RIP George Michael

2016 has sucked major ass. First David Bowie, then Prince, and now George Michael. I am highly annoyed. 

I loved Wham! and I loved George Michael's solo stuff. Still do. 

Can we talk about "Freedom '90" and the impression that it left on me? I was 10 years old. I saw that video and wanted to be Linda Evangelista and Christy Turlington: tall with awesome hair and makeup. Still do.

"Freedom '90" was shot in an era when there Supermodels and no Instagram. His videos were so fashion forward. 

I thought "Too Funky" was so original. Thierry Mugler designed my dream pre-teen wardrobe. Only after watching "The Graduate" in 1999 did I realize that this was the film with clips in a George Michael video. My favorite film and one of my favorite songs.

George Michael's music was unapologetic and raw like him. 

Godspeed, George Michael.

Franca Sozzani Is Gone

Franca Sozzani, the editor in chief of Vogue Italia has died.

Her magazine is what I used as a study guide during my Italian lessons. I also loved how through provoking Vogue Italia was because of her. It was sort of like stylized photojournalism.

She will be missed.

Why Is This A Trend?

I really wish fashion writers would stop telling me how to dress like a French girl. 

I know, athleisure is boring to write about. So is this evergreen story. I wonder if French women laugh at us when they see these articles. 

Are they disgusted or annoyed? How do you say, "Get a life" in French. Do they get the feeling that I get when the office copycat comes in on Monday wearing the same exact outfit that I wore on Friday? 

Here are four examples:

J.Crew Ain't Feeling Too Hot

J. Crew isn't doing to fab. 

Not surprising. The styles are a bit hit or miss. They don't last long. Some of their salespeople tend to fat shame when assisting you. It happened to me in May in the Soho location. 

The short sleeve cotton shirtdress is not worth $70 or $98. I bought it and wore it. I gotta say, not one of my favorite dresses. The office copycat knew it was from J.Crew, which makes me want to set it on fire. 

Good luck fixing yourselves, J.Crew. Dig yourself out of that chambray and Italian tortoise-filled debt.

The Sexual Revolution of the 70s and the venues where all the magic happened is captured in this new collection.
