Free Time! Oh yeah and a self indulgent poll

...Or not. Regardless, I'm killing time with or without the illusion of consequence.

Sooo I was perusin' this post on Fashionista.com about Benetton. In that "why the hell not vein", I usually check out their seasonal releases because every season, they manage to employ an advertising trick that makes their clothes look appealing.



They just make really effective styling choices. Like these nudes and neutrals with neon pink. Arggg, neutrals and neon. And knit!



On the left, diggin' the quilted sleeves, reminds me of Phi F/W '07 (I'd say with this, it's almost straying into rip-off territory, actually...)

On the right, I feel like neon shiny puffer jackets are generally a Bad Choice in real life, but they just styled this one here so damn appealingly. It makes me wonder why I don't have a grey knee-length knit skirt yet. Indeed, why not.

And on the subject of appealing:



I know Benetton often tries to be controversial in their ads, but I don't think they deliberately went for it in these two (separate) ads. I mean, they're delightful...

While we're STILL on the subject, might as well throw in a couple more coveting things:



SO DELICIOUS LOOKING. Flavored marshmallows... I think it's the cube shape that gets me. They could be viewed as soap or blocks of tofu, which makes them look more delicious to me. Because I love eating soap and blocks of tofu. From Mia Mallows.

Also:



SO... EDIBLE LOOKING? Looks like crumbled pie crust. Oh, right and it's also constructed beautifully. From Crutch.

If you've made it this far down the page, congratulations. Your reward is helping me with this poll. Unfortunately, it's hard to make a poll without feeling snobby... regardless.

I've recently confirmed that I'm going to study abroad in Florence, Italy next semester. Yep, next year the title of this blog will become even more irrelevant.

Anyways, my current school bag is a sad sight to behold, and I'd very much like to look for a new one. I'm wondering, though, if I should try to look around heres (which I have been.. for half a year) for a big bag, or wait 'til I get to Italy, the "place where there are bags everywhere" apparently. If you've been to Italy and know of these things, I'd love to hear your comments. And another thing: I'd probably be magically more willing to drop dolla billz on a bag abroad. Nonetheless:


Should I try to find a bag before I go to Florence or should I eff that and wait til I get there?
Get one here
Get one there
Neither; just pray
One can never have enough bags.

Not the most ideal topic for a first poll, but hey~!
