Yellow top blue skirt silver accessories outfit details: yellow long sleeved polyester top with blue and yellow print no-sew wrap skirt, blue #justfab pumps, and silver bangles fashioned into hoop earrings and hoops necklace. (no-sew wrap skirt means I fashioned a wrap skirt out of a piece of fabric. So my skirt isn’t really a skirt. It’s a piece of cloth that I wrapped around me to make a skirt)

With everything that’s going on in the world it’s difficult to find inspiration for up-keeping a fashion blog these days; but on Friday last week I managed to find a few hours to do a little photo shoot for the purpose of writing a ‘Style Practice’ blog entry.

My closet remains very  limited so usually when I have impulses to do sessions for style practice I have to squelch them on account of having nothing to practice with. But I remembered that I had tried this very yellow top blue skirt combination a few months back and taken a selfie to post to my Instagram. And I had thought it was an interesting combination. So I decided to recreate it for a style practice blog post. And I used my cheap silver bangle bracelets to make hoop earrings and a necklace to accessorize the outfit.

Luckily I had emailed these two to myself so I could download them to my phone in order to change my hair color to blue in my Perfect365 app. I’ve recently cut my hair to a nearly bald length, and I’m thinking about alternating between blue, green, red and purple hair color. But I don’t have the courage to put color in my hair yet so I’m doing it digitally for now.

As you can see I’m still limited to taking my pictures in my unimpressive living room, but that’s all I’ve got for now. And to be frankly honest, I’m too self conscious to take pictures of myself in public places anyway. But I do still plan to try to do some shoots in locations other than inside my apartment. Not sure when that will happen, but in the meantime, I won’t let not having money for great clothes and for traveling to great locations be a reason not to keep after my goals.

Singer songwriter Adelamonica AKA Avenue Sixty editor in chief. Writing as Monica for The Monica Archives. Writing has always been one of my passions. In fact, when I was a teenager, I used to tell people they should remember my name, because I was going to become a famous author. I used to live to write and write to live--not in the sense of writing for income but writing to combat depression and to feel a sense of purpose. I've written novels, poems, articles and essays that I tried unsuccessfully to get published over many years starting in my teens. When I discovered blogging several ages ago, I turned to that avenue as a means of doing what I love without having to worry about publishers and their rejection letters. Modeling is also something I have always enjoyed and something I wanted very badly to do as a teenager. So badly that I used to lie and tell people I was a model. I would carry around a large portfolio style photo album and claim it was my modeling portfolio. But, as with my writing, the people with the power to make my modeling dreams come true saw nothing in me that made them stop me in the streets of New York to offer me a modeling contract with their agency. So when I discovered the ability to photograph my own self (before cell phones and selfies) I took up a hobby of pretend modeling at home and that hobby has remained with me throughout my life as a form of self expression and self therapy. I ask that you kindly excuse my lack of worldliness and any instances where I demonstrate lack of tact or lack of knowledge and even lack of basic intelligence in my writing and posing. I'm just here trying to have a little fun doing the things that make me happy. I'm just an average human for whom writing and posing and singing and dancing and the other things I do are ways I express myself and keep myself going on this ever challenging journey of life. I hope you will find something even remotely useful or interesting in the things I share.
