Ahem ... A Birthday-Thank You

Blog Birthday Fashion Tales
Although, originally started as a travelling and styling catalogue, the FASHION TALES heart has always remained the same ... contributing in the support of independent artists, and sharing my voice on fashion. There are times when things may not always be on trending tune, but it's a guarantee over here that you'll always hear my personal melodic notes of fashion. 

When I dismantled the initial travelling blog, it was for necessary reasons, being that I had no clue of what blogging was, or any inkling of social media. I was extremely focused on other industry activities. However, a year later I began to walk into new territory and wanted to continue sharing my passions for design, vintage, and emerging talent. 

I am so happy that I stuck it out through times of mere humble beginnings, and even times of painfully staying up in the wee hours of the night learning (more about the blogging world.) Just as in daily life, it is through blogging where I've also met some amazing people, and still have loads of you to actually meet in the near future.  

Thank you friends for your ongoing support of the blog. I am truly grateful! You have encouraged me to show more of my style, talent, and ramblings on life in general. But, also through inspiring community allowing me to learn more about yourselves.

A YEAR OF STYLE and INSPIRATION: Click images for the memory!


About a year or so ago I would have never posted pictures of my outfits. I was confident in my work life, helping others style their wardrobe, designing, and being in the background of the fashion world. Yet, for some reason I did not have a hankering to show my everyday wardrobe; perhaps that's because at that time I only viewed fashion blogs that had perfectly snapped this, and premium designer that ensembles posted


Sure, I was into labels as well (and I still am), however I also had an undeniable enchantment for vintage, antique home items, and unusual silhouettes, in addition to handmade creations.

It took me a few visits to new fashion blogs and several clicks from adverts to catch my eye. Afterward, I started following others who shared my love of unique style, original content, and vintage. 

It was bloggers like YOU who showcased fashion images that spoke to me ... ones that were not found in the pages of a high-fashion glossy. Some of your independent styles were so inspirational that I had to say to myself, "Hey, I'd wear that too!" And, I knew it was time to show the person behind the blog, despite the fear that no one would care! Of course, I did not have to, but I wanted to! There was an eagerness that came over me, and I wanted to reveal myself in a way that others could see my everyday wears, read my thoughts, and possibly even relate to! 

I say all of this to you to come celebrate with me because baby ... it's my blog's birthday! 
Well, I never actually did a birthday post last year so, HAPPY first-2nd BIRTHDAY FASHION TALES! 

Thank you dear readers, inspiring bloggers, and visitors of the night (consistent stylish lurkers)! You are very much appreciated!

  11. Happy 2nd b-day to your blog. A lot of us have similar story of starting a blog without knowing what blogging is even all about and starting a journey that always seems to become much more than expected.

I love personal style blogs, not the ones featuring designer clothes and perfect photos but real outfits worn by real women- yours look wonderful. I'll definitely be back for more :)
