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!
