I came across Objects Without Meaning through my sister's friend, Claire, who works for the brand and showcased the label on her Instagram feed. She's a big inspiration when it comes to fashion, and plants, and home decor (and her sass and out-goingness). I love the way she and our mutual friend Jess dress-- that sometimes shapeless, other times structured, but ALWAYS put-together look. The problem is that I feel like I can't pull it off. My shoulders are too broad, my torso too wide and short. But really, the thing of it is, is that I just need the confidence to wear them. I'm more adventurous than most of my other friends, I know, but in terms of where I want to be personally, I need to just go for it. At the same time, I need to balance that out with what works best for my body type. I feel like Objects Without Meaning is a perfect example of that balance.
The designer Alexandra Michelle creates clothes for girls who have the confidence to wear what they want, according to an article in Vogue. This particular lookbook for their AW 14 collection happens to meld fashion and my number one love, writing, together. The lookbook features one of my artistic idols Miranda July posing in beautifully crafted clothes (some with prints designed by her husband Mike Mills), and dancing around with moves reminiscent of the unforgettable t-shirt dance in her film The Future.
I'm in love with the fitted boyjeans (I need to snag myself a pair soon) and all the chunky knits for fall. Can't wait to see more!
