We are perennially encouraged to cultivate our own style. But when I think of this woman and the kind of surreal glamour she glided in at night and the clean austerity she exuded during the day, I can’t help but want to cop her identity. She transcended chic so effortlessly, and no one even comes close to this day.
Appreciation should be much more private than everyone recognizing what you’re wearing. It’s better not to buy the ‘significant clothes’ of a season, because even though they are really marvelous things, there are others which are just as beautiful, and quiet. I don’t think we are meant to go around just being great consumers of things…. There’s no point parading in all sorts of finery if it’s hollow underneath.

…two food and drink-related comics: the largely absurd Chew, Volume 1, which no one should bother picking up at all,
and the best wine manga in the world, The Drops of God. A fascinating page-turner that focuses, in this volume, largely on Burgundy, a region I’ve been meaning to explore. Highly recommended for its recommendations of reasonably priced bottles from the daunting region. Gives you tons of info, and best of all, a license to drink.
