Style Snaps : LOOK AT ME, LOOKING AT YOU!

Opening Ceremony NYC on Howard St., Can you guess the hemline of each dress? Look past the jump to see if you're right!

At first I laugh, and then I consider... What irony! Opening Ceremony aptly personifies "the blogger" in its well lit window, with its well dressed mannequins. Carefully clad in designer duds, these lovely ladies dare to stare--looking out into a world that's peering back at them. Like many bloggers, I view the world with a keen eye, scouting shareable substance while assuming the part of a style superstar (ok, maybe a stretch!). But even as a verified voyeur, there are days when I become the self-conscious elephant in the room. There I was, under-dressed in yellow among a sea of expensive Little Black Dresses for a museum preview... and overdressed in a multi-tiered ball gown for a "black tie" venue. But hey, story straight and shoulders back... even these mannequins can attest that the appearance of confidence gives modesty a new meaning!


Did you guess correctly?

    1. LoL! I like the first one as well. In my college days, I rocked "short." As I hit 30, my hemlines have certainly grown!

  3. I just stumbled across these last week and got a kick out of them too--I like your analysis of the viewer becoming the viewed. They also reminded me a little bit of Dalek's art, no?

    Best,

    1. Yes! Definitely!
      Growing up, I was fascinated by cyclops, but they usually involved scary looking monsters. This was such a softer look for a one-eyed entity!

  4. Woah! I’m really digging the template/theme of this blog. It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s tough to get that “perfect balance” between superb usability and visual appearance. I must say you’ve done a great job with this. Also, the blog loads super quick for me on Opera. Outstanding Blog!
