it's not just any paper towel

3-D life is taking over! I feel so out of it...like, Kanye reads fashun blogs? Twitter was on the front page of the Times? THE SHAMWOW GUY GOT ARRESTED? Wutinthewut. LET'S JUST STOP RIGHT THERE. Internet, you are blowing my mind.
Posts will be pretty spotty from now on but if you want incessant ADD posting that will ultimately dominate your dashboard, you can read the ever angsty quick inspiration Tumblr I've been unloading my entire hard drive on.In other insomnia ramblings, I am honestly not that big on fashion magazines. Or at least, I hardly ever buy them. I just sneak food into Borders and grab a bunch of Vogues and fancy WE USE HELVETICA AND ALL CAPITAL LETTERS/COST 24 DOLLARS magazines and read them in the corner whilst slurping some GoGurt and walk out without buying anything. That's how you gotta operate in this here "recession," you see. Go cheap or go home! And if you don't go cheap, spend money on pretty things like this.Anyways, I find many fashion magazines to be too commercial, and if they're not too commercial they just try too hard NOT to be. It's like designers that are weird just for the sake of being weird and "going against the norm." Vogue, saying "Real Women Have Curves" contradicts half of your magazine and we all know your future content still won't change a bit. I mean, when I saw this month's cover, TOTAL Photoshop questioning went through my mind. Mmm, irony.
RUSSH, on the other hand, is a lovely little Australian fashion magazine that puts awesome girlcrush material chicks like Karlie Kloss in Rodarte and then takes epic pictures of them. More here.
Have a good weekend, you cool cats.I WISH I could take credit for this incredibly profound and beautiful illustration but my guess is some kid that was once on Arthur's "And Now a Word From Us Kids" drew this? Source here.

hahaha i used to watch arthur all the time, but i hated the segway between episodes with that program. and i completely agree with you on the magazine front. karlie is amazing, i honestly can't believe we're so close in age its a bit depressing but mostly just cool(cat).

Utah Savage said...

Karlie is very interesting looking, very expressive, very almost real looking.

You are a secret addiction of mine. I spent my life modeling. I modeled from 15 to 55. I'm now 64 and still a bit of a fashion junkie, but not to buy or wear, but to think about. I don't like much of what I see, but I keep looking and thinking about how little it attracts me. I no longer care much about the way I look, but I think everything is political, even, maybe especially, fashion.

Utah Savage said...

And yes, this photo shoot is spectacular. You do have lovely taste.

Mouthwash said...

I....I am flabbergasted at your visual itellect! Keep this going strong, and you m'dear will have any job in fashion available to you.
All this at your age, I honestly applaud you.
And, I love those aa tights from below!

amazing, the knits are pretty fantatic.

alice said...

RUSSH is fantastic, its well priced, with lots of fashion and images
its slightly like recession chic. but then really not...

i always think that karlie looks like she is wearing a steak dress though....or is it just me?

la petite fashionista said...

Karlie Kloss is so amazingly beautiful & without even wearing make-up. She works the Rodarte almost as well as you Tavi! :)

Casey said...

Lori said...

i know, i'm shocked about the shamwow guy too.

oh well i was always a bigger fan of the oxiclean guy anyways

I love Karlie, she always makes the pictures come alive! The illustration of the cat is cool is, in a word, supercool! xxoxoxo

lucille said...

omg love thats image ! and the cat ...

im so glad russh exists. without it australia would be completely deprived of a good fashion magazine that isnt ridiculously expensive.

australian harpers baazar and vogue, in my opinion are rubbish. theyre so commerical its like reading a catalogue for k-mart.

taf said...

Russh is fab. I think you'd like Frankie too.

Isabel said...

"Grunge and Glamour"? I MUST get my hands on a copy of this magazine. Also, the Shamwow guy got arrested!? Stop the bus!

Emily said...

i love karlie kloss dearly. mucho girl crusho.
i tend not to read fashion magazines either... blogs are my addiction.

Bridgette said...

I love Arthur! That kid's got talent!
I totally second you on the Vogue cover. It's insane. I found it hilarious that they didn't even wait until the inside of the mag to contradict themselves, they went right for it by putting the little "Nip/Tuck. Designing the perfect body" banner in the corner! I mean, was that seriously overlooked by the editor!?
