school is over. therefore i am back and ready to blog.

a few months ago i got a notification on facebook to become a fan of this site, Style Like U. thinking it was just another (would someone please explain how all these people have these professional photos taken of themselves??), i sort of overlooked it. then i started to notice people linking different editions to their pages and was intrigued. i was totally impressed when i started to explore the site and realized that it was simply a site with a great appreciation for personal style. it's not all about fashion, trends and fads, but truly a look into someone's wardrobe and their personal attachment and love of their own individual pieces in their closet. this, to me, is what i love the most about "fashion." in fact, it's not even a love of fashion, it's an obsession with clothing and personal style. i have a truly crazy attachment to some of my clothing and the stories of how i found them, how i bargained for them, and what they have been through all contribute to the love i have for the items in my closet. on Sunday my roomies and i had a stoop sale and it was REALLY difficult to get rid of some things. despite whether i wear them or not! on the other hand, seeing them all on the pavement sort of put things into perspective for me a tad...

i was visiting the site today and saw the name Stephen Jenkins on the list of past closets. being the lead singer of Third Eye Blind, one of my fave bands, dating back to THIRD GRADE, i was super intrigued. i also thought, what an unusual contender, not being in the "fashion limelite" at all. it was super interesting hearing him talk about his clothing, and how he thinks you should buy a few amazing things and just "wear the shit out of them". not really MY perspective on shopping but perhaps i should take note! he also talks about how some of his favourite clothes are the one's that's first reactions are "are you actually wearing that?!". i love that.
