Worst Dressed

GQ Magazine just ranked the Top 40 Worst Dressed Cities in America and lucky #31 goes to...that's right you guessed it, Detroit!

"We don't kick people when they're down, and we don't mock their dress when times are tough. Few cities have been hit harder in the decade past than Detroit. But it's not the poor and unfortunate that are the prime offenders in the D. No, it's the moneyed that singe our eyes and steal our souls. Consider disgraced former mayor Kwame Kilpatrick and his penchant for pinstripes, broad-shouldered suiting, and unbearably prideful cigar-chomping. A city weeps from hardship, while fat cats sully a once-proud town's blue collar grit with fat, ungainly lapels."—Sean Fennessey

Damn-it-all if that Kwame Kilpatrick won't stop bringing our city down. 

Despite being voted the #31 worst dressed city in America, my husband and I powered through our tears and did some shopping.  I apparently am really into wild animal prints and colors this season.  My husband of course is sticking with the classics, black and plaid. 

Style and fashion are 100% in the eye of the beholder so I'm willing to take this news with a grain of salt.
