On the tenth day of Christmas...

Thursday, December 10, 2009

...More inspiration! One of the things we really, truly enjoy in life (besides handbags, Lanvin and "Glee" ... we can't be the only one who cried at last night's fall finale?), is Cintra Wilson's "Critical Shopper" column in the NYT. It never fails to be equal parts hilarious, insightful and intellgent... much like the woman herself, it turns out. Our friend Johanna snagged a fab interview with Cintra for her blog on It's full of awesome gems. For example (when asked how she'd blow 5K at Barneys):
"For the record, I have never in my life had 5K to blow at Barneys, but if I did, I’d probably end up buying something boring, sensible, indestructible thing that I thought would last the rest of my life for about 2K… and then I’d buy all my Christmas presents.

If there was a gun to my head and I was forced to be frivolous and self-indulgent, I’d head right for the Rick Owens, Lanvin and Givenchy and probably end up with a long, bruise-colored garment, platform bondage boots and/or some tarted-up variation on a big black bowling bag."

The whole interview is a must-read for aspiring fashion writers (um, and we so can't wait for her upcoming book). Enjoy!
