Toothpick? Nah!

I know some folks could give a rip less. But I also know I might raise a few eyebrows.
But I'm a totally geeked J.Crew devotee, or maybe just a total geek. They've clearly made classic their mission statement and by God, they're nailin it. Jenna's put preppy back on the map with a healthy dose of sexy on top.
Incredibly unsuspecting color and fabric combinations of wool, silk, cashmere and denim. Flannel shirts with bow ties, mohair and chambray from some of the finest British and Italian mills.
With RedWing, Timex, Barbour, Belstaff and Sperry collaborations, you'd think the design staff were made up of ex Ralph Lauren alumni with a few random heritage hipsters thrown in for taste.
BUT... I do have one problem. It's the ongoing display of malnourished women models. My God, someone hand these gals an Angus burger or two...DAILY.
I just don't see a jutting pelvis bone or an angular clavicle as chic. Or the appeal of a kneecap so devoid of flesh, it could slice its way through a pair of jeans. Stop focusing solely on sizes
2, 4 and 6 and start struttin some 8s, 10s and 12s. Some of us, my spouse maybe, equate healthy as BIG GIRL, whatta load a crap. Healthy is someone who doesn't starve themselves. Healthy is what it sounds like...H-E-A-L-T-H-Y.
