The Sexy Spinster Quote – Tina Fey

Oh look, an excuse to write about and talk about my favorite imaginary best friend Tina Fey. This quote comes from her awesome book ‘Bossypants’. You must must read it. Or even better get the audiobook and listen to it in the car on the way to work. I can’t say enough good things about it. It’s autobiographical, written with her unique perspective and sense of humor. This quote could be considered a mission statement for The Sexy Spinster blog as well. Like I said in my ‘About’ section, whether you chose to be unmarried and childfree, or circumstances led you to it, ‘Do your own thing and don’t care if they don’t like it’. You don’t have to do anything you don’t want to do, don’t apologize, don’t put yourself down, own it.

Diana Vreeland was a columnist at Harper’s Bazaar from 1936 until 1962, she was credited with discovering Lauren Bacall. After resigning from Harper’s Bazaar, she became Editor in Chief at Vogue during the 1960’s. I would strongly encourage you to watch the superb documentary “Diana Vreeland: The Eye Has to Travel”. She’s an amazing woman who had tremendous influence and style for decades. Basically, I want to be her when I grow up.
