"I remember you well in the Chelsea Hotel"
Perhaps our secrets aren't best kept within each other, but within places. Locked behind apartment doors, tucked into wall crevices, sitting on shelves, peering through windows, lying in open fields, and even tossing in waves and buried beneath sand. There is the moment when you enter or even just pass a place of the past and your mind becomes a flurry of memories. The rush of a kiss. The unforgettable sound of a magnetic laugh. The ghost of someone who left long ago. All of these things still as present as when they first happened. Maybe this is how Leonard Cohen feels about his time at the Chelsea Hotel? This song was after all my inspiration for the post. Dressing up in 60's inspired pieces pretending to be a lady staying in the hotel at that same time, making memories and then leaving them behind with a sign that reads "Do Not Disturb."
The 60's are one of my favorite eras to try and recreate whether it be through photos, make-up, or outfits. Give me a mod style top and some high waisted shorts and I'm good to go...both out into today's world and back to one I only wish I had known.
