The month of gardening, remembering to shave your legs and paint your toes, and the MET GALA.
Ohhh yes my friends, even though I don’t take “fashion” seriously, and I believe that it is in large part responsible for the giant machine of consumerism which i’m trying to slow (in my own small way!), I still have an appreciation for beautiful things.
The Met Gala is the epitome of art as fashion (or fashion as art, however you’d like to see it), and I LOVE seeing what the designers come up with for this special occasion. I don’t know if it’s the exclusivity of the event, the thematic sense of occasion, or simply the incredible exhibit that follows, but I am definitely one to get caught up in the glamour of this annual fashion event. (If you’re interested in the Met Gala, I would highly recommend watching The First Monday in May)
To be completely honest, this is something that I struggle with and have tried to accept over time. Can someone have a genuine love for aesthetics and fashion while maintaining a well-edited and curated closet? I think yes. Although it is hard, I do think you can be a conscious consumer and appreciate the art and beauty that is fashion without having to shop and indulge in it all the time.
While I'm not perfect, I’ve learned that there is beauty and a sense of fulfillment in appreciating the existence of something without having to own it.
