Amateur Modeling at its Finest

And no, for once I'm not talking about America's Next Top "Model." I'm talking about this lovely thing over at I was cracking up and the girl's "posing," or lack thereof. I mean seriously, who okayed these photos?!

I'll break this failure down for you guys:

1. The Generic Catalog Pose: There is, quite literally, no life in this arm. There are no angles, no interest, no posing really. Last time I checked, the point of catalog modeling is not to make garments look shapeless. This does nothing to make me want to buy this dress.

2. The Over-Exaggerated Shoulder Hunch: Clearly, someone has been doing her homework and reading Vogue and W, and has equated that a hunched shoulder equals high fashion. But, when you only lift one shoulder with the rest of your body erect, you only look rather lopsided.

3. And finally, whatever the hell this is. I mean COME ON what is going on with that right arm?! Who directed this photoshoot? Who told this girl that this was a good idea?!!

However, this dress is hella cute [I will link it here]. I just get too distracted by the crazy arms and deer-in-headlights, trying-too-hard expression. She's a pretty girl, but LORD please give her some guidance in the modeling department.

I've come to the conclusion that the girl's right arm is just dead.

OBSESSING Over Proenza Schouler

Perhaps it's because I'm extremely biased, and I think Lazaro Hernandez and Jack McCullough can do no wrong, but I am in LOVE with Proenza Schouler's Fall 2010 RTW collection. I think it is a perfect transition from their Spring 2010 collection. It still has those bright cobalt blues that I loved from Spring, only now intertwined with more muted teals and plums, ditzy florals, and cozy knits. And their awesome graffiti-printed jeans? They collaborated with J Brand, and to quote "Try keeping those on shelves."

The accessories were rather splendid as well. I'm loving these shoes with the quirky heels, and of course their bags are making me drool all over my keyboard.

Inspiration for Tuesday

I stupidly registered for 18 credits this semester. So basically if I'm not in class I'm studying, and if I'm not studying I'm working at Macy's making next to nothing. And on top of that I'm searching for summer internships (so if anybody ANYBODY has any suggestions, they would be greatly appreciated.) And I'm sick and tired of all this snow. And how people drive in the snow.

Basically, snow and other drivers make me a homicidal maniac. So you can imagine the deadly combination that the two of these bring.

I cannot wait for this day ^^

Becauseeeee right now I am about knee-deep in snow. Damn you Ohio! [[Damn that ham!]]

This photo ^^ makes me happy. Because it is on the first page of and THAT means new music/projects from Trent and/or the NIN crew.

Right now this pullover from Anthropologie has caught my eye, and is holding on for dear life (how's THAT for imagery?). The color is lovely, and so are the fluttery chiffon sleeves. I think it would be perfect for spring, and we all know the Spring Fever I have right now.

photos: fffound! &
