1. Welcome to the new Styleforum!

    We hope you’re as excited as we are to hang out in the new place. There are more new features that we’ll announce in the near future, but for now we hope you’ll enjoy the new site.

    We are currently fine-tuning the forum for your browsing pleasure, so bear with any lingering dust as we work to make Styleforum even more awesome than it was.

    Oh, and don’t forget to head over to the Styleforum Journal, because we’re giving away two pairs of Carmina shoes to celebrate our move!

    Please address any questions about using the new forum to support@styleforum.net

    Cheers,

    Why can't people live the experience and capture the memory in the same visit? Why do they have to be mutually exclusive, simply because the OP has a hard-on for pretension?

    I know, this is another 'mocking the moron masses' thread, but why are your behaviors in a museum any more valid than the behaviors of those you're condescending? I could say you're a plebe for even going to a museum, so who cares whether you stare at a room full of Warhol prints for an hour or if you take a bunch of cellphone shots in a two minute pass through.

    They do it so they can look at it on the train, while they shuffle between cities every 24 hours . 8 countries! 9 days! They're cultured! Lives are enriched!
