So, you know when mothers and fathers-to-be
start decorating and situating their future baby's
room? Well that is referred to as "nesting."
(Thank you Juno for that piece of information)
They are essentially creating a world for their baby.
Well I do the same thing with my life in relation to fashion and events.
As you know I love creating scenarios in my head
about places I would go and things I would do and what the
ambiance would be like and most importantly
what I would be wearing.
Now usually these scenarios get started when
I find an article of clothing that I would like to purchase.
The question is never "is this practical" but rather what
storyline can I create within
30 seconds to make me want to buy this piece.
That is my version of nesting.
This is also a huge problem that I have.
In theory I am about to "birth" a memorable event
with every purchased piece of apparel.
I buy something with the intentions of wearing
to an extremely specific outing and/or everyday event.
Doesn't matter if this event actually exists or not.
That piece then lives in my
closet until I can successfully live out my picture perfect
affair that I created in my head.
And then when it happens.. I document the shit out of it.
This whole theory makes sense in my head..
.. sorry if it's not translating.
Halston Heritage Metallic Lame-Knit Top
When I found this pretty little lady the other day
I think my eyes grew about 1/2" in diameter.
I would wear her to a party during Fashion Week.
Very demure... with a deep wine lip,
my gold/bordeaux Chanel cocktail ring, my gold polish,
a black pair of pleated tapered pants and my
rouge YSL pumps. My hair half up half down loosely pulled back.
Isn't she pretty?
I have issues.
