Elegance is Frightening

What is the purpose of the "Elegance is Frightening" website?

We have started this site as a way to let others know that they're not alone in their fear of elegance.  Our culture spotlights elegant people all the time, yet it neglects to show the real fear that these people impose upon us every day.

Just why, you ask, is elegance so frightening?

I'm not exactly sure.  However, once you experience that rush of fear, you'll know exactly what I'm talking about. Once I unexpectedly found myself in an elegant place.  It was so traumatizing that to this day I still shiver with fear at the thought of this place.
