Friday night I went to see my friend Tavi at the Hideout for her interview with Mark Bazar's Interview Show. The Interview Show is a monthly live interview with creative Chicagoans from all walks of life. I'd never heard of the event before (I live under a rock, I swear), but obviously decided to go when I heard that Tavi would be one of the featured interviewees.
It was really inspirational to hear her talk so honestly about what fashion "means", and what it doesn't mean, and how subjective the meaning of fashion really is. For some people, style is about following trends and spending lots of money on Current Season Designer Status Objects (which is fine, if you're into that. No hate!). For others though, like Tavi, myself, some friends I've been privileged to have made in the blogger world, and some creative people I admire that don't blog, style is about expressing ones thoughts or moods or creative inspirations through outfits. Fashion, I believe, should be accessible to everyone, regardless of tastes, body types, financial status, whatever, and Tavi has really brought that idea to the forefront. It's a contribution to fashion that is sorely needed. Trufax.
Also, I have lots of new followers lately, and I suspect I know where you all are coming from! Welcome to my little corner of the interwebz. Please introduce yourself in the comments, I love getting to know my readers. Tell me your name, where you're from, and one interesting fact about yourself. And link to your blog if you'd like, I will be happy to check it out! xoxo
