The things closest to my body.

9.03.2013
Well I took these pictures because honestly I love the way that bra straps look on backs. So. SORRY BOUT IT.
But I think I want to reflect on something I have been thinking about. I like the idea of clothing as armor. I like powerful-looking, hard, angular pieces a lot.  I like rough and almost masculine lines alluding to a curvy, womanly body underneath. (That's not to say that's always the case of course. I think there is a lot of power in flowy gowns and bouncy skirts as well.) But when it comes to my underthings--the things that are closest to my body--I like really delicate, soft pieces. They are comforting and pretty and lovely. 
I want to think more about why I wear the things I do. I have always loved fashion but I feel like I have reached a point in my life where I want to think less about what is "in fashion" and more of what feels good. Incidentally, I will always suffer through some great shoes. But I mean less of what is "comfy" (if we were talking that I would be nude or in sweatpants literally ALWAYS) and more of what empowers me and feels beautiful. My body is MINE and I want to wear what makes me feel awesome.
I guess I have always though this, I just wanted to put it into writing as I think about what aesthetics I am drawn to.

  4. Beautiful pictures! I agree, you always want to have comfort! I've been thinking the same way and buying pieces that will be comfortable to wear.
