Guess what? I got a camera for my birthday! Woohoo! Thank the universe. I hopefully will have it by tomorrow, so I am borrowing one for now :). -insert sigh of relief- I forgot to write this yesterday, but I was standing in front of the Contemporary Arts Center (downtown Cincy) wearing this lipstick when a 40-50 year old man told me how ugly it was. Hmm. So I said "Thanks, that's really nice of you!". He retorted with, "well, I just thought you should know it's not your color- it doesn't look good." I won't bore you with the rest, but WOW. Let me set the record straight: If you are wearing BRIGHT ORANGE LIPSTICK, I don't think you are aiming to look hot as hell to random dudes. You think it is cool. The first question has been, "was he gay?" A resounding NO! Just a random, rude man. Believe it or not, this happens to me alot, and it blows my mind that so many men have such a lack of respect for women in public. -I am not saying ALL men, but it is 99% of the time a man who will say something sexual/rude/scary to me on the street. : /
Sorry for the rant, but I have been reading feminist literature & docu's/practicing common decency, and it is hard to not get worked up when things like that happen at least once a week. Ahhhh. Outfit! So, after my 4 day birthday (Whoa), I am sick of dresses! Never thought I'd say that! Thus, a very comfy seperates ensemble. I made the bow/headband this morning out of cuttings from a vintage jumpsuit I thrifted. Ladies! The best thing I started doing is saving all the cuttings from altering vintage- I always find a use for it; whether it be for a patch, a headband, a bow, etc.
Details! There are bows holding up the hair in the back :), some bobby pins, my shirt tag haha, and orange plastic heart earrings.
Mmmmm. Ethiopean was delicious last night! Favorite food ever, hands down. Followed by a tie: veggie & mango sushi OR various beans & rice recipes :). I'm making myself hungry :0.
Thank you to all my friends that got me great gifts & just spent time with me over the last few days! Love you :).
And new readers- sorry for the political-esque post (it's not really, lol), but had to get it off my chest! Thanks for reading, and checking out my outfits :).
