Questions from Women in Clothes- A Unified Approach to Life


Question: Do you have a unified way of approaching your life, work, relationship, finances, chores, etc?

I don't think so. All of those things have their own rhythms. My relationship with my husband is very stable. We both are very low key and mellow. We've had one serious argument in 34 years. I'm pretty disciplined with my work and that is probably the area where I am most consistent. It may be driven by the fear of not being relevant. As a fashion and accessories design I'm very aware of all the changes in the industry and in the handmade world. I try to keep evolving to keep my work interesting and to be interested in my work. In most cases I don't have set, regular get-togethers with friends and family. Somehow we remain close and enjoy our time together when we can make it happen. Finances are not my strong suit. I track expenses for my business but not personally. I will say that I spend more than necessary. Chores are easy- I just have to add them to a list and they get done. I love lists.
 


Question: Do you address anything political in the way you dress?


Occasionally. I wore an Obama tee shirt when he was running for office. I bought a Women's March Los Angeles sweatshirt and wore it a few times after the march. I designed a tunic that says Persist and Resist on the back. As of today, no one has purchased it. When I was younger used bumper stickers to express my politics. I guess that's kind of like wearing them.
