    Funnily enough, my school WAS on the list of college libraries (barely). I feel bad though, because I have yet to set foot in Fisher. -__-

    That computer generated model issue from H&M is ridiculous. I mean, I can’t believe everyone is saying such bad things about it, I prefer it to real models! That way I can say “Hmm will this colour look good with my skin tone? Well, I have the same skin tone as her.. so I can check!”
    Then people are saying it creates unrealistic expectations – and yet, models do the same but are worse because most models are even skinner than these computer generated ones!

    I just can’t believe it. People will argue over anything nowadays.
