You know I love me some GOOP. Gwennie is totally a massive role model for me. Beautiful? Check. Unrealistically thin? Check. So completely out of touch with the 99%? Check and double Check.
So I relish reading GOOP as it lands in my inbox - every since section. I’m not quite yet blinded enough to buy GOOP collab products, but I’m REAL close. (HEY GOOP - HERE’S A TIP - How about some GOOP x de Gournay wallpaper prints as blank note cards! HELLO. I’m a genius). Anyways, this week she suggests reading about Alain de Botton on Art in the Home. He discusses how the placement of art in one’s home set the tone and atmosphere of each area by reminding you of who you are and strive to be. Not really rocket science but then OMFG this section comes up:
SORROW IN THE BATHROOM.
I SHIT U NOT. There is a picture of a CRUCIFIED JESUS as a suggested piece to put in the toliet room.
WHY MIGHT U ASK?!?!
“In Velazquez’s Crucifixion, the son of God, the King of Kings, lies bleeding like an ordinary stricken man on the cross. He will be dead in a few moments.
Christianity is upfront about the idea that our lives can be burdened by suffering. It takes the view that loss, self-reproach, failure, regret, sickness and sadness will always find ways of entering life. Our troubles need practical help, of course. But Christianity identifies another need as well: for our suffering to have some honour or dignity.
This picture of the Crucifixion gives dignity to suffering. It shows a good - indeed perfect - man being humiliated, injured and ultimately killed. It is tenderly sympathetic to sorrow without being hysterical or vengeful.
It invites us to contemplate the centrality of suffering in the achievement of all valuable goals. Rather than concentrate on the moment of fulfilment - when one feels the joy of success - it directs our attention to the times of hardship and sacrifice and says they are the most important, the most deserving of admiration.
It strengthens us a little - and offers consolation - for the hard tasks of our lives.”
Hard task being pooping obviously. To poop with sorrow. Expel your grief and humiliation!
The Zara vs. PS turned out horribly in real life so I’m still looking for ways to get what I want for fall AND CHANEL FW 2013 (UHHHh totes amaze and picking up a jacket and dress and boots for sureeee). This looks Close enough.
There is an absolute F***ing bunch of faux hippies who made some money in the dotcom world and now squawking about spirit labs, meditation and painting parties and generally horrific psuedo feel good shitz.

If I were a size 2 and very tall, I would totes pick up this Chloe SS2012 “inspired” skirt available at ASOS.com for only $70.
But I’m not a size 2 or tall so I’ll just live vicariously through you lucky statuesque bishes. I think you should pair it with a crop top for that extra F*CK YOU I’ve got the dream body you wish you had-cherry-on-top-nyah-nyah.
