Czeslaw Milosz, Alejandra Pizarnik, Sappho, CAConrad, and John Berryman as inadvertent stylists...!
Hello! Today, I have for you five outfits based on five poems/excerpts of poems from five different poets. Yesterday was my birthday, so I wanted to indulge in my favorite aspects of outfit-making. The looks are based on literal, figurative, structural, and emotional interpretations of poems by Czeslaw Milosz, Alejandra Pizarnik, Sappho, CAConrad, and John Berryman. I’ll leave their interpretations open, as poems should be. Hope you enjoy!
If you like these posts, please let me know by sharing (tag me if on IG so I can see and thank you!), liking, saving, and commenting on HR’s Instagram, subbing to the HR Patreon or Substack (this) for as little as two bucks a month (extra posts, personal styling, and more available on there!) or throwing me a few shillings on Ko-fi if you’re able.
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.
