Freak of Fashion

I’ve been trying to detox from Facebook recently. I’ve deleted most of my apps and games on their because it was slowly consuming not only my time but my soul. Since I’ve leached out some of the poison of the Facebooks I’ve been reading more, I found a really good book recently by an author local to my area. The book is called Embers by Laura Bickle and I fell in love with it after the first page. It’s a fantasy novel about a Detroit woman named Anya Kalinczyk (weird last name btw) who arson investigator by day and a medium by night. It’s a really great story, well written, smart (which is what I always look for), and the characters are believable and relatable (though there were times that I wanted to smack the main character). My favorite character by far was a salamander spirit called Sparky. It was just so lovable as a character and it kinda reminded me of a mix between the chameleon from Tangled and if anyone remembers the movie Rescuers Down Under that giant lizard Joanna (who I always thought was really cute). If you want a quick entertaining read then pick up Embers, I’m currently searching for its sequel Sparks.

Another thing I’ve been doing to keep myself creative (besides writing of course) is making outfits on a website called polyvore. When I was younger I really wanted to be a fashion designer (shocker for a nerd right?) I love how just certain items of clothing or just the right accessory can change the whole look of a person. Polyvore gives me the freedom not to be a designer but to be a stylist and put together collages of outfits. I wouldn’t wear what I put together (I’m very low-key when it comes to my own clothes, kind of a ‘pull something on as I run out the door’ look) but my friends love it, I’ve been told I could be a professional stylist but I’m pretty sure my friends are biased. The bonus of it is I can express myself visually. I have a collection called Wearable Fiction where I make outfits inspired by stories and fictional characters. So far I have the Little Mermaid, Little Red Riding Hood, and Alice in Wonderland inspired outfits. I say inspired because it’s not dressing up exactly like the character (that would be a costume). Behold by awesome styling powers!

Let me know what you guys think

      I’m cool with that. Just remember that if you wear a skirt you have to shave your legs. It’s a rule. 🙂

        do kilts count as a skirt? because lots of men are breaking your rule. also what if i have hairy feet? do i have to shave my feet too?

        Kilts kinda count (technically) but I’m not getting into that argument…again. On a totally unrelated note people at renaissance fairs don’t take well to polite suggestions, especially ones of the male, Scottish, drunk variety. They started it! Anywho I think that because it’s considered a “man skirt” there is a loophole in the shaving rule. Also on the topic of hairy feet it depends on the shoes. 😉 you could not shave them but it would look kinda weird if you wore open toe shoes. Though you could always tell people you’re a hobbit.
