Hush n Wonder

fashion, food, and all things fabulous

I started thinking about relationships today. And I came to the conclusion that the most unhealthy relationship in my life is the love/hate, slightly obsessive, and all consuming fascination I have with clothes. I think about fashion all the time. And it’s not just, I want this pair of shoes, or I could use this trench coat… I create these fashion-filled fantasies. I see a dress, and I immediately think where I’d be able to wear it. I picture how perfectly it would go with this pair of heels I have, and how it would be what I have to wear while boating on a summer’s evening (yes, my little mind takes it that far.) The worst is when I see something truly amazing that’s totally out of my price range. This happens a lot (enter the love/hate part of my rapport with clothes.) When I know there’s no way I’d ever be able to afford whatever it is I’m crushing on, it really gets ugly. I get this feeling in the pit of my stomach — it’s the same feeling you get when you find out your crush has a girlfriend — and it makes me think about the object of my desire even more. Perhaps it’s like the old saying goes, “You always want what you can’t have.” *Sigh.* The latest unatainable gem I have found is a gorgeous little 3.1 Phillip Lim sweater I could see myself wearing a hundred of different ways, to hundreds of different places. I love the rich greige color, the delicate cream chiffon ruffle sleeves, the longer length of it, how the chiffon is also around the neck…. Ahhh! It’s perfection. This love sick feeling I have has lasted a couple months now. All there’s left to do is to try and recreate. Times like this I really wish I could sew.
