my style blog list.

after browsing several blogs i noted the following cannots worthy of listing.

1. i cannot list outfits from last year because the ones pictured here are not representative in any way. a worthless bunch as a gallery of style evolvement or cohesion. i do not think i've evolved anyways.

2. i cannot list any resolutions for the new year since i have none.

3. i cannot list any sale items i yearn for or got because i have not checked out or shopped any sales. none. zip.

4. i cannot list any ideas about next spring since i have not browsed one single fashion magazine, show or website (outside of blogs where people seem to be already all about organza...) and do not feel like the freezing weather gives any reason to ponder spring. generally, i do not plan ahead to spring but just accept it as it comes, dressed as i happen to be. finding a new look for spring is a totally foreign idea to me.

5. i cannot list any style aspirations since currently my biggest concern is whether i should shave my head today or tomorrow. prolly tomorrow.

instead i'll post a song i've been listening to a lot lately by marina and the diamonds.

haha, who cares about representativeness! Actually I'm afraid that my "representative" image collection would contain a bunch of images of crappy sweater pants and cashmere sweaters that have seen their best days (my typical at-home outfit :-)).

About evolution... ...I feel that I change, but I'm slightly hesitant about that element of progress - I feel that it is tied to concept "evolution" somehow. Of course I'm changing, all the time.

What about Project Chanel? How is it going? My aim for this week is 3 times at gym. Should be fulfilled relatively easily I haven't been too harsh on me at the beginning. I aim for exercise sessions every other day on for the starters - but gradually to four day cycles with 3 day exercise, one rest.

Ihana lista, komppaan hyvin monen kohdan kanssa! :D Varsinkin 4 ja 5 jotka sivuavat yleisesti sellaista ajan tasalla pysymistä. Kyllä muotilehdet (tai lehdet yleisemmin, tai yleinen maailmanmenon seuraaminen )ym kiinnostavat itseäni, jos sitä vain olisi useammin aikaa/kiinnostusta ottaa se lehti käteen/surffailla netissä vähän syvemmälle kuin yleensä. Mutta kun ei tunnu olevan! Ja jotenkin se loppumaton informaatiotulva alkaa vaan ahdistaa , ja harmittaa kun olen niin sivistymätön yleisesti ottaen kaikesta. (Sitten tullaankin jo ehkä ihan omiin pään sisäisiin ongelmiin, että tähän on hyvä lopettaa.)

ps. hauska biisi!

kamicha, i don't actually. just listed my thoughts after browsing manymanymany blogs where "my style of 2009" or "my style evolution" were major topics. here they weren't and will not be...

and yup, evolution does imply progress. if i have understood correctly many bloggers seek to evolve with their own style and use their blogs as a medium for portraying and analyzing it. sugar kane's is explicitly one of them. naturally, 'progress' can be defined as the blogger wishes. again, i don't wish to evolve or consider my style a project of any kind, therefore none of that here, either. change, however, definitely.

project chanel is well on its way. your plan sounds good – did you come up with your grail already? i aim for three visits a week, as well. i'll keep you updated on it, for sure...

varpu, mä olen todella huono seuraamaan muotia lehdistä tai muualtakaan. selaamista kyllä joskus harrastan, jos muotilehti jostain tippuu käsiini, mutta aktiivisesti en osaa. sen sijaan mä koitan seurata kaikkea muuta – vaikka huomaan jumittavani tylsästi samoilla sivustoilla päivästä toiseen.

mutta tuo fiilis yleisestä sivistymättömyydestä... komppaan. mulla on aina sama olo, riittämätön siinä suhteessa. ja oma pää syynä tietysti.

"if i have understood correctly many bloggers seek to evolve with their own style and use their blogs as a medium for portraying and analyzing it. sugar kane's is explicitly one of them."

Well, dearie, I beg to differ! I do analyze my style and "stylistic aspirations" but I do not seek "progress" or even evolving. It may seem different for the audience, but for me, blogging is more about keeping a notebook of what I like. I tend to forget things and even a sense of my visual self otherwise...

Some people comment on my "getting better" style-wise - I don't see it that way, and I'm really not even that interested in, or believe in, any progress...

stellagee said...

sugar kane, well, i must have misunderstood you then. i just recall you stating more than once that your reason for starting the blog was finding your "style self" and that through analysis and experimentation you have gotten closer to your goal... nonetheless, i understand if you hesitate calling it progress, but i did not mean progress or evolution in an ominous manner.

as far as others stating that you've got better, i do not understand it. for a personal project, personal evaluation, and i quite honestly do not understand what getting better style-wise even means...

Stellagee, I guess you've got it right, it's just the talk of progress pisses me off... (As does most of blog-commentary nowadays, maybe I should just take a break.) In my best Edie Beale drawl: Aaaah don't like the idea of progress, I'd rather get things wrong than dress with Good Taste TM.

I think with my blog, it's more about RE-finding my style: I've always had a strong sense of what's ME, but not so strong ability to put it in outfits.

Blah blah blah.

sk, i can appreciate how progress might feel, well, just wrong. but as a description of self-prescribed goal-seeking, it still works, i think.

i guess i do not associate the concept of progress with accepted norms, unlike (perhaps?) those who comment your style "becoming better". accepted norms often piss me off, as might be clear from here as well. i try to use different terminology but concepts carry a weight regardless of my best efforts, i guess...

as a more general note, i did not write this list as a critique of those who do things i cannot do, but i now realize it can and probably has been read that way. i apologize since it was just a list of observation without normative content.
