The colours & fit were great; I can definitely see why it was included. Sleep deprivation is clearly inspirational!

Good picks, wonder who's next.

Actually, in the spirit of MoK's suggestion that we switch guest editorship to a regular poster with a contrasting style at the end of each tenure, I was rather wondering if you might be interested to take a turn?

Pending official Vox-approval, obviously.

Sometimes I should just keep my gob shut and keep my foot out of it.

But I should have a bit of extra time this week anyway, as it happens, and it looks like fun, so if the vox & the masses approve of the choice, I'd be happy to give it a twirl!

Excellent! Can't wait to see the results.

Weekly Unfair Digest for 23rd Oct thru 30th Oct

One of the most powerful things about clothing is that it can tell a story.

I think that at its best, deciding what we wear can be used to either selectively reveal or selectively disguise something of our inner selves. Style can be used as either a window or a mirror, a narrative or a filibuster. Neither is "better" than the other, as long as it's done with intent.

I've tried to pick images that to me represent that degree of focus in creating a message, whether the message is to explain or obfuscate. Sometimes two or three images told their story better when juxtaposed against each other, so forgive the editing.

Firmly believing that alcohol & blindness would aid the digest selection process, I found a suitable role model:



One of the perennial highlights of WAYWRN is the close-up shot. Close-ups are brilliant fun because you really have no way of knowing if the rest of the outfit is a tour de force or a tour of duty in Afghanistan. They're the WAYWRN's flash of dainty ankle from under the crinoline.



It wouldn't be a digest without a few "SF-approved" looks. The better posters know how to work the uniform elements to their advantage, introducing personal quirks, or just plain doing it absolutely right. A few examples:




I also wanted to include a few more casual outfits. I personally find casual much harder to do well than tailored clothing, so I'm always on the look out for good-looking casual outfits



Sometimes, certain regulars just have "a look" they've nailed totally. Without seeing the name, you still know exactly who they are. They've got their personal style/identity down pat, and they're totally comfortable in that zone:





Lastly, WAYWRN always provides a few more "quirky" images. All the following images brought a smile to my face, so deserved inclusion in this week's digest:

Mr Bond, my Weather Control Device will wreak havoc across the world...



Weather Control Device Revealed... Rain Dancing!



Looking Up for the Precipitation



Better find a Giant Umbrella to take cover



Evil Henchpeople Attack! No, wait, Pose First!



Mr Bond is unruffled at being called in, and is my Image of the Week:



And with that, the World is saved. Time for coffee...




Thanks for the opportunity to do a guest slot this week! I hope you enjoyed the picks. There was a lot that I just couldn't include for space reasons, and I should probably have been more selective still.

But everything I've chosen, I genuinely enjoyed seeing in the WAYWRN thread. And that was good enough for me!
