Dawn and I took a self-proclaimed holiday from blogging to reflect a little bit on the direction we’re heading.

It seems that in the blogosphere, traffic means more than anything, sure enough having more readers does mean that more people appreciate your work and writings but in the midst of trying to generate posts more frequently, we kinda lost ourselves and it felt as though we were compromising the quality of our blog posts.

This little break also made us realise that we really just love shooting pictures and trying to show people how black outfits can be interesting.

This outfit post is from one of those little outings we had in Haji Lane, as you can see, we do really enjoy this gritty little lane.

Overworn shoes and bag. Which reminded me that I have yet to showcase these awesome shoes that I bought just the other day. I can’t wait!

Oh yeah, over worn harness too. Does anyone have the problem of wanting to wear the same item over and over cause you like it so much?

Black outfit Breakdown:

  • Dress: Threadbare & Squirrel (Haji Lane)
  • Harness: Wonderwool (Haji Lane)
  • Bag: Far East plaza
  • Shoes: Jeffrey Campbell
  • Accessories: m)phosis, Diva, Marc Jacobs

    Thank you!
    I’d be very sad if I really wore out my favorite pieces.

    I have that problem, but in all honesty if I’ve paid good money for an item of clothing then I want to get my money’s worth x3
    I don’t blame you for overwearing those shoes, they’re lush!

    Your black outfits (as well as, of course, the DIY posts) are my favorite part to your blog, so there is no harm in getting back to basics!

    I somewhat assume you’ve already seen these tips, but in case you haven’t, I think that reading from http://writetodone.com/2008/08/05/darren-rouse-top-tips-for-writers/ (especially his answers to “What are your tips for developing speed without sacrificing quality?” really helps put blogging into perspective. It surely helped me out!

    Those shoes! I can’t get enough of them! Although they look uncomfortable, but hopefully that is just from face value?
    And what a massive covet-worthy item that harness is. Indeed, I have a certain ruffled pink shirt that I can’t stop wearing myself, especially when paired with black shorts I also can’t stop wearing!

    Hi Anne,

    Thank you very much for the link, I absolutely love Darren Rowse’s writing and I follow his Problogger Blog and twitter too. We really hope to achieve some kind of balance between quality of posts and the frequency. We find ourselves conflicted by people who say they would like to see us post regularly and people who just enjoy posts that we put more effort into. It’ll probably take a little bit more time for us to calibrate ourselves.

    Those shoes are the MOST comfortable shoes I own. I could really wear them to death.
    I wanna see that outfit you can’t stop wearing! <3

    Hi Mel! thank you so much for your support.
    Those YSL shoes were a steal, I was lucky to find them in an outlet mall in my size. :)
    keep wearing black!
