Food for Thought: Quality over Quantity.

I have about 11 blog post Drafts waiting to be edited and published. Unfortunately, my life and my week have gotten away from me. I want to say that I certainly never presume that my readers NEED me, or that I have to post everyday or someone will become disappointed.

I merely like for this blog to serve as a record of the things I see, do, and appreciate, and I want to keep adding to this treasure trove of information, quotes, pictures, feelings, etc. as they come to me.

I'll catch up this weekend.

In the meantime, I wanted to write this quick post to exalt two recent, excellent examples that remind us all to to think about placing Quality before Quantity, and to remember that conspicuous consumption isn't an attractive quality:

1) Barney's Babble post.
Simon Doonan weighs in and says "We find the whole concept of the IT bag to be very corny and very very last century. When we launch a new bag we would rather talk to you about what makes it great and gorgeous and wantable."

2) Sartorialist post from Milan.

In reference to this lovely Betty Draper/Grace Kelly-esque Milanese woman, Scott writes:
The Best of Milan- quality, elegance, maturity, and refinement.
On a street blinged-out on Cavalli and Dolce this
super subtle look
carried more
strength and dignity
than any other.

And, from my old standby, Women's Wardrobe:
"What care I how chic it be if it not be the best for me?"

Hear! Hear!

The quote from WW is so true! If it doesn't make me feel fabulous then I'm just not going to be into it!
