Month of May


It's Springtime and the mom jeans are in full bloom. No prissy floral skirts, just full on high-waisted, crotch-ripped denim. Bam! In case you don't keep up with my on my numerous social media accounts (speaking of which, my twitter handle is now @isabelslone - so profesh) I've been writing a lot for the Toronto Standard. Here are some excerpts from my latest articles, and keep your eyes peeled for my weekly articles in the Style section.

I wrote about the social implications of getting a haircut...
“When I was younger, getting a haircut was a fate worse than the dentist. The black nylon cape was like a straightjacket; I was too terrified to move my hands to scratch an itch or brush dangling strings of wet hair out of my eye… Now that I'm an adult no longer self-conscious about my itches, I’ve embraced the hairdresser’s chair as a throne of self-reinvention.”


“Do you remember when Courtney Love punched Kathleen Hanna at Lollapalooza in 1995, supposedly over an off-comment made about Courtney’s alleged drug use during her pregnancy with Frances Bean? Ok, neither do I because – full disclosure - I was precisely five years old at the time. But that doesn’t stop me from caring about decades-old beef between the high priestess of riot grrrl and the queen of kinderwhore.”

So yeah, I write things and have a great time doing it and it is my ultimate life goal to become and editor by age 25 and have a really awesome career-focused life. There, I said it. I don't really care about travelling or racking up really meaningful life experiences, I live to work because writing is my passion and that's really all there is. But sometimes you gotta have fun, at that's what WORN Fashion Journal is for! Last Saturday they held an issue launch party for the latest issue (best cover of all time) and it was SO FREAKING FUN. The people, the music, the clothes, everything was just golden. I look embarrassingly drunk in most of the photos so here is me and my friend Julia with magazines over our faces.

I was only one...It is weird that I feel homesick for a period of time I never lived in...

I didn't know you had a Twitter account, but I read your fashion blogs/grunge bands article and it made me discover some well-known bloggers... I live in a cave, I guess.
