NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Many ladies love their handbags and will spend a lot of money for the latest and greatest, but a new study says what is inside those bags may be covered in germs worse than what you’ll find in the bathroom.
About five minutes into reading a diary-of-a-fashion-student-esque article on Fashionista, I found the bit of stereotypical, closed-minded advice that perpetuates the idea that you need to be skinny (read: stop eating, STAT) to be in fashion, no matter your focus.
The article has some great advice for fashion school, like yes, you're probably going to cry a trillion times and no, you're not entitled to a full-time job once your three unpaid internships are complete and yes, creepy party promoters will try to get in your pants. But buried in the article's 9th slide about your impending (and involuntary) addiction to coffee, is that you should budget about $8 per month for solid food, because that's how much two boxes of crackers cost.
Sure, food gives you energy–but not as much as a venti latte does. And that is the type of energy you’ll need to juggle three internships, two jobs, and twenty credits. So hopefully you like coffee, because you are about to spend a lot of money on it. If you try to bunk this rule freshman year by purchasing your own coffee machine, prepare to engage in a game of cat and mouse with your RA–they are contraband in the FIT dorms ... Believe me when I say that this would not be fun for most people—I’m not normal, and therefore, wouldn’t recommend it. Just go to Starbucks and eat some crackers if you need some solid food.
Well this is awkward because I just ate two slices of pizza and I'm doing okay. Do you think there's anything wrong with this sentiment, or am I just being overly sensitive?
