feminism and fashion

1. Do you think there is an incapability between feminism and a love for fashion?
For the record, I'm not a feminist. And if I were, I don't see why there would be an incapability considering that feminism is about choice, plus there is a whole create-your-own-definition-of-feminism thing. So, there is no incapability. If there is any, it depends on the person.

2. There is more to each of us than a love for fashion, how do you incorporate every aspect of yourself into your blog?
Well, Sweet Blog is a melange of things, and also to an extent, personal. I also have other fashion-related and fashion-centric blogs, can be found in the sidebar.

3. With the fashion industry still being a male-dominated profession, how do you think it would differ if women played a larger role?
I think I can say something on that if I were in the fashion industry, but I'm not.

4. How is your self-image and the way you carry yourself informed by your beliefs?
To speak the truth, I don't understand the question. Beliefs as in my feminist principles? As I said before I am not a feminist, in the first place. As for how I carry myself, I think I have already done a post on that.

5. Do you think clothing/makeup/hair helps communicate the truth about yourself or are those things superfluous add-ons?
I believe that fashion helps you show off your personal identity. That's why it is important. Everyone should have a sense of style. Fashion, in fact, in a way, can even help develop your personality. Though I am not the most fashion conscious person, but I have a sense of style. Dressing up majorly depends on my temperament. So, even though I am fashionable, there is more to me than that.

beauty products

1. What's your favorite drug store makeup product and your favorite higher-end product?
I don't use much "make-up" in the true sense of the word. Just compact and kohl and sometimes a liquid eyeliner. And of course, nail polishes. Born Lippy Body Shop Passionberry lip balm if you can consider that. Which is even more expensive than the kohl I use. So that would be my favourite high-end product. My favourite drug store product should be talcum and baby powder.

2. Is there one type of product that is your go-to, can't live without?
Kohl, definitely.

3. What's the best hair product you've ever used?
Dove shampoo. The one for a daily wash.

4. Fess up, what's the worst beauty look you've tried to rock and look back at now with a little shame or apprehension that you actually did that?
I have never been much interested in make-up but I have always wanted to rock the red lipstick. I have tried it many times, only to rinse my lips shortly.

5. When it comes to beauty products, we all use the same basic products. What do you use that helps show off your personal flare and personality?
60s eye makeup and red nail polish
