The LoLo Beta Avatar

Not Goodbye, Hello!

I’m writing this post to inform all that the LoLo Beta will not be receiving regular posts going forward, as the admin, founder, and all around awesome gal who owns it (that’s me!) is taking a break to focus on her freelance clients.

I’ve enjoyed reading comments, questions and adore each one of the shares and likes the Tumblr community provided while LoLo Beta was live!

I can’t wait to promote what I come up with next. I’m keeping this online at Tumblr, so my clients and potential new clients can view the work I’ve done here. Feel free to peruse through past posts, full of style quotes and videos.

Again, thanks so much, and when I get the next blog(s) live, I will post them!

Cheers!

Have an amazing day.

But if his idea were correct, discovering when the body louse diverged from the head louse would provide a rough date for when people first invented and wore clothing. The subject was anything but frivolous: donning a garment is a complicated act. Clothing has practical uses—warming the body in cold places, shielding it from the sun in hot places—but it also transforms the appearance of the wearer, something that has proven to be of inescapable interest to Homo sapiens. Clothing is ornament and emblem; it separates human beings from their earlier, un-self-conscious state. (Animals run, swim, and fly without clothing, but only people can be naked.) The invention of clothing was a sign that a mental shift had occurred. The human world had become a realm of complex, symbolic artifacts.
