i came across this image the other day at work while doing research and despite all the absurd and questionable editorial fashion i expose myself to on a daily basis, this image in particular just really made me giggle. there's SO much stuff out there in the world of fashion that can give rise to an eyebrow or two but this outfit, in all it's pared down sheer simplicity (pun intended), i found to be magnificently absurd. in case you haven't realized it yet, the above is a shirt that evokes a particular form of the female figure which is fancy talk for makes men look like they have titties. you know those shirts you can by on the boardwalk of any shore town, usa with the drawing of the bikini clad lady torso and when you put it on, your head becomes the head for the torso and it looks like you're a scantily clad cartoon bikini lady?? yeah, there's really no difference between that and the above EXCEPT for the notable exception that booby tee up there probably costs $827 more than the $4.99 you'd drop for cartoon bikini lady (but hey, at least both forms of shop keeper would most likely be equally as surly towards you, so there's that...). i dove a little deeper into the "trend" that homeboy up there exemplifies and found the following images that i figured i should also share. enjoy the carnival or fine art or whatever they call it.
image inspired by this amazing site which allows people to submit their own fill in the blank letters to whatever or whoever, such as:
Dear old man,
Remember when you were really busy getting your driver's license and I was really busy getting my birth certificate?
the girl you shouldn't be hitting on.
or this one:
Dear baking soda,
How is it that you're good for baking AND cleaning toilet bowls?
words have never been able to describe my love (and borderline obsession) with kristen shaal. literally, toy story 3 was a better movie because of her, even tho she only had like 3 minutes of screen time as the triceratops. regardless, android has rolled out a new campaign with a bunch of ads starring the awesomely awkward diva. some are better than others but any kristen shaal is better than no kristen shaal, amirite?! more after the jump.
this project is beyond awesome. entitled "back to the future" and created by photographer irina werning, here's a summary of the project in her words. check out the entire project on her site as well!!
"I love old photos. I admit being a nosey photographer. As soon as I step into someone else’s house, I start sniffing for them. Most of us are fascinated by their retro look but to me, it’s imagining how people would feel and look like if they were to reenact them today... A few months ago, I decided to actually do this. So, with my camera, I started inviting people to go back to their future."
