classytrash 's thoughts:

There are two decisions that are always hard for me every day:
1) What do I wear?
2) What do I eat?

I’m not complaining. I’m fully aware that these are rather shallow, first-world problems. But nonetheless, they leave me running late (1) or hungry (2).

Lately I’ve been feeling so – what’s the word, oh yea – lazy. I saw someone tweet the other day a quote from Anna Dello Russo – whom I love and adore to the fullest extent fashion can allow you to love someone. She said, “If you like to be relaxed, you will never get the LOOK! Fashion is always UNCOMFORTABLE!”

I think at its core, fashion is meant to make us feel like exaggerated versions of ourselves. Let’s face it, I’m not wearing 6-inch heels on a Saturday afternoon. I’m wearing pajamas with food stains on them and eating potato chips in my bed. During the week, I want to feel as comfortable as I am on a Saturday but at least try to look better while doing it. So I throw on a jacket and some platforms and act like I’m really not as sloppy as I know that I am.

I think fashion – or getting dressed, really, because what are we talking about here? – should always be comfortable. I like being able to throw on something without thinking. And I still feel like I’m “being fashiony”.

I guess this opens the whole discussion of what “fashion” is. Some say it’s art (and I agree) but for most it’s really our childhood dress-up games manifesting themselves in adulthood. I consider Margiela art but won’t ever pass up a $12.99 pair of sweat pants from Forever 21, but both can be fashion and that’s okay.

Truth be told, most times I’m wearing leggings because I slept in them the night before and don’t feel like taking them off. Most times, my hair is a sloppy mess I slept on and didn’t brush. Most times, I walk out the door with just eyeliner and some lipstick.

I think it’s important to care about what you do and having spent the last three years working in fashion, in some form or another, I certainly must care to an extent. But most days, I really just want to wear sweat pants, and that’s okay too.

Am completely agree with you. Sometimes we have to make some sacrifice to look good but fashion can be confortable. Leggins are the best example.

well you look great, even if you were feeling lazy :P Perfecting the art of looking fashionable with the least amount of effort (i.e., the most throw-on-before-i-go-out-the-door) is art in itself! Anna Dello Russo is probably talking about the times people spend HOURS AND HOURS getting ready - doesn't happen every day for most of us. Loved your blog entry!

I so agree btw. My easy way out is just throwing on a dress every single day: so easy! you don't even have to think of a combination of a top and a bottom, and most dresses are infinitely more comfortable than jeans.
