Between work and the holidays I got behind on my event blogging. So, this is a last call post for My Attic. Today is the last day to grab good stuff for only L$95.
The theme for this round of UBER is 50 shades. I never got past the 2nd chapter of the books, so I have no idea if there are any character references. I do have knowledge of the overall them. So I got Sal out of man prop hiatus and took a vary vanilla general 50 shades themed pic.
Over the past weeks a few things have happened that made me toy with the idea of taking a different direction in my usual style. I’ve been blogging fashion for almost 4 years. In the past 2 I’ve tried to gravitate toward a style that was more “acceptable” in the mainstream fashion community. As mesh fashion becomes more and more popular, I find that I’m giving up more of what I like and what is Lourdes in order to fit in. So, I’m taking a step away from all that and taking a detour. I’m going to experiment in a different style.
Don’t get me wrong I love mesh; hair, shoes, eyes, lashes and various accessories. When it comes to clothes, I’ll be far more discriminating. After all we wear the clothes, the clothes shouldn’t wear us.

A couple of weeks ago Alicia Chenaux did a blog post addressing the trend of wide hipped shapes (referred to herein as ponygirls) that are becoming popular on the feeds. Immediately there was an outcry that the “barbies” were attacking their style. The ponygirls stated they had a right to look different and that they didn’t want to look the same as all the barbies on the feeds. So now we have a divide that is growing larger and hostilities are rising.
Honestly, I am not a fan of the ponygirl look but I have learned to look past the shapes to what is worn and how its styled and accessorized. In that regard I think that both camps can benefit from each other. An item when worn by a different person or used in a different way can become something entirely new.
