What I Wore Today: A Photo Series
“What I Wore Today” shots have become as ubiquitous with fashion blogging as the word “menswear” has with the hashtag. It’s become a thing that virtually everybody does, whether on Tumblr or Instagram. One of the most frustrating things about having a Tumblr page that isn’t a micro-blog is that I only post every so often, and something like WIWT shots really have no place on my blog. I realize that I don’t post outfit pics nearly as often as I’d like to, so I asked myself what I could do to feature WIWT shots in an unconventional way, while still keeping in line with TheCreativeRoutine. The answer that I came up with? A photo collage.
For nearly a month now, I’ve been meeting on a regular basis with my friend Diana Liu, who you may recall from past TCR posts. Every few days, we’d get together and document whatever it was that I happened to be wearing that day. Over that time, I’ve compiled a collection of outfit visuals that I collaged together to come up with the series you see here. We captured too much too much goodness for one spread, so I decided to split up this series into two posts.
I was spurred to undertake this project because I realized that I had begun forming a uniform. After noticing patterns in my dress, I decided to document my style evolution as it happened. Looking back, I’ve noticed that my closet has become a collection of blacks, grays, blues, greens, earth tones, and camo. Lots of camo (you’ll get it more in Part II).
