The State of Blogging


Just like technology is always evolving, so has been the state of fashion blogging. Now-a-days, you must stay current with technology if you are doing anything in the creative arts.

One of the things I have noticed is how social media is evolving to more of creating a story of your life or your product to build a brand. It’s not just pictures anymore. People desire more from you (especially if you are popular) to keep their attention. They want to learn more about you, your product, your home life, your everything. Social media presence is super important; however, the key is to be personable without getting too personal.

I found the Unfold App recently to create this set of pictures (to create a mini picture book story) and currently testing out video editor apps for my instagram to edit on my phone. I am looking for an app that is fairly user friendly because sometimes easy to use video editor apps are few and far between. One must go through a full tutorial just to learn some of the simplest features. O_0
Wish me luck on my quest.

Boho Maxi X Blazer


I still sing the “Rebecca Black” song in my head on Fridays and even extend the word “Fryyyyyyyyy-day, Frrryyyyyyy-day” in my mind. Ha!!!
Anyway, “Happy Friday“.

“Roll With It”


A fashion blogger’s dream is when they see an area of town that has a plethora of backdrop locations. For my city, it’s a little area called Broad Ripple Village.
I believe I am going to have to take my camera to illustrate the depth of variety from cute and quaint vintage homes to super modern and trendy apartments, unique eat restaurants and cool walkways.
They even have buildings where local artist can display their talents.
These photos were taken in that area. The scenery behind me is an office that appears to be “For Sale”. It was the perfect setting because no one was around and I felt extremely comfortable…………….Just me, my tripod and my iPhone.

T-shirt – Target
Extra Large pants – Rainbow
Shoes – I can’t remember.

Rockstar Chic

“Create your own visual style…….let it be unique for yourself yet identifiable to others.”

I have been fashion blogging all these years yet I was “today years old” when I realized that as a fashion blogger your style must be consistent. What I mean is you can’t be all over the place when creating your looks………..you can’t be vintage one day, rockstar the next and preppy the day after that.
You must create a niche for yourself to make yourself marketable. Although I am a free spirit, I am beginning to see what works and what may not be beneficial if you are trying to build your brand.
I guess you can say I am learning the rules or the “tricks of the trade” day by day.

Layered Looks – Denim Skirt X Velvet Blazer


The absolute best thing about the “Fall Time” other than sipping on hot chocolate and pumpkin spice coffee and seeing the trees change into really pretty colors is being able to layer your clothing. Honestly, you can make a simple outfit go from “Blah” to “Voila” simply by adding a jacket and a comfy scarf (additional layers are optional).
For this look, I layered 2 skirts, a t-shirt, and my velvet blazer.
A true sign of old age is when you totally forget where you purchased any of the apparel. 0_O  Just lift my mind up in your prayers, won’t you?

30 Days………OOTD’s

Ah 1,2, ah 1,2……….Ah, 1, 2, ah 1,2………….getting my thoughts together like a rapper getting ready to battle rap. 🙂
I must admit, this year’s “30 days of Fashion” is a little bit more successful than the previous years. Oh, and I am a little excited because this weekend, I plan to create my own lookbook of styles that I have put together in my head.
In my mind, I have a full production going on with backdrops, complete outfit ensembles, the whole nine yards. I just hope it comes out as cool as the images I have in my head. Stay tuned.
“If you can imagine it, you can create it…………..”.

Denim Upcycled Dress


One of my bucket list items is to attend an event at NYFW. I mean, if you are a fashion blogger, that’s the ultimate dream, right?…….. Besides the ability to do blogging full-time.
In the next few days, I plan to create “What I would wear to fashion week” #OOTD. Now this denim dress is not one of the looks but it is one of my favorite dresses in my closet for several reasons. It’s one of a kind and totally my personal style.
The backstory on this dress is that it used to be a jumpsuit that I bought at a thrift store. I saw it and thought “Hmmm, I am going to ask an associate of mines (who upcycles a lot of my pants for me) to work her magic” and “Poof!!!”, the birth of my denim maxi dress.

Thirty Days Of Fashion


Every year, I “try” the “Thirty Days of Fashion” challenge. I emphasize “try” because I would do the challenge and fail because I never really had a plan.
I am learning fashion blogging is more than just taking photos and creating outfit of the days, you actually have to plan your posts. #whoknew? Seriously, that may sound logical and you may be thinking “Well, Duh Michal!!!” but I am such a “free-spirit” that I never really took the time to plan out my hobby, my passion.

This year, I decided to take a totally different approach and provide a guide for myself of what outfits I would post each day (and now that I know a little bit about how to take my own photos), this “Thirty Days of Fashion” seems a little bit more promising.
Anyway, if you follow me on Instagram (@thebohemiancosmo), you can see some of my recent posts. I will be posting some of my favorites on this blog site shortly.

Love, Sun & Peace


Here lately I have been a little bit more motivated in taking my own photos for my blog. I guess it’s like a challenge that I feel I must overcome.
Each time I go to a site to take photos, I think to myself “Will this post be inspirational to someone?” and I pray to God for help. Him & I, we are like a team. 🙂

The Lady In Red


The “E True Personal Blog Story!” behind #OOTD posts are they sometimes have to happen quick. Sometimes, you are about to leave with kids in the car and you’re all like “Hurry up and take this picture so I can post it”. #noliestold

The reason I wanted to post this jumpsuit is that I have been waiting for a few months for this Free People Color My World jumpsuit to go on sale. I saw it originally in the Free People store but when I checked online and it was nearly 50% off at Macy’s, well, I just had to have it. I consider these types of situations as blessings. #thankful
