More, Pt. 2

By on Nov 20, 2014 in Style Philosophy, Worn Threads | 46 comments

Today I wish to focus on an initiative now bearing personal relevance: Small Business Saturday, taking place November 29th! I know I have no power to stop your Black Friday thirst, but perhaps save an appetite & pocket of change to “shop small”? I’ve always been one for the underdog, the rebel, the wo/man against the odds. There’s never been a point in my life where I believed I did not belong within such classifications myself.     Fortunately, I’ve experienced more highs than lows when it comes to dream fulfillment. Just this Saturday during the #socialbloggers forum, I went on a tangent of days past when I went from business to business exchanging collateral with any prospects glancing in my direction. A fellow blogger & I went on to discuss the turmoil of blogging standing as professional self-representation. He feared his content may steer interested employers...

More, Pt. 1

Lately, inspiration is an effortless find. Blogging’s one spur of the moment adventure after the next. I don’t worry too much of content-building. Ryan’s captures have yet to fail at facilitating word flow. Such a misguided process tends to be quite pressing for some; yet as for myself, the curious wanderer, no direction has always been ideal. Funny, since I’m overly-dedicated when it comes to prepping & planning all else.     I’ve been working on stress management, time management, life management, the whole nine yards. Days begin with light stretching, warm tea, & meditation in the form of fashion show viewings (via YouTube synced to my SmartTV… lol, mostly Fatale Fashion III).     My fondness of chic illustrations & constructions have increased–& you all may be well aware of my obsession with haute couture...

The Great Pumpkin, Pt. 2

By on Oct 23, 2014 in Style Philosophy, Worn Threads | 83 comments

Today all I see is now. The nonsense has faded to the background. Scorpious reigns. Although, I do not exactly agree with all that is said of the eighth astrological sign in the Zodiac, I do believe its spirit causes me to prosper.     “Scorpios are fiercely independent. They are able to accomplish anything they put their mind to and they won’t give up. They are perfectly suited to being on their own. They are not social butterflies like some other zodiac signs and some actually prefer to live on their own that way there is never any issue of who controls what at home, they like to be in control.” –Zodiac Signs Astrology     At this moment, I’m ignoring the day’s horoscope (something to do with passivity, eh). My upmost concern is keeping the spirit of the season alive, & what better setting than The Great Pumpkin Patch? Even though this shoot was...

The Great Pumpkin, Pt. 1

October exists as the height of my year. From the chill of winter to the sweat of summer & back, I’m extensively curious to find what fearsome fascinations lie ahead. I live for the mystery, the magic, the masquerades. All in all, the month signifies another year of life, a birth date.     The deeper I delve into the realms of adulthood, the more & more mixed my feelings become. I find myself jealous of adolescents. I want to warn them, convince them to not be willing to mature so quickly. Their thoughts of adulthood are skewed; they know nothing of it. They know not of the short-lived freedoms never truly lining up to idealized expectations. They know not of immunity from one authority surrendering to the next. They know not of the loose ties, the passer-bys.     Twenty-five is one of those ages where you’d think you’d have it halfway together. One’s...

Blogger-versary, Year 1 (Pt. 2)

By on Oct 16, 2014 in Style Philosophy, Worn Threads | 88 comments

Prior to my Blogger-versay, I never recognized the co-dependent relationship Mac & I shared. We were joined at the lap. Nearly 16+ hours of my days were spent in front of a computer screen since my 9-to-5 also required extensive pc use. Finally forced to lift my head up to life, I did not have a clue what to do with myself. Convinced I would miraculously cure the device on my own, I instantly began arranging my temporary fixes via social media. I downloaded WordPress, Tumblr, Lookbook, Facebook, etc. I was sure I could do it all through my mobile device.     I quickly resented the small screen along with the dubious format limitations. It all peeved me. My phone was happily married to Instagram and enjoyed an occasional love affair with Twitter. Adding all of these other muses to the mix only bred chaos. Soon after, I attempted to rob Ryan of his tablet; a short-lived...

Blogger-versary, Year 1!

By on Oct 14, 2014 in Style Philosophy, Worn Threads | 32 comments

September marked the one year Blogger-versay of Connect-the-Cloths! Filled with imagination & excitement, I wanted to make a big fuss of the occasion. A giveaway, another link party… ? I wasn’t too sure, yet I knew nothing I planned would grant this prized possession the acclaim it deserves. I promised myself I would no longer be a lazy, procrastinating blogger & dabbled with the thought of creating a concrete contract detailing a once a week blogging frequency commitment. Then… life happened.     As always, some minor catastrophe ruined all of my hopes & dreams. Less than 24 hours before I planned to publish, Ryan was finishing up the edits of our two most recent photoshoots. The captures were divine, like nothing we’ve ever done before. Suddenly, our editing software froze. Without a thought, we performed a safe reboot, & my mac decided it was no longer...

Scribbled in Pastel & Neon… Pt. 2

By on Aug 29, 2014 in Style Philosophy, Worn Threads | 129 comments

I wore a cocktail dress scribbled in pastel & neon. There was no occasion necessary. Well, modestly, you… & a yearning for an excess of the expiring season.     My fingers danced in glistening midi-rings simply because they’re pretty. My ears, spoiled in gold & diamonds gifted from my lovely Mum! {Appreciated!} I sported my second set of Aldo’s Project Runway collection on my wrists. The two-tone bracelets saved me the headache of a metallic ultimatum, perfect for an indecisive fashion citizen like myself. Betsey Johnson shaded my eyes from the rays. Keds + Penny loves Kenny adorned my feet.     In Tourist of the Town Pt. 1 & 2, I asked you all what you would like to see. I often bore of the Las Vegas lights and sights, yet I recognize several of you may never journey to my piece of my world. Never expecting a response, a handful of...

Scribbled in Pastel & Neon… Pt. 1

By on Aug 27, 2014 in Style Philosophy, Worn Threads | 34 comments

All season I’ve been daydreaming of an escape, a one way route out of the monotony. Yet, the hours raced… minutes, seconds… mid-afternoon would pass–& I, unsatisfied with the day’s accomplishments, would wonder how I could lose myself in a maze of such alluring thoughts.     Wound up in my yearnings, I drifted away from the present. Always looking ahead, I took for granted everyday treasures. Like the z o m b i e yard spinner motionlessly wrestling the wind, I exerted energy, yet remained stagnant. Why?     In this seemingly idle state, I delved into a realm of actualization. I began to question, not just others, but myself. What more can be done? What is realistic? The days advance… weeks, months. Evenings would progress–& I, questioning, analyzing, overthinking… Over a decade has passed, have I not been...
