Wardrobe vs Pantry

Posted on October 28, 2013

Fashion and food have hit it off.

Truth be known, Zoë and I didn’t know each other all that well when we came up with Wardrobe v Pantry. Like all good collaborations, it started with champagne. We met through a friend, and — without sounding like an eHarmony ad — we knew we shared similar interests and found the same things to be funny. At social gatherings, our conversation would inevitably drift to what we were wearing, what we were eating, and what exactly we imagined Beyoncé would be up to at that moment in time.
Before long, we organised a champagne meeting to discuss starting a blog together. We even brought a pen. Trouble was, although we wanted to start a blog, we had little idea of what the content should be.
We bandied around some ideas:
“So, I really like clothes.”
“Yea. Clothes are great…”
“Yea, you know, like fashion…”
“Um. Let’s order more champagne and snacks! It will help us think!”
It wasn’t a strong start. But things soon started to evolve.
