Ugh, I hate the expressions most runway models have. Dead-eyed, too much makeup, bored to death and with the expression, if discernable, saying "UGH I FUCKING HATE THIS". Hell, not even any of the struts that 80's models had. (Also, I agree that most fashion is effing ridiculous and virtually impossible to actually wear in public without looking stupid as hell or heinously unflattering. If it was on a runway, under no circumstances should it be worn off a runway.)

If "lack of expression" today means their raccoon eye is half a millimetre too closed from half-closed and it's got less than a completely dead look to it, I could sympathize...

I agree, they're pretty obviously not meant for everyday wear (again, unless you're Lady Gaga), and part of the point is pushing the limits of what can be done with various materials intended to be worn on someone's body. I get that. But then there are people that legit spend more money than I make in a year on things clearly designed by someone who enjoys making the human body look as terrible as possible. JOKE'S ON YOU, I guess.

Dude, if I had to sashay around a catwalk in one of those getups, I'd be looking like I hated myself and everything in the universe, too. I don't care how much money I was getting paid to do it.

No class tomorrow! Homework done for Monday and Tuesday! Going to goof off tonight. I have to get up early tomorrow to go to the dermatologist since I broke my stitches. But they are still firmly in my arm, just not effectively.

I think I'll play the sims.

I....I've always known that 'high end fashion' looks ridiculous, but I.....I've never seen anything as ridiculous as that.
I thought the beginning was really bad. And then I scrolled down.

And why are any of these clothes even made if they can't be worn ANYWHERE?!
But like...they can at least look confident. And not have this odd pouty look on their faces.

I hate it when people have to make everything about them. I have this friend Jo who is getting married next month. She has been talking about NOTHING else. I get it, she's excited. But today, two of my close friends announced their engagement. They have been together almost as long as I have known them (which is about 12 years), so I was really stoked. I updated my Facebook status congratulating them, and the first thing Jo does is say, " The "I'm engaged" club is an awesome club to be in! Congrats!"
We get it... you're engaged too. Can you let someone else have the spotlight for TWO SECONDS?? Jeez.

I'm seriously considering going to bed now just so that I can barge downstairs in 5 minutes and tell my family to shut up that I'm trying to sleep.
