Begone, Twitter, I have a new obsession

My days of toiling and obsessing over Twitter are done with, I've found a new guilty pleasure to occupy my time while in TOH (tax office hell). www.lookbook.nu is an online fashion community promoting "online fashion consciousness" where fashionistas, artists, and junkies post "looks" and members can give get inspired, give feedback, and bubble with jealousy. Also very cool is that each look has a for the most part creative and witty little tagline, like "I told you to follow me home" and "burnt pancakes".

The interesting thing about lookbook, however, is that it's invite only. You have to apply! They pride themselves on "bringing together diverse, aesthetically talented and open-minded people", however most of the looks showcased are ripped right from the pages of Urban Outfitters. Think a mix of designer and vintage, with street urchin and hipster undertones. Luckily for me, that's right up my alley. I even got inspired to acid-wash a pair of skinnies by myself. They came out killer, by the way, and I'll be posting pics of them soon as well as what I did. But I don't think I'll be applying anytime soon. I don't take rejection well. And don't worry Twitter, we all know I'm not going anywhere.

Photos to follow....

P.S. I want to date every guy featured. So adorable! They're probably all gay though... alas, story of my life.
