What about you? Have you read lots and lots of fabulous Atwood? Let me know. I have to admit I am more intrigued by her since Book Riot's celebration because she did a lot of discussion about monsters and what it means, one, to have monsters in literature, and two, that monsters in modern literature are becoming the good guys (think Edward and Jacob for example). At the Edinburgh Book Festival she asked the most interesting question of these good-guy monsters: what carries the darkness that monsters used to carry? Because, as she also said, there is no such thing as monsters, monsters are a metaphor. So what then, takes the place of vampires and zombies to carry human kind's metaphoric evil? Suggested answers were corporations and humans. See what looking at other authors does? It clouds ideas of what I should write my thesis about. It's a mess. Too many things are just too interesting!
While it may seem today's outfit is a thrown together frock and cardigan, it is actually haute couture straight down the lines of Saint Laurent. See here and here and here. There is a funny story associated with the french word 'faible' that I will have to tell you another day, but when I looked up the translation of low—opposite of high/haute—that is what I got. I hate to say it, but a large bit of this season seems rather 'faible couture' to me. Harsh critic? Personal opinion.
Get in close. A secret. The good thing, as a result, is you can get it at the op/thrift shop/store instead of spending a fortune on 'designer'. Hee hee.
Who wore it better?
