If you are not willing to learn, no one can help you. If you are determined to learn, no one can stop you. ~ Unknown author
March 7 of 2013 I published my very first post. I was so green in the beginning, but my goals then are still the same ones today; to learn, to improve and above all to have fun. The day those goals are no longer met is the day I will hang up my blogging hat.
In my 8 years as a resident of Second Life, I have seen fashion trends come, go, and then return full circle. Sadly, I have worn many of them. Sometimes I’ve smacked myself and said: “What were you thinking?” But you learn, you grow. No longer into following mainstream trends, I stay true to my personal taste searching the grid for styles that have a classic, understated elegance.
Since its inception, Classic Cougar Style has been an independent blog. Everything has been purchased by me (unless noted) for the sole purpose of my enjoyment, and sometimes I blog and share it with my readers. That’s what I love about being an independent blogger or what I like to call “going rogue.” It allows me to blog what and when I want. I don’t have to worry about how many likes or followers I have, though I am grateful for each and every one of you, and if I want to step away for days or weeks at a time, I can do that and not worry about losing designers/creators. Granted, this is not everyone’s cup of tea, but it works for me.
In my profile inside Second Life, there are a few quotes* I would like to share here that have served me well over the years…
Dress the way you want to be addressed.
People will stare. Make it worth their while.
If it doesn’t make you feel fabulous: don’t do it, don’t buy it, and don’t keep it.
Fashion is what you are offered by designers and style is what you choose.
Be faithful to your own taste, because nothing you really love is ever out of style
and the most important one…
Without saying a word your clothes tell a story of who you are…Say something interesting.
Be kind to one another. TWMA♥
