British It girl Alexa Chung is on the cover of British Vogue this month.
In an interview, she continued the tradition of insider-y fashion people adored by fashion bloggers saying random-ass things about fashion blogs. She said:
“Blogs are ridiculous; they’re just mood boards — unless you are Tavi.”
Hmmm! I thought this blog lacked the collages of movie stills, photos of roses and shoes, and gauzy images of beautiful young women holding cigarettes that would qualify it for mood board status. In fact, I don’t do mood boards for jewelry designs, though I do dog-ear a lot of pages in history books. Gorgeous teen blogger Tavi, however, has plenty of mood-board posts. She’s about the only one whose mood boards I enjoy. Maybe that is what Alexa is trying to say? “You’re all just mood boards, unless you are Tavi and then you are a KICK-ASS mood board.” Yeah, that must be it. I’m sure Alexa checks in with 100 blogs a day, just like I do, so she knows whereof she speaks!
But Alexa once wore my Matilda sword necklace in Marie Claire so I have to forgive her.
Here’s a contest: if any of you mood-board-loving bloggers makes me an awesome collage of movie stills, roses, shoes and pensive models holding cigarettes, I’ll post it here along with an interview of you, like the one I did with Sheila, the winner of my Loverboy contest.
