It started out as a place to keep a log of all my outfits, just as an archive to look back through.

Where did the name 1 Fine Dai come from?
It was completely random and I just stuck with it.
Do you find it hard to juggle your blogging with work and social life?
Somewhat, but I try not to let it affect my life by only blogging when I have the time, or when I really feel the need to.
Where does you outfit inspiration come from?
A lot of it comes from tumblr, and of course fellow bloggers.

Good lighting and learning what conditions work best for your camera are crucial. Photo editing is also a must if you don’t have the best of cameras.

Blog because you enjoy it. And don’t feel discouraged if you don’t have as many readers or visitors as you’d like or expect.
