I have to keep telling myself this all the time. When it comes to fashion and putting clothes together, I am always on the safe side. I never really step outside the box because I always have that fear that I will look crazy and/or become a fashion victim. More and more as I become emerged into fashion, I am slowly becoming more comfortable with the fact that I will have to take some risks. I am not going to go out and get all Lady Gaga on you, but I will start by buying a few items, here and there, that I would normally bypass.
I know this may sound funny, but polyvore.com has helped me out a lot when it comes to taking risks. When I first started playing with polyvore.com, I realized that my collages were boring. The pictures would be neatly organized, and the outfits and accessories would be lined up and spaced out. Once I took my first risk, I started to become more pleased with the outfits and collages that I made. When it comes to fashion, take risks and have fun.
How do you feel about taking risks when it comes to fashion? Have you ever taken a fashion risk that was successful? Have you ever taken a fashion risk that was an #epicfail?
