WORN Fashion Journal Presents: Heartbreak Karaoke – February 14, 2014

Was it the son of a preacher man? A devil in a blue dress? You obviously didn’t listen—but now everyone else will.

Don’t just feel the pain, spread it around.

We’ve got a karaoke machine, a microphone, sad, sad, sad songs, and enough bitter tears and sweet liquor to fill a swimming pool. What else could you possibly need to mourn your latest romantic folly?

All proceeds will go to the production of WORN Fashion Journal. This year, we’re trying to raise enough money for our very own lighting equipment. Support independent publishing, and sing us a sad song!

Talking About My ‘Do in Worn Journal Issue 15

Worn Journal Issue 15
Worn Journal Issue 15

I’m in the current issue of Worn Journal. It’s been out since November but I’m only getting around to posting about it now. In June, I got an email from Serah-Marie asking if she could feature me in Worn’s hair issue. As you can imagine, I was a little perplexed at why I would be included. She explained that the piece would be feature on people with interesting hair styles. Accompanying the photos would be an interview with questions related to hair and identity. I said yes without question because it’s Worn Journal and it’s a great topic that my (lack of) hair could contribute to.

Worn Journal Issue 15 – Talking Heads – Seven discussions of distinctive ‘dos

The talented Lainee Dee did my makeup before I ventured to the Worn Journal offices to meet the photographer, Brittany Lucas. I brought a few different outfits to choose from for the shoot but the final decision was the Smythe Warbler Tribute Blazer, earring by Eliza Kozurno and a leather Tshirt by Danier. It was late July when this photo was taken and it was roasting outside. With the leather and the blazer on I’m surprised my makeup isn’t’ running all over the place in this shot. Brittany and I went into the alley by the office and took a number of shots against different garage doors and using different angles and mostly stoic facial expressions. I’ve always said I’m terrible at the model scowl, this photo proves me wrong. Smiling comes so naturally to me but it’s nice to see I can do the complete opposite too. I’m pretty much in love with the photo. It turned out better than I could have ever dreamed. Lainee and Brittany did a fantastic job of making me look great. I’m giving myself a pat on the back for the kick ass styling 🙂

Now your probably curious about my interview. Well, you’ll have to grab yourself a copy of Worn Journal Issue 15 to read it. The issue is fantastic overall and you should probably buy a copy anyways. It’s available online at wornjournal.com or in person at a whole ton of places in the city and beyond.

Thank you Worn Journal.

The Redesign WORN Fashion Journal Project

WORN Fashion Journal is getting a makeover this fall and they are running an Indiegogo campaign to help fund the project.

Our readers have told us they keep their issues of WORN at record-breaking rates. Over 97% of WORN readers keep their issues forever. Our content is timeless and always relevant. We believe it makes perfect sense for our readers to want to hang on to their issues of WORN forever.

We believe a thicker, perfect-bound edition reflects the true value of WORN. It’s a prestige object our readers should be able to stack on a bookshelf, keep safe in a purse, or display proudly on a coffee table. We believe this new format is a necessary step for WORN. We are no longer a group of friends working in a living room; we’re a real business that makes a product we believe in with all our hearts. We want the outside of WORN to reflect the inside.

Where will the money go?
WORN needs $5,000 to complete this project. The breakdown is as follows:

– The additional fee for perfect binding and extra pages is $2,000 over our standard printing bill.

– The new edition of WORN weighs more and will incur further shipping costs. We require $2,000 to cover the increase in shipping costs.

– The new size of WORN will require different shipping supplies. We have the material necessary to ship out the old version of WORN, but we need $1,000 to purchase sturdier envelopes for durable shipping to WORN readers all over the world.

I’ve been a fan of WORN since the beginning and I jumped at the opportunity to participate in the campaign video. One sunny Saturday afternoon, I sat in Dufferin Grove Park and talked about why I think WORN is important. It turned out so fantastic! Check it out. If you’re a fan of independent fashion voices please help fund the new redesign of WORN Fashion Journal at Indiegogo .
