Fashion Lifestyle

farewell, november

November 30, 2010

The second December rolls around, I have Christmas on the brain 24/7…and this Tiffany & Co. ad isn’t helping one bit.

Despite having gone to school for advertising and then worked in both the magazine and fashion industries, shots like this get me all the time. I forget that it’s all carefully manufactured, and my heart lifts for a moment in anticipation of the next scene – I hold my breath, as I imagine she’s holding hers, and will the static photo into motion.

I guess this just goes to show you that little blue boxes really do make girls crazy. Even girls like me who a) know better and b) have occupied ring fingers, so to speak.

But still. Sigh.
