Two weeks were set aside, here on Story Behind The Cloth, for the purpose of celebrating self-love and -care through fashion. We celebrated through giveaways, games, and daily guest posts from 14 of my wonderful blogger friends. It was a beautiful experience and i'm so thankful to everybody who helped host and those who celebrated with us!

This post is for those of you who may have missed the party, or parts of it--Or for anybody who may want to reminisce and look back on the encouragement that was given during the event.

Fashion + Self Love Party: For the Love of the Gram – A Short Guide for Increasing Self-Love Despite Social Media Influence https://storybehindthecloth.com/fashion-self-love-party-for-the-love-of-the-gram/ https://storybehindthecloth.com/fashion-self-love-party-for-the-love-of-the-gram/#comments Wed, 14 Feb 2018 08:00:43 +0000 http://storybehindthecloth.com/?p=3296 Guest post by Savana from Official Savana Rae.
Instagram has so much interesting content and impressive content creators. However, the bar is set very high. When the bar is set as high as it is, growing may become an issue. It mainly drives attention to the biggest accounts--which undermines the rest no matter how good your content may be.

I have noticed that a lot of people have been affected by this, and a big loss in confidence has increased in my fellow influencers and those who follow me.

I want to give you some self-love advice that I myself follow when I feel low, because let's face it--we all have THOSE days.

This guide to increase self-love is one that I find incredibly useful, as my mom reminds most days that we all need to love ourselves first so that we can be at peace. Think about it this way, if you didn't love yourself, how can you feel at peace?

I am only 21 and I enjoy being single, honestly. Not having to worry about someone else and just focusing on yourself for a while is refreshing, honey!

Here are my top 3 outfits for a Valentine’s Day Self-Date!

Fashion + Self Love Party: 5 Reasons Why Narcissism Can Actually Improve Your Life https://storybehindthecloth.com/fashion-self-love-party-5-reasons-why-narcissism-can-actually-improve-your-life/ https://storybehindthecloth.com/fashion-self-love-party-5-reasons-why-narcissism-can-actually-improve-your-life/#respond Mon, 12 Feb 2018 08:00:10 +0000 http://storybehindthecloth.com/?p=3239 Guest post by Eliza from Aesthetic Distance.
Narcissism gets a bad rap in the media and pop culture. When we call someone a narcissist, it is almost never a compliment. They have a reputation for being sociopaths. We say we can't stand them, but research shows we actually tend to view them as more confident, intelligent and attractive than other people. Sure, at the extreme (which is called Narcissistic Personality Disorder), it can lead to a lack of empathy and a sense of entitlement. But then why are so many narcissists successful and well-respected? Since we live in a world of "the personal brand," I'm here to dispute the bad reputation of narcissism and talk about the good parts of being a narcissist.

Fashion + Self Love Party: Channelling Influences to Suit You – How Style and Identity Bring about Personal Change https://storybehindthecloth.com/fashion-self-love-party-how-style-brings-personal-change-and-self-discovery/ https://storybehindthecloth.com/fashion-self-love-party-how-style-brings-personal-change-and-self-discovery/#comments Sun, 11 Feb 2018 08:00:04 +0000 http://storybehindthecloth.com/?p=3019 Guest post by Imaan from The August Clause.
Identity is something that I have struggled and still do struggle with, and I can confidently
say that I have an existential crisis almost every second day. I took my personal experience
of struggling to fit into a specific mold and tried to make sense of it, with the one thing I
love– fashion.
The more I started to incorporate small, subtle trend pieces the more I saw the way I dress
evolve, and funny enough, the more I started to understand myself.

We like clothing labels.
Could you create a label that fully describes your content? Would you be able to list all your physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual needs? You can imagine the lengthy list of instructions on the label would require.
Practicing self-love naturally affords you with increased confidence, poise, and self-assurance.
Practicing self-love naturally assists you with defining your own personal style, labeled only by yourself.
Here are some simple steps to help you create that personal style:
