Trying to get inspiration for my wardrobe is proving hard with no events going on. Dressing up with nowhere to go has proven soul-destroying from the start. The thought of going to a pub is not enthralling me and outdoor events with no loos sound like a living hell! Life is far from normal but we are all desperate for human contact. Going out still looks dangerous for many of us. I have been buying clothes with nowhere to go for 3 months.
I am not sure what fashion is doing at the moment. By that I mean, is there anything in fashion. What is en vogue exactly?
I have started looking at vintage collections for reassurance, Alexander McQueen, Moschino and Vivienne Westwood mostly. In fact, I am even buying their vintage items. I assume not much is being made by the big houses and the production machine has been at a standstill for a few months. Did we miss a season? More to the point, not going out means I have no sense of the fashionista currency. That drama of yearning to look good, as good as who you saw, is nonexistent. I miss that greatly today.
Being a fashionista in a bubble is, I would say, nigh on impossible.
