writes about clothes, shoes, hair, make-up, accessories, fashion - anything that's appearance-related, and a good deal else, because appearances are just the beginning.

More fashion speak
Yes, it's probably just a figure of speech but I'm sorry, it gets right up my nose when people say, "I'm all about X."
See, for instance, the latest portrait from Street and City Photos. Says the portrayed, without a perceptible quiver of irony, "I'm all about vintage".
Are you? Really? Absolutely all about it and not about anything else at all?
I'm a writer. Sometimes I write fiction and sometimes I'd rather do something else, like earn money, travel or dance tango. Whatever I do, I never stop looking. So this blog is about looking to write, writing to see, and seeing to think. I was once the kind of feminist who believed it was wrong to delight in such things. Now I'm the kind of feminist who doesn't believe that at all. I will never, as Linda Grant puts it, go beige into that good night.
