how long has it been since i’ve done an outfit post?
for the past couple of years i’ve been feeling like a frumpy, bloated, blimp of old housewife. yes, a direct result of sitting on my bum 24 hours a day and working through the nights while at parsons, and eating snacks at 4am to try to keep myself awake so i can get some work done.
not an ideal diet, to say the least. i’ve heard all my life about the american fast food diet, and it seems i caught that plague upon moving to new york. i’ve never eaten so much snacks and instant food, nor ordered so much delivery in my life. so taking pictures of myself was just the farthest thought from my mind, because i felt ugly ,and when i did take photos i hated how i looked.
last night, however, i was out at dinner, and decided to get a couple of shots since i had my camera out with me. apparently, i didn’t get the memo that one shouldn’t pile too much prints on top of one another. i realized later when i got home, that everything i wore had some kind of pattern on it. a bit too much perhaps?
i’m obsessed with prints though. especially gingham, stripes and polka dots. i have so much polka dots in my closet, you’d be shocked. what do you think? do you like prints? do you wear prints?
well i’ll be honest; i need to do some market research here because i’m noticing people buy more of the “plain” stuff in my collection than the prints. even while publications like WWD and all those trend reports are saying that prints are hot right now. hmmm…. do people just not like prints as much as i do? or is it that they don’t know how to wear them?
i do wonder.
oh. and here’s additional evidence that i am not a style blogger: i don’t own a tripod. meh!!
