At Cosmo, we love fash­ion in­spi­ra­tion off the streets, which is why we’ve been fer­vently fol­low­ing photo-blog­gers like The Sar­to­ri­al­ist (‘in­spi­ra­tion’ for The Sar­cas­tial­ist, BTW), Stock­holm Street Style, and Tommy Ton. But now, there’s a new so­cial-me­dia ob­ses­sion in town, and it’s kinda mak­ing fun of all our fave street-style blogs. The anony­mous founder of @Sar­cas­tial­ist takes well-dressed people’s pho­tos off fa­mous blogs, and cap­tions them with tonnes of wit and re­al­ism. “The Sar­cas­tial­ist came about be­cause of the way the people in ‘street style’ blogs are por­trayed. We’re meant to think these char­ac­ters are hav­ing a much bet­ter time than we are... Spend­ing all day drink­ing eight quid cap­puc­ci­nos, be­fore rid­ing home on their Dan­ish rac­ing bikes to watch Jean-Luc Go­dard films,” the Liver­pool-based founder told Buz­zfeed. com. “This might be true but I’m con­vinced they have to worry about wait­ing in for the Ice­land feller, or get­ting mince out of the freezer as much as the rest of us, so I thought it would be nice to show an­other an­gle,” he adds. Bot­tom line: if you’re look­ing for a good guf­faw dur­ing lunch hour, fol­low this clever ac­count!
