daily dose of irreverence

so today i stumbled on something that everyone has probably known about for a long time [as i often do] but just in case you’re like me and haven’t discovered it yet, i present the hilariousity of fashionindie’s “stuff fashion people like.” if you are truly an ignoramous [aka you have a life and don’t spend your time perusing the internet for amusement aka not me] and haven’t heard of the “stuff white people like” blog, you might want to check that out first.

i love it when people can laugh at themselves, and in the fashion industry i think you have to be able to. because yeah, it can be beautiful and artistic and powerful but it can also be re-fucking-diculous. [jumpsuits, anyone? giant carousels?] here’s a taste.

from stuff fashion people like #8 – marc jacobs:

“If you ever plan to become a fashion person, you must know Marc Jacobs. Granted most of his work is a bit overrated and, true, if you compared him to other big designers, his overall influence to the world of fashion is neligable (unless you consider making “grunge” expensive an accomplishment), but never, ever, under any circumstances say this to a fashion person. Such remarks are considered heresy and could result in a public flogging or worse, expulsion to the standing room section of a New York fashion show.
The best way to reference Jacobs is as gospel. Statements like “Marc F:07 reminded us of the importance of accessories. Praise Marc.” or “Marc S:05 gave new meaning to the mini. Praise Marc.” are acceptable ways to reference the designer while still maintaining your respect for his divinity.”

tee hee. ;)
