Dear Sarah Jessica Parker, Thank you for your oddly worded manifesto about bloggers, as seen on The Budget Fashionista. While it's admirable that you want to make clothing for "people all over the country," it's insulting to think that those people who appreciate you and your work don't appreciate great design - the design sadly missing from your collection. By saying that "there's no criticism a person can make" about your clothing line, you imply that women around the country should somehow feel privileged to wear your line of $7 basics as if they were a second skin. Second skin which we haven't seen you wear, because you're photographed in designer clothes all around New York. And when you do deign to wear your clothing line, you'll look amazing, because you'll have a hairstylist, a makeup artist, and at least five years with a personal trainer behind you. Don't forget the Manolos - how much were those again? We don't think you should apologize for your amazing style, your success, or your wardrobe - it's inspired many women and it's amazing. But please don't pretend that you're "just like us," that every woman in a flyover state is thrilled to wear your line, that this is a charity project instead of a way to keep you visible in American pop culture. Maybe the real problem with design in America isn't the lack of cheap blouses, it's the way mass retailers condescend to their shoppers? You are right that every woman should "feel good when they go to an interview and they can still pay their utilities and they can still take care of their children or buy a present for a friend." We just wish your new clothing line supported that idea a little more. The normal women whom you champion so strongly deserve it.
