It's been a whole since we last met here. But I have good excuses!
After the dog ate my laptop, and falling off (..a cliff?) rendered me an amnesiac for a dramatically convinient length of time; some genuinely upsetting, albeit generic, life events rendered fashion unnecessary and irrelevant for while.
Maybe you've experienced that sort of apathy towards the inevitable meaninglessness of clothing when faced with the loss of health* and/or relationships? Well, with the healing electromagnetic power of the internet (these awesomely wise/ creatively inspiring blogs: A Beautiful Mess, Marc and Angel, Free People and Lifehacker), along with time etc, hope and positivity are reinstalled. I've resubscribed to "fashion".
As Olivier Zahm says in this showstudio interview, "Fashion is an escape from the banality, the vulgarity of the world... An escape from everyday life".
#fashionismytherapy. I self medicate with high doses of pleasingly distracting, single minded quests to find THE PERFECT white shirt/ slouchy jeans/ scrunchie.... and have rediscoved the pleasure in looking pretty things and escaping to pretty places.
Above are some of the prettiest places I visited over the Autumn and Winter months.
*I've suffered with ME/ CFS for the past 6 years, and other body let-down issues, and have health blips. But overall I'm doing well... just incase you were wondering!
