I have to admit, I don't post here as often as I could because I do feel uncomfortable sharing things I want or things I have bought--I often stop myself, forget those posts in the draft folder, and wait until I have something more substantial or less potentially commercial to share. I have difficulty with the consumerist fashion/living blogging cycle, and while I do enjoy having a look at what others consume, wear, and purchase, I'm unsure about how to deal with my responsibility concerning this cycle on this blog. I feel my blog should reflect my ideals, and that I should do my best to balance substance and inspiring imagery. Still, I sometimes consider trying out doing outfit posts, and then other days I feel like the only ethical thing to do is to write about music, films, books, and articles.
In this case, I decided to share with you those items I am coveting not only because I find them beautiful, but more particularly because I feel comfortable promoting the people behind them.
I thought I would share how I feel about the subject with you to make things clear between us, but also because I think you all have interesting opinions on the subject of the balance between inspiring imagery and consumerism when blogging.
Take care, and please feel free to let me know what you think.
