Fashionistas Beware

“Women who follow fashion too closely run a great risk: losing their deeper nature, their style, their natural elegance.” -Yves Saint Laurent

Everyone by now knows that I love fashion. I made it my career and it is part of who I am, it is part of my environment, and it imbues my life with great joy. I have tried to share my love of fashion with my friends, family and through my work. No apologies.

I do agree with Yves however that being a slave to fashion is totally uncool and shallow. There is a difference between genuinely loving to dress-up or create a wonderful environment than trying to keep-up-with-the-Joneses or to be noticed for the sake of being noticed.

I wonder what Yves would think about Instagram? Would he think of it as a wonderful, creative and collaborative platform or would he think of people over-pleading the case?
