Blogging Motivation x Retrogue/Pauls's Boutique


In this summer, tropical palm trees, pineapples, such these summery prints seem to be really on trend among us due to the popularity of Instagram pictures I have come across these days. From online shopping websites to famous retail stores in several malls, they mostly provide the tropical vibe selections to fulfill their favourite shoppers in the season like this. To be honest, I had obsessed with those delightful prints for a while until I realized that at the end of the day, my Instagram photo's just going to look like theirs. Actually, the purpose of The Equinox Fashion is not only for (re)introduce or collaborate with street fashion brands/designers or online shopping destinations but small and local boutiques are what this blog specially aims to present as well because their clothes are even matching with my street style signature. Like I mentioned in this post that I'm not intending to be here in order to show how many brands I have worked with or famous people I have hung out with, but only my passion to street fashion. 

I love wandering around town, taking photos and appreciating the "now" moment. Therefore, my character is quite easy-going. However, I can be a really picky yet independent working woman. Truth is, I had explored in the fashion industry for a while til I knew what my blog's finally going to turn out. I'm only 5'2'' (are you surprised!?) with little physical attractiveness and don't have such confident to pull off a pink lipstick like everybody else. That is why I choose to bring out my inner self and fuse with The Equinox Fashion in order to be my "signature" instead. 

Talking about the brands' collaborations, I honestly grateful to have an opportunity to work with them. Believe it or not, I have attached their name cards or even tiny postcards written by designers/boutique owners in my personal working scrapbook (Yes, I use scrapbook as a schedule and marketing planning lol) And from my experience, I would rather suggest you guys that "please choose to work with brands only if they are good to go with your style" Because personally I feel more confident with the outfit styling, as well as, the quality of the content. I know that there are wide variety of online sources to contact or work with brands, however, there's no need to rush. Acceptance and rejection are normal since there's gonna be brands who appreciate and love your style while some might say no because you don't have a certain amount of followers they have expected. Don't discourage yourself by comparing your followers to others' and don't give up! I have a strong belief "If you keep doing it no matter how long it takes, there's gotta be the way to make it happen" Have you ever heard of Laws of Attraction? or the quote said "When one door closes, another seems to open"? This is pretty much work for me. 

Just ignore those negative believers, and focus on your heart. A girl who resigned from secure full-time job and started everything from the beginning like me can do it, so why can't you?
