I have to admit these last few years, I’ve been drawn to the simplicity of the minimal aesthetic. It’s calming, soothing, mind clearing. And yet as our world descends into political chaos – the news both gripping and downright depressing – the need to express oneself more boldly in little ways takes over…
Although I had more or less abandoned Facebook once my blogging life took over (I had to let some digital stuff go), I was surprised to see how many apps I had authorised over the years. Immediately I revoked date sharing on them when all the news came out earlier this week – and was hella glad I never took that (or any!) personality test that Cambridge Analytica exploited to such horrendous ends. But yet of course, via Instagram, I am yolked oh-too tightly.
Making a self statement on a daily basis to be free & individual and to own our autonomy. I’m not sure of the validity of the Hemline Index – hemlines went inconsistently up and down in response to a mix of factors, from needing to save on fabric to more conservative lengths post an economic crash. But I do feel that the fashion cycle and response in 2018 is pops of colour and rainbows where you might not have seen them before! Let’s keep it like that.
