At 8pm, Wednesday February 16th, 2011 Haute Faux Sure was born. She hopes to be a safe haven for self-expression in the fashion world and the real world, a place where things are neither too bold nor too tame. Fashion should never be about finances and if you have enough to get enough or look the part. It should be about creating a look and more importantly igniting ideas and creativity within one another. The fashion industry should be a place for admiration not envy, respect and not judgment, helpful opinions and not harsh criticism. In this blog there will be an etiquette when discussing all garments, for example cheap becomes inexpensive, inspired substitutes knocked off, and investment and/or statement piece is a nicer way to say that you spent the same amount as your rent check or mortgage payment, without really spending your rent check or your mortgage payment, we hope. Along with fashion I will also blog about my personal experiences, the good, the bad and the ugly...and yes sometimes it's not dressed to a "T" and doesn't have make up on. So here is to the beginning of something haute, faux sure.
This first installment is dedicated to Kelly Framel and Jenna Lyons because one day we'll be great friends and play checkers together in Washington Square Park.
