Best Quote Ever

January 7, 2009
“Fashion is as profound and critical a part of the social life of man as sex, and is made up of the same ambivalent mixture of irresistible urges and inevitable taboos.”

~ René König (1906-1992), German Sociologist and author of The Restless Image: A Sociology of Fashion

(and yes, I jacked this from Clutch)

Now where do I find this book?

Update:  FOUND IT!


My blog’s new home is up; you should go there.

    I’ve been eyeing those strappy sneakers on Karmaloop for a while now. I’m thinking about copping those or this other pair I saw.
