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.

The latest showing here of Project Runway had designer Michael Cors delivering the coup de grace to a misconceived jumpsuit by asking, "And what's with the belt matching the shoes? All she [the model] needed was a purse!"
"I agree," chimed in host Heidi Klum. "That's a little old farty-farty."
So I've heard. But I love matching, toning, complementing, contrasting, because I love one part of an outfit "speaking" to another. But I guess that makes me, fashion-wise, a lost cause.
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.
