Yesterday we went to see our accountant.What do normal people wear when they go across the country to see an accountant they chose carefully for their future business? A suit? An office-like outfit?
I don't know how about the normal people, but me and my hubby we just wore black. He - total black, as always, me - black biker coat, leather pants and white dr.Martens - like boots, while embellishing myself all over with skulls.
I don't know how about the accountant, maybe she was used already to weird people (and I did mention I'm a fashion blogger), so she never even blinked an eye when we walked in.
But people on the street did stare. Some guy, a construction worker, who was sitting on his knees while fixing some road bricks, almost fell on his side when he turned his head, examining us. At first I almost took it as an offense.
But then I said to my man - you know why they stare? You know how we look like? Like these goth guys from South Park. Me being the red-haired one, of course, and my man - the one with curled hair.
So besides an outfit post, here's also an update on my journey as a full time fashion blogger. We're working on the official things like starting up a company, signing with an accountant, etc etc. It all takes time and huge amount of reading in Dutch (gotta love the bureaucratic language! not), as well as a lot of mental work for myself.
While my husband is experienced in working for himself - I never did so in my life. I come from a family of programmers and doctors, who were always and forever working in large companies and never thought of starting anything on their own. I grew up thinking that working freelance (let out owning a company) was a scary thing to do, with a lot of heavy responsibilities and deadly risks that await you in every step you take.
So I'm working now on changing my way of thinking and the way I was used to see the world, while learning to be responsible for my own work routine, while enjoying the freedom of being a boss to myself. It takes time and effort, because mind is a tricky bastard, who pulls out fears and insecurities at the moment when you need them the least.
I think I'm doing quite well till now, I do make mistakes, but I'm learning from them. Luckily, I always have a special someone by my side, who is always there for me, and for us.
