What I Wore: Relevance Edition
In one of my latest futile exercises in modern fashion relevance…*ahem*…I went to the Project Ethos event at the Avalon in Hollywood earlier this week. Predictably, I did not bring a camera. I was sad, too, because there was a lot there worth documenting: great collections were shown, art was being created, Michael Costello didn’t inspire me to choke-slam him the way he did on television, and I actually dressed up for the occasion. Because the end-of-the-night instagram of my shoes isn’t really cutting it as an outfit post, here is what I wore:
Kain pocket tank
Alexander Wang shorts
Jean-Michel Cazabat shoes
I was hoping to have a good time watching both new talent and Project Runway alumni display their handiwork, not have my feet feel shredded by night’s end, and avoid the usual crowd of pretentious douches that litter Hollywood night clubs.
Two out of these three were accomplished.
In my other futile exercise in modern fashion relevance, I played the role of guest blogger for Shoptiques. Click to check out my summertime clothing picks that I have no intention of buying!..unless they go on super-sale…naturally.
After this week, I realized that I’m not cut out for this popular, seemelovemedome shit. In my nearly four years of blogging, I feel quite content in my voluntary vainglorious bubble of snark and triviality, shooting the breeze with you guys and dreaming of days when I can afford all the stuff that I want and love and wear at full price. All of this *extra stuff* is just not doing it for me. Maybe it’s because I’m running on fumes most of the time (that #MOMLIFE no sleep struggle is REAL)…or because I’d really rather be at home nomming my kid’s cheeks than running the streets with the other peacocks…or because nowadays, what’s “popular” is the antithesis of everything blogging was supposed to be about…
Eh. I’m rambling. What’chall doin’ this weeekend?
