At the beginning of this month Style Fixation turned one year old, and what a year it has been! I started this blog as a creative outlet for myself, but it has grown to be much more than that. I’ve learned lot about my writing style, my work ethic, what inspires me, what stalls me, and so so so much more. Once I got over my fears (namely the fact I hate being photographed – a necessary evil of blogging) I went for it and launched. It wasn’t an easy thing to do, and I did it completely on my own. I spent hours upon hours researching and building my site through trial and error; it was simultaneously the most frustrating and rewarding project I’ve ever worked on.
Flash ahead a year: I got an alert telling me Style Fixation turned one, and I wanted to celebrate all the hard work, time, and energy I have poured into this passion project! So I splurged on the Gucci Marmont bag that I had been eyeing up for months. Isn’t it amazing!? It is such a beautiful piece that I will have in my wardrobe for years to come.
I believe it’s important to celebrate milestones in life! New jobs, promotions, personal successes – it keeps me motivated. For me, I love bags and have marked a few big moments by purchasing them. The best part for me is that every time I use one of my bags I am reminded of these milestones and it makes them that much more special!
And really, if you take good care of your pieces your cost-per-wear is basically nothing. So it’s a no-brainer.
Let me know what you think! Do you treat yourself to mark milestones?
