Weird For The Win

If this post makes no sense, I apologize.  I'm going to level with you all, I am outright spent and my mind is straight fried.  I feel like I can't trust the connection between my thoughts and what comes out of my mouth (or fingertips, rather).  It all comes down to the fact that, manual labor is a whole 'nother animal than what I am used to for a day job.  And now, I'm at a point where a fog of exhaustion is wafting over my entire brain and is clouding my ability to articulate and even focus.  So please, bear that qualifier in mind as you read on.   

I recently started following The Great Kelly Wearstler on Pinterest, which is peculiar because she definitely checks the "all of the above" box on a choice between interior designer idol, girl crush, and all around impressive human being, so I don't know why it took me so long to jump aboard her Pinterest train.  As a designer, she knocks the ball out of the park with a style that is uniquely her own, truly eclectic, cultural and classy.  One day I will write a true tribute post to her.. but today is not that day.  On the contrary, I was a little thrown off by some of the photos she was "pinning," as they were a bit... Bizarre (with a capital "B!").

Initially, I thought: "Has she lost it?!"  but then I realized: "Maybe this is where she gets her genius...?"  Maybe her sources of inspiration are much broader and abstract than a lay, designer-wannabe like myself.  It would explain a lot and also help me comprehend the difference between the so-called "greats" and the "lemmings" (ie: me).  Allow me to share some of the aforementioned weird and cryptic photos to illustrate my point:

Not like the rest of the Pinterest regurgitation you're probably used to though, amirite?  Regardless, I still love ya Kelly, even if I don't understand you... Let your freak flag fly, girl!

(I hope you have the same loyalty to me in the event that you don't understand me or what the heck I'm trying to say in this scattered post :).   

XOXO
