So this blog miiiight just be a general art blog at this point. I still love doing outfit pictures, but it seems more and more that my blog’s success no long revolves around them. I’m just fine with that. I for one appreciate style blogs that really broaden the meaning of “style”. My favorite blogger these days is Rebecca of The Clothes Horse: she’s so genuinely interested in an artistic aesthetic and finding beauty in every corner.
Because fashion is boundless. It’s so much more than the clothes on our collective back. It’s how we live, how we portray ourselves, what we find aesthetic power in. It informs so much. It’s a marriage of utility and whimsy. And I could talk about it for hours.
My beautiful friend Jake brought me back this robe from his studies abroad in Australia! He asked me what sort of souvenir I wanted; I told him to opshop me something. And opshop he did. I’ve basically been living in this robe for days now.
The day after I received this robe, a GIANT bug took up residence in my house. Josh insists it came from Australia to kill us all. Coincidence? More like LIZARD PEOPLE.
