“You waaaaalked into the partyyyy, like you were walkin’ onto a yacht…” (Top five fave songs ever for the record.) Carly Simon-loving aside; I am not vain, I’ve just decided to de-anonymize chicandyoushallfind due to a good friend and fellow blogger’s advice. This discerning chica refuses to follow anyone that doesn’t post pics of themselves as that automatically deems them “fat. phrumpy. and unstylish.”

 

I have been anti-visual self promotion for the opposite mantra: those narcissistic bloggy glamour shots sorta make. my tummy. turn. As a stylist, I always say there is a reason I work behind the lens and the late great photog Irving Penn said why best: “The camera makes me nervous–it’s like a razor blade. I’d like to protect myself from the incisions it can make.” Did you know he had only a few pictures of himself in a lifetime of prolific shutterbugging? And they were late-in-career self portraits when he was facing his own mortality? Well, I’d like to think I’m far from my deathbed and would love for my readers to know I am not “fat,” “phrumpy,” or “unstylish” so please forgive my flaws and keep reading (these images could obv use a retouch or five:)
