconception about people who enjoy fashion, and put thought and effort into how they dress.
Our lovely Sian is a great example! We all know how wonderful she looks in a dress and I’m certain we’d all swoon over the same floral frocks, but she’s also studying Classics, not something everyone would expect. There are teachers, and caring mothers, published authors and journalists out there blogging about style! There are ladies who know martial arts and ladies who make hand-tooled leather jewelery and ladies who keep honey bees. Myself, I am a lady who raises tarantulas and has pet snakes.
We’re all amazingly unique, but our uniqueness goes much deeper than the things we choose to wear. Of course, those passions are likely to sneak into our wardrobe (like my penchant for spider broaches). But that’s just part of the fun of getting dressed: making your outfit yours. Let the inner you shine!
Do you have any hidden talents or passions that most people don’t know about? A skill or hobby that is out of the ordinary? Anything special about yourself that goes deeper than your clothes! I’d love to hear it!
