I had previously held the belief that fashion, as a visual medium, was best expressed "as is." Any attempt to put it into words usually resulted in something aggravating and dull.
Cintra Wilson, can talk to me about clothes any day.

Thanks for the road trip, Ms. Wilson.

Beware ingesting food and drink

"Finding your style is like finding your God - it's utterly personal.
You find your truths wherever they find you
and you recognize them
because they irresistibly resonate with you."
