CHAT WITH MELODEE HANSEN/WRITERWhat inspires you... authenticity. those who are brave and loyal to their deepest sense of truth, living by it in quiet, sincere, solid autonomy... not wasting their own or other's time with shallow/empty non-sense. And many many many others things.... too vast to begin to name.
Describe your style... natural-textile fetish. knits. layers. darks giving way to bits of tactile color. leg-warmers. armor enhanced through layers of "feel good" touches, accents; subtle. fibers gentle to the touch of skin and warming.
Mornings are... best with black tea, organic cream, honey, and slow awakenings. With the elements and creatures of flight.
