Current Look: This Little Piggy Stayed Home
Now for my explanation. First, my style is significantly evolving, becoming more European and more streamlined. As a stylist, I can style any style, but personally I hadn't yet defined my own. I was still emulating others. This summer I've done a major overhaul of my closet, ridding it of things that aren't truly "me." It's a process, and I'm certainly not done, but I do think you'll notice the change.
In addition, and more importantly, I am losing one of the most significant people in my life to a progressively degenerative disease. Things have been bad for about 2 years but have become severe within the last 6-8 months. I have been spending much of my free time (ie blogging time) caring for her. Basically, this little piggy has been staying home. There's this idea in our culture of the "tortured artist," someone who can channel emotional pain into creativity. Not me. I create from joy and to me, fashion is joy. When it comes to looks and blogging, the honest truth is that I just haven't felt like it. I never stopped following your lovely blogs or the current trends. I could never stay away from style.
