What holds true for fashion, the same goes for the trends that matter most: those that ebb and flow within my own head. Change is constant, and in fashion, I never say never. A leopard-print shirt, eyeshadow, a kimono—never would I have thought—and now, denim and a necktie. Heavens, never would I have even thought I’d finish an entire burger of beef!

I had a conversation with my friend and editor Kwannam about this new look I espouse. Where’s the paint splatter, the twenty rings, the odd shapes? “Wear whatever you like,” he says, “it’s your blog.” Look closely, I’m still very much in there.

I’ve taken to painting my left ring finger nail a shade that suits my liking. This time it’s vivid red, brighter than ketchup. In a wardrobe slowly being taken over by classic menswear, it’s my last bastion of kook.

My favorite shoes are starting to crack fatally. Should I deep-condition them, or allow them to fray gracefully?
Out goes my vegetarianism, at least for the holiday.

I left, dripping with grease.
