Why I started this blog

I often get asked- Why a fashion blog? What made you start it?

Firstly, it's not a fashion blog. It's a lifestyle blog. MY lifestyle blog. I write about my life, and show my style. 

I love writing. I've always maintained multiple diaries, journals, and I even used to write poetry when I was in high school. I have a love affair with words. {Ergo why reading is one of my obsessions.} I love expressing myself through the written word. {Which is why I lurve twitter! Click here if you wanna follow me on twitter.}

Second, I love fashion. I'm not a huge fan of the industry and how it works, but I love personal style. How someone can easily portray an image of themselves just by what they wear on a daily basis fascinates me. 

So this blog is me, documenting my life, my style, through words and pictures. I love putting outfits together but more than that I love writing about how my day has been or what I've been up to recently or my philosophy on life. Which is why The Silver Kick Diaries. One of my favourite things to do is to go through my blog and see the changes and transitions in my style, my life, and even my way of thinking. 

I started this blog to give ladies style inspiration as I was constantly asked where I bought that top/ dress/ shoes/ bag, and how did I think of putting that top with that skirt, those shoes with that outfit, etc. But gradually it has evolved into something that's very personal and very close to my heart. Which is why I believe in having the best quality of posts. I want to look back at my posts, my writing and my outfits and smile. So when some of you complain that you're not seeing more of my posts recently, I'd rather let you wait a few more days than just post some half-hearted rubbish. If you've been following me some time you know I simply don't do half-hearted. It's just not in my DNA. {You wouldn't believe the number of pictures I've deleted because I didn't think they were up to the mark, even though I spent an hour deciding on what to wear and another on taking the pics. I take over an hour just writing the few lines below the pictures because I write, edit, re-edit, re-re-edit, and when I'm truly happy with it, it gets published.}

Lastly, I've never claimed to be a style maven/ fashion expert. My style is based on my personality and what I feel like wearing, and my suggestions, views, opinions and recommendations are my own. Some of you agree with them, some don't, and I'm okay with that. As long as I'm doing what makes me happy and I'm able to make some of you smile, this blog serves its purpose.
