#teenvogue (Shirt: c/o Off Our Chests Pants: Crest Sunnies: Ray Ban)
This is going to be a bit rambly, until I get to the point.
Who remembers when Emma Watson's leg disappeared from the Burberry ad she was posing in?
That was funny. And then we realized that they had actually erased her leg.
Photoshopping gone kaput.
Now, we have turned the name of a product into a generally wide term for anything from erasing a freckle, or erasing some flyaway hair, to you know, CUTTING A WHOLE LEG OFF.
I don't have anything against photoshopping in general. I mean, I don't really want to see acne when I look at a model in Vogue. But I find it to be very sneaky when someone shows you a picture of "a natural look you can achieve at home" and the model has a face that is basically impossible. And there is absoulutely no reason they have to tell you that the reason her face is impossible is because it is, as it was created on a computer.
This is where this t-shirt comes in. I was sent this by the lovely people at Feel More Better, whose mission is to make me feel better. and you too. They're urging people to sign the Media and Public Health Act which will basically force advertisers to put SOMEWHERE, even if it's in tiny print only a budgie can read, that that photo was in some way altered.
So to get things rolling:
The photos on my blog are not altered in any way. Except for the filter on my camera. Trust me, you don't want to see my street in straight sunlight. Promise.
I hope you got my point. If you didn't, here it was: Erase legs, put legs where they don't belong, move eyebrows, add weight, drop weight, whatever. Just tell me you did it.
Or maybe, with the leg thing, just don't do it at all.
And how do you LOVE my ghetto-fabulous pants? Theres a funny story behind why they have all those holes. But alas, that's for another time.
Also, I have finally learned how to do a sock bun.
Be nice. No hating on someones happy.
