I hope y’all are staying safe and healthy as this pandemic trudges on. It’s a holiday Friday in Canada, so you’re getting your weekly dose of judging my dressing habits a day early. Let’s not delay this any longer. Here we go!
Another week gone by. Ready to see what this home-dwelling goblin looked like this past week? Well here you go!
Enter Week Two:
Oh hello, it’s been a minute, hasn’t it? Fear not, I’m still here, just not as much as I’d like to be. Like most folks these days, I am now working from home, finding myself in search of creative outlets, and ways to add a bit more routine to my day. Since I cannot conduct interviews the way that I prefer to (in person, photographing the interviewee’s wardrobe) I had to think beyond my usual structure. After some time and contemplation I have decided to revisit a project I explored from 2014-2015, titled The Dressed Body (unknowingly after a Joanne Entwistle essay of the same name — oops), when I was just a young fashion scholar working out some ideas.
This is the first week of doing this project in my current home. I’m still figuring things out, but we can only go up from here, right?
