So this is not your average fashion post. I stumbled accross photographer Eric Valli and his collection entitled Off the Grid. It struck a chord. These are people that "don't want to be part of the problem anymore" and choose to live light.
Don't get me wrong - I LOVE fashion and shoes and clothes and bags and accessories, but sometimes I just feel that it is a little too... complicated, too fancy. Sometimes we just need to take time out and think about the more important things. The past couple of years I have been able to spend some time in the 'wild' and let me tell you - life is so much simpler without mobile phones, computers, and seeing what the latest on the catwalk is. You find that really.... fashion isn't that essential to life. Food for thought people. Food for thought.
*don't you love the irony that this post may well be squeezed between two highly stylistic fashion posts?
