Personal Style : guest post by ModaMama :



I'm all about eye candy.  I love some pretty pictures, some cute clothes, and hopefully some style inspiration.  That's what I try to achieve on my site ModaMama. *Emphasis on the word 'try'*

I think it's important to enjoy fashion.  It's important to take in the hand the message you send out to the world.

Not because it's the thing that most matters in life, it's not.  I'll be the first to say that.  But because people do look at you and make snap judgements.  Sad but true.  So you can either work with it, or work against it.

Most of us work with it - we dress appropriately for work, weddings, etc. etc.  I think personal style and conscious dressing are the next step to that.  Thinking about how you present yourself on that given day and what you're telling the world.

I went to a two day blogger conference and I thought about what I would wear.  Most ladies went with the classic black pants and blazer.  Now there's nothing wrong with that.  It's classic for a reason.  But I knew I would be meeting people who represent brands and pr companies.  And I also knew that this wasn't a super high dressy event like a wedding. 

So I thought it was important to wear what represented me.

The first day I wore a feminine dress and a slouchy cardigan because that represents what you'll find on my site - feminine and a little boho.

The next day I wore my pleather leggings, nerd shirt, and tribal cardigan.  That's a great encapsulation of me as well.  I'm rather relaxed about my style, love the boho look, but am also prone to dressing in a slight rocker and nerdy way. 

It's not about dressing for others.  It's about you.  Who you are and what you want to say to the world on any given day.   So, the point I'm trying to say is that what we wear on our bodies says something about us.  I just want to have some control over the message.

I've been admiring Joanna for her style & spunk for a while now and I definitely look to her as a fashion inspiration. Her style is sooooo... her.  And it makes me want to make my style sooooo... me.

As much as I love blogging, with everything going on in or lives right now (see THIS post), I just do not have the time to invest in Lena B as much as I want to.  I enjoy this space so much, and I have so much respect for my readers & friends that it wouldn't feel right to completely ignore the blog right now... I will be posting as much as I can, but when I can't I have some awesome bloggers lined up to bring you some fabulous posts!  Please be nice to this rockin' ladies.  I appreciate them so much!

  1. what an interesting statement --- "conscious dressing". I haven't heard it put that way before but man am i ever going to remember those wisdom-filled words now. love the message here, what you wear certainly doesn't define who you are necessarily but the vibe behind what you've put together does. more like a feeling of who you are, translated through your clothing choices. nice one girls!

    Joanna, i sincerely like the way you roll!! your choices for the conference are outstanding and exude a well-defined character. cheers all around! ♥
