The famous teenaged fashion model doll

I adore old commercials: This happens to be a particular favorite. Oh Barbie, will you ever learn? In the real world, Ken would dump you for a Bratz doll named Yazmin at "the dance", and you'd be too busy maintaining your 6 foot, 18 inch waist, 100 lb figure "to eat lunch at school together". And Barbie: Fraternity parties aren't what they used to be! 

Here's to being real!

Love, Love, Love

I love love love Proenza Schouler's Fall 2009 collection. Listen, I know everyone sees bizarre runway fashion as an exquisite art form, but I honestly think that it's quite refreshing to see a girl walk out on the runway in something that's somewhat realistic; opposed to Martin Margiela's "look" - if it even deserves that title. I mean, how insulting would that be to the poor girl chosen to wear the thing? Why not just say, "You've got great legs...but I think we're going to have swaddle you in red jersey from the hips up to raw attention away from ... your ... well ... hips up," or "Given the recent economic troubles, we've decided to ... downsize ... hair and makeup. So, good news! Your call time is two hours later!"

And Betsey Johnson? She traveled outside her realm of homecoming dresses you'll wear once, to Gone With the Wind-meets-Charlie Chaplin.

Speaking of high school dances; I'm off to Winter Formal Decorating!

Hi, I'm Anne and I drive a giant toaster

Hey lovelies!

Long time, no see. Well anywho, I am simply announcing my entrance back into the blogging stratosphere. Despite my excuse that school work got in the way of blogging; as I was cruising through Miss Couturable and Sea of Shoes during lit. the other day, I realized that I really, really missed it.

Given that I haven't blogged since around 1995 (I'm kind of the queen of exaggeration, just ask my mother), a lot has changed since I've lasted posted:
  • I'm 16.
  • I can drive! As I said to my friend Emma, "Screw turning 16, I just want a license." Well that's actually a Catch-22...You need to be 16 to get a license.
  • I drive a 2008 Honda Element! It's my little, giant box! It's Galaxy Gray and absolutely perfect. When people ask what car I have, I just say, "Oh, I drive a toaster." It really does look like you could stick two slices of Sarah Lee in the top.
  • What else...
  • I broke up with my boyfriend, but I'm engaged to Robert Pattinson (in my dreams).
  • I've read the first three books of the Twilight series. Go ahead, shoot me, I'm a stereotypical teenaged girl who swoons at the idea of a vampire falling in love with a human. Well, I'm pretty much obsessed, but I made a vow to myself that I wouldn't ever turn into one of those emo chicks who like wears the  t-shirts from Hot Topic that quote the movie, "I don't want to be monster." Don't get me wrong, Robert Pattinson is absolutely charming; but I don't want him plastered on my back with yellow eyes. Twilight is pretty much my secret shame...
  • I am the proud mother of an iPhone! I babysat on Saturday (the one family who keeps me in business), and you have to know that I am a total enabler babysitter. So, in the past I would always let the little boy and girl I watch play with my really crappy LG Chocolate. I can't even tell you the physical pain it caused me to pass over my 3G into their Orville Redenbacher-butter-coated palms. But thankfully, no harm was done.
  • This semester I'm in a TV production class, and I adore it! I've been making movies since age five, and I feel like this is really where I can see if I like it for a possible career...
Well, that is about it! If you haven't read my blog before, I'm Anne: A (somewhat) small-town girl hoping to venture out in the world...I'm just not sure what I want to do when I am out in the world. I'm a sophomore in high school, and I love fashion, film and music!
