I'm All Reddy

I never, ever, thought I would blog. While I have an archive of thousands of style photos saved to my hard drive, and a box of spreads ripped from magazines dating back to 1996, I never thought I’d generate this conscious stream of fashionable thoughts for anyone to read. I guess you could say, while I dress distinctively and assertively, I am a pretty private person.    

Though I say that I love fashion- that is not to say that I think I know everything about it. To me, there is no “knowing” style- it is this infinite, intangible, innate thing that is constantly changing and evolving within all of us.  
I see in colours, shapes, structures, and textures, and that is why I like this art form so much. I do not think I am right, I do not think my tastes are superior to others’, my principles of thought are by no means laws of style, and I will never use the term fashionista to describe myself.

All I can say is that I’m All Reddy to take this on. So, welcome to Jule of the Nile (JOTN). If you have any suggestions or comments please contact me, I am interested in hearing what I can do to improve!

  3. Julia, this post was just fabulous. You are so secure in what you right and the fact that you know you are not the only fashion goddess in the world is refreshing. My friend, you are wonderful and this post is just an attestation to that. Keep up the fabulous work xxoxxo
