everywhere is anywhere is anything is everything

“We live our lives forward and make sense of them backwards.”

If my memory serves me correctly this was a line in the book Generation X by Douglas Coupland.

I have read a few of his books and have gone to a number of his art shows. He has a really interesting mind.

If you live in Toronto or Vancouver I recommend taking the time to see his work.

ranger floor planI was going to buy this floor plan as a Christmas gift to myself but based on the number of times the Ginger Shack has changed in my mind I think it is best to hold off. But for the moment I believe this is going to be my final home.

Politics and Fashion

This week I headed over the to Design Exchange in Toronto for their show Politics of Fashion. It was a great show and I have fallen madly in love with Rudi Gernreich’s iconic bathing suit. Stunning!  I think I need to add this to my wardrobe.

I love clothing and I love certain labels but I never wear them on the outside of my clothes. Quality yes, billboard no.

The first item of clothing I remember wearing for any political stance was in Grade 10. White t-shirt with black lettering stating, “Closets are for Clothes.”  A few years later when I came out to my parents, they were not really surprised (go figure). Its always good to dip your toe before plunging in.

I learned early on the power of clothing. On days when I felt like blending in and being invisible I dressed more like a “guy.” In my more androgynous days I could all but disappear into the crowd with my over sized outfits. Now a days, its heels and tight pants. I love the empowering feeling out of being a woman in well tailored, stylish clothing. On nights when I am in the mood to cause a little commotion wherever I go, I head out in my cats pants!
