So, staying here at the in-laws', I'm reading a lot of stuff I normally wouldn't (they get awesome magazines), and therefore am seeing a lot of information I normally wouldn't. This morning, I was flipping through the September 14 issue of New Yorker, and there's a one-page interview with Anna Wintour.
For those of you not in the know, Anna Wintour is the editor of Vogue (the real one), arbiter of fashion, decider-upon of all things cool, and - rumor has it - the inspiration for The Devil Wears Prada. With all this in mind, I sat down to see what Ms. Wintour had to say about modern fashion and what I'm supposed to do about it. And there it was.
"I get a few key pieces each season and wear them a lot." Emphasis mine, because she's saying the same damn thing the rest of us have been saying. (Those italics are also mine.) Remember, this is a woman whose entire reputation rides on looking good, and stylish, every stinkin' day. Then, further along in the interview, "...how many handbags? How many shoes? How much of a thing does everyone really need?"
Thank you, Ms. Wintour. I and my fellow hand-knitters can be found, gloating over drinks, in the kitchen.
