‘Interesting’ is a word I use a lot.

Posted on by tim in About, Fundamentals | Leave a comment

“It is not enough to conquer. One must know how to seduce.” –Voltaire I use the word ’interesting’ quite a bit. Often people seem to think there’s an underpinning of some kind of sarcasm or irony attached. There is not. I mean interesting in exactly the way it’s defined in the dictionary. For instance, to me this fish is interesting. Fashion, I’ve come to understand, is also interesting. I mean fashion in its broadest and most encompassing sense. I don’t mean …

Since last  fall I’ve been taking stock of my wardrobe to try to figure out what I’ll need to get through the year. New winter boots, parka and Wellies were purchased to wear with the MEC snow-pants I’ve had since high school (for those of you counting, that’s 1990). Sure they’re teal and ride up to my bra-line, but damn if they aren’t the warmest pants I’ve ever owned. They’ll have to rot off my legs before I even think …

When we bought our house one of the things I was most excited about was finally having my own garden.

Can’t wait for the first shoot this Thursday!  We will film what will most certainly be the mammoth task of me going through my wardrobe to see what I have to get me through the next year shopping-free.

Posted on by di in Listen, Watch | Leave a comment

George Michael’s video for his song ‘Freedom 90′ features supermodels lip-synching to his lyrics while symbols of his past career( guitar, jukebox, leather jacket ) are demolished. This sexy vid was directed by one of our favorite directors, David Fincher who went on to helm such films as ‘Se7en’, ‘Fight Club’, ‘Zodiac’ and ‘Social Network’.

I wonder which fashions from this era are dangerous and we don’t even know it yet. My money is on Hammer pants. They were bad enough the first time around, calling them ‘harem pants’  now doesn’t make it better. Popular Fashion Trends That Killed People
