A Little Effort...

I may be a little late to the party...may have taken the first sip of the kool-aid...but whatever you want to call it, I'm all about my new obsession that is Tom Ford! The man is a complete and utter genius and the fact that I haven't explored his work prior is downright despicable on my part.

I recently read Tom's interview in Women's Wear Daily where he talks about his reason for leaving the States and heading to Europe to develop his talent. Stating that American fashion is too lack and laid back, where Europeans appreciate glamour and style, Tom felt his American way of life was holding him back from his true potential. A little effort goes a long way he believes...and so do I.

Never did I realize how laid back people have become with their looks, especially in the workplace. Hello, flip flops and ripped jeans anyone. It's almost a little sad how society has shut out social norms when it comes to dressing for certain arenas, ie. the office, a cocktail party, someone's freaking wedding, and on, and on, and on. I definitely can say that I've been a culprit of this tragedy and have decided to put a stop to it once and for all. I must remember that looking the part helps you along the way, and my new found obsession with Tom Ford is clearly having positive effects on my sartorial standards. So far, so good.
