I can’t believe I’ve been doing this for over half a year now. But in that time, I think I can say that this series doesn’t belong in Barcelos Doesn’t Know anymore. I now know what I like, what’s work appropriate, and how to admit when something isn’t working.
Or rather, Barcelos didn’t know she could wear a tulle skirt without looking completely ridiculous. I asked for your help and I was lucky to have several answers to choose from!
I decided that if this was going to be a proper experiment, I wasn’t going to just throw together outfits based on your recommendations, take pictures of them, and then call it a day. I was going to wear a tulle skirt out in the wild, doing the things I usually do during the week.
Back when I was figuring what to call my blog, I eventually landed on Barcelos Knows for two reasons: I love a good slant rhyme and I’m known for being an insufferable know-it-all. While writing what you know is one of the oldest pieces of writing advice, I don’t know everything.
But you know what? There’s nothing stopping me (or anyone else, really) from writing about what I don’t know. In that spirit, I’m starting a new series on my blog: Barcelos Doesn’t Know. I’m pretty clueless about some things but I want to change that, one blog post at a time.
