Christina Lindsay of Fashion's Most Wanted is one of the busiest and most gracious of blog writers this one has met. I discovered Christina's blog this year from the House of Beauty and Culture- (affectionately known as HOBAC). Since HOBAC is one of those blogs I hold sacred and dear-whatever is recommended from that quarter I leap to.
a glimpse from Mrs Jones lookbook
I was not disappointed. Christina is a wonderful interviewer-being one of my favorite things to do as well-I am always studying the work of others. Two of my very favorite posts of hers are an interview with the fashion designer Mrs. Jones and a post Christina calls Me and Mrs Jones. These two damsels are friends- longstanding & great friends and it shows in these two stories.
I was taken with the friendship and the warmth of the interplay between the two. The interview introduces us to a woman doing things- not always smoothly- but Her Way and succeeding gloriously. I was captivated. Not to mention all the photographs Christina put together for the post- it is a fashion smash hit from the 80's and 90's!

Do not miss this story.
another wonderful interview from Christina is one with Julie Newmar. The interview came about when CL pronounced Ms. Newmar the best Catwoman ever ( I concur) & JN contacted her with thanks.
