all the cool internet girls i see wearing platforms exude CONFIDENCE and POWER.

reminds me of all the clothes i loved looking at before i "got into fashion" - all this outlandish stuff: PVC skirts, mesh shirts, clear backpacks, really colorful prints, smiley and alien patches, chokers, fuzzy sweaters and fuzzy pants, holographic shoes, glittery shiny stuff. looking back now it seems like a mix of 90s and club/rave influences? generally very -internet- clothes that don't translate well to wearing in everyday settings

once i started trying to dress fashionable, i dismissed that kind of style because i knew i never could and never would want to look exactly like that, which i realize now is pretty silly haha. not that i feel like i missed much by not keeping up with whatever shops/blogs i had been keeping up with, but i feel i have a better, more appreciative approach to fashion/clothes than before. i'm not ashamed of the things i like, however ridiculous they are, and i can like things without having to be fanatic about it/wanting to own it

recently i have been finding myself drawn to things similar to what i was drawn to before fashion, probably since i've been limiting myself in terms of color and style for so long. i get so excited by different fabrics and bright colors and fun prints and fun silhouettes, i feel a bit like a bird being attracted to shiny things lol. seriously i'm a little mad at myself now for trying to do the whole ~minimalistic~ ~uniform~ ~capsule wardrobe~ whatever thing when that's not me at all

so i've been thinking about this line from the Kanye song Saint Pablo: "she got the same shoes as my wife but she copped 'them at aldo."

what Ye is saying here is pivoting on a point he's been making a lot lately about fashion: he believes that people should be able to afford cool shit, and that talent in fashion should be going toward creating more egalitarian lines of clothing.

which in a way is sort of happening. a lot of big companies do collaborations with fashion talent these days. i just bought a bomber from uniqlo for $50 that's faux suede. no one in my real-life knows it's "faux-suede" they just think it's a cool jacket, and it was only $50.

the jacket isn't a knockoff. it's a lesser quality version for sure, but it will still maintain all the utility that a jacket should provide - and i still feel good wearing it.

i feel like i'm shifting into buying clothes at a much lower price point nowadays. this is partly because i'm broke as shit, but also because we have affordable options in 2016 that eclipse "fast-fashion" in a lot of ways. i'm sure some of you would argue that a $50 bomber is still fast fashion, but it doesn't seem that way to me. i can buy three wonderful button down shirts for $90. if you rewind 6 years that was a lot harder to pull off.

in summation, as a poor college kid, i feel grateful that i can afford marginally cool clothing and still have money with which to get fucked up on the weekends.

Good news! Paracord is removable, so I guess they just styled the shoes with paracord bracelets in previous photos. Also, all white SFAF-1 say no more they are mine.

Damn you @oucho

I have actual career things I should be spending money on, and then you go and make those.

Wide leg? Double pleats? Belt loops low-set just so?

If you were pushing any more of my buttons you'd be undoing them (love)

Always wondered about this, how do Japanese people who are size 4/EU50s or bigger find clothes? Do they have to resort to Uniqlo XLs? Are they even allowed to like clothes? Is it actually profitable for Asian stockists to only carry up to 48? Really doesn't seem like it.

I wish more labels can be like Nepenthes where they keep a detailed spreadsheet of every piece their stockists carry, and share that information indiscriminately to save everyone time. Seems a pretty standard thing to do for any business.

One more random thought, I remember reading about Tavi Gevinson many years ago before Instagram existed, she was portrayed as an actual savant who had good enough instinct that Rei Kawakubo followed her blog, and she got in through old-fashioned blogging before the newer social media emerged. I haven't heard much about her since and haven't re-read that article, but, what was she? In terms of how good she actually was versus the attention she got? Seemed pretty fascinating.

I spilled a ramekin of sauce on myself when I was having dinner tonight, but Fancy Internet Fashion Shorts saved the day and cleaned up easily at the restaurant and cleaned up even better once I turned the shower on them to get the last of the oils out. I'm still wearing them now because they're not soaking through like cotton shorts would.

Thanks, Fancy Internet Fashion Shorts!

Grailed low ballers make me want to smash my head into the wall and set the piece in selling on fire instead of sell it.

No I can't give you $50 off and then fucking send it to you record and signed half way across the world for free.

It's a fair fucking price to begin with!

left my raf sweater on my bedroom floor, went off to college for a month and a half, came back home to find that a spider had laid eggs in it. tempted to sell both it and the eggs on grailed for the spook factor

Love me some Maggie but can I actually get away with walking about with my jumper tucked in as well?

I'm about to say fuck it to outerwear shopping this winter and just buy some comfy knitwear. I don't need anything weather resistant so the only reason for a real jacket is layering.

Jumper tuck is a heinous fake concept. My theory is that it was created by stylists to show off pleated/high rise trousers (big trend) and is getting adopted off the back of that. Horrid.

I try to allot myself no more than one stupid question per week. Here’s this week’s. I’m interpreting “is a heinous fake concept” as “bad”.

Suppose you tuck your sweater into pants that aren’t particularly interesting above the fly. What do you lose by stuffing it into your pants?

Off the top of my head:

  • If you lift your arms up, your sweater is more likely to come out than a mere shirt would.
  • this would only really work if your pants were too large by a size or two. This would be handy if you’re in the middle of a significant, prolonged weight loss and want to postpone getting new pants, but this doesn’t describe most of us.

Any other drawbacks/benefits?
