I think I’m going to start documenting my outfits daily. Because
a) I like clothes
b) I like myself
c) I like being organized
d) I probably will stop doing this in 3 days, but it makes me feel like I have a goal to work towards
e) I kind of missed the whole NY Rez thing….
f) I feel like getting up every day is worth it
g) I can share myself with the world, who needs me dearly
h) I can pretend I’m important
i) Maybe it will help me figure out what the fosnot I want to do with my life.
j) I have a camera
k) I have always toyed with this idea
k) It doesn’t matter what happens from this point on because as Plato says “The beginning is the most important part of the work”
And so it goes
Today’s Reason I Love the Internet: Advanced Style
“I am tired of the cult of youth. The cultural rejection of old age, the stigmatization of wrinkles, grey hair, of bodies furrowed by the years. I am fascinated by Diana Vreeland, Georgia O’Keeffe and Louise Bourgeois, women who have let time embrace them without ever cheating. Society today condemns this, me, I celebrate it.” - Tom Ford
A street style blog for the silver-haired set. So much inspiration! I love these amazing women (and a few colorful men). Here lies hard proof that style and fun don’t have an expiration date. I also love the advice these advanced fashionistas give. Among the best: keep dancing, anything black needs a lot of bling, and always dress for yourself! I am inspired to be better at all of these things, and a little less fearless.
I just died a little inside.
There is something to be said for grace and glamour. Hopefully this royal fever brings back elegance. Damn fashion these days is all about wearing thousands of things and millions of combinations and edgy hair and crazy makeup and blech! I wish things could be simpler.
This may or may not be commentary on life as a whole.
Today I realized how sad it makes me when people don’t give their clothes the life they deserve. A girl was walking ahead of me today with some fashionable black boots.
I noticed them right away, partially because they were slightly too big and were making a big scuffing noise, and partially because they were in stark contrast to the rest of her outfit: an oversized gray sweatshirt (we’re talking XXXL), and an old pair of skinny jeans.
I have nothing against comfortable clothes. Okay maybe a little bit; afterall, it IS possible to be comfortable and still look presentable. But this was too much to bear.
This girl is young, pretty, thin, normal height. AND SHE HAS THESE GREAT BOOTS THAT SHE’S LEAVING OUT TO DIE! The poor things were hanging off of her legs, asking for the winter salt to be wiped away so they could truly be put to some good use.
Instead, there they were. I felt sorry for them, these poor boots. They started out with such potential. They could be rocking some knit dress or killing some dark skinny jeans. Some person out there had designed them right from the bottom of their soul in the name of making some person look fabulous. Instead of being out on the town, they were dying a slow death.
I guess what I’m trying to say is, respect your clothes. I swear it leads to good things! No matter what shape or size you are, the right outfit is an instant confidence booster, not to mention it earns the attention of everyone around you. Without saying a word you take the spotlight.
I admit I’m borderline obsessive. In the grand scheme of things we could all truly go through life wearing rags and it would make little difference, but yet….
I’ll leave you with one last haunting image:
Wait. Someone else has made a warm cropped knit sweater!
Maybe I can wear mine without shame!
Please buy this and start an overwhelming trend!
