girl crush – no. 2

fashion, girl crush series

It has been a long time coming for my second and very far apart articles in this late bloomer of a series. I felt quite a lot of pressure from myself as to who could follow in the footsteps of my first girl crush. Was someone such as a fashion blogger worthy of being my second? It was not until I stumbled across Maja Wyh that I knew indeed she was a formidable women to add to this series. Maja Wyh is a german theatre and film student turned fashion blogger treading where very few have before her. I became a fan of Maja courtesy of pinterest and ever since then I have had quite a fascination with her. There is no one quite like her in the style stakes. She is part fashion goddess, part style chameleon. She has such a unique presence about her. Maja’s experimental and eclectic styling is a constant source of inspiration… or more often than not, source of wardrobe envy. She elegantly mixes tomboy, with a touch of boho and quite a delicate dash of rock n roll. She fuses high fashion, high street and vintage in one outfit. Grunge with sleek, minimal with layered, all the while making oversized look elegant, feminine, flattering and damn sexy. In a world where everyone seems to be wearing less and less clothing, with the opinion that skin is sexy. Maja is a lesson in elegance, sexy-reserved, minimally detailed romance and that looking at the whole picture is certainly worth your while.

In an interview she did for gds-online.com, she cites that her ambition is to inspire other people. Be it with art, photography or fashion. She says that blogging is about authenticity. That what we see is real. It is her. Her blog is a platform for self-realisation. If you head to her blog majawyh.com, not only does fashion and her styling have you scrolling for hours. It is her beautiful curation of art, rooms and her own personal polaroids that keeps you mesmerized. For a person who started taking photos only a year ago, first with a self timer and then later by her Mum. She has certainly proved in a short time that she is a force to be reckoned with. Her beautiful effortless aesthetic combined with her alluring quiet confidence and fearless attempt to try something experimental combines perfectly, all the while staying completely relevant. I unequivocally recommended you follow her blog http://majawyh.com . you will click back on her “older” posts all day long and be fixated. Come to think of it, you might just find me over there right now.

great expectations

Uncategorized

I have been neglecting this humble little blog of mine. Life seems to get in the way and before I know it, weeks have passed without me putting up a new post of images or writing a new entry. I think it is the writing that scares me the most. Is what I am saying even interesting?  Is anyone actually out there reading what I have to say?  I place such high expectations on myself that what I put out in the sphere that is the internet to be interesting or relevant or even readable. This blog is not the only place I put such hard sometimes unreachable expectations on myself though. Life in general hits me hard in the face when things don’t turn out they way I want them to.  I set the bar too high, aim just beyond my reach to only come crashing down with a loud thump when the universe sticks out her foot and I come tripping down back to earth. The beautiful thing with a blog though is that I am anonymous and can remain so as long as I need to. Apart from my dear friends who stop by from time to time. If anyone else were to stumble upon Imperfectly Perfect, they can only get to know me from the words I put into type or the images that move me. So I am going to make it my mission to allow whoever might be out there to get to know me a little better. Not a daily commitment, let’s just aim for weekly or twice weekly. Slow and steady wins the race. I hope you like getting to know me as much as I look forward to getting to know you… whoever you might be, wherever you might.
