rachel ballinger

[rachel+ballinger.jpg]


just someone i've been crushing on lately. oh you know, another downtown nyc social type. friends with harley viera-newton, jack siegel, chrissie miller; the usual..

three reasons to crush on miss ballinger:

1. her childlike eyes are enhanced by those refreshingly unkempt eyebrows, like a schoolgirl who hasn't yet come into contact with tweezers.

2. her tendency to wear simple vest tops sans-bra, modest button ups and general boyish clothing combinations; jeans and a white tee here, or a blazer slung over layered cardigans and breton stripes.

3. and something that in my eyes is paramount, miss ballinger smiles for the camera. no dead eyes, and no moody "hey, i appear to have a fag in my hands, well, i guess that makes me pretty progressive" stares. if she's having a good time, she'll show it with a flash of her gnashers. and a swipe of orange lippie adds extra "i love you" points.

have a look at her fashion spot thread here. particularly like her opening ceremony spring 2009 lookbook snaps..

shes defffff inspiring. kind of innocent/sweet/nice looking with a hint of playfulness and a bit of a rebel vibe coming through.

and.. i have such a weird thing for heavy/defined eyebrows when they are done RIGHT! they can seriously make a person so much more appealing to me. im a eyebrow freak aha,

It´s so interesting to see who people notice and crush on. Never heard of the girl, but yep, she looks very innocent and charming.

again. she looks like my cousin - scary.

i almost cant see beyond it sometimes & thats too bad.

i need to try to separate the two.

not that i dont like my cousin or anything, of course not. its just odd to see someone looking so much like her. i dont see the other girl & instead always see my cousin. & thats weird. haa.
