I've been perusing the blog Jean Stories occasionally, and this week's "Jeans of the Week" post on the 3x1 white BFs had me wishing I had a great big wad of cash -- I would instantly buy the entire outfit being modeled by Jane: the 3x1s, the Philip Lim cashmere sweater, the Reed Krakoff smoking slipper. ALL OF IT. Just package it up and send it on to me NOW.

It got me to wondering, because I am pretty sure I have worn this outfit at 16, at 25, at 40, and today (although, frankly, at increasing quality and price points). So does this mean I am anti-fashion, because I am so singular in my taste? I recently read an article in Man Repeller that raised the question of style vs fashion on the red carpet, and it made me think that maybe what I love is style, and maybe I don't care so much about fashion. In this distinction, fashion of course is the cutting-edge, Annagybe sort of thing.

Does this distinction -- style vs fashion -- exist? What does it mean that I keep being drawn to the exact same thing? Can one have style without being drawn to fashion? What's it all about, Alfie?
