There's a new blog in town fashion-lovers will want to bookmark: Jake Thompson's Fashionasty. Well, technically it's not "new" - the humorous, fashion-trash-culture blog offers Thompson's musings on all that is fabulous has been going on for awhile now, but the Minnesota native has just returned home after spending a few years in New York City, where he worked as a producer’s assistant on the TV show Ugly Betty for two seasons.
This sample text shows Jake's signature, amusing turn-of-phrase:
The world is ur oyster, so make like Grace Jones: snap into a raw amuse-bouche aphrodisiac, get outta ur clam, and get center stage. Life is wasted on the boring and the safe, so hone ur inner fashionasty and get on the plates of foodies worldwide. Don’t just make them hungry, make them salivate over you.
