Erin O’Connor for Versace, via NorthernStar @ TFS
This is THE perfect outfit for bloody 38 degree weather when the best thing to wear is as little as possible, and the best environment for it is cold and liquid.

Erin O’Connor in Harper’s Bazaar, from layersandswathes
I’ve always thought clear plastic macs and umbrellas (yeah, the kind Charlotte carts around in Lost In Translation) look the coolest. On Erin, the coolness is enough to cause a second Ice Age, no joke.

Still my favourite psychotic brunette pixie, ever.

I just want to be delicately beautiful and surrounded by the pure sexual menace of a bunch of rowdy sports thugs ok

The Sartorialist: On the Street…. Prinsengracht, Amsterdam


Maybe it’s just my inner football fan coming out (Ajax isn’t just “the local football club”, Sart!) but I’d rather hang with the rowdy sports thugs, they look like they’re having a lot more fun than the beautiful but nonplussed fashion girl who is the ostensible focus of the pic.  
In fact I wonder how that pic came to be  in the first place, fashion girls and out-and-out football fans aren’t really ever very likely to be in each other’s company.

Sister, I despise tumblr but I really, truly love yours. You really do have a knack for picking the most beautiful art.

Can you pass an 8th grade civics test. -

I missed one.  I haz a shame :(

10/10 but then again I’ve been to law school (I’d be really disappointed in myself if I fucked this up). There’s one question that’s legitimately a “gotcha” for anyone who hasn’t.

The rest I really hope folks figure out before 2012…

Incidentally, civics wasn’t offered in any of the ten schools I attended in grades K-12, which I find appalling. If we’re going to let everyone vote I think it should be mandatory that we teach them about the basic functions of governments…in particular ours.

10/10 here too, though I should probably admit:

a) I was once a law student (I am not, however, American).

b) I had to resort to guesswork on one of them.

Dear Rebloggers

When you reblog something I’ve posted, QUIT REMOVING THE CREDITS.

The image doesn’t belong to you or to me, the least you can do is acknowledge the people who created the pretty picture when you put it on your tumblr. Your wanting it =/= being entitled to take it and then claim “fair use”/ “it’s just floating around the Internet!”
