It's a well-known fact that all of the best chick-flicks include a serious makeover montage. It's probably not the most useful life lesson - a new haircut and a flattering dress won't actually solve life's biggest problems (believe me I've tried), but it's such a great moment when a sympathetic character emerges from a salon refreshed and ready to take on the world in totally impractical shoes.
Thus, I've decided that the blog I've neglected for the past year and a half deserves it's own makeover. It's losing the metaphorical flannel shirt and frizzy hair and embracing face-framing layers and some shiny new heels. I've changed the name (which I'm still unsure about - it may change again some time in the near future) and the color scheme. Now I just need to change my blog-neglecting ways!
Since we're on the subject of movie makeovers, here are a few of my faves (in no particular order):
|Elton couldn't stick around for more pictures because he really needed to get his Cranberries CD from the Quad.|
|I can't say anything sarcastic about this. It's just too adorable.|
|Hipster Elle was colorblocking before it was cool.|
|"That blonde wig I wore at the beginning of the movie? Big mistake. HUGE."|
|"You're like, really pretty. So... you agree? You do think you're pretty?"|
I could go on forever, because while I can't find my way from neighborhood to my office without GPS, I can give you a comprehensive list of every movie makeover in a romantic comedy without even consulting IMDB.
Until next time, may the soundtrack to Clueless be stuck in your heads.
