Creative Styling :: Wearing a Shirt Backwards

As you know, I have been taking my photos myself since I bought my own camera.

It proved more challenging than I thought at first. This is what happens when you use the remote.

It ends up in the photo because I have to aim it high towards the camera. I also have to press it many times, so my face ends up looking slightly perturbed.

Good thing those remotes were cheap, I'm going back to self timers for sure.

Let get back on track though, this post is about fearlessness.

Be not afraid to wear something in a different way. I got this Robert Rodriguez shirt from Buffalo Exchange when I went to LA.

I loved the color and the raw silk fabric.

However, after wearing it once, I couldn't handle it anymore.

It feels like it's slowly trying to choke me to death.

Maybe not to death, but it's très uncomfortable. I tried to re-sell it at a consignment shop, but no one else wanted it either. Probably for the exact reason I experienced.

The back of the shirt though, is amazing.

So one day, I just decided to turn it around.

Ever since then, I never looked back. I no longer had to, the back is now the front.

I absolutely love this shirt now. The perfect fall accent. But really it can be worn all year round. I am glad it didn't end up selling and gave me a second chance to discover its full potential.
