I know I’ve been complaining a lot about maternity wear lately, so today I thought I’d be uncharacteristically positive (I do that sometimes, just to keep you on your toes…), and list…
Hi, I’m Amber, and this is my fashion blog.
Well, OK, not really: while it is often described that way it’s not a fashion blog in the literal sense . You won’t find posts about fashion trends or runway shows here – in fact, you’ll find very little about fashion at all.
What Forever Amber is, then, isn’t so much a fashion blog as it is a style blog. I’ve always loved clothes, you see: ever since I was a teenager, I’ve been fascinated by personal style, and the way clothing can completely change the way you feel about yourself, and that’s what this site is about. So it’s a personal style blog, then, rather than a true fashion blog.
So, what can you expect to find here?
A little bit of everything, really. I mostly focus on daily outfit posts (although not so much with the “daily”, to be honest), showing you what I wear on a day-to-day basis, but I also like to throw in a few fashion tips and general thoughts on personal style.
Speaking of personal style, mine is most often described as “retro-inspired”, although that’s a little bit misleading: I do love retro style (particularly from the 50s and early 60s), but I rarely wear head-to-toe “retro”, and much prefer to mix my retro reproduction dresses with more contemporary styles. I like to call my style “classic” – you, of course, can call it anything you like, but be warned: I don’t follow trends, or subscribe to fashion rules, so what you’ll see here is very much my own personal style. My style philosophy has always been to wear what makes you happy: these are the clothes that make me happy, and I hope you’ll enjoy my posts, and stick around for a while!
