Malaria Versus the Gap in your Memory

Last night I woke up from this epically amazing dream with this sentence stuck in my head: "Malaria versus the Gap in your Memory". And my dream brain represented these two, you know, "opposing forces" as brown squiggles of coloured pencil with post-it notes for mouths. I know, right? Scary!

There is a reason I'm telling you about my dreams, promise. You see, as soon as I saw the Sonia Rykiel portrait dress on Kaylene's post, I couldn't stop thinking about two rather abstract thoughts, namely "malaria" and "the gap in your memory". It took me a good hour to realise why. (Dramatic Pause). It is because the hair on the dress is the EXACT same colour of brown as the squiggles.

So then, of course, I went on a fun cognitive journey this morning of how dreams and life and experience and all that new-age hoo-ha can effect your inspiration. For example, did you know that the black backless dress which closed the Chanel 2007 Fall collection was inspired by a dream Karl Lagerfeld had? And it is amazing! So the way I see it is you cannot be at all picky of where your inspiration comes from. Self-censorship is an ugly word and practice. So, Kaylene my dear, I think that if you are inspired by yourself, than you have found an amazing and rather affordable source. A whole lot cheaper than travelling. 

By the way, my name is Centine. This is me, drinking beer. I study Communications and Media Studies and Creative Writing. Kaylene and I will be conducting a "Fashion Dialogue" in this space, purely for your pleasure. 

But, Kaylene, I have a question now. I am about to meet some friends for a round of golf. On two previous occasions have I exhausted my supply of argyle. Is it appropriate to wear the same item of clothing to the same event with the same people if the item in question serves a specific purpose?
