Why I hate fashion | Tanya Gold | Life and style |... →
A confession – it’s been stalking me for years now, this crawling disdain for fashion; the certainty that it is not an ally but an enemy.

The wellspring of words from which she dips (to select the pearliest pearls) evaporates before her. She is a lone navigator who has lost her map and must use an internal compass to lead her back to safer, more eloquent shores: she must go with what she knows. In short, she must write...

Just got my hands on the album. Really excited to listen to it now.

The most liberating fucking thing in the world. Tonight I had a random encounter that could have turned the evening on its head, me on my heel (& straight home to bed). But instead I chose, wisely, to be blind. I chose not to see, to acknowledge, to even minorly indulge the moment. Coincidences only are something more if you allow them to be. My emotions vanished. My charisma came to the...
