Dear View From the Fourth Row, We really didn't want to call you out, but recent events have made it impossible to ignore you. And they've made us wonder if maybe, just maybe, you're not actually a fashion editor - you're an intern, or the little sister of an intern, or perhaps someone who reads The Daily so obsessively, you feel like you could work there. And so, we have a few questions... 1. By fourth row, do you mean "standing"? Your blog is so full of anger and hate, the kind we only feel when we've been on our feet for six hours in stilettos. 2. Do you really think the Top Five restaurants for fashion people are Koi, Pastis, etc? They're great places, but after they opened, we started going to spots that weren't always on Sex and the City. 3. Speaking of Sex and the City, you seem to watch a ton of TV - your knowledge of The Hills is exceptional, and you mention minor characters like Jane Keltner and Emily Weiss a lot on your site. How do you have time for TiVo if you're constantly at Indochine with Banana Republic publicists? 4. Is it really worth it to give up your Fourth Row seat (or the Fourth Row seat you hope to some day have)? When you're exposed, you'll have to forfeit your meetings with Sarah Jessica Parker, your SWAG, and your alleged job. 5. What does your therapist think about all of this? Clearly, there's a lot you could throw back at us - "You're so tacky, you think Burberry is a syrup at iHop!" etc. - but really, that would just prove the point. Instead, we're hoping for some answers. Otherwise, we're imagining you stalking Meredith Melling Burke in the 4 Times Square Lobby, Mr. Ripley style - though that's not all bad, since remember, Matt Damon lost 20 lbs for the part and was a perfect Size Zero in the movie. xoxo Fashionista
