The temperature is set to drop once again, and I must admit my hopes for an unusually early Spring have been dashed. I’m spending my days dreaming of wading into warm ocean water with the sun on my back, and spending my nights cuddling close to my dog Honey. Luckily, there are a few things in my life that warm my heart enough to survive any winter: freshly steeped tea, cuddles, warm pyjamas, and the newest issue of WORN Fashion Journal.
I’ve been working with WORN for almost four years now, and there’s nothing quite as thrilling as seeing a finished issue of the magazine with a feature I’ve written in it. It takes a lot to get a feature ready for print from start to finish, and the feeling when it is finally done and placed in my hands is unparalleled. Winter blues don’t stand a chance.
Though I’ve written two other features for WORN in the past and plenty of blog posts and book reviews, I have to say my femme invisibility article in issue 17 is by far my favourite. I finally got to share a story that I’ve been thinking about writing for a very long time, and I wouldn’t of had it published anywhere but Worn. Femme Invisibility is a subject near and dear to my heart, and its been amazing to connect with others who identify with what I wrote and experienced. The only word I can use to describe that feeling of coming together and sharing is warm.
It was a bit of a journey, but the article, layout, and photos turned out exactly how I had hoped (perfectly pastel), and the end result is a piece of work I will treasure forever. I hope you all have a chance to read it!
