The Coveted Rant

OK, so I'm not the best fashion blogger in the world. In fact, sometimes I do things and forget (or am too lazy) to "cover" them. It happens.

Long story short, one fashion week I was able to go to the IFB Evolving Influence panel discussion, and it was amazing. All of the heavy hitters were on the panel, and I learned a lot of technical marketing type stuff if I really wanted to 'monetize' my blog. This is certainly not my full time job, so I just absorbed everything and took notes, but I didn't put too much into practice.

At the panel I was blown away by the elegance and poise of Ms. Jennine from The-Coveted. She's just a really cool, smart lady who is as chic sartorially as she is whipsmart with business acumen.

That's one of the many reasons I'm so disheartened and sad to hear of her latest woes surrounding a group of people that are infringing upon her brand. The OTHER Coveted is blah blah blah. Check Refinery for the info if you like, but seriously? I am outraged and cannot support this in the least bit. I was so put off that Daily Candy mentioned it today, that I might cancel my subscription to their email newsletter. You can read about her response here.

Basically I'm just writing this post to say, "BOO!!" And I think you should know about it, and I think you should be anti-, too.

Just my $0.02.

ETA: Petition up here. Or buy some bad ass Wendy Brandes rings, and Wendy will donate cash to Jennine. I don't have the cash, nor the occasion to wear a ring that says, "F@#!" but it's pretty cool.

There's also a regular donation button on my blog, so you can donate legal funds without buying jewelry!
