An imagined interior monologue, starting with my nose pressed against Georges Seurat's famous oil painting (above) and slowly backing away:

Well, that's dumb. It's just a bunch of dots. What the hell kind of painting is this? Anyone could do this shit! Georges Seurat? More like Georges Overrated. Heh, heh. Good one, Winona. Freakin' dots... Dippin' Dots sound really good, come to think of it. Maybe I'll grab some later. I wish all food came in Dippin' Dots form, like Broccoli Dots, that would be fun. I should call someone about tha--Wait, wait, is that a frolicking dog? Whooooaaa hold on! Grass! Grass! I see grass! A woman! People! It's a Sunday afternoon scene! This is the best painting ever!

A second imagined interior monologue, starting with my nose pressed against Karl Lagerfeld's sequined self-portrait tank top (above), and slowly backing away:

Oooohhh fun! Sequins! Shiny! Weeeeee! Gosh, does it get any better than sequins? And I love the black, white and grey. Tres chic, indeed! I need more sequins in my life, I think. No wonder I've been feeling down. Must increase sequin intake. Umm...are those sequin eyebrows? And sunglasses? What the hell? A nose? KARL LAGERFELD? Stop staring! I'm sorry! Please spare me, FOR THE LOVE OF GOD!

Oh my god. That tank instills feelings of both "wtf?" and "Chanel sounds yummy right about now!". I can almost feel Karl staring me down until I am a quivering puddle of Chanel-craving mush. Not to be dramatic or anything...

it's Free Dippin' Dots Day pretty soon.
i just thought i'd let you know.
so you can ask them to make you broccoli Dots.
although it might be like when the guy in accepted gets fired for trying to make a shrimp slushee because he's hungry AND thirsty at the same time.
do i really want karl lagerfeld staring menacingly out at the world from my abdominal region? no. it would be like having an overprotective (purple-sunglassed, sequined) father on my stomach. people would be like "who's that frowning dude on your shirt and why does he hate me?" and i'd be like "oh that's just karl. he's hard to win over."

I never realized that a sequined portrait of Karl Lagerfeld could look so much like....Max Headroom. Anyone? Anyone??

Hahaha the shirt is from, and the price, while bargain basement for Netaporter, is still three digits. If you do buy it, please please please wear it when you're 60 and send me a photo. I'll make sure to keep my email the same.

Awww, I owe Gala a big smooch for sending you my way!

Very impressive! I give you an A+.

hahahah I have the same types on internal monolouges- the sly little jokes, the thoughts about food.
I'm not sure about that tank top, it's pretty sweet but...karl looks so..young in this little portait. I'd totally wear it if more than one person (my fashion teacher) recognized him...maybe for my city outings haha

The Seurat is mind boggling, I've seen it upclose and it's fantastic!
