Burberry Spring 2012


The Spring 2012 Burberry collection rocked my world. It exemplified exactly what I want to look like and what I want to wear. This came as a surprise to me. When I think Burberry, I tend to picture Emma Watson wearing a well-made grey trench coat and standing among many attractive male models. While this is not at all a negative image (I love Emma Watson, Harry Potter’s amazing—duh), it isn’t exactly BAM! This perception of the brand, I admit, is limited to my viewing of its ad campaigns in Vogue, so maybe I am wrong in saying this but JEEZUM. This Spring collection was not the simple silhouette and monochromatic color scheme that I had expected. While I didn’t attend the show (umm I wish..), I was befuddled by the spangled, layered  clothes that I saw in photographs. What makes it so great? The texture? The blatant accessorizing (belts, hats)? The color? Maybe it’s a combination of all these elements that make it so exciting. 

A review of...Troll 2!

With an outstanding 2.3 out of 10 stars on IMDb and a ranking of 47th on the worst movies of all time, Troll 2 stands alone. For those of you who have yet to see this magnificent creation of a movie, the basic plot line(without giving it away, heaven forbid...) has to do with a family of four (including the illustrious Joshua Waits, the youngest child with a habit of encountering his deceased grandfather.) who decide to spend their summer in a quaint little town known as "Nilbog". Unfortunately, the Waits Family can't seem to escape the grasps of those nasty little vegetarian goblins that seem to inhabit the area! The movie, which came out in October of 1990 has received quite a large cult following, although many seem to love it predominately for it's awfulness. As one reviewer wrote: "If you're looking for the worst horror film ever, then it truly is right here."
