That time of year has reared its indelibly blasé head again. The shows have showed, the peacocks have, erm, cocked and uninspiration is settling like dust on a kitchen countertop — my kitchen countertop — which hasn’t been used since I moved into my apartment nearly two years ago.
Yet here we stand, fighting to stay stimulated utilizing whatever the Internet will provide. Maybe it’s a Cats that Look Like Runway Samples story from Vogue.com, a necklace that resembles what I believe to be the physical manifestation of the word “inner-working,” from Net-a-Porter, Style.com’s new Model Walk Off feature or full, under $200 outfits as offered from the fiscally sensible wizards behind Asos.
And in one additional bout of contest, I’m also suggesting that we dole out all the advice we’ve either given or received to keep the wheels of creativity above ground, in motion, and moving fast. So, please take this moment to reflect on just that. I’ll get the ball rolling.
Advice received (from my mother): “Invest in shoes and bags – you can improvise the rest with meager means.”
Advice given (as influenced by Roxanne Assoulin, the founder of Lee Angel): “Don’t look at what she’s wearing, look at how she’s wearing it.”
Okay, you’re up. We’ll take everything we can get in an attempt to compile a roster of tips so good, you’ll wonder why you ever deigned to frost them. HEHE.
