The musings, rantings, longings, and fawnings of a teenage fashion maven with a propensity for writing.

I've heard it said that originality is really only undetected plagarism.
When it's detected, however, you just look like an asshole.

I don't know about you, but I fail to see a shred of coincidence here. Gaultier's always maintained a derivative vision, but this is just embarrassing. The French government should bestow their Haute Couture grants upon true innovators, not theives. Call it a "trend", call it a "current look". I call it thievery, and it's not right.

About Me

My photo
Really, I don't want to be that stereotypical gay teenager who blogs about fashion...but I'm out of my head for the whole affair, it simply can't be helped! I'm going to communicate what's on my mind, say/do what you will! I do care about said thoughts, though, I cannot lie. I guess I'm somewhat intelligent, but not very mature. I am, in turns, a minimalist and a maximalist. Sorry I'm fifteen. I live near Boston. Blah. My interests aren't as insular as they appear! I swear! I do theater, I love photography, and I write. Obviously, I suppose. Thanks for humoring me. No, really.
