Why You Should Start a Fashion Blog || Fashion Blogging

Hello Hello,

“Should I start a fashion blog?” If you are asking this question you probably already know the answer.

If you want to start a fashion blog, I say go for it! You have nothing to lose. And, if you figure out that you don’t like blogging about fashion, you can at least say you tried and didn’t like. (Otherwise, you’ll probably spend the rest of your life wondering how your life would be different if you did start that fashion blog).

Starting a fashion blog is not difficult. There are a ton of tutorials out there to help you start your blog, especially on the technical side. But I’m not here to talk about how you can start a fashion blog. I’m here to talk about why you should start a fashion blog.

If you already have a fashion blog, that’s awesome! (Leave it in the comments, I would love to visit!). I hope you will gain some inspiration from this post, even as a blogger yourself.

If you are still undecided, this post will help guide you in going through with starting your fashion blog.

(And if you are not interested in starting a fashion blog at all, this post can still be applied to any kind of blog or website!)

You should start a fashion blog because you are interested in fashion. Now, fashion is a really broad area or topic. You should read my post on How to find your fashion blog niche to get a better idea of what I mean. But in short, fashion varies from personal style, to fashion designing, to fashion brands, to fashion history, to street style, to global fashion, to photography, to sustainable fashion, and the list goes on. (Get your 55 fashion blog niches guide here). So in short, you should start a fashion blog because you are already interested in some element of fashion.

You should start a fashion blog because you want to share your ideas, knowledge, and/or style. Now, you don’t have to post your blog publicly. You don’t even have to promote your blog if you want to keep it within a small group of people. But regardless of how large you want your audience, you should start a fashion blog because you have something you want to share with others.

You should start a fashion blog because you care about a cause and/or you want to bring awareness to specific topic. This is slightly different from the second point because this cause doesn’t have to directly correlate with fashion, while the point above does. What I mean is you can use your fashion blog to directly bring awareness to a cause or a movement. For example, there is a rise in sustainable fashion blogs because these individuals care about the environment, and they want to bring awareness to the importance of caring about the earth. You can use your fashion blog as an outlet to talk about politics, feminism, human trafficking, education, career, motherhood, body positivity, and the list goes on.

You should start a fashion blog because YOU WANT TO! If you are worried about the time commitment, what other people will think, how to manage or how to start, don’t worry! Just start and learn as you go. I’ve already mentioned this but I’ll say it here again: You have nothing to lose. And, if you figure out that you don’t like blogging about fashion, you can at least say you tried and didn’t like. (Otherwise, you’ll probably spend the rest of your life wondering how your life would be different if you did start that fashion blog).

And those, my friends, are a few reasons why I believe you should start a fashion blog. Yes, “fashion” is a saturated niche but even within this saturated niche are unique niches. Start because you want to, start because you can, just start!

If you need more ideas, definitely check out the free 55 fashion blog niches guide.

I hope you found this post helpful. May it open more doors for you as you evaluate or negotiate with yourself on whether you should start a fashion blog or not. If you don’t intend on starting a fashion blog, these reasons or ideas are applicable towards other topics as well.

I know that by reading other people’s inspirations and stories definitely inspire and motivate me.

Thank you for reading. Let me know if you have other reasons to share or if you have a blog, leave it in the comments! And if you haven’t already, make sure you are subscribed to Looks by MC for exclusive content!

As always, I wish you the best.

Bell Sleeve Dress || Slowing down time

Hello Hello

Have you ever gotten lost scrolling through facebook, or instagram, or watching an entire season of a TV show? I know I have. The other day I found myself scrolling through Instagram, and when I finally looked at the time, I realized an hour had already passed. (Now, I’m not saying that having down time and catching up on social or shows is bad. I do it all the time). However, I did find myself asking how I can use my time more wisely.

I’ve been listening and watching a lot of motivational/inspirational speakers. Now wish I knew what I know now at the age of 20 or 18. It’s interesting how when I was younger, I felt like I had all the time in the world, I felt like I couldn’t wait to get older to do things. Now that I’m older, I feel like I have to hustle. I feel like I don’t have enough time in a day. I’m wishing I can slow down time. Do you guys feel this way too? Let me know in the comments!

For me, the challenge is trying to find the balance between soaking in a moment and hustling through projects.

Aside from wishing I can slow down time, I love this bell sleeve dress from the Who What Wear Collection for Target. READ MORE

Hopping into Warmer Weather || Victoria Beckham Pink Dress

Hello Hello,

Can you believe we are half way through May already? I feel like April literally just ended yesterday. Though May is speeding by, I am excited for the warmer weather ahead.

To start this mid-month off, I am wearing this pink dress from the Victoria Beckham X Target collection. Have you seen the Victoria Beckham for Target collection yet? Her collection is now on sale at Target, so definitely check it out before the pieces are sold out. (I do think the collection runs big. I wear an XS in the normal Target brand (Merona & Mossimo). So if you can try it on before purchasing, I would recommend that).

What drew me to this pink dress was the bunny on the collar. I think that is a super cute and unique detail. It helps to set this shift dress apart. (This dress also comes in black. Both pink and black colors are also available in Girl sizes).READ MORE

Not May the fourth | Hmong-Inspired Skirt

Hello Hello

I can’t believe May is here and we’re near half-way through 2017 already! That only means the hustling will have to move faster. (Also, I named this post not May the fourth because it’s no longer May the fourth. This post has nothing to do with Star Wars).

I’ve been the midst of starting a few projects, and I want to share one of them with you today. I am starting a fashion blogging series here on Looks by MC. I’ve been asked a lot of questions regarding fashion blogging and blogging in general. Which led me to start this new series so I can also share some personal tips with you. My ultimate goal is to inspire others.
