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?
In this episode of Let’s Talk Clothes I sit down with knitter supreme, bicycling enthusiast, and most extroverted introvert (and my sister) Jessica Trach! This episode Jessica and I discuss clothing as self-expression, dressing for different cities and climates, and making your own clothing.
On this episode of Let’s Talk Clothes I sit down with friend to all dogs, Tyra super-fan, and fashion lover Abby Shumka. This episode Abby and I discuss her on-going love of clothing and fashion, personal fashion rules, and the intersection of parenthood and fashion.
On this episode of Let’s Talk Clothes I sit down with fashion nomad and makeup artist Myles Sexton. This episode Myles and I discuss activism through clothing, second hand shopping, and shopping local/Canadian.
In the latest episode of Let’s Talk Clothes I sit down with visual artist, colour enthusiast, and cat owner Caitlin McGuire. Caitlin and I discuss buying clothes second hand, the importance of comfort in clothing, and clothing as self-expression.
After a months-long hiatus, we’re back with another episode of Let’s Talk Clothes! This episode I sit down with Johnny Cann to discuss clothing and self-expression, personal fashion influences and inspirations, and fashion reality TV. Originally hailing from Nova Scotia, is one half of the That’s Spooky podcast (which he co-hosts with his partner, and former Let’s Talk Clothes guest Tyler Hyde), and says that if he were a drag queen his drag name would be either Leslie Fist or Cake Bush.
On A Very Special Episode of Let’s Talk Clothes it’s just me in the studio talking about holiday outfits — past, present, and future. In this episode we cover: memories from childhood as well as more current outfits, both listener sent-in as well as my own. Pour yourself a cup of something warm, snuggle up, and let’s dive in!
