greater than art

"Don’t you know that you are working at the place that published some of the greatest artists of the century? Halston, Lagerfeld, de la Renta. And what they did, what they created was greater than art because you live your life in it. Well, not you, obviously, but some people." Stanley Tucci as Nigel in The Devil Wears Prada.

I figured I'd bring Nigel in for some backup on this post. One of the most controversial questions people have about fashion bloggers is are they actually wearing what they're wearing in their posts that day, or are they just dressing up for the sake of dressing up and putting photos online? With the occasional exception of switching in a heel for a flat or putting on lipstick, everything that I show on here is really and truly what I am wearing that day. My friend passed along an article about fashion week attendees titled Who Am I Wearing? Funny You Should Ask (thank you, Ian) who are dressed to impress photographers outside the tents and to advertise for the brands that they're sporting. As the tents go up and NYFW kicks off in a few days, I wanted to address this.While I see the temptation to show up all decked out, I think it's important to clarify, as the Times has done, that this is "Fashion Week Style" and not necessarily pure, everyday "Street Style." Food for thought. I take mine in the form of a Nutella crêpe.
