Ep 16 “Carole”

Hi there! I’m back … again. With a podcast episode this time! In this episode it’s just me in my new “studio” (I explain in the intro). In this 100% unscripted, not-super-planned-out episode, I give a quick-ish update about what I’ve been up to this past year, and then get into the meat of the episode: wedding dress shopping, and my experience with it.

I had a lot of fun getting back to making podcast episodes, and all the content collection that goes along with it, and hope that that’s felt in this latest episode. And with that, let’s dive into the episode!

Finale?

This is a very belated post. These photos are from a couple of weeks ago, but I haven’t posted them yet. A summary of the reasons why are:

  • this project naturally came to a conclusion
  • my personal life has changed (for the good) and I’m choosing to put my energies elsewhere
  • the world is burning, and, again, I feel like my energies could be put to better use elsewhere

I’ll delve into those things in a minute, but first, let’s take a look at the final leg of this project.

Week ten … oh wow.

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!

Week Nine? Sure.

Sartorially this was a good week. At least from what I remember. Between the good weather, and being able to wear some of my favourite pieces (because of the good weather) I’m painting this past week with a broad brush of “good”. Let’s review these “good” outfits!

Week Seven? Who knows …

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 …

Week Five

You’d think that by having to stay home due to government ordered isolation, each week would feel the same. Well, you’d be right, for the most part. But I will say I’m still surprised with how each week goes, including my clothing choices. Shall we dive in?

Week Four

I have now been working from home for a month. One month. Four weeks. That means that I have been doing this project for just as long. I am lacking the words to properly express how this feels to me, so let’s just jump into some photos and observations. Shall we?

Week Three

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!

A little something different …

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.
