fashions are swept to the side too, granted they arguably "unite" too, but personal style is such a valid thing. i find it so satisfying to wear something that looks almost ugly on the hanger and make it so completely my own and wear it with such an air that it looks rather lovely on, and getting a buzz from feeling pleased with an outfit is something to be proud of, not ashamed of. sofia coppola's quote springs to mind.
"you're considered superficial and silly if you are interested in fashion, but I think you can be substantial and still be interested in frivolity"
three cheers for originality and the randomness of pairing that dress with that jacket!
i've given the pictures used credit where possible, though a few are from cyber nooks and crannies, so if it belongs to you, give me a poke and tell me the source, or i'll remove it if requested. and the same goes for using these "handcrafted collages". please ask before you use, i poured delicate time and spiritualized sweat into them.
