thinking about clothes

Posted in Uncategorized by eatlooklisten on January 4, 2009

Now that school is looming large in the next couple weeks, naturally my thoughts turn to my wardrobe. What classes to take? When can I start looking for internships? What supplies do I need? Eh, who cares when there are outfits to think about?

Obviously I’m not being serious, but it is fun to think about. I’ve always discussed the “{insert season here} fashion plan” with people, but I don’t ever think I’d a) put it into practice or b) properly described it until now. I realize I’m ripping off the lovely Making It Lovely, but it’s more of a homage to it, and also a throwback to the countless Photoshop collages I did while working in fashion. Ugh, typing that out still looks weird – like “working in fashion” denotes that my job was super cool and exciting, when really I was just lucky and it was much more normal than it sounds. But that’s another rant for another day. Onto the clothes!
