Hello sweet readers,
For a while, I've felt that my own blog didn't have quite the focus I was looking for.
I think fashion these days needs it's own equivalent of the slow food movement, a deeper concentration on the artistry and inspiration we all love, and less of a focus on fast fashion, up to the minute runway coverage, and mass consumerism. We may never go back to the days of couture and the exquisite craftsmanship that existed, but we can go to a deeper sense of appreciation for fashion, rather than buying the latest fad or oogling over the latest scandal.
I hope you will join me as I try my hand at a tumblr - one that will present a single style theme or thought over the course of a week. Rather than try to have a new shiny thing every day, I think allowing one idea to fully develop throughout the course of the week will be a better way to express what inspires me now. I also think that the new format will allow for a more interesting play of images and words together - something which I'm not sure blogger is quite able to provide yet.
I hope you will enjoy it and am interested in hearing your thoughts and feedback on this experiment in the comments or via twitter.
