I will never forget Tevye, the father in Fiddler on the Roof, saying to Chava, one of his daughters, “As the good book says ‘Each shall seek his own kind’. In other words a bird may love a fish but where would they build a home together?” It’s a comment in this case that references Chava’s intention to marry Fyedka, a Russian who is not of the Jewish faith, but it’s also a phrase that applies to other unlikely pairing, be they in love, business, or other arrangements.
But I have to say that I disagree with Tevye. Fish and birds CAN be a happy pairing, especially in fashion 🙂
My own personal style aesthetic relies on pairing something basic with something bold, being sure not to overdo it by combining too many patterns and overpowering the look. For this week’s Get Dressed to This, I have chosen to feature, quite literally, fish and fowl.
For the music this time around, I’ve added something a little different as well. By way of the French blog Fluokids, comes this interesting mix by Darabi displaying a genre called “Machine Funk.” Imagine if you put a house or funk DJ inside of a tin can and instructed him to beat out his music instead of playing it on records, and there you have it.
Anyway Happy Friday, and have fun as you Get Dressed to This:
