>> As if procrastinating over lapsed deadlines on all fronts isn’t bad enough, I’ve now turned my fixations on finding new ways to recycle old photos. It’s a dangerous quagmire when you start yourself off on Google searches, leading from one photo the next.  However, I’ve been meaning to find a way of adding context to old outfits, which might sound like an arse-y pretentious thing to do but is actually aiding me through this whole book/inspiration/why-we-dress-the-way-we-do thought process thing-a-ma-jig.  Confused?  I am too.  All I do know is that image searching and picking out tunes sure beats staring dumbly at my Word screen typing Carrie Bradshaw-esque intros out, deleting and then wretchedly turning on Wimbledon to yell at players I hardly know.  I’ve dubbed them  Inspa-Outfits – as in inspiration and Insta mixed together.  I know.  Hybrid words are loathsome but it’s a temporary holding title until I can get out of this brain fog and think of something cleverer.  A few of them have gone up on Instagram but I thought I’d upload a few more here through Vimeo (so much prettier) as well.  In the spirit of being Tumblr-esque, I won’t listing out credits for each individual image but am happy to give them if you ask.  The point is to give a 15-30 second mind blur of what goes into an outfit.  Or something to that effect.  I’m already feeling like a prat as I’m typing this up.  Maybe I should stick to sorting out socks into colour order.  Fortunately, Paris has come-a-calling where haute couture will be the major distraction for the next few days.  You’ll get more sense out of me then hopefully.
