Today I saw this picture by The Sartorialist that somehow completely summed up my current ideology:
I mean, I love everything about it. I love the purple/gray and aqua, I love the rainy color tone. But what I REALLY love is the marriage of function and design in her headphones.
I’m in art school right now and I haven’t picked a major. But I’ve come to realize is that what I’m passionate about is finding a way to put more beauty into the real world, not just the art world.
Makes sense, right? I mean, I’m writing a fashion blog, not a fine arts blog – that means something. Part of it is that I have more access to fashion and have a better sense of how to discuss it. But part of it is that fashion is much more democratic than fine art. It’s completely accessible, and, whatever the critics say, it really is meant to make people feel more beautiful and confident. More things in life should serve that purpose.
I know this is a super wordy post with not many pictures – sorry! But I would love to hear your opinions on this! I’ve been in both beautiful and nurturing environments and, well… high school, and it makes such a huge difference. I’ve decided I want a career that addresses beauty in public spaces, and I just want to talk about it a little. So forgive my rambling.
Oh, and this! I love this song, and I love the message. Enjoy!
