I’ve been blogging since foreverago when Geocities and Homestead were all the rage, and before IM-ing in AOL became ancient history. I discovered that not only do I like to write, but I enjoyed putting my thoughts up online (doing weird stuff in the code to make text fly and gifs dance around became more fun than playing with my lego set, a pretty big change for my 11-year-old self). Since my early blogging days, I’ve made a lot of blogs – a lot – all that I’ve closed down because of 1. embarrassment and 2. more embarrassment, but I still look back on fondly as a record of my past self.
So, who am I and why am I here?

I recently watched this talk by British Vogue on personal style, featuring interviewees Alexa Chung, Amanda Harlech and Lucinda Chambers. Hearing their responses to questions such as “what is chic?” and “what is personal style?” is insightful. For one, the word “chic” gets used so often to describe style and fashion, and after listening to this talk I had the realization that what many define as “chic” is usually something entirely different – when it’s more like a sub-group of people who dress, well, understated, or what is most commonly seen as French. It’s a good talk and well worth the background-noise-listen as you browse your Tumblr feed or wash the dishes.
