Recently, GQ.com posted this article hailing the return of the FLARE! Anyone who really knows me knows that this is my look, and I can’t wait for fall because I have been HOARDING bootcut, stovepipe, flared trousers for years now. I adore this silhouette and shall be WORKING it during my book tour. I especially like looks 1 and 3.
I’m so over the tyranny of the short skinny trouser, shrunken blazer, and the JEGGING ON MEN.

Last night I attended the finale of America’s Next Top Model Cycle Five. I’m a reluctant fan of the show. I believe the girls that become the second runner-up are the ones that should win. I am a fan of Elyse, Kahlen, Mercedes, Shandi, and Shannon. This season was all about Bre Scullark. Bre was like the girls I grew up with in Chicago. Fabulous, a touch ghetto, pretty, and oh so real. Whenever she was on screen, I was riveted. Though I didn’t see a win in Bre’s future, she made it to the final three. Robbed. Victory snatched from her grasp. I love how she kept it real until the very end. When she lost, the heels came off, and the glasses went back on. You must never forget in your travels who you are. She did not. Tonight my mission was to meet her. I did, and she was just as I hoped she would be. Sublime.
