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

Cosmically Chic

Everyone who reads this blog knows that I’m into astrology, yet I don’t really spend a lot of time discussing the topic much.  But yesterday was such a weird day that I had to share it with you, my adoring fans.

I devoted a few too many bitter pages on this blog to “Fashion File Host Hunt” and the subsequent cancellation of “Fashion File.”  I hadn’t heard much about Adrian Mainella since the show tanked, and I was surprised yesterday to read that he’s designing for a furs with Izzy Camilleri for a line called IZMA.  I didn’t blame Mainella personally when “Fashion File” bit the big one, and I tried to avoid making personal attacks against the winner of “Host Hunt.”  But if there’s one surefire way to get on my bad side it’s this: Become a fur designer.  I don’t care how “green” and “sustainable” your line is.  Everyone who copies it will be torturing animals.  It’s barbaric in any guise.  Adrian Mainella, now I don’t like you.

Just a few hours after that, I ran into an old friend who actually produced my TV pilot that I figured would be my ace-in-the-hole at my own “Host Hunt” audition.  I figured that if someone like that was willing to take a chance on me, then the “Host Hunt” producers would see something, too.  I was wrong.  Anyway, my old friend and I reconnected and talked about a new project.

Not long afterward, I got a weird comment on my blog directed to “Host Hunt” finalist Henrietta Southam.  It was from a childhood friend of Southam’s mother from Norway who was trying to reconnect with her old friend.  I became a fan and a friend of Henrietta during the broadcast of “Host Hunt,” where she lost to Mainella.  I emailed her and set the reunion in motion.  That wouldn’t have happened if I had never blogged about her.

Within a couple of hours, these three incidents occured.  It was all sort of weird, and a little too weird to seem like a coincidence.  I feel as if fate is trying to pull me in a different direction than I was headed.  Between my wretched experience at “Teen Vogue” and my rejection at the hands of the producers of “Fashion File Host Hunt,” I felt like I needed to turn my back on the world of fashion.  This blog brought me back to fashion, and now I’m seeing some events from my past in a clearer light.

Maybe this is where I belong.  I might make fun of my own “insider” status here on Auntie Fashion, but the truth is that I’ve always been a fashion outsider.  Still, for the last couple of months I’ve felt as if the cosmos were about to hand me a key.  Yesterday’s string of coincidences just confirmed that feeling.  Weird!
