wardrobe_remix(ers) o’ the week

sorry so late today…i’ve been under the weather, so to speak.

seems like wardrobe_remix is getting some internet press lately, thus, lots of people are joining up. i want to take the time here to point out that i am grateful that people are interested in the project. it’s fabulous!

but i also want to make some things clear, as the group grows and grows. get stuff out there, on the table, just so you know. you know?

i want everyone to know that the photos i feature in every single installment of the weekly wardrobe_remix(ers) o’ the week column are examples the type of wardrobe_remix photos i PERSONALLY favor, and have favored since i started the group, by myself, in september of 2005. when i post these pictures, i am showing you what i, the creator of the community, feel are the best of the best photos and people in the group, to convince you come and join us!

***

what do *i* think makes a good wardrobe_remix photo, you ask? i’ll tell you!

a clear, hi-res digital image

a composition that is relatively free of clutter, well-lit, and interestingly framed

seeing your face! i know some people are all weird about that, but you know what, faces are what make us human. i like faces. a photograph of this sort, in my opinion, looks weird without a face. if you don’t include your face, i probably won’t ever feature your photos here or anywhere else (like for instance, the wardrobe_remix “remix_redux” column in Adorn Magazine I do every season). and that’s a shame, because some of you headless people probably have lovely faces to match your chic senses of style! so, poo on no heads in WR photos, i say.

***

i also want you to know: ever since i started doing these wardrobe_remix,(ers) o’ the week weekly promotional posts, just like this one, i have been making an effort to choose people (of all sizes, styles, genders, etc.) whose whole look is forward and interesting, and if the photo is framed nicely, so much the better! yes, i like to show off what i consider to be the stars of wardrobe_remix, but at the same time, i also make an attempt to choose different folks every week and mix it up with boys and girls alike. i like it diverse, and i like it different. that is who i am, it is my personal style/fashion vision, and is the ethos with which i created wardrobe_remix.

i’ve noticed that lots of other folks are starting to use the photos of wardrobe_remix users in their blogs, but i want to remind peeps that wardrobe_remix, and everything associated with it started here. πŸ™‚ thanks for featuring photos from the group, internet bloggers! it’s great! please do remember to give credit to the folks featured in the photo, and if you’re feeling nice, to wardrobe_remix, too! it’s good internet etiquette. share the love!

so, without any further ado, this week’s stars!

    lebonbon: of course…thanks for the information. i did notice you were doing it together! it’s fab…keep it up, i am loving the people you’ve been showcasing. how are you approaching them? do you guys have business cards? are people being receptive? at any rate…it’s terrific!

    Usually we approach people by telling them we love there style and explain a little why we are doing this and what the blog is about.We ask there permission to take the photo and give them a little paper with the link to the blog for now,we wanna get some sort of flyer for it with a mosaic of photos we took on the streets with the blog addy on it eventually.People are very receptive when we tell them we love there style,it seems to work pretty good.We ask the person for there email so we can send them questions,sometimes they dont want to or dont have one,but the person gives us permission so we add the photo to the blog and write what we loved about that persons outfit.I find it a little hard with the language here,because you dont know if the person speaks french or english and I feel a little silly asking someone do you speak english or french?In a couple of case the person was no good with either french or english but we got our point across and a pic and there permisson.Its fun and exciting and stressful a bit but so inspirering πŸ™‚

    Oh wow! I did a search for Wardrobe Remix and this category came up. Glad I made it!

    This will ensure that I will try to post more!

    I will have to add you to my fashion blog blogroll so I can remember to keep up now that you’re not on LJ anymore.
