getting dressed is not simply a way for me to cover myself up-- it's one of my main creative outlets. i feel squelched lately, creatively, emotionally, mentally, and even getting dressed properly has felt like a struggle for me. so many people view clothing catalogues as pamphlets filled with nothing but adverts for items they might be able to afford. i rarely even look at prices. i admire separates, but i use the catalogues as inspiration far over anything else. getting a packet of catalogues in the mail is essentially as good as getting a pair of beautifully made louboutins, a vintage sequin dress, or a new sketchbook. it helps me look at my own clothes, makeup, and jewelry-- the Paints and Crayons for my body-- in a different way.
at some point, i know i want to style for catalogues and magazines. i want to be the inspiration. in the meantime, i'm struggling in and out of these creative potholes. i just want to look upwards and actually move upwards, too.
