oh, wow.

so you know when you have those back to the drawing board moments? like you're writing a poem or drawing a picture for instance, and then you take a look at someone's work that's just far superior in every way imaginable, and you just know it's time to go back to the drawing board. and it's not a negative or resentful feeling, more like a simple inspirational acknowledgment that, okay, you've seen the bar raised, and now you're gonna push yourself and just do your thing that much better if you can.


i guess you could say i was plodding along through life, thinking i was living moderately stylishly, though i'll admit i've given myself plenty of leeway for non-fashiony days, due to school and overwhelming responsibilities. but overall, i thought i was doing a pretty good job of it all. and then i stumbled upon this. and then i knew it was time to go back to the drawing board.

there's a definite language barrier here, for sure, but who needs words with pictures like these? i don't even know if this blog is run by one girl or many. there's so many pictures of different well-dressed girls. but the girl who clearly has the most pictures puts together outfits that are truly to die for. thank you for showing me the light, underbaraclara.

p.s: thank you, ny times! for some reason or other, i love reading your fashion&style section, and i feel like it's been majorly lacking lately, but these articles are pretty decent. i'll even forgive you for waiting this long to talk about the victoria beckham marc jacobs ads.

Wow, after looking at those pictures... I kinda feel ashamed of my wardrobe. definitely having a back to the drawing board moment. and WOW you have pretty big names going to your concert. Pretty sweet but It's like making an ice cream w/ ostrich meat smoothie
not implying any of them are ice cream like or ostrich-esque.
