morgsmorgan 's thoughts:

I like to put outfits together. When I stay home I usually am working on etsy anyway and messin a bit on chictopia. So, I guess I cant really stay home without being inspired to throw something together as I work on updating etsy and chictopia! Anyhow this photo is from the other day when I was working on ideas for photo shoots to showcase our clothes in the best light and still get to be artistic about it. It’s really hard to come to that healthy medium. I’d prefer to get a proper model sometimes or have a friend do it just because it is a really vulnerable situation you put yourself in when you put yourself up here. I guess for me it is because, I hate puting myself in the position to be critizied and judged by others, ultimately chictopia is an extremely positive community and I absolutely love that about it. However, it’s still hard to disassosiate yourself from your ideas especially when you’re the one in the photo. I guess I just dont like my person to be the center of attention but I love showing my ideas and artistic perspectives.

On a completely different note, I’ve been (seeing as I’m obssessed with this concept) reading alot on and researching beauty. There is this fantastic video on TED of a professor and his theory of beauty that has really cleared a bit of things up. He talks about art and beauty as if they were an instinct; our ultimate instinct, sort of the instict that is the selector of natural selection. His thought as labled on TED is, “A Darwinian Theory of Beauty.” I think anyone interested in beauty and/or aethetics should give this a view. I still have the lingering question in my mind though; ultimately how do we (subcontiously) come to the conclusion that such and shuch is hereditaily most desirable and/or most important or should be a gene to continue on with the human race? I understand that in the past hieght and build were important because the taller and bigger a person was the more likely to survive a run in with a wild animal they were. I guess maybe my real question is what are the traits now that are really ultimately desirable and why? What do we need to survive in this day and age? It seems like I could think of alot of things that are honestly so far from what was important previously. Whats funny to be about our existence is that we always seem to think we’re in control, but we’re just in an oscilation of reaction upon reaction without any real control except choice. This is so apparent in fashion; we’re always on to the next thing. Im not sure exactly how I feel about it all…. shoot me your thoughts if you actually read this! :)

i agree, on an evolutionary perspective, do we really need our hair to be dyed and have whiter teeth? we really don't need these extra factors if we are relying them for survival. however, in order to keep up with technology and the rest of the world, we continue to evolve, evolve, evolve no matter what! : ). great post! btw, do you have that link? please pm me if you do! fav'd!

I'll send you the link for sure! It's a great video! it'll will give you a simple and yet very interesting take on things...I don't know I've always sort of saw things from his perspective I guess just not articulated as well as he did. I want his book so bad.
