Not the Lifetime Achievement Award I Was Hoping For

A couple of years ago I was honored to receive the 2020 University of Miami Distinguished Faculty Scholar Award in recognition of my writing.  Little did I know what was yet to come.

What my name was used to publicize.

Now comes Mashable to identify my highest and best contribution to the world:

The name Michael Froomkin likely doesn’t mean anything to you. That’s because his biggest and most important contribution to the world is a post on where he states, “If You Wait Long Enough, Everything Comes Back Into Style.” It’s not clear if this is true or not, but it seems common enough.

A backhanded compliment, perhaps, but does it mean it’s all over now and I should retire?

    Wild. What google search for a variant of “everything comes back in style” yields at the top? (And what’s the meaning of the last-quoted sentence? The assertion that everything comes back into style is common? “Things coming back into style” is common but perhaps not universal? God knows.) Happy RH.

    I mean, I understand pumping out corporate blog-copy is a grind, but some of the things some of those shops manage to squeeze out are… very odd.

    For whatever it may be worth, EPIC comes to mind well before fashion advice when I think of you.
