classics and crushes

There is a great new article up over at Empty Emptor right now about “Wardrobe Classics” that is worth a couple of minutes of your time. 

“I have a couple of blog posts planned that discuss possible reasons why our sense of identity seems so bound up in the way we dress, and how capitalism has hooked into that in a way that aims to draw us into being constant, voracious consumers. There’s no doubt that the way we dress is a part of our personality and allows us to communicate what we consider to be important messages about our identity or our values. Furthermore, there’s no doubt that to varying extents, the way we dress impacts other people’s perceptions of us. On top of all that, clothes can change the way we feel about ourselves – they can make us feel stronger or more empowered or more professional or more confident or whatever. They can help us restore our sense of self and reassert ourselves after we’ve had an experience that shakes us (more on that in a later post).”

This place might slowly become a gateway to other great posts on the internet until I feel like producing original content again. The good news though is that the spring is here which means I have a few new items on my list that I’ll be sharing soon.

Until then, I’ll leave you with this lovely image of my new girlcrush Ana Kraš.
