Don't Read This Entry
No, I don't mean it. But here's the thing. For those of us in the northern hemisphere, it's one of the last days of summer, and I intend to spend as little time riding my screen as possible.
Even if you're at work, in school, or are occupied full time in caring for others, can you get twenty minutes to get outdoors, and find some examples of nature's beauty to inspire your love of fashion?
There are some great florals out there, the real kind. The edges of a cloud against a sky might give you new ideas for wearing white frills against a color field. The iridescence of a rain puddle, or a pigeon's neck, is a masterclass in tone and texture.
The point is, I'm going to appreciate the world in three dimensions today, as much as I can. I'll be back next Monday with more of the usual.
