I read Teresa
Baker’s letter to the editor regarding your “My Style” column (Letters,
9/12). I applaud the editor’s comments about fashion creating millions
of jobs and how it colors our world. I have a few comments to add.
I’m sorry that you have such a problem with what some people will pay
for an outfit. I have to say that I can only agree with you if we knew
that these people were walking around in $400+ outfits while their
children were unfed and their bills unpaid. But, for the sake of your
comments and mine we don’t know that. Just like any reality TV show the
“My Style” column is a voyeuristic look into other people’s lives and
was created solely for entertainment purposes. If you weren’t so
entertained you wouldn’t look at it every week.
I have a couple of questions for you...
