Who my favourite designers are: At present, the three that come most quickly to mind are Riccardo Tisci (Givenchy), Rae Kawakubo (Comme des Garçons), Stefano Pilati (until recently, Yves Saint Laurent).
Why I spell things with a "u" when Americans don't: No, I'm not trying to bogart a British identity. I grew up reading old books, primarily from English authors, and so I became very accustomed to seeing certain words (ie. "colour, neighbour") spelled with a "u". Such as it is, spelling them without just looks funky to me.
What some of my favourite things in life are: Good books, good food, good conversation. Fashion, design, and art. Taking photographs. Styling. Debating. Drinking pinot gris. Learning languages (at the moment, I have confidence in my skills with English, Norwegian, Spanish, and I am currently learning French). Teaching. Writing instructional things. Writing editorial things. Writing, really, most of anything. Learning.
The word "threadbare" means worn through, possibly shabby, and is often an indication of the lowest means possible. I like the idea that with nothing more than a Tumblr and the wide, wide world of the Internet at my fingertips, I can create something true, raw (two things that I find the word "threadbare" strike in me also), and near to me. I turned it into something of a pun, as well, because I decided to spell it in a way that would conjure the idea of baring threads - like wearing clothing. And then, if you want to get into a more metaphysical state, bearing our threads could be showing our interests, and showing ourselves. I want to, with this blog, at the very least, create something honest and passionate.
