So, I graduated University and got a new sweater. These two life events do not necessarily have anything to do with each other, but when I saw this Johnny Rotten Miu Miu knitted wonder on Jayne's SHOP IT RIGHT NOW blog, I knew it had to be mine. Ever since Rodarte's F/W 2008 collection, I've been in love with loose, spiderweb knit garments - so much that I've even knit two of my own! One blue and one pink. Johnny Rotten is a fashion icon, don't you forget it. I've also been wearing these brown schoolgirl low-top Doc Martens almost every day because they're so ugly and utilitarian, which is really suiting my style right now.
In terms of finishing University, I had to write an undergraduate thesis and mine was called "The Nature of Alexander McQueen: The Aesthetics of Fashion Design as a Site of Environmental Change." If you would like to read it, you can download a copy of it on the University of Waterloo website, but I will warn you that it is 40 pages long so you might not want to. To combat over-academic-ness, I plan on self-publishing a zine this summer called "The Alexander McQueen Zine" which will included a condensed version of my thesis as well as more essays on feminism in McQueen's work.
Pit hair, don't care.
