I have a confession to make. There is one major downside to dressing a little bit more sustainably. I've been walking around with a hole in my jeans. The even greater problem is the frequency of this occurrence - like, let's estimate, every one in four wears, at least. My treasured Nudie jeans are getting… Continue reading the downside of sustainable fashion :: a jeans story.
As much as I dream of the freelance life ( when we decipher what work that would actually mean for me ), I’m coming to doubt my abilities in concentration and motivation that are necessary for this work choice. When a free day is sprung on me with no plans, and no intention of making any, I… Continue reading finding my productive space.
Because I just did it. Look, technically it was more of a scarf-posing-as-belt plus a legit belt, but same thing really. The concept remains. I am not of the typically physically-blessed, embodying perfect proportions. Instead, it's a battle of the waist / hips and the bum. An ass too big to squeeze into the size… Continue reading is double-belting a thing?
The first time I watched Jemima Kirke’s What's Underneath Project, I wept. I’d had an emotional, tear-filled morning and was still feeling pretty tender, ready for another round of sobbing. The second time I attempted I was at work, with a computer that has no scope for viewing / hearing, so tried to find some… Continue reading taking a leaf out of jemima kirke’s book.
It's no lie that I have quite a long-standing fascination with the Olsen twins. I once pledged to re-watch all their ground-breaking movies ( still haven't done that, but I will, just waiting for Netflix to deliver ). I once received an Olsen book ( of the So Little Time variety, I believe ) bought from… Continue reading why i love the row / the olsen twins.
We all know that bedwear-as-outerwear has been doing the high fashion rounds for a while now. It’s undeniable. Whether it’s slinky slips dressed down for the day, matching silk shirts and pants, or simply throw-over kimono-style gowns, the look and appeal is everywhere. Every half-fashionable / creative workplace will have a culprit, at least one. We're… Continue reading pyjama party, always.
Before I flit off into my strange brain-world again or get way too inspired by the Dope Lemon in my ears right now - some readings for you. With the start of 2017 there is a buzzing feeling. People are ready to take on new challenges, walk through more doors, and try something new. At times it… Continue reading important articles :: issue ii.
I've started thinking that maybe I should document my outfit explorations of 2017 ( likely weekday only - I turn into a bum come the weekend ). A new challenge for me creatively, a visualisation of my daily creative pleasure, and an easy access record of those pairings I love, those that worked, and those… Continue reading this year’s creative challenge.
( This is as far as my shocking poetry skills go - you will hear no more after this, promise ). I wish I could make up my mind. I wish I could do everything. I wish I could be busy. I wish I could be peaceful. I wish I could move away from the… Continue reading i wish :: a start to the year.
