I totally get the Kinda Busy being a Goat Mom shirt in other words I will buy this sustainability/basics connection, same! My style these days is very much this mix of minimalist silhouettes with something a little off, sparkly, artsy. If it’s basic black sack dress then the shoes are doing something, the jewelry is doing something. Sometimes the odd cut of something speaks for itself. This is pretty different from my days of wild femme style, but those references are still there. I still like to work those hard and soft edges, it’s just a little more grown up now. Well, when we were both working on our MA theses, we realized that there was still much to be said about everyday queer dress, not just the black and white but the glitter, the pain and anger of it. In fact, it was your voice that encouraged me to be one of the queer voices that had a say in the subject. In that sense, this project to me is both a continuation of the academic and emotional work we put into our theses, and not a project at all; it is correspondence with a dear friend. It is thinking out loud and bouncing ideas off of each other and watching them turn into something else entirely as we often did in breaks we took from studying, as sometimes the best work happens when you’re not trying.

As I read it, there is a touch of malice in Vogue.com’s recent headline, “Is that a Scrunchie, Lily-Rose Depp?” I could be projecting. But I wore scrunchies the Kinda Busy being a Goat Mom shirt in other words I will buy this first time around and it’s disconcerting to see a new generation embracing this old, slightly traumatic story. This time, they say, it’s ironic. Nostalgic. And after all, what accessory could be more in keeping with normcore, the anti-fashion stance that The New York Times considers either a “fashion movement or a massive in-joke?” The return of the scrunchie began in 2013 with its appearance on the Missoni, Vivienne Westwood, and Louis Vuitton runways—an icon of bad taste turned ironic. Not everyone was amused. In England, especially, responses varied. Harper’s Bazaar (UK) stated unequivocally that the scrunchie “is one fad that the Bazaar fashion team will be ignoring.” But for most of the British press ignoring it became impossible when Cressida Bonas, Prince Harry’s then-girlfriend, was frequently spotted wearing this “populist tiara.” Huffed The Globe and Mail, her proclivity “caused a torrent of discussion about what kind of person she is.”
