I'm about to dispel that myth. :D
Okay, there may have been a small stretch in late high school/college when I put some effort into what I wore but otherwise, it just hasn't been a priority for me. My Fondy friends can attest for me that most days, unless I have a show or exhibit to attend, I'm wearing a plain t-shirt and jeans. Around here, you can get away with this look just about everywhere, which is so nice. No one expects you to dress up at any time, except "life events" like weddings. The only reason I have any nice clothes at all is because my friend Tracy owns a clothing boutique called Lillians. It's where I get all of my "I'm leaving the house" clothes. :D
The weird thing is, I've always been really good at dating styles! Even as a kid I could tell you the year of an illustration or photo just by the clothes and/or hairstyle. I know the definitions of a "cloche", a "pencil skirt", a "chemise", and "worsted weight". I just never made the connection between fashion and me. Also, I would MUCH rather spend my money on art supplies, ephemera, or things around the house than for dressing this bod. :D
"rummage sale" we attended a couple weeks back.
By the way, I was the first person to crack open this book - what a coup for me! :D
I haven't done much with fashion in my collages, but what I have done is, of course, vintage. :D
