In spite of an etiquette post that may have dissuaded participants of the Throwback Thursday phenomenon, and a follow up story that vetted in favor of a new hashtag: #FastForwardFriday, the former, unofficial totem of Instagram’s success has demonstrated pungent staying power. So much so that it has transcended the boundaries of the app. So you know what they say, right?
Your love is like a river.
But also, if you can’t beat them, join them.
It’s just, I don’t feel like filtering images from the days of personal yore. My pacifier was no different from yours and I’m still shaking off the terror that comes with perennial banana curls, so, I’m going to try a nod to fashion on this holy, pre-Memorial day of retrospection.
Last May, I wrote a story about past collections I still think about romantically now. It is an assault on unilateral, female humanity that I left out Hannah MacGibbon’s S/S 2010 collection for Chloé which arguably initiated a steadfast love affair that all bonafide members of the man repeller tribe would grow to experience with not just denim tuxedos, anoraks and ponchos, but with the idea of socks to compliment our sandals and messy-ass hair to create nests atop our heads.
The flimsy white silk and chiffon dresses should not be overlooked either — especially in a setting that promotes the anterior, rugged cues. Doesn’t it all just seem so…easy? It’s style that doesn’t take much thought and feels as fresh today as it did when I first saw it from a Dell desktop Dell. (Don’t tell anyone I had one of those.)
Of course, though, all this is to beg the question: what does your Fashion #TBT look like?
