I think - communicating in photos makes it sometimes easier to say more. And then sometimes, I get nervous, so then it's words.
In a photo (or in writing, or designing a dress, or making music, for that matter) you can create a character. And that particular character can be nothing like the creator her/himself or can exhibit all of the traits that are a little absurd and over the top, or maybe be so lucky as to have the characteristics the creator wished they possessed.
And that character can have no fear of putting out things that people will read/see/listen to/like/not like, because that character, of course, has it good. That's the thing with them. (they don't f'n actually exist).
So today, well tonight (I'm writing this post on Tuesday at
11 p.m. 11:41 on a little bit of red wine and a whole lot of poetry) ...
...I'm thinking about how this whole thing works.
(For me "this whole thing" is my personal creative process, for you it might be something a bit different, but ultimately we're all similar beings creating the little world in which we live directly in.) I only know how to do it one way. And you, likely, only know yours. That's ok. As long as we're open to each other's approach and the characters we each create.
So here we are. Back to this post.
This sweet little dress, which reminds me of something Stevie Nicks would wear
if gold were since gold is her color, came in the mail a few weeks ago. And the idea is that, of course I love it because it's perfect for dressed-up tailgating and my character loves that. But here's the thing. I. don't. tailgate. What I do, and do well, is drink. For games. Wherever. So, this, my friends, is my best version of a tailgate outfit.
And I feel great about the creative process around this one.
Sitting in a parking lot. Flipping my hair. Sipping football booze. Being all like "take the f'n picture!"
If you agree, and like this #OOTD check out Game Day Goddess, designed by a former Conde Nast girl, she clearly gets fashion, but also love the game. Can't get mad at that. Good business and creative thinking if you ask me.
