Just browsing


These photos of people shopping for jewelry make me feel sad somehow, but I don't know why. Also, is there anything more earnest than an image of a woman looking at herself searchingly in the mirror?

Those are gorgeous photographs! They do seem so distant and unreal in a way though.

I love the last photo. There's a girl in a black coat on the right hand side of the photo that fascinates me, the beads all over that counter make me drool, and I wish I could wear fur jackets shopping! (it's quite frowned upon I've noticed).

Is it because they are looking to buy dreams? And no, there is nothing more earnest than a woman looking at herself in the mirror.
