I rock a pair of Nike Air Max, people tell me it's good I'm going to the gym. I wear a quilted skirt, people ask why I'm wearing half a sleeping bag. I buy a vintage jacket and people sing 'Climb Every Mountain' because apparently I look like I'm wearing the Sound of Music curtain outfit (the most offensive thing there being the weak song choice, of course).

The notion that men should fear the end of sexism is as absurd and repellent as the notion that white people should fear the end of racism, or straight people should fear the end of homophobia. But should David Cameron fear feminism? Well probably yes.

John C. Parkin

In that moment, I realized I have two wardrobes: the one that fits me now. And the one that will hopefully fit again in a few weeks / months. Maybe you have the same. Funny, I'm not remotely a follower of fashion, and am thus not remotely interested in whether The Second Wardrobe as I will from now on call it, will drift out of fashion in the months (or years) that it is (not literally) mothballed.
