Editor's Letter #1: January

If I type "Editor's Letter" over and over again, will I sound less pretentious? Probably not. But hey, they say dress for the job you want, not for the job you have, so here I am typing this in my pj's. Oh, the perks and paradoxes of sitting behind a screen. This "they" people always talk about also says that the third one is the charm, and I'm betting all my non-existential money for that saying to be true when it comes to the relaunch of my blog, now website?: blanche neve.

So, why the re-launch?

Ever since I launched blanche neve, I've always believed that this online journal of mine should represent my way of seeing the world ―whether it be through personal style, countless rants or sharing tips and tricks.

The perfect filter of the lens of the self, my self. 

Yet somewhere along the road I became discontent with the space I had created. Why write when the words I typed were just an echo of the passion that once was? Was I creating content that I would read elsewhere? 

Not really, to be honest.

However, thanks the endless research revolving around my graduating thesis, I stumbled across this quote that the great Jorge Luis Borges once wrote: "I am all the writers that I have read, all the people that I have met, all the women that I have loved; all the cities that I have visited", and to that I would add all the sites I have accessed.  

It it no secret that thanks to social media― along with  the ever growing empire that personal style blogs have created― the way we perceive fashion has drastically changed, but even though "blogging" could come across as shallow it didn't mean I completely lost site of what made me fall in love with it in the first place: self-expression. 

Then why stop writing? Thankfully, this time away from the interweb made me want to breathe life back into this place.  Because beyond the mélange, the melting pot, and the individual collective that is the internet there's always a perspective that can be added and an outskirt to be explored. 

That's why, despite that it's still me running this little ol' thing, blanche neve's new aim is to be the same but different ― similar to the infinite shades of white you find at your nearest Home Depot. It will sill center around what was (you'll still see me posing awkwardly from time to time), but now it shall branch out and open a parenthesis to what could be ―whether it be regarding my own personal identity crisis, style, beauty, culture and art articles of the sorts.

On that account, I shall follow the ways of David Foster Wallace and (mis)quote: 

The internet is water. This is water.  This is the internet.

Welcome to the new: blanche neve 

Sincerely, Bianca Nieves!
