Black stockings

I put on some black tights today. I was going to wear them with a black skirt and black ankle boots, but then I remembered this image:

Mary Kate Olsen looking so thin and lovely in them...

So I took them off and wore jeans insead. I just want to be able to wear black tights/stockings and not look like a cow...


And then there's this gorgeous model, Carla Hermannsen:

Ashes, ashes, we all fall down...

(Remember you can click to expand these - they don't look good this small, esp. the top one).

A poem.

Frank O’Hara

I'm having a real day of it.

There was
something I had to do. But what?
There are no alternatives, just
the one something.

I have a drink,
it doesn't help – far from it!
feel worse. I can’t remember how
I felt, so perhaps I feel better.
No. Just a little darker.

If I could
get really dark, richly dark, like
being drunk, that’s the best that’s
open as a field. Not the best,

but the best except for the impossible
pure light, to be as if above a vast
prairie, rushing and pausing over
the tiny golden heads in deep grass.

Enough with the models...

How 'bout some real girl?

Love the jeans.

She's just gorgeous.

There's a girl at my gym who looks just like this one:

I feel like such a loser because I wanna snap a quick pic of her on my phone for my thinspo collection. Of course, she'd think I was some sort of perv...

I just want to be able to wear leggings and not feel like a cow.
