Kelly Cutrone in Australia...

I just read on the Vogue Forums that Kelly Cutrone was in Australia for the launch of Gideon Shoes. She also attended book signings and graciously spent several minutes with each of her fans writing them personalised messages...

To say that I'm a little heartbroken is an understatement. I would have hopped on a plane to Sydney with my tattered copy of her book to be signed in a heart beat. If you haven't read her book, I suggest you do. Especially if you're deviating off the school-uni-work-mortgage-etc path (that's just my choice, this is a great choice for many people ).. basically her book was like listening to my parents advice in reverse.

Not many people are going to really tell you to do what you want with life and mean it. Really they'll most likely suggest the most boring degree to complete (in case you're wondering it's economics) so you can get a stable job (government) at the end of it. But no one will ever tell you that that's so so very boring. Kelly probably would. That's why you should read her book. (Don't bother with Borders, not many physical stores have copies. Try the bookdepository)

Maybe when I'm in New York in a few weeks for my Wikifashion meetup I might run into her? Perhaps I can park my motorhome outside People's Revolution and pop in for a quick chat...(that would be hilarious).

PS. Just looked at the book depository and she has a new book up for pre-order, "Normal Gets You Nowhere").


  1. Thanks for the book rec, I am definitely going to give it a read! <3

  2. I still haven't read her book, gah.
    It's definitely on the 'To Do' list.
    A gf at work sent me a text last night saying her friend had met Ms Cutrone.
    I am still seething with jealousy haahhaahaa
