'Don't you just love New York in the Fall? It makes me want to buy school supplies.' - Joe Fox
I noticed this week that Matchbook Magazine ('Read it, I know you'll love it') had a two page pictoral/editorial in their September issue inspired by the fictional Joe Fox's line about 'bouquets of newly sharpened penciles.' I love that You've Got Mail is still so relevant, and that there are, apparently, at least dozens if not hundreds of other women out there who love that timeless film. It's reassuring to know that I'm not the only woman out there thinking 'Go to the mattresses' when I walk into a meeting at work!
I also find it interesting that the style of the film is still influencing us today; Kathleen was crisp, classic, and lady like, while Joe's style was masculine and self assured, with a touch of industrial influence. That leads me to reflect on my own relationship, and reminds me how much I appreciate those qualities, and the masculine style, in my everyday life.
