I think Alabama Chanin (these are photos from her online journal) is doing a wonderful thing. First, she is a creative woman who has made a life that is ethical and conscious as well as beautiful and satisfying to her and her employees. And then she has made decisions to size and shape her life according to her own needs and beliefs and values. This is real luxury...having the life you want that does not hurt or exploit others or the planet. Making the world a better place by the example you set. I like the tone and voice she uses in her books and online journal because it is real....well okay, these models are pretty amazing. I love that short haircut too...maybe my next look?
