The holiday season always makes me count my blessings. And this year, I realized that a lot of the things I’m grateful for revolve around my blog. Aside from being a creative outlet that I so desperately need, I’ve actually made quite a few friends from the experience.
One of my dearest friendships is with Lizzie Bramlett, creator of The Vintage Traveler. She is one of the most interesting people I know! Her blog is fantastic. Being able to read about her travels and participate in her vintage treasure hunting and musing on fashion history is totally engrossing. I always look forward to receiving her posts emailed right to my inbox. As our friendship grew, we have been able to collaborate on many things.
One of our latest collaborations involved Dilys Blum’s talk on surrealist hats. Her talk was part of the public programming to celebrate Hats: An Anthology by Stephen Jones, a current exhibition at Bard Graduate Center. Thanks to Lizzie, I was able to attend the talk. To show my gratitude for her information, I wrote a guest post for her. The article, A Light-hearted Look at the Surrealist Hat, was posted a few days ago. Won’t you take a look? I think you’ll love her site as much as I do. You’ll also see the surrealist influence on fashion, past and present.
