i contemplate the day we wed, your clothes are boring me to death.

the look above me is very simple, no? perhaps boring?
boring, simple, uncreative or whatever you may call it, i lust for the look. not just that look in particular, but the whole simple look in general. i went shopping today and i came home and now i plan on returning all the things i bought, except the calvin klein undies and a dior show mascara. for a second i thought i lost my interest in clothes. i'm in a pretty frustrating situation right now because i can't seem to find anything that i want to wear. yes, the clothes i saw at the mall today are appealing but i don't want to wear them- weird huh? anyone ever been in this kind of situation also? a simple loose fitting white top paired off with a nice pair of black skinnies (perhaps in leather) sound really appealing to me right now and i know most people are probabaly thinking- 'how boringggg'. maybe this is some kind of a "fashion block" as in like the "writer's block"

four looks from sping07 and fall07 collection of calvin klein
on to my new bikini obsession- calvin klein. the acidic colors used in this swimsuit seem like they've rusted or something- i loveee it.

You have a riveting web log
and undoubtedly must have
atypical & quiescent potential
for your intended readership.
May I suggest that you do
everything in your power to
honor your encyclopedic/omniscient
Designer/Architect as well
as your revering audience.
As soon as we acknowledge
this Supreme Designer/Architect,
Who has erected the beauteous
fabric of the universe, our minds
must necessarily be ravished with
wonder at His infinite goodness,
wisdom and power.

Please remember to never
restrict anyone's opportunities
for ascertaining uninterrupted
existence for their quintessence.

There is a time for everything,
a season for every activity
under heaven. A time to be
born and a time to die. A
time to plant and a time to
harvest. A time to kill and
a time to heal. A time to
tear down and a time to
rebuild. A time to cry and
a time to laugh. A time to
grieve and a time to dance.
A time to scatter stones
and a time to gather stones.
A time to embrace and a
time to turn away. A time to
search and a time to lose.
A time to keep and a time to
throw away. A time to tear
and a time to mend. A time
to be quiet and a time to
speak up. A time to love
and a time to hate. A time
for war and a time for peace.

Here's what remarkable men
have asseverated about the
world's bestseller:

"I believe the Bible is the best gift
God has ever given to man. All
the good from the Savior of the
world is communicated to us
through this book."
-- President Abraham Lincoln

"For we must consider that we shall
be as a City upon a hill. The eyes of
all people are upon us. So that if we
shall deal falsely with our God in this
work we have undertaken, and so
cause Him to withdraw his present
help from us, we shall be made a
story and a byword throughout the
world." --John Winthrop, Governor
of the Massachusetts Bay Colony, 1630

"It is impossible to rightly govern the
world without God and the Bible."
- President George Washington

"The Bible is no mere book, but a Living
Creature, with a power that conquers
all that oppose it." - Napoleon

"That Book accounts for the supremacy
of England." - Queen Victoria

"If there is anything in my thought or
style to commend, the credit is due my
parents for instilling in me an early
love of the Scriptures. If we abide by
the principals taught in the Bible, our
country will go on prospering and to
prosper; but if we and our posterity
neglect its instructions and authority,
no man can tell how sudden a
catastrophe may overwhelm us and
bury all our glory in profound obscurity."
- Daniel Webster (Founding Father)

"The Bible is worth all other books which
have ever been printed." - Patrick Henry
(original member of the Continental Congress)

"The Bible is the anchor of our liberties."
- President U.S. Grant

"It is impossible to enslave mentally or socially
a Bible-reading people. The principals of the
Bible are the groundwork of human freedom."
- Horace Greeley (Editor)

"That Book is the rock on which our Republic
rests." - President Andrew Jackson

"In all my perplexities and distresses, the Bible
has never failed to give me light and strength."
- Gen. Robert E. Lee

"Bible reading is an education in itself."
- Lord Tennyson (Poet)

"So great is my veneration for the Bible that the
earlier my children begin to read it the more
confident will be my hope that they will prove
useful citizens of their country and respectable
members of society. I have for many years made
it a practice to read through the Bible once
every year." - President John Quincy Adams

"The existence of the Bible, as a Book for the
people, is the greatest benefit which the human
race has ever experienced. Every attempt to
belittle it is a crime against humanity."
- Immanuel Kant (Philosopher)

"The New Testament is the very best Book that
ever or ever will be known in the world."
- Charles Dickens (Author)

"All human discoveries seem to be made only
for the purpose of confirming more and more
strongly the truths contained in the Sacred
Scriptures." - Sir William Herschel (Astronomer)

"There are more sure marks of authenticity
in the Bible than in any profane history."
- Sir Isaac Newton (Scientist)

