Clothing As Armor, And Other 2019 Battle Attire.
Darlings! I hope you had a fantastic weekend, and that your June is treating you well so far. The fog and cold of SF in the “summer” is settling in around me and let me tell you, I am gosh darned grateful for it, considering I appreciate my sartorial expression to feel as comfy as “pile of clothes on the laundry room floor.” Just a few things this morning:
Have you watched Fleabag yet? Because if you haven’t despite my enthusiastic request for y’all to do so (rude), you won’t understand why this The Cut piece on purchasing the title character’s jumpsuit speaks to me. But TL;DR, let’s raise a glass to clothing as armor, ladies and gents.
Today, in unknown capitalism wins: did you know skywriting was created to sell Lucky Strike cigarettes? And did you know that skywriting as an art form is in peril because not that many folks know how to do it? Read and learn: Skywriting is the only good thing the advertising business has ever done for anyone.
Haven’t read this one yet because it is behind a paywall and I let my WSJ subscription expire, but the headline alone is enough to make me scream with anxiety: Texting Moves to the Workplace, as Do the Awkward Misfires. ‘I’m Here. I Luv U.’ Eeeeeeeeeeeeek (CRINGE)
That’s it, that’s all for this morning. You’re lovely. Be kind to each other, and to yourself, mmmkay?
