Okay, I'll be honest, I finished watching Firefly and Serenity at least a week ago, but I can't stop thinking about it and I wanted to include it. For someone who makes it habit to obsess over canceled-too-soon TV shows (Arrested Development, Freaks and Geeks, and Party Down are all some of my favorites), I still can't believe it took me this long to watch it. I seriously cannot get over how much I loved this show (and the movie) and it's going to take me some time to find a show to live up to it now.
Also, I should add that I have an extremely strong love of minimalist and just plain cool movie and TV art. I like the idea of including art from the things I'm watching rather than promotional images in these posts. Or maybe I just like the idea of seeing who can figure out what I'm referring to just by the images. The two above are some of my favorite Firefly prints. I especially love the dinosaur one because, well, how can you not love Wash?
We've been talking about body image a lot in my social/psychology of dress class, so I was more interested in usual to come across this Hello Giggles article entitled, "Saying No To The Say No To Size Zero Campaign" by one of the website's readers, which I found really insightful. I can't help agree with the point. While the Say No to Size Zero campaign sounds like a great way to promote better body image, isn't it just alienating naturally skinny girls the same way curvy girls have been alienated? Healthy body image isn't about saying "curvy is better," it's about being happy in our bodies and with ourselves no matter what shapes we are. Curvy girls shouldn't be made fun of for being bigger, but naturally skinny girls shouldn't be called anorexic either.
I can't stop thinking about how I wish I could afford a pair of Seychelles flats for summer. Granted, every pair they make is perfection, but I've been drooling over the Model Citizen and Freesia flats for a while now. They both belong in my closet, don't you think?
I've been following Laura from The Joyful Fox for some time now, and I fall in love a little more with each post. Not only does she have the most gorgeous collection of clothes, but her photography is just as wonderful. Plus, she launched the best idea recently as she'll be donating 25% of the money she makes from sponsors to charity. I was so inspired when I saw this that I'm considering doing the same.
The live session of this song. So good.
