1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I have to say I'm losing interest in pursuing pieces with the decline of my favorite labels and am reaching a level where I am very content with the pieces I own. I plan on wearing the shit out of them for the rest of my life as opposed to chasing new things.

    Fall 2007 was the pinnacle.

    I had to show an acquaintance once. She was mildly offended.

    I'm in the process of packing for college/going through every article of clothing I own.

    I had a lot of button-downs that I never wore because the pattern/fit didn't work just wearing it with a pair of jeans. After being on SF for awhile they all now seem full of possibilities for layering with jackets, coats, sweaters, etc.

    Random thoughts... After saying that wasn't steampunk, I'm now wondering what the hell defines steampunk.

    Dunno' but I'd love to see it take on some kind of form in fashion. I can almost envision it but I can't, like gothninja before gothninja ever became a term.

    It's not really practical to be overtly stylish at Texas A&M. Well fitting jeans (not skinny, mind you) are about as SF approved as it gets over there. It's also really f00king hot, making cargo shorts and flip flops a very appealing setup. Finding the perfect medium is a long, slow, expensive process...

    yeah, florida heat makes it pretty hard also. practically all shorts fit like shit and a T can only go so far, its hard to look good a lot of the time

    Raw jeans are overrated.

    Really, really, overrated.

    At least here on SF. I like the clean look, and I like the well worn in look. I only need one of both, not an entire closet full of nearly identical raw barely worn in denim.

    To each their own, but with the kind of money that's going into so many pairs they can be used else where (non-denim pants, outerwear, jackets, shoes... so many options).

    Raw jeans are not overrated, buying the same item over and over again is overrated.

    I'll be back stateside for the next few months so I've begun figuring out just what the hell to take with me. I'm really trying to belt down on basics but at the same time I'm looking forward to dressing for different climates for a change; yes, I'm complaining about 70-degree year-round weather.

    Why is it so difficult for malls to carry anything good? With few exceptions most every store in the mall is garbage.

    The thought of going to a mall has become like seeing the dentist for a root canal. The elitism is strong in me but I think it's because I prefer to buy online than be bored to death in what's basically a style trough.

    The only purpose of going to south coast and bev center is to show off my elitism by going into supposed high end stores and scoffing at their staff and merchandise while wearing my niche brand clothing.

    I never wore uniqlo over this last year in Japan, because it's the most boring, ubiquitous stuff out there. Returning home to Portland, though, I feel like uniqlo flannels are going to become my campus go-to. They've got a great fit, layer easy, and top off raw denim nicely.
