Some of you may remember Tama Blough, who blogged at CaFleureBon. She also commented here as Tama and was a regular member of the Now Smell This community for quite some time (the image above was her gravatar).
Tama now has terminal cancer. Nina Zolotow, who comments here as SuddenlyInexplicably, is coordinating a fundraiser to help cover Tama's living and health care expenses so she can remain at home as long as possible. If you can help, the details are at GiveForward.
Never, ever confuse what happens on a runway with fashion. A runway is spectacle. It’s only fashion when a woman puts it on. Being well dressed hasn’t much to do with having good clothes. It’s a question of good balance and good common sense.
