The Coveted Wears Something Today

Holy moly… The Coveted is in a book… what I wore today: Fashion Remixed Online from Bejing to Berlin, about the phenomenon of documenting personal style and sharing it online. I must admit, I’m a little surprised… they did ask me for permission a few months ago via wardrobe_remix, but when initial discussions about the old title.. WIWT: Fashion Narcissism Online there was a lump in my throat. But then they changed the title… but it still leaves me pondering if photographing myself is really narcissistic. I’m able to feel better knowing the community that has sprung up around the personal style format is really wonderful, that because of this community it’s lead to greater discussions about fashion beyond cute outfits. It’s changed my life, and it’s changed the lives of others, so in that respect the what I wore today phenomenon is truly well deserving of a book.

btw… there’s a helpful post on Independent Fashion Bloggers on taking gorgeous ‘what are you wearing today’ pics.