"Let mental culture go on advancing,
let the natural sciences progress in
even greater extent and depth, and
the human mind widen itself as much
as it desires; beyond the elevation
and moral culture of Christianity, as
it shines forth in the Gospels, it will
not go." - Goethe (Author)

"I have known ninety-five of the world's
great men in my time, and of these eight-
seven were followers of the Bible. The
Bible is stamped with a Specialty of Origin,
and an immeasurable distance separates
it from all competitors."
- W.E. Gladstone (Prime Minister)

"Whatever merit there is in anything that
I have written is simply due to the fact that
when I was a child my mother daily read
me a part of the Bible and daily made me
learn a part of it by heart." - John Ruskin
(art critic and social commentator)

"The Bible has been the Magna Charta of the
poor and oppressed. The human race is not
in a position to dispense with it." - Thomas
Huxley (Author & Scientist)

"The whole hope of human progress is
suspended on the ever growing influence
of the Bible." - W.H. Seward (Secretary of State)

"America was born a Christian nation. America
was born to exemplify that devotion to the
elements of righteousness, which are derived
from the revelations of Holy Scriptures. Part
of the destiny of Americans lies in their daily
perusal of this great book of revelations.
That if they would see America free and
pure they will make their own spirits free
and pure by this baptism of the Holy Spirit."
--President Woodrow Wilson

For Christians, the life and death of Jesus
are the ultimate expressions of love, and
the supreme demonstrations of God's
mercy, faithfulness, and redemption.
Since Christ's miraculous Resurrection
on Easter, more than 2,000 years ago,
Christians have expressed joy and
gratitude for this wondrous sacrifice
and for God's promise of freedom for
the oppressed, healing for the broken -
hearted, and salvation. --President
George W. Bush

"It cannot be emphasized too strongly
or too often that this great nation was
founded, not by religionists, but by
Christians; not on religions, but on
the gospel of Jesus Christ. For this
very reason peoples of other faiths
have been afforded asylum, prosperity,
and freedom of worship here."
--Patrick Henry (original member
of the Continental Congress)

God designed humans to want to
believe in something. That's the
image of God that is in us. But as
G. K. Chesterton famously put it,
when we reject the God of the
Bible, we don't believe in nothing;
we believe in everything -- including
Little Green Men. - - Chuck Colson

I am trying here to prevent anyone from
saying the really foolish thing that people
often say about Jesus Christ: "I'm ready
to accept Jesus as a great moral teacher,
but I don't accept His claim to be God."

That is the one thing we must not say.
A man who was merely a man and said
the sort of things Jesus said would not be
a great moral teacher. He would either be
a lunatic -- on a level with a man who says
he is a poached egg -- or else he would be
the Devil of Hell.

You must make your choice. Either this Man
was, and is, the Son of God, or else a madman
or something worse .... You can shut Him up
for fool, you can spit at Him and kill Him as a
demon; or you can fall at His feet and call Him
Lord and God. But let us not come up with any
patronizing nonsense about His being a great
human teacher. He has not left that option
open to us. He did not intend to. -- From
Case for Christianity, by C.S. Lewis

"Let every student be plainly instructed and
earnestly pressed to consider well the main
end of his life and studies is to know God
and Jesus Christ which is eternal life (John
17:3)." - - - The Laws and Statutes of
Harvard College in 1643

"All scholars shall live religious, godly,
and blameless lives according to the rules
of God's Word, diligently reading the Holy
Scriptures, the fountain of light and truth;
and constantly attend upon all the duties
of religion, both in public and secret."
- - - Two central requirements in Yale
College 1745 charter

If you stop believing what your professor
told you had to be true and if you start
thinking for yourself you may come to some
conclusions you hadn't expected. You may
find the Bible makes more sense than you
thought or were told to think. Allow yourself
to be ruined, ruined with regard to what you
always thought could be true. Can you believe
what you don't understand? You and I believe
everyday what we don't understand unless it
comes to the issue of salvation.
- - - Dr. Woodrow Kroll

There is simply no historic foundation for the
position that the Framers intended to build the
'wall of separation' that was constitutionalized
in Everson. The 'wall of separation between
church and state' is a metaphor based on bad
history, a metaphor which has proved useless
as a guide to judging. It should be frankly and
explicitly abandoned. - - - Chief Justice of
the US Supreme Court, William Rehnquist

In 1796 the US Supreme Court issued this
ruling, "By our form of government, the
Christian religion is the established religion,
and all sects and denominations of Christians
are placed on equal footing." Some 57 years
later, after Congress was petitioned to separate
Christian principles from government, in 1853
the House Judiciary Committee issued their
formal report, including these words: "In this
age there is no substitute for Christianity.
This was the religion of the founders of the
republic, and they expected it to be the
religion of their dependents. The great vital,
conservative elements in our system is the
belief of our people in the pure doctrines
and divine truths of the gospel of Jesus
Christ." - - - Dr. Gerald Beavan

