Playing dress ups

Loving this blog right now Dress, Memory by Lorelai Vashti. A freelance writer and editor living in Melbourne, Lorelai started this project as a way to record her favourite dresses and the memories associated with them.

She writes so elegantly and honestly about her life, the experiences and the often painful memories that accompany these dresses and these moments in time. People often tell you their incredibly personal stories on the internet and sometimes there is nothing worse, nothing more excruciating than reading about the life of someone you care nothing about. But sometimes, when executed correctly and in such a simple and beautifully written narrative there is nothing better. Personal stories become universal stories and a connection is made. This blog has such a simple idea, but I really dig it.

Anyway, enough. Go read it for yourself and see if you agree or disagree with me.
