With Athleisure still going strong, and the fact that I’m now an exerciser (as much as I hate to admit it), I have a newfound appreciation for those brands that do both regular clothes and work out gear very well. They are few and far between, but this is one that really kills it in this category.
Like I mentioned on the last day of the year, it seems like 2014 was the year of Photoshop fails / getting called out for altering your Instagram photos. But in just one week, there’s been a few things that make me think 2015 is the year of #nofilter…but a true #nofilter (not the nearly 10 million #nofilter lies…which we’ll get to in a moment). So why exactly are we re-touching these photos in the first place, whether for Instagram or a major publication?
Thankfully there’s less than 48 hours left in 2014, meaning you won’t have to see anymore yearly round-up posts for quite a while BUT because the clock is ticking, let’s check out some CCF highlights from ’14, shall we? (I promise, there’s some good ones…maybe even some you missed!)
On this day (or around this day) in 2009, I made a free account on WordPress (chicityfashion.wordpress.com) and started writing about fashion things because I was bored in college. I never even checked for grammatical errors, I put terrible collages together in Polyvore and all because I don’t know how to use Photoshop…and I thought no one would ever see this site. Fast forward, five years later…and holy shit, this is my job.
Hi, my name is Jena and I’m new to exercise…
Is basically how I introduced myself my first month or so of working out (which would involve me breaking a sweat no more than once a week). Health and fitness are things I don’t think I’ve ever touched on here on CCF (the closest I’ve gotten is discussing activewear as ready to wear). So now that I have this wonderful life category where I can pretty much write about anything, this seemed to be the perfect time to talk about this stuff.
