Many of you will recall the rebuke Andy Sachs(Anne Hathaway) earns in the film The Devil Wears Prada from her boss Miranda Priestly(Meryl Streep) about the route taken by cerulean from when Oscar de la Renta presented his first collection in that color until much later, when it appeared as the reason’s color in department stores all over the world, representing millions of dollars to the fashion industry.

Since I have started dressing in the PUG/Vintage style again I have noticed something: People treat me with more respect. Now, I do not mean to indicate that people were disrespecting me before.

I even had a couple of girls accuse me of holding out of them, I would never! haha. After working on my outfit round-up blog post for the…Continue
