On certain days, there's nothing more challenging than picking out a head-turnin', thought provokin' ensemble. Anyone can put on a pair of pants and top, but most trendsetters do not want to be compared to everyone else. So we become sartorial savages: we feverishly re-pin, create look boards by tearing out pages from our favorite glossies and watch just about every retro film we can get our hands on. And then one day, usually when you least expect it, you put together an outfit that you are genuinely proud of.
"Hooray," you silently cheer to yourself, "Heads are turning! Thoughts are being provoked! Where is Bill Cunningham to photograph my latest success?"
Alas, the fame photographer is nowhere in sight (not to mention he may not be as smitten with your outfit as you may be, but let's just ignore that tiny detail because you look awesome). Consequently, you have to resort to the next best thing: forcing someone to take a picture of you. Self-centered? Of course. However, it's important to document your favorite ensembles-- it keeps the motivation to create that stellar ensemble alive.

Okay... I don't have the science to back that up just yet, but stay tuned!
