American Apparel Sells Out – Literally!!!

December 19, 2006

It’s no secret that I am and always have been a supporter of purported mega-pervert Dov Charney and his casual clothing chain, American Apparel — despite the fact that the seams on my clothing from them sometimes unravel — so my reaction to to the news of American Apparel being sold to Endeavor Acquisition Corporation for $382.5 million is, well…mixed.

I like Dov so on one hand, I am very happy for him and any success he encounters in life. And, just like a Starbucks of the t-shirt world, American Apparel is already on every street corner so it’s not as if AA is some obscure little secret that is going to be leaked out to the rest of the TRL-watching world. Also, with more backup funding available for production costs, maybe the quality of clothing will increase but I can’t help but wonder “at what cost?”. Since both companies refuse to comment on the details of the transaction, I can only speculate. For me, a lot of AA’s appeal came from the fact that everything was made in the good ol’ U.S. of A — my hometown, specifically…while Endeavor is known to farm out their work overseas. I am hoping that the former will not change.

I guess only time will tell.

Mary Kate Olsen’s New Platinum Blonde Look

December 19, 2006

Sooo, my new style-wife Mary-Kate Olsen has a new platinum blond look and I’m not quite sure how I feel about it…since I’m team brunette, I might have to trade her in for her darker haired sister – just kidding! Regardless of how her hair looks, her fashion sense is still on point, as always.

I’m just hella busy! I have been overloaded with freelance assignments and have been developing content for my new gig as Teen Fashion Guide for About.com in addition to my usual workload at Metro.Pop, Fashion Tribes and (occasionally) Refinery29. To all of my readers and advertisers, I’m sorry for abandoning you but I am BACK and have a lot of things in the works so it’s going to be better than ever around here — just wait and see, 2007 is going to be off the hook!!!!

I LOVE ALL OF YOU!!!!!!
