If u do not have confidence, half a brain and a dollar in nyc — you are basically fucked.

"We’re constantly getting these messages to mind our own business and look the other way if we want to be well liked, to not tell the truth or speak our mind or say anything too intense. Well, I’m telling you here that this approach not only makes you party to other people’s crimes against themselves but is a prescription for mediocrity and delusion."

"Do your best and become as successful as you can because the more powerful you become, the smaller the other person gets, right? So it’s like the bigger you are, the better you become, the less power other people have over you. The best thing to do is to always compete with yourself and not to compete with others. The only thing you can control is your own performance and what you’re doing to yourself and with yourself. You also have to be careful about how you handle it, because you never know. That one cunt-y person could become the new Editor-In-Chief. Sometimes the nasty person wins. That’s why it’s always good to compete against yourself."

I’m publicly proclaiming my crush for Kelly Cutrone. The line forms behind me, fellas.
I just logged into this Tumblr and found out we somehow got 500 followers in the last 2 months while I didn’t update this thing. Woops! Also, submit your Kelly Cutrone quotes HERE.
"I think the best thing to do is just know that there’s a big difference between style and fashion, and that one doesn’t necessarily have anything to do with the other. I think people should stop and get off the train. I think they should look at things, and they should sit like a king on a throne and let everything pass by them. They should practice the art of discernment, and they should do that with their dollar, and they should do it with their eye, and they should do it with their ear, and do it with their mouth, and they should do it with every one of their senses. And they should really sit there, and they should make up their own fucking minds. They should do it about government, and they should do it about their art, and they should it about their clothes, and about their music, about their foods. You decide. If you dig it, dig it. If it’s fashionable to you, then love it and celebrate it."

"I had a talk with myself about my language over the Christmas holiday. And I thought I don’t think I need to say the F-word as much as I do anymore. I think it’s kind of old and outdated. So if you’ve noticed I’ve only said it once so far on the phone call, which is like a record for me. And, so, I’m not trying to do it like to be different or to grow up, I just thought I don’t know if it’s effective because I say it all the time. So I’m trying to rethink the use of the F-bomb"
