Curses


Has everyone signed the petition for Team Jennine yet? In the event that the scandal that's rocking the blogging world hasn't reached you, Jennine Jacob of the original The Coveted has had her blog name ripped off by... oh, I don't know -- some jackass whose blog I didn't read anyway. And clearly never will now. The whole sordid episode has already been discussed at length by Sister Wolf, Wendy B, Kingdom of Style, Make Do Style, and so many others, so I'll just add my humble contribution to the growing maelstrom of outrage and leave it at that.

In short, I wish all manner of nastiness upon the perpetrators, including (but not limited to): parking tickets, tax audits, a prolonged visit from their in-laws, clogged drains, alarm clocks that inexplicably go off at 4 am, chronic bad breath, and socks that go missing in the dryer. A curse upon you, thieves! Please feel free to heap your ill-wishes upon the scoundrels in the comments.

Oh, and if you buy Wendy B's fabulous swear rings, she will donate part of the proceeds to help Jennine with her legal fees. Which, in truth, will probably prove to be far more useful than the curses you'll find over here. Not that those aren't fun too.

Great news! Jennine tweeted that she WON! And more info to follow shortly. I'm going to wait and see if she still needs help with legal fees or if the other side is going to be forced to reimburse her. If she does get reimbursed, I will donate any money from those jewelry sales to my friend Charles Nolan's pet cause: http://wendybrandes.com/blog/2011/01/style-interrupted-a-tribute-to-charles-nolan/

I'm still shocked that someone tried SUCH a blatant rip-off. But yay! Jennine won! Good things to happen to awesome bloggers :)

Also, I really love that jacket - excellent thrifting on your part.

And here I thought this post would be about you, wearing a curly, waxed villain moustache.

(PS yeah, those suckers SUCK!)

Someone said...

Oh but Jennine won - knew she would. She was right!

Delurking (can one do that on a blog?) just to say I loved your curses :)

(Also I should probably leave thanks here for firstly discovering Zahira's Boudoir through your blog, and also for reminding me that I like layering skirts, especially frilly ones under plain ones)

So cool that she won. Justice has been done.

And Audi, I love your look from top to toe. It is styling perfection.

WendyB: Thanks for the update! That's great news!

I love this look! (And I'm glad the scoundrel got what he or she deserved)
