For what I lack in an awesome background, mind-blasting (watch Russell Peters) photography and photoshop skillzz, edgy face, flat stomach, long limbs, good hair (I swear to you, my fringe doesn’t always cover my left eye with a gaping hole in the middle) and a ferocious pose (I only do awkward – that’s the new cool), (Is this sentence so long you need to read from the top again?) I make it up in stripes.

Seriously, lots of stripes. You can say that I get cray-cray and tend to overcompensate. And with inappropriate stuff to boot!

Soooo we had to style around these stripey, cagey J West heels, and then I just decided to go with stripes. All. The. Way.

I actually put a lot of thought into the 140-character blurb that’s supposed to accompany our outfit, and account for 15% of our score. But alas, the organizers decided to leave it out altogether. I thought I could score at least in this category. But all my hopes are dashed ): Here’s what I wrote:

Two awesome outcomes of overdosing on stripes: Looking like your childhood hero, Hamburglar and creating a confusing Moiré effect to elongate and add subtle curves.

On hindsight, it sounds like I’m not making any point or saying anything at all. But I spent soo much time on it. I think it sounds nicer than what it actually means (if anything at all), hahahahha.

Btw, I know that everyone can see my bra and that I sorta have a glowing bust. BUT! my scarves match my bra, BRAHAHA!! I likkid.
