1. I'll be the first to admit that most of the pics I take aren't very... fashiony.
Which is why I'm grateful to people like the uber talented Ninelle.
How awesome are those pics? Makes you want to throw on a leotard and dance around on some nice warm carpet. And roll around on it. I think I speak for all of us on this one.
2. There is a question I get asked all the time. "Are the Purple Galaxy Leggings so awesome that I could be just hanging out in a video store in Poland and look so cute that grown men would weep sugary tears of joy at the sight of my radiant girl fashion power?"
I have always answered yes.
Now I have proof.
3. Wet look leggings. So simple.. and yet SO AWESOME. Having the legs of a supercute French blogger in them helps....
The amazing Adeline Rapon. Doing her best Kate Bush impression....
4. Of course, I don't have any wet look fabric. Which sucks. It's such a bizarre experience running a business when you get these phone calls:
Fabric company: Sorry, you can't buy any more wet look fabric for six weeks.
Me: No problem. I'll just go broke then. Thanks!
I'm sure 20 000 obsessive fangirls will be only too happy to wait a month and a half. Poo poo to you, naughty fabric importers.
5. I'm going to give this a DON"T:
I can't put my finger on exactly what is wrong here.... but I'm pretty sure it has something to do with the enormous bottom bow.
And the location is probably not helping.
6. Someone baked me a cake - HOW AWESOME!?
It was yummy, too.
6. I LOVE that whole girl in front of the mirror with an iPhone vibe. One day I'm going to make every picture in the BM store nothing but girls in front of mirrors with iPhones.
Actually - that is a seriously cool idea. Imagine a phtooshoot with nothing but pics in a bathroom with an iPhone! I'm doing it.
7. After discussing my interest in theology and philosophy, I have been asked by certain Black Milk wearing girls on Facebook to elaborate on the difference between Natuarlism and Supernaturalism, and on the question as to which has more rational and epistemic warrant. Naturalism is perhaps best summed up by Carl Sagan who said "the universe is all there is, was, or ever will be". Supernaturalism is the opposite - the belief that the universe is NOT all there ever is, was, or will be. I think supernaturalism has more rational warrant.
To clarify a point about Supernaturalism that is often misunderstood - the word supernatural doesn't mean "things we don't understand". This would be an epistemological, rather than an ontological category (pertaining to knowledge rather than being). To say that an entity or state of affairs is supernatural is to simply categorise it as outside - or perhaps beyond or above (latin: super) the physical universe that we experience. Whether something is understood or not by humans has no bearing on it's ontic status - both natural and supernatural realities could be understood to a lesser or greater degree without changing category. Supernatural entities could include things such as non physical religious/spiritual realities, as well as objects posited by theoretical physics, such as any realities within a universe outside our own i.e. within the multiverse. And platonic abstract objects, I guess.
Soooo ... my point is that the supernaturalism is not about spooky unexplained stuff,it is rather the idea that the set of objects and states of affairs that exist in the physical universe are a subset of a wider set of existent entities and realities.
Now go buy tights.
Internet hugs for all.
