Spring In The 70's // Self Portrayal
Today's weather was exceptionally gorgeous. I'm so glad I was able to utilize this beautiful day and get some photo shoots done! I absolutely loved shooting this vintage 70's dress! If you read my last big reveal post, I talked about beginning my own Poshmark Shop. As well as Jade's Poshmark Shop (Ornamentalstone) and how I look up to her very much. I purchased this dress from Jade's shop (my first purchase on Poshmark ever) and I love it!
A big thank you goes out to this red headed cutie! She has been photographing me until I can find a more permanent helper. I'm so blessed to have her help! Thanks, Taylor!
I thought along with this newest post I would share a subject that has been heavy on my heart. The subject of self portrayal has been a reoccurring thought lately. Every single person thinks about this from time to time. Pondering questions like: "Do I seem easily approachable?" "Do I hold intriguing conversations when meeting someone new?" "What drives someone to REALLY want to know me?" I am starting to put myself out there more in terms of networking (for my business) and relationships. This portrayal subject I'm speaking of isn't just in context of if I'm admired or not. This subject I'm speaking of is meant on a more deeper level. For example, I often wonder if people recognize the largeness of my heart within the first time of meeting me. Or that I love to have serious conversations and value hearing about what people think, whether it's something they noticed while walking down the street or realizing something life changing. Acknowledged or not, just listening to views that others have, or things they realized that day helps us gain wisdom we are unaware of until we need to put it to use. Thinking of situations I've been in, as people, we seem to only compliment each other's portrayed assets when we are in need of hearing it. This is something I want to change in my life. To not only bring light to qualities of others when someone needs it most, but especially in daily interaction when it is able to happen naturally. For example, letting someone know how much you admire their communicative, encouraging, outspoken nature within a conversation could make someone's day. I can't help but think of the future, hoping I settle down with someone outspoken of their mind, who realizes deepness is just as important as what's on the outside. And who loves my portrayed mind & soul just as much as the simple things I present daily, like my sense of style.
Don't forget to have yourself a good laugh today, you can see here I sure did. ;)
Thanks for reading,