"It is the duty of nations, as well as of men,
to own their dependence upon the overruling
power of God and to recognize the sublime
truth announced in the Holy Scriptures and
proven by all history, that those nations only
are blessed whose God is the Lord."
-- President Abraham Lincoln

Trust in yourself and you are doomed to
disappointment; trust in money and you
may have it taken from you; but trust in
God, and you are never to be confounded
in time or eternity. - D.L. Moody

Faith and love are apt to be spasmodic
in the best of minds. Men and women live
on the brink of mysteries and harmonies
into which they never enter and with their
hand on the door latch they die outside.
- - GK Chesterton

Best wishes for continued ascendancy,
Dr. Whoami

I like the "boring" style actually. Well, I think it's good to take some time off to dress up or to amaze other people with fancy clothes and eye-catching accessories cos in the end, you are the one who decide it. Just wear what you want, that make you most comfortable with. And flaunt it!

Blogger stilettoheights said...

I like the "boring" style too, some call is classic, plus then it allows your personality to be the main accessory...which is awesome.

(personality or a killer orange hand bag, you can choose)

I don't think you've lost your fashion touch...I think you've just reach a turning point in your fashion career....there is something very appealing about clean lines and simplisity...in fact sometimes its harder to make simple look chic...so don't worry I'm sure it will all work out.....when you stary wearing crocs that's when I'll get worried

Yes I recognise that! I have those days that I don't put any effort in dressing up. And that I can be very happy with wearing a skinny, shirt and vest. I don't think it's boring at all!

Instead of boring you can use an euphemism, and say clean style. It sounds better, doesn't it? ;)

i love the leather trousers, where are they from? i must get them before alanna. it is a huge war between us for leather trousers. i know what you mean about the 'boring' fashion. sometimes i just wish to be dressed simply,in bootcut jeans and a plain tshirt. the problem is that as soon as i am dressed in my simple outfit i will see someone dressed all hippy/80's (my trademark look) and wish to be dressed like that again. it's a vicious cycle.

you are at a desirable point of your development.. i wish i was able to convince myself to get back to simple and sleek again but everytime i try i find myself too boring and start all over again. that can be pretty tiring u know? it's my inner drive to stand out and at last: i am trying too hard

Nothing wrong with minimalism.

I also think that's how you can tell when someone has amazing personal style, shown by that pic despite clothing-wise the simplicity of their outfits, one continues to stare at that pic, whereas a pic of the "LA starlets" I can't stand to look at them for more than a nano second.

if thats how you feel then i must be the most boring person alive... loose white tee and dark skinnies is all i wear nowadays... of course it doesnt help that i just moved to a tropical island that forbids any kind of layering... but as someone has mentioned before.. a killer bag/shoes/accessories helps... A LOT... or rather.. think of it as a palette to showoff your bag/shoes/accessoories... ;)

I wouldn't consider that style boring, just very simple and comfortable. I think we all wish we didn't have to wear heels and make up...we are all looking to act and look like that.

i like it. It has a nice clean and classic feel to it. And the best thing? you don't have to worry if you can pull of flashy prints and all that.

I can comiserate with your fashion block, but I don't think you should call the style "boring". It definitely has that classic appeal -- effortless elegance, if you will.

It's not boring! I love the simple look, though I've grown out of it. I'm sure everyone's had a fashion block before. When I did, I just wore black tops, jeans and flats, then load on accessories. Don't worry, you'll find your way out of your block soon!

Blogger discothequechic said...

It does sound a bit like you're having fashion block, I think its possible to get that when you've been buying too many new clothes and the novelty factor has worn off.

When this happenes to me, I get all of my clothes out of wardrobe, scrutinising them, asking why I don't wear half of it, and pairing pieces together that I would never have considered, its amazing how much better you can feel about your clothes once you do this!

PS, I think the leather trousers idea is good, not at all boring. Rather brave haha.

To be honest, I've been studying fashion so long that I never really gave alot of thought to my own clothing...I've been a Black&White sort of girl for years....Now that I think about it, that's what suits me best. I feel awkward in things with too much color or prints.

Maybe we're weird?

J'agree. I'm calling it anti-fashion fashion, as in a backlash to all this in-yer-face fashion we've been subjected to lately. I don't want the same It-bag, Prada turban and Marc shoes as everyone else so I'm doing my own thing and giving 'fashon' a sabatical! Just make sure you have good hair (and a pretty face doesn't hurt either).
