Dressember, Lady Gaga, and The Horror That Is Brush Script

[ Day 6. Dress: Nordstroms' Rack, Shoes: Steve Madden, Jacket: Some Chincy Brand. ]

[ Day 7. Dress: H&M, Shoes: Boutique 9 ]

Here is day 6 and 7 of Dressember. Day 7's dress is really fun because on top of having a really cool visible zipper on the back, it's got Lady Gaga-esque structured shoulders.

Today me and my lovely co-worker Blythe were commiserating over the demise of Signage and Logos everywhere. What is the cause of death? Brush Script. Yes, this font has single handedly taken over store fronts and business cards across the world and is silently but surely killing good branding. Check out our friend Shannon Leith's site dedicated to all the places Brush Script has conquered. The blog is cleverly named "Daily B.S." (hehe) Trying to find the green zone where Brush Script doesn't have a strong hold is like trying to find the Green Zone in Iraq. Brush Script is hidden EVERYWHERE!
