Chelsea Handler (Apparently) Also Has Haters

In my recent post from Wednesday, I discussed my liking of comedian Chelsea Handler's fashion sense on her late night show, "Chelsea Lately." As the Good Girl Gone Shopping, I enjoy learning about other people's fashion sense. And whether you agree with what I like or not; I still respect your opinion.

...So this blog post is not dedicated to my friends who inspire me day in and day out (I already wrote about that, and you know who you are!); it is for a recent comment by someone who chose to remain "Anonymous." This person also inspires me to continue sharing my diary with the world.

Here is his or her comment to "Chelsea Handler Has a Handle on Her Style":

"I'm not sure what Fashion Style she is supposed to represent? It's obvious that someone else dresses her and that atrocious black dress she was wearing the other night looked like a freaking reject from the 80's.However, if you think Jillian Barberie Reynolds is a fashion icon then I am a total loss for words. (gah!) I think I wil stick with REAL fashion icons but nice try, I guess for the trailer park crowd."

To which I replied:

"OK, so "Anonymous," I LOVE when people disagree about fashion. It's so stimulating! I never dared use the word "icon" when it comes to Jillian Barberie or Chelsea Handler. Feel free to re-read my post. My opinion is this, for a female talk show host who has big-time competition, I think she looks great. Period. Does Jillian Barberie know a little something about fashion? Of course! But the way she chooses to wear her outfits aren't always savvy enough for the morning audience. And also like you said, there is a stylist behind each of those what? Then maybe instead of attacking them, a little research on who their stylist is would be a fabulous move.Thank you for reading my blog post, and being so opinionated. I'm doing something right!"

Do you agree with my response?

Just as I will chat about Chelsea Handler, I will chat about Anna Wintour, and chat about any other public fashion figure that I deem interesting and appealing.

You're response shows your a true journalist! Have you ever noticed that we tend to make amazing argumentative writers? That keen sense of supporting your stance intellegently, without attacking others, comes from some great training at CSUF. As a classy person you even found the positives in peron's negative comments and applauded them for that, well done Titan!
