When I am in the mood for something very campy I reach for a cozy mystery. I thought of this tonight while looking at pictures of celebrities and members of the fashion world attending the Met Gala. The theme this year is camp.
Cozy mysteries are definitively campy…
It is something that I love about the genre. The titles are tongue in cheek. The cover art is often as colorful as a Moschino ad.
You gotta love it… or leave it alone
And just like a Jeremy Scott fashion creation it isn’t for everyone!
There will always be Chanel… and classic high falutin literature
But for me I don’t mind filling my closet and bookcases with low brow things that help make life a joy.
Give me Commes Des Garçons; give me Alexander Wang…
Let’s get tacky!
Because it’s best to live, and love, before we die.
