Buying Clothes Online

I've started buying clothes mostly on the internet. I enjoy being able to browse without having to interact with other human beings. But like any pasture with bright green grass, it has it's own special cow pies. For me it's only been one, big, obvious cow pie in the room.

Awkward posing.

Martha Graham. Dramatic. Famous. 

Martha Graham. Dramatic. Famous. 

Here's Martha Graham, a very famous, artistic ballet dancer. Her pose gets more jig-like, the longer I stare at this photo... But that's nutso, what she's doing with that baby sling. Anyway, let's imagine for a moment, that I'm possibly interested in purchasing the outfit she's wearing. Unless someone photographs me midaction, I will never be in this pose in my life. So before deciding on whether that outfit is for me, I'd probably want to see her wearing that in a more laid back pose. 

What's that, Martha? Oh, that is laid back.

'K.

This is not Martha Graham. She might be famous, she's definitely dramatic and pretty. But what I'm supposed to be deciding on here is if I should buy the shirt. I'm not sure when in my life I'll ever be posed like that. I'm sure if the moment arrives, a trusted friend or family member will be close by to laugh so loudly at me that you'll be able to hear it in space.

This is what the reality of the clothes in the pictures is for me, so when I can't find a picture of a normally posed person wearing them, it's usually a no go.
