It was ridiculous of me to think of this as something I shouldn’t consolidate. Like I have time in my life!
Anyway, this is just going to live as a pointer to short trips. It’s my real tumblr. Any fashion/aesthetics talk will be squeezed in between getting excited about science, Doctor Who, and typography.
I read this series by Miss Mighty Girl when she first published it (she has long been my hero!) and took this comment well to heart. Case in point: I’ve never been fond of pink, but in the last year or two I’ve picked up fuchsia in my wardrobe. Every time I wear the color? Positive comment.
Looking at my computer desktop, I also just noticed that InDesign’s icon color is a definite fuchsia. Maybe that’s the actual reason.
Like most girls my age, I devoured the Babysitter’s Club series when I was younger. (This was The Series before Animorphs apparently became The Series for girls like me.) Part of being in the audience for any ensemble group is picking which member you want to see yourself in. Well, of course to some degree, I was Mary Anne at the time. Shy and bookish? Hells yes. But that wasn’t My Character, as she was kind of boring and mushy, which I was not.
Despite her atrocious spelling and chickenscratch handwriting, I picked Claudia Kishi. Are you kidding? She was the one with the crazy outfits that everyone loved. She was the one that made her own jewelry. She was the go-to artist of the group.
So I’m just going to lay that out there, since I still don’t have any pictures (It’s been a strange week) and say that when I was little, I wanted to be Claudia.
You should have seen some of the outfits I attempted as a kid.
(This site is cracking me up right now.)
