A reasonably educated person trying to make sense of it all, and a little tormented as a result. Thinking aloud, mostly.
These opinions rarely reflect the ideas of any of my employers.

The fashion industry is like the matrix
I don't resent it, but I don't always accord with it either. A cracked column I just read mentioned someone who said they are now less quick to judge people who are out of style. It's no longer a crime to wear last year's cuff shape.
I can't see a person in a blue sweater without thinking of the Devil Wears Prada.
Just as the matrix was the idea that we're all just living in some computer program, fashion is less about our personal choices than we think.
