Kell on Advice: Must-Read for Bloggers 3/1/10

3/01/2010


i know i just wrote a post, but i'm actually listening to my favorite
morning show, the Elvis Duran show on Y100, and they are
interviewing Kelly Cutrone. this is so great!

the advice that she is dishing out is so true. she isn't really a
mean bitch (as she is portrayed on tv). she is actually quite smart
and really funny. i did always find her hilarious. she even told a caller
that she'd hook her up with an in in the PR world.

i love what she has to say about young people following their dreams and
remembering their childhood in order to determine what they really want to do
in life--what will really make them happy.

i like how she says that when a door closes on an opportunity, it is better
to look at the glass half full, or as she proclaims:
"...god floating in and trying to take us to somewhere new."

Kelly also tells a caller that if she wants to get her foot in the door
with her fashion journalism career that she should start
writing a blog (check);
try to intern at a small magazine that she likes (in the process);
and then in a couple of years she should be where she wants to be.
i don't think truer words were ever spoken.
and the advice she gives is relevant whether you want
to be in fashion or not. basically, if you only
get one thing from this interview it should be
that you stay true to your dreams and work hard
to reach them.

if you'd like to hear the interview then go here.
Or go here for a review of her book.
I just bought it on my Nook!

What do you think about Kelly Cutrone or fashion blogging in general?

  1. Weird new post form...

    I like that lady too, she keeps it real, but in the right way.

    You know I like your fashion, so all you need is a magazine and you'll have your own show called "Cheryl on Earth"

  8. the best thing we can do is encourage others to follow there dream. most times it doesnt mean anything if it isnt coming from someone who hasnt already made it.
    so the best thing those of us who are still trying to do the same is support one another!

  9. I watched the first episode, but I haven't been able to catch the others. I really love the show, and I think Kelly is awesome even though people think she's scary or a bitch. I want to read her book.

    And to reply to your lovely comment about the H&M dress, I do remember seeing the dress in white, and it's really pretty. I would wear it as my reception dress if I was to get married.

  12. Kelly Cutrone? I really do like her, she has her way and she doesn't have to be a bitch about it, it's just get it out there and get it right or so long and that's exactly what people need to think about if they want to survive in the fashion world ♥
