I recently, because I have decided to enter the year 2000, have discovered the "prt sc" button on my computer's keyboard.
And because polyvore won't "clip" images for me to use in my polyvore sets when J. Crew and all the others use Adobe Flash Player for their cool outfit looks they often publish on the front pages of their websites, I decided I needed to figure this junk out already.
And here's the thing...you all, the most savvy or at least semi-computer literate out there, have been doing this "print screen" thing for years...and the pin didn't drop for me until. three. weeks. ago. when I accidentally touched the "prt sc" button instead of the backspace button, and a little photo appeared at the bottom of my screen that said "screen shot saved."* BING! Aha! So that's how all those bloggers got the awesome images of outfits and models and catalog shots that I couldn't save or clip to polyvore, etc.
*It saved an e-mail I was writing to Mr. Dina one day...the day I was REALLY mad at him. Heehee...I now have physical, photographic proof that I am capable of sticking up for myself. ;)
Those of you who have been doing this for years, my hat is off to you.
And yes...I was the girl who worked at both Babbages and Software, Etc. back in 1993 and 1994. I fear my "hot computer girl" cred will go down the tubes by admitting I just discovered the "prt sc" button, but to be fair, back in 1993 and 1994 most computers were big hulking machines with a mouse running on its mouse wheel to keep the processor, you know, processing. LOL. ;)
Okay, so what is this HUGE aside about me being a computer not so nerd leading towards?
I really really love many of the clean, classic, and fun, colorful looks that my favorite retailers are coming out with, and since I love to have the images for my polyvore account so I can create outfit sets (inspiration, you all!), I figured I would just say "stuff it" to Adobe Flash Player and screen shot the heck out of my faves and publish them here on my blog.
So tonight is J. Crew Factory, but I have images from regular J. Crew, Boden, and Madewell that I will be publishing soon enough...
And as long as the companies keep coming up with adorable outfit ideas and pretty catalog images, I will continue to keep publishing posts like this!
(Angela, like Edda, is one of my most favorite J. Crew/Boden models, so I love seeing her modeling again. J. Crew is smart to pick up on the love many of us have for the old school J. Crew models. Now if only they would bring back Vanessa.)
What have you been inspired by from J. Crew factory lately?
