This is my first entry in which I show you all a side of me I shudder to even think about displaying on this website. But you know what? You’ve seen my crazy. You’ve seen my giddy. You’ve seen anger, humor, intellect… but you haven’t seen me in my true form. That is the fourth side of my Style Square Definition I told you about in an earlier post: House-bound slob.
Yeah, that’s right. I only dress for work on a regular basis–whatever you see here on the blog is the very seldom going out shots, but everything else is for the office. As soon as I get home, I put on slippers, sweatpants (or leggings), a tank and a comfortable cardigan.
This wrap cardigan is a cashmere and regular wool blend, so it’s really soft and has a lived in feel I absolutely adore. In addition, it actually is lived in. I’ve had it for, like close to four years now, and when it grew holes, I mended them. It’s been washed tons of times, and it’s probably my most worn item in my closet, to be honest.
Are you surprised? My most worn piece of clothing is not a prized power item I’ve spoken about numerous times, or a special statement piece. It’s a love-worn, very, very lived in, not entirely stylish sweater. Oh well. You had to get to know the real me eventually–the one who, when she farts, laughs hysterically, thinks playing Role Playing Game style videogames on her iPhone or PS2, watches an unhealthy amount of sci-fi TV, and can relate to the kids on The Big Bang Theory (sans the Theoretical Physicist genius aspect). You’ve seen my past (here, hurr and here), you might as well see Behind Closed Doors.
Yeah, it’s about time.
Join the Pajama Project, too, if you feel being real is pretty awesome.
PS. Some of my outfit photography from 2011 was streamed live at a fashion event this weekend in The Bay Area with the help of La La Valentine. Second feature! Yeay!!
