The Wish I Wish Tonight
I mayn't, I mightn't.
Heeeeeyyyy. Going easy on myself as I ease back in to the rhythm of posting, so not going to try to write a dissertation tonight, just sharing a list of clothing things I have loved recently. I am in actually really horrible financial straits right now, so if you know anyone who’s hiring a stylist, copywriter, editor, or hooligan, please let me know, ‘cause god, do I want to be able to start living my life as a human being instead of a physical manifestation of a truly unthinkable amount of debt.
Also, if you’re a brand (wow, you’re sentient, impressive!) or work for one, I will gladly try your clothes/accessories/designer drugs (jk…Unless?) out for you and if they are up to snuff, happily shill them in as shrill a shill voice as I shall be able to.
Basically, I want to be able to keep working in the fashion sphere, no matter what sector I’m in, and I want to keep being able to love clothes instead of feeling helpless in the face of prices that genuinely don’t compute in my brain. I know that’s a privileged desire, and I’m not saying it’s righteous, but it’s mine. I love picking clothes out of the entropic heap of the universe and writing about them for you. I also LOVE to hear your thoughts, especially in the comments, even if they’re combative or vexing (if you are the literal Sphynx, though, send riddles via DM, plz).
If you like these posts, please let me know by liking and commenting here or on HR’s Instagram, subbing to the HR Substack (this) for as little as two bucks a month, one dollar per bonus post (subsidized subs available HERE) or for ZERO DOLLARS, share (tag me if on IG so I can see and thank you)!
Thank you SO MUCH for your support, whatever you are able and willing to do to help is extremely valuable to me and I’m honored to be a small part of your life on the web.
