Auntie Fashion

I’m the fashion world’s most-enduring muse.

Fashion Magazine

I should probably review this magazine, but I’ll save that for another day.  Danielle at finalfashion mentioned this contest a while ago, but I didn’t actually visit the contest site until yesterday.  It seems like a fun idea.  Fashion Magazine is looking for ten bloggers to keep Canada updated on their local fashion scenes.  The winning bloggers will get $1200 for twenty-four posts that will run bi-monthly over the next year.  It’s not much, but since most bloggers work for free, it’s enough to buy a shiny, new computer or a nice pair of winter boots at Gucci.

I was going to enter, but I don’t believe Fashion magazine would make me a semi-finalist.  I’m too much of a know-it-all, and some people find that threatening.   I can’t say that I blame them.  I shake in my own presence when I think about how fabulous I am.

I also can’t shut my trap when it comes to how much I loathe Fashion File since Adrian Mainella took over the hosting duties.  Because the magazine and the TV show are in a partnership, I imagine I’d get into a little trouble if they realized that Prunella Crudsworth is Auntie Fashion.

So I’m just going to stick to this blog.  My post about Behati Prinsloo has seen about fifteen-hundred hits so far, and a few others have got a lot of attention, too — especially my interviews with CariDee and Simon Doonan.

I’m happy to be blogging for free, anyway.  It allows me to be the rebel that I want to be.  Getting paid to write a blog about antifashion would be sort of hypocritical, anyhow.  If I’m trying to protest the commercialization of the art that is fashion in this blog, I’d be an idiot to ask for a paycheque to do it.
