what’s going on?

What’s going on? What’s going on in social media, and what’s going on in the world of the Instagrammers, bloggers, fashion, beauty, and style writers? You may not want to follow these people, but I still do. While I spend less time on social media than I used to I’m unable, or unwilling, to give it up entirely. Old dogs, new tricks, blah blah.

So here are three people I have feelings about.

I’ll start with the bad news. One of the first bloggers I started following, from her very start, was Garance DoréOh, how I loved her.

I loved her style, her freckles, her insouciance!

She was a fashion photographer for God’s sake, and she was from Corsica! And like all proper French persons, she used to wield a mean and sexy cigarette.

I loved her. I loved that she was so reluctantly French, an all-in New Yorker for a time, and not exactly lucky in love. But then she moved to L.A… 

I admit to a strong preference for everything East Coast, so from the start I didn’t want to accept Doré’s move. I predicted bad things. And damned if I wasn’t right. I think she moved to the West Coast partially due to a man, and maybe that was the problem? I think she has a tendency to move for men.
