it's been a long and slow week. i wrote my midterm for celebrity culture and it went pretty well. it was the first time i ever had to debate about changing font sizes to make the paper shorter. at 9 pages, it was three over the limit but my prof is amazing so i dont think she'll mind.
the subject of my paper, you ask? notoriety of fame and popularity with style blogs, specifically on sea of shoes and style rookie. the blogsphere (what a terrible world) is a democratizing force, since we as bloggers all start off with the same thing- a blank blog. everything is equal and thus popularity is attributed to what must be the individuals, the personalities of some bodies that stuck out with the mass of the anonymous. however, as a medium, blogs are informal, they are informal by nature b/c their intention of creation was an online journal- thus blogs are the hybridization of the public and private self. when reading blogs of other people, we feel close to them b/c we feel as though we are reading their private thoughts and connecting over the impersonal nature of the web. yadayada yada i ponder if tavi and jane actually write their blogs (there are rumors that they dont, ect) and what they would mean if they didn't, i liken it to the hills b/c the hills is supposed to be unscripted, its debatable if it's not but if they were to hypothetical admit that it was scripted, the hills would cease to exist b/c the point of it is to be reality tv and we assume it's real life. even tho it is so obviously scripted and everyone on that show can barely act and the drama is super duper lame.
la dee dah, moving on.
two artists im kind of obsessed with and they are subtly influencing my work. could it be b/c the gallery i am a little mouse helper intern at represents them? maybe. but i do enjoy them so.
my brand new baby, adopted from marni. plum suede platforms, edged in silver.
hello, hello little new ones!
some things i wore this week. the weather done changed on me and i was so upset that i've been telling myself it is quite warmer than it is. i refuse to put away my shorts until it starts to frost. looks up at sky, shakes fist.
i feel like i'm challenging the weather to give me pneumonia but so be it!
you can always tell it's thursday if im wearing mayle. my professor is more in love with mayle than i am. she has such good taste
mayle shirt, sonia rykiel shorts, topshop hat, rachel comey brogues
this outfit felt a lil awkward- it could be b/c the tights are so harsh but the rest of the outfit is light and airy.
gary graham dress, chloe shoes, anna sui snake necklace
i'm off to the met, in shorts with tights, to go see the robert frank show.
