i love your newest outfit! and i think you could have shown your bandage in the photos, there is nothing to be ashamed of, it even looks kinda cool :)
I did show it on instagram :) and I’m not ashamed of it
Just don’t want to show off that there’s something going on with my arm, I’m doing my best to function as well as possible, and although I appreciate all the sweet and concerned comments about it, I’m trying not to focus on being injured too much :)
Hello! Just a quick question, will you be collaborating with any brands in the future? As I loved your collection with Black Blessed! x
Thank you! Yes! I am working on an exciting collaboration at the moment, but these things really take some months.
Though what is even more exciting to me is that I am now working on something completely on my own too :) Can’t wait to show you all
As a teenager I would often ask myself: when will I wake up, look in the mirror and feel okay and at peace with the reflection. And even now at this age, while finding imperfections in others utterly beautiful, I can be very criticizing towards myself sometimes.
Until last Friday night. I was working on cutting some leather when my razor knife slipped over an old ruler and cut right through my left hand. I rushed over to the sink to clean the wound and stop the bleeding when I realized my index finger couldn’t move anymore. I got nauseous from the thought that this could be permanent, so I put on my trainers and got myself to the hospital as fast as I could. A special plastic surgeon came over from a different hospital to open up my entire hand and wrist to reattach the tendons.
This relatively small damage to one of the functions on my body made me really upset and reminded me just how fantastic and perfect this vessel is. Having a human body is like winning the genetic lottery; a set of perfect tools; 10 fingers and an intelligent brain. It functions, it works, it repairs itself. How can you ever complain about something as insignificant like your appearance when you’ve got the most advanced, best working machine to your disposal for free?!
So the next morning I woke in the hospital, for the first time in my life, being completely happy, thankful and freed from all my petty body issues. So even though I’ll only have one hand to use the coming 6 weeks, I feel happier than ever.
Hope everyone discovers their silver linings and sees the positive side of everything. Happy Sunday everyone!
p.s. (I also got a cool Margiela-esque, white hospital bracelet with my name on it )
