A List of Today’s Pet Peeves

Here are a few things that pissed me off today

  • It’s really annoying when people who have no style tell me I look good. First of all, yes, I know I look good because I dressed myself this morning. Second of all, if you can recognize good style on me but can’t execute it yourself, then what are you doing? Stop worrying about what I’m doing and fix your own damn self. Thirdly, it’s just creepy and weird. I refuse to indulge it, mostly because what the fuck do you want from me? You’re clearly not here to have a conversation with my about style, fashion, designers, clothing, etc. Whatever it is you want, I’m not giving it because that’s not how I roll.
  • Black comedy and black humor are not the same thing, and that’s weird.
  • Everyone always hates on that Naomi Campbell quote where she said she doesn’t get out of bed for less than $10,000 a day. Sure, there’s a lot to unpack around how racist the fashion industry was to Naomi Campbell, but also, what the fuck, this is exactly what people say about sports players. Oh, the models are overpaid. Oh, the athletes are overpaid. But no one ever says, oh, the NFL team owners are overpaid or the fashion house owners are overpaid. It’s easy to point at someone like Naomi Campbell, who is very public facing and is a product in her own right, and hate her for making what to us is a lot of money. But relative to the fashion industry as whole, is she overpaid or are the rest of us just settling for peanuts? I’m not a hater. One day I aspire to only get out of bed for $10,000 a day, but I’m no Naomi Campbell so I’m gonna keep my day job.
