Style as a Way of Living

I just want to say something up about Wishful Thinking.
You may see it as a fashion blog. However, I consider this to be a Style blog. 
Dictionary.com defines "style" as a "distinctive mode of living". 
I like to blog about all kinds of things that affect style: appearance, fashion, music, events, the small things. Life.


Which brings me to my next point. I may not be able to vote just yet, but I definitely have an opinion about the future of the country I live in. Which is why I want to quickly mention the 2008 Presidential election [Raise your hand if you saw this coming].


A lot of people my age figure, "I'm not old enough to vote, so what do I care about the election?" And I think that's ridiculous. I'm not going to discuss my personal views, but I think that everyone should have an opinion about their future. You may not think some things affect you, but they do. I also see a lot of people who have firm opinions on who they would like to be president, but they don't have adequate reasons to back it up. Please, don't be ignorant or uninformed! I'd like to encourage everyone to think hard about themselves and their own personal opinions. Research every side of every issue. Figure out what you stand for. And if you can vote, get out to the booths tomorrow and do it!

•Extra Love: My friend has a very interesting take on politics that he writes about in his blog We The Politics. [It's now linked in my sidebar.] He really knows his stuff and has an open mind. So check it out!  :]

Richard Avedon

Richard Avedon greatly influenced photography throughout his career. He was very interested in capturing the personality of a person in his portraits, rather than just capturing a likeness. He often shot his portraits in front of a plain white background to in order to focus on the emotion of the subject. Among some of his most famous photographs is this portrait of Marilyn Monroe:

Avedon, however, also recreated the idea of the fashion shoot. Instead of photographing fashion shots with the models standing emotionless and bored-looking, acting simply as a standing hanger for the clothes, he captured them with emotion
n and usually in action.

Here are some of my favorites:








Avedon was also the inspiration for Dick Avery, the fashion photographer played by Fred Astaire in the 1957 musical movie Funny Face.

He died October 1, 2004 in San Antonio, Texas while shooting for the New Yorker.
