Blossoming Flamenca Lori from Fleur de Flamenco has gracefully and generously nominated my Closet stories for The Blogger Recognition Award! I must say I am very grateful and incredibly surprised and also very happy to be nominated by someone that I consider part of my “Flamenco family” and whose journey on “becoming the dance” I truly identify with. Gracias Guapa!

Here are the rules:

  • Thank the blogger who nominated you and provide a link to their blog.
  • Write a post to show your award.
  • Give a brief story of how your blog started.
  • Give two pieces of advice to new bloggers.
  • Select 15 other bloggers you want to give this award to.
  • Comment on each blog and let them know you have nominated them and provide the link to the post you created.

Story of how I started:

I started in 2013 not really knowing what I wanted to do. Almost four years later I am not sure that I have a clearer picture of what I am writing. While I try to keep a focus on the “emotional life of my closet”, I do tend to let my attention wander and get excited about a whole lot of different things. As with everything, I just don’t seem to be able to settle for just one thing.

Advice to new bloggers:

I don’t really feel qualified to give advice. I am not even able to follow the sensible voice in my head. Have fun, I suppose, get inspired by others. Stay passioned.

I have watched too many movies for my own good, I have an absolute passion for clothes and an immense hunger for life and wanting to just take it all in. My closet (s) is a mirror of my current self, my former self (selves) my personal movies, my plans for extreme style makeovers and all the characters I did not get to play. I'm trying to tell the story of who I am, who I was and of who I will (most probably) not become one error at a time. These are the mistakes that make up my Closet of Errors. They are all intentional mistakes and part of of various attempts at writing my own story, at creating personas, at playing with possibilities. As most of our mistakes have consequences, so did my errors. I have no more space for all of them and while not having a minimalist, capsule wardrobe approach to life, I need to make space for a whole new set of errors. I hope you find some errors to identify and experiment with so I can share the story and intention behind them and see them transform into new narratives. The name of this blog (and of my shop) is a little twist on Shakespeare's "The Comedy of Errors" because this is also a story of mistaken identities
