Selectism | Around The Web

01. 5 Days a week

“I knew I needed nice pieces that were pulled together, pieces that I didn’t have to think about so much in those painful morning hours, clothes that were COMFORTABLE and anti-fussy…..but at the same time the thought of shopping was a nightmare.

I’ll admit, as I am fairly unabashed in my day-to-day actions, I liked this look to the point of strutting for a few blocks en route to the station this morning. No one was around to notice, but I knew…. I knew. ” (Momentum of Failure)

04. Communist-era Romania

“Dan from Bucharest has been in touch to share this website based on a recent book he contributed to. The charmingly titled ‘Graphics Without Computer – 40 Years of Modest Achievements’ covers communist-era Romanian graphic design.” (Magculture)
