Ten weeks I’ve been at this. Note: my weeks of doing this project don’t line up with how long isolation/quarantine has been happening. I noticed that when talking to someone, and felt I should acknowledge that.We had another week of good weather, which meant I wore some more of my favourite outfits. I really love them, so let’s go look!
Well, fuck. This was a gut-punch of a week that resulted in my breaking point. I’m sure others have been where I am in terms of isolation/shelter in place getting to them, but woof, this was a week. With that said, shall we see how that affected my dressing — and documentation — habits? I think we shall.
This was a tough week for me. This isolation continues, work tasks drag on, my mental health is a roller coaster. It’s a lot. The seasons also refuse to either be warm or cold, so my dressing habits have been equally indecisive in nature. With that, let’s check out how I adorned my skin sack this past week …
Anyone else losing all sense and meaning of time? ‘Cause I sure am! That being said, my wardrobe and how I dress/adorn myself is bringing a lot of joy to my life these days, so I’m thankful for that. On that note, let’s get to some lewks.
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!
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?
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.
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.
Thought I forgot about you? I wouldn’t dream of it. I took a bit of a break, and now I’m back and asking for your help. The holidays are quickly approaching, which means parties and dinners and social gatherings, which, for me, mean one thing: outfits. This got me thinking, “That would make a great listener write-in episode”, and here we are!
If you haven’t guessed yet, I’m asking you to send me your holiday outfit stories. They can be past, present, future; funny, victorious, heartfelt, childhood memories — all of it! Send me all of your stories (and maybe some photos too) and I’ll put it all together in A Very Special Episode that will air around the holidays.
You can send me messages directly through the site (go to the Contact page), or email messages or audio files to firstname.lastname@example.org, or DM me on instagram @talkclothespodcast. I cannot wait to hear from you, and to read your stories!
Here are some of my past holiday card photos to get the ball rolling:
Thanks for stopping by — now go send me some stories!
This week it’s just me in the “studio” talking about second hand shopping — specifically thrift shopping.
What is it?
Why shop this way?
What are the pros and cons?
You get a front-row seat to my thoughts on the matter, along with some walks down memory lane.
I want to hear from you! What are your thoughts on second hand clothes? Love it? Leave it? Let me me know either by DMing me on Instagram at @talkclothespodcast or by emailing me at email@example.com and let me know if you’d like more solo, single-topic episodes like this.
Thanks for listening, and I’ll talk to you next week.
