Digest Your Dress

By Suraya

Recently, fashion houses like LV and Chanel, and photographers Lisa Edsalv and Fulvio Bonavia, have delved into the topic of Food as Fashion by creating a direct fusion between the two. In my opinion the two go together so well because both can become such fantastic indulgences.

Of course, this opinion isn’t shared by all. Many in the fashion world will tell you that indulging too much in one of these two (EATING!!) will totally affect the ability to indulge in and enjoy the other fully. With fashion on the other hand, the view is completely different, and too much is never enough. In fact, being able to over-indulge is just pure luck, will render you the envy of the town, and is totally beneficial to our endorphin levels…

Perhaps the answer then, is to indulge in the two in similarly cautious and mindful ways. When it comes to food, the I spend the most on those the good stuff. The fresh veg, starches and proteins take up most of my refrigerator, but I also love spoiling myself and eating a really interesting and fun gourmet treat every now and then to keep the palate alive and kicking! And with my fashion palate, it’s no different.

Your staples are best kept selective and classic, with the workhorse pieces being things like those white blouses, those perfect black cigarette jeans, or those boots that you spent a fortune on but have taken you through three winters. On top of that, come the extras that are added in as fashion dictates, and The Fad creates. Depending on what is en mode at the time, I select what to add to my “timeless” collection, instead of getting a zillion things in one week which only look great on me during that week.

So when it comes to food and fashion don’t be afraid to indulge, but remember that overindulging too much in either could be causing you to digest your dress!
