>> As if procrastinating over lapsed deadlines on all fronts isn’t bad enough, I’ve now turned my fixations on finding new ways to recycle old photos. It’s a dangerous quagmire when you start yourself off on Google searches, leading from one photo the next. However, I’ve been meaning to find a way of adding context to old outfits, which might sound like an arse-y pretentious thing to do but is actually aiding me through this whole book/inspiration/why-we-dress-the-way-we-do thought process thing-a-ma-jig. Confused? I am too. All I do know is that image searching and picking out tunes sure beats staring dumbly at my Word screen typing Carrie Bradshaw-esque intros out, deleting and then wretchedly turning on Wimbledon to yell at players I hardly know. I’ve dubbed them Inspa-Outfits – as in inspiration and Insta mixed together. I know. Hybrid words are loathsome but it’s a temporary holding title until I can get out of this brain fog and think of something cleverer. A few of them have gone up on Instagram but I thought I’d upload a few more here through Vimeo (so much prettier) as well. In the spirit of being Tumblr-esque, I won’t listing out credits for each individual image but am happy to give them if you ask. The point is to give a 15-30 second mind blur of what goes into an outfit. Or something to that effect. I’m already feeling like a prat as I’m typing this up. Maybe I should stick to sorting out socks into colour order. Fortunately, Paris has come-a-calling where haute couture will be the major distraction for the next few days. You’ll get more sense out of me then hopefully.
