Grace Jones

thecsperspective.com


A friend of mine says to me, "Someone said I reminded him of Grace Jones. I didn't know if he was complimenting me or making fun of me." My friend cannot sing so I ruled out the possibility that it may have been a similarity to Grace Jones' voice. So I looked my friend over and it definitely wasn't her hair cut. Yes, she's really dark but she looks nothing like Grace Jones. But guess what? As I was about to say I didn't know what that person was talking about, my friend said something to me and it was right there. The mannerism and the fashion. Grace Jones takes risks. My friend definitely takes fashion risks and sometimes does things that, to me, are fashion-no-nos. "It's my style and at least I don't expose myself," she reminds me. After the Grace Jones comment, that was all I saw. I didn't know if this was good or bad but I could tell you it was easy to draw inspiration for new fashion ideas. I told her I agreed with the person who called her Grace Jones but in my case it's compliment. I don't know if I made a mistake saying that to her because lately, her fashion sense has gotten crazier.
