Sometimes it’s hard to do a personal style blog. I mean, think about it for a moment. The way I do it, not only does it mean taking my own pictures, it means being a stylist, makeup artist, model, writer, and technical advisor.
Translated: time consuming. I sew many of my pieces, cull the thrift stores for special items to use, and have a “real” job. Add in family and life in general, and you get the picture.
Then Instagram entered my life, @drossintogold. I could cajole other people into taking my picture since it was quick, making it much easier to capture some of the daily outfits.
If that didn’t work, I could post pictures of things I wanted to document.
Or images of other things I’m obsessed with, like bracelets.
I also love decor. Of course the principles of Dross into Gold apply there as well, under the umbrella of D.I.G Decor. (If you’re on Instagram check out #digdecor .)
In an attempt to keep blogging more regularly, it makes sense to me to occasionally share the IG pictures, since not all of you have seen them, and it’s a treasure trove of Dross into Gold images. It’s been a busy week and I’m grateful for a way to blog efficiently.
Now if I could just learn how to type.
Details: Everything in these pics is pretty much thrifted (and upcycled) and gifted.
Please come join me at Patti’s Visible Monday. I’m happy to be going over there now.
