Another experiment in layering a bandage dress over something with sleeves.
I read this article yesterday, which is largely about asking why in the context of fashion blogs and personal style choices. It got me thinking about why I do ‘outfit blogging’. It’s hard to avoid self-commodification, I suppose. But the two main reasons I can come up with are keeping a record for myself and so someone else (the internet) sees what I’m wearing. The latter reason is a function of my current solitary postgraduate lifestyle. The social sciences can be very antisocial.
I tend to think fairly deeply about why & how I buy the clothes that I do, less so about why I wear particular outfits on any given day. And I often fail to adequately recognise the privilege I get from from being white and thin.
