Auntie Fashion

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

It’s nice to have disciples . . .

My friend, fashion designer Adrienne Butikofer (who should be preparing for Maple Fashion Week), took time out of her busy schedule to send me a photo of this fabulous Zob sweatshirt she found on Etsy.  And check out the way the model is working that hood!

While some religions forbid their followers to indulge in overt displays of their faith, as the high priestess of Zobism your old Auntie Fashion applauds such obvious devotion.  In fact, the only thing that would please me more is a conspicuous Zob tattoo on an upper arm or even a forehead.

On a more solemn note, we’re about two weeks away from the twenty-year anniversary of the day that the spirit of the goddess herself was wrested from my body while I watched Marc Jacobs‘ infamous “Grunge” show for Perry Ellis on November 3, 1992.  The last thing I remember was seeing Tyra Banks sashaying down the runway, trying her best to do “Seattle” instead of “Inglewood.”  Then everything went dark . . .

On the bright side, the Zobpocalypse is nigh, and the signs are everywhere!  The luxury market is starting to show signs of weakness.  Tom Ford now has a child, as the prophecy has foretold.  And, most importantly, “America’s Next Top Model” was just renewed for a twentieth cycle so that it will be able to compete with “The Face.”  Somehow an epic battle between Tyra and Naomi Campbell has to figure into this scenario.  They’re the Optimus Prime and Megatron of our generation, although I’m still not quite sure which one is which.  Only time will tell!

Oh, and there’s one other sign.  I want to buy something I saw on Etsy.  You know we’ve fallen down the rabbit hole when . . .
