FNO sucks.

I stayed at home, cooked and listened to comforting lies from the DNC.

How is fashion's night out in DC?

I saw pics from a runway show they had last year to highlight local designers

And I'm imagining some of the models were quoting The Wire -- "i wonder what it feels like to work for a real fuckin' clothing label"

My defense of DC against stereotyping and accusations of provincialism is pretty regularly undermined by the persistence of DC's shittiness

(I don't know about FNO but most of the events look weak)

Also, RFT-- there's a little demon inside of me that controls my purchasing decisions, making logical connections that the rest of me isn't aware of. And then when I ask my demon how it chooses what to buy and what to skip, it refuses to give me a straight answer. Just gives me a wink and a condescending laugh and walks off to buy some more random shit.

we were in a bit of a hurry so dammit i did miss the rug sweater!! frown.gif the chains were really cool though

Yeah, I'm just visiting for the week and had no knowledge of the exhibit, so I know that feeling of excitement and the subsequent letdown haha. It's only after I went back a second time at the end of my trip to the museum that I really made an effort take take it all in and check everything out.

I was really impressed by the museum though! I like this town


FNO was unavoidable where I'm staying here though, (streeterville?) and while I didn't partake in any of the activities, it really seemed to bring out the worst in people. In this town where cargo shorts reigned supreme for the past 5 days you could tell how people went outside of their comfort zone to look fashionable. Most people looked, you know, uncomfortable with themselves. Oh and lot of girls in heels that couldn't walk in heels! but my favorite was a guy that walked by with a really beat up shopping bag from Gucci that obviously wasn't from that night and you could tell he totally carries it around every time he goes out shopping to look like he just came from the store. For shame frown.gif

But the worst part is that feeling of pretension it gave me. I don't want to be a snob like that but it was just THAT bad

I don't necessarily want everyone on SF to immediately know exactly where I go to school, so here are some edited photos and selected quotes. (I dunno, maybe you guys can reverse image search, but whatever.)





"I was inspired by a modern twist on old taste. A traditional cut suit for a boxier look with a fitted dark tee underneath. A good combination of style and sophistication. A white pocket square would add nice contrast, now that I think about it. You don’t need an excuse to dress up, I’m trying to live that this year."





"In the first week of classes its all about trying to be myself, and that varies, so some days I wear a button up, but today I rolled out of bed and decided to wear my trippy tie-dye. Its too hot and humid to wear anything else, so it was a tie-dye, shorts and vans kind of day. I like to be comfortable more than anything else."


One poor freshman's unfortunate quote: "I wear whatever the day feels like, and I heard it was going to be hot."

This makes me want to take back everything I ever said about appropriating tailored clothing for casual contexts

Quote from a senior girl: "Stay conservative, classy, and show off a little bit of personal style."

Ugh.
