“it seems to me we can never give up longing and wishing while we are still alive. there are certain things we feel to be beautiful and good, and we must hunger for them.” // g. eliot

don’t be too quick to be fooled – mary anne evans knew of what she spoke – and called herself george so those who were prone to not take her seriously –would. and i, in turn, wouldn’t dream of taking her words lightly. so, if i were the wishing type, which i suppose i would call getting my hopes up – i’d be dropping hints all over the place so those keeping their ears to the ground wouldn’t have to guess to glean what i was longing for. it is, after all, a very valid point ms. evans made…

“fashion has always been a repetition of ideas, but what makes it new is the way you put it together.” // c. herrera

i had one of those obnoxiously clichéd moments the other night while getting dressed to go out.

there, in front me, hung my entire wardrobe – and over the course of roughly fourteen minutes, i put on, changed out of, then tried on again – three different combinations of the what invariably ended up being the exact same outfit. top, middle, bottom – all black, roughly all cut of the same proportions; the only thing that was different that night was my frame of mind. i was just having one of those stereotypically girlish – i have nothing to wear! – moments.

when all was said and done, and the emotional upheaval that had occurred passed me by, i had to laugh. because, really – no one would notice if i was an outfit repeater. no one bat an eyelash if i chose to wear the same thing from one day to the next. the reason being – everything i wear basically looks the same. the formula of my choices are uniform. the plot twist exists in how i, (and you) – choose to put those ideas together. then, repeat.

“it has long been an axiom of mine that the little things are infinitely the most important.” // a.c. doyle

a bit like stacks on stacks, i’m also a rather firm supporter of things in other things.

rather like a matryoshka, i’m keen on keeping the contents of my life in an order that descends from large to extra small. my bags are of considerable size, and yet within them you will find in declining sizes, but yet in totally chaotic states – folios, zippered pouches, snapped card-cases, and indestructible cellulose sacs that have taken on more battering than could be deemed appropriate for an accessory to bear. i’m organized to the point of being utterly muddled. i know i have everything at my disposal, i’m just not entirely sure which one of the many little carryalls holds the item i may be in search of.

i feel like this might serve as some bit of insight into my psyche.

let’s not dwell on it, let’s just continue on in my continued charm in all things you can put in much smaller things.

“in seeking truth you have to get both sides of a story.” // w. cronkite

to wax poetic for a moment, aren’t we, as people – all just rather tall tales with twofold sides?

i’d aver a few of us have a few more sides than two and within us all lies a sybil – variety is the spice of life, so the more the merrier, let’s invite all our cohorts along for the ride. it’ll be a gas.

the thing is – i’ve always felt that as hard as nails as i’d like to come across, the crepe-soled creepers and black all the way down to my sturdiest foundation garments – the skirts and dresses that i exclusively wear, give way to the truth – that i’m actually as soft as down – and it’s not even that hard to figure it out. it’s the flip of a coin, it’s jekyl and mr. hyde, it’s girlish mod on one side, and punk on the other.

it’s giambattista valli and haider ackermann.

“the details are not the details. they make the design.” // c. eames

i’m rather keen on specifics.

i find when you add the minutiae with the particulars, the equation becomes infinitely broader and yet, wholly clear.

it’s also in those less showy bits, the ones that receive less fanfare, less of the spotlight –  that when you’re leaning in close, ready to hear what they have to say, can make only a scrap of the tale become a complete tome.

not to put too fine a point on it – life is in the details… you just need to look.
