We Are What We Wear

We like Worn Stories, Emily Spivack’s fascinating collection of profiles about notable people through the lens of their clothing. It’s a study in identity expressed by fashion choices. We started following Spivack when she started the fashion blog for the Smithsonian.  She has a knack for giving us nuggets of insights into why we aspire to certain pieces of clothing as a function of identity. Spivack’s eBay-centric website Sentimental Value takes readers into the stories behind clothing items for sale on eBay. Just for fun, check out her series of WikiHows on How To Dress when you’re staring at your closet wondering who you want to be next.
