It's been said....

“There's more to clothing than just adornment.

It does more than merely change

how the world perceives us.

It changes how we perceive ourselves.”
 

― Jacqueline Carey, Naamah's Kiss

 Vivienne Westwood at Paris Fall 2006

 

Since I create with my hands, I can work while I listen to audio books and podcasts. Over the last few years, I've been listening to books less and less and have become a regular Podcast Junkie.

One of my favorites is 99% Invisible by Roman Mars. To sum it up, it's pretty much all the things behind design that we don't pay a lot of attention to.

 

They just launched a six part series geared to fashion called "Articles of Interest." 

I was listening to last installment a few days ago and was struck by the coincidence that it heavily features  Vivienne Westwood, shortly after my own blog post.

Is it serendipity or just a fluke?

Either way, here's an excuse to show a little more of "my Auntie Viv."

Here's the link to Punk Style.: Articles of Interest #6

I highly recommend you listen to all six.

Since we finally have a chill in the air, I decided to focus on some of my favorites from her past Fall Collections.

(Love everything about this. At first I thought that was a fabulous boot but on closer inspection, I think it's a pump with tights.

Since my last blog, I've been on the hunt for a deep Sienna burlap.)
