This is very close to where I live. I hope they get it under control; it’s been very hot and dry lately…. Lots of tragic stuff happening around Hagg Lake this year. 

Fuck. FUCK another west-side fire. This one is even closer to home!

I’m afraid it’s gotten a lot worse since yesterday. Here’s the update from about 20 minutes ago. 

Oh god oh god. Too close to home.

HUGS TIGHT I AM SO SORRY THIS IS HAPPENING STERN AND I HOPE YOU ARE OKAY AND EVERYTHING IS OKAY 

Oh shit, that’s really close to where my parents and brother live.  And close to where I am too, but I am several miles away, and they are far less miles away. :(

Guys. GUYS. This comic. This dadgum comic—Stinz—is charming and hilarious at best and heartwrenching at worst, and beautiful all the way.
Also Bruna and Stinz are, frankly, the cutest thing.
Guys. GO READ THIS, GOSH.

Yeeeessss!  Go and read Stinz!  And while you’re at it, go and read Desert Peach, too. :D

This dress makes me want to die

Fuck me alive

Holy shit

utterly jealous.

I NEED THIS WHAT

I have a mighty, mighty need

Sorry I’m going to be the mean old wet blanket for a minute.
The reason why this dress looks so amazing is the shape of the figure in the photo. It’s partially the way the model is standing (legs crossed so that her hip width and angle looks even more extreme and dramatic, very popular pose in fashion photos) and the fact that she’s likely wearing a corset or other shaper underneath. Otherwise the cut of the dress itself is rather simple. It wouldn’t look anything like that without such a dramatic hourglass shape… which no human being has naturally. It also looks like it might require double-sided tape to be held up at the bust.
It looks more like a fussy costume than a functional dress that I’d actually wear somewhere. As a seamstress I’d be more impressed if it was actually cut to give the wearer the illusion of such lines rather than requiring a very uncomfortable undergarment. It also needs more natural support in the bust or even some minimal straps.
tl;dr a) This dress wouldn’t look like this on ANYBODY unless you were wearing some extreme shapers and standing with your legs crossed constantly and b) it would be constantly falling down or threatening to expose you if you bend over slightly because the bust would have to be rigid.
Though I do love the fabric. Velvet gowns are a soft spot of mine.

Nah, I completely understand that, and honestly, I’d probably be going for it because of the fussy costume nature of the beast.  That’s mostly just me being contrary and insisting on impossible costumes, but if I had the right corset for underneath and lots of fashion tape, I would very much love to do a photoshoot in something like this.

DAILY FIND: Sometimes the Internet is a crappy place full of crap. But today I’m reminded that it’s an amazing trove of free and good information from reliable sources: The University of Illinois Extension has created a searchable index of every stain known to man and stain removal solutions for each. The tool will even tell you what your window of stain-treatment time is to achieve optimal results.

This is nerd GOLD, people. Use it in good health. -ts
