Of the many currents that I can see emerging after interviewing about four hundred people for SLU is the lack of the importance of the “trend of the moment” and the blur between seasons that is starting to emerge in terms of how we dress and consume clothes. Not only does wearing the opposite thing in the opposite temperature look fresh, but in the world of SLU muses, having to own something that is most au courant is pretty much nonexistant. For example, one of Greta’s favorite pieces was bought at a flea market two years ago and she uses it as a skirt, dress, scarf, or t-shirt. It’s not about whether this particular piece has the stamp of approval by a fashion magazine or designer, but only that it speaks to her. Greta attributes her strong sense of her style to her mother, who had closets of beautiful things. In fact, many people on this site attribute their strong identity to an older relative and many, like Greta, commemorate something meaningful on them in the form of a tattoo. In Greta’s case, however, her tattoo is an actual memorial to her mom.
