"We Need A Bigger Well Of Fug To Pull From"
WC: And you hope they don't, because they might cut you.
H: I would take that cut, because it would be a really good story if, like, Ashley Olsen jumped up and took a shiv to my arm or something. I'd be like, "All right, that hurts, but that's going to be fun later."
WC: You're getting stitched up and telling the doctor, "Write 'Ashley' in the stitches."
H: I am in no way encouraging anybody to do that.
J: You know what, we're down there with all the other journalists, and we've been doing it enough that I do think people know who we are. But I don't really think anybody is paying attention to us.
H: No, I don't either. I think it's entirely possible that one of the socialites has figured out that the girl in the red coat skulking around, looking at her and trying to figure out who she is, is someone she hasn't seen until we started writing. So who knows. I, for the most part, think they're in their own world, and that's the way it should be.
J: I think everyone there is either doing their own job, or worried about their own shit.
WC: So: leggings.
J: Oh, leggings.
WC: You're on a holy campaign against leggings.
H: I'm not really on board.
J: I'm not on board with the leggings.
WC: Every time I see someone in them, I'm like, "Still?"
H: It's actually on our business cards: "Authors, Bloggers, Crusaders Against Leggings."
J: Like...tights. Wear tights!
H: People try to defend them by saying they add warmth in the winter.
J: But so do tights!
WC: Here's my theory about the leggings. And you can tell me, since you're experts, if you think I'm right. Getting back to What Not To Wear, I feel like there were several seasons where it was very easy for people of all shapes and sizes to get dressed. It was like, wrap top, flared mid-rise jeans, you're set.
WC: And then the fashion industry saw that and was like, "We gotta put a stop to this."
WC: "It's gonna be leggings, and those fucking blousy Empire tops that make everyone look pregnant, and skinny jeans, which are the leggings of jeans."
J: They are the leggings of jeans. About your theory, I don't know -- I think it's just one of those things where fashion's really cyclical, and leggings have been out for so long that I think someone was like, "Yes, leggings."
