The cop who shot a dog in front of its 6 year old owner was fired after outrage from the community and a “Justice for Apollo” campaign.
The cop who shot an unarmed black teen is on paid leave and remains protected by his department. So far, days of outrage and protest have still not brought any justice to Mike Brown.
In America, in 2014, the life of a black man is valued less than that of a dog.
Fuck. Respectability. Politics.
I feel so useless sitting here. What can I do to help Ferguson??

Where do you shop at ? luv luv your style
Oh Nonnie…thank you!
Right now my shopping is mainly a mix of ASOS, Zara, vintage, Etsy, and that tried and true Forever 21. I tend to cycle through moods and looks quickly so fast fashion suits me, but I have select pricey pieces that are special to me (re: my vintage furs & some handmade jewelry).

Hang in there.
Oh blogosphere, how busy I have been! I promise I will update soon.
It’s been a whirlwind of travel, all-nighters, looming fashion week deadlines, my sister moving, photoshoots, and family.
I’ve got late LA photos to post, a birthday coming up, and so much to share with you.
From the land of coffee and no sleep, I hope to see you soon.

Just putting this here again

Never here for Iggy.

THIS IS MARRIAGE!!
Permission to be a bad ass. Nod.
He looks back at the guy like, “SEE THAT? SHE SAID YES. YOU’RE SO FUCKED.”
Like, guys. Sparta was so kick ASS sometimes when it came to women. Spartan women were given these small knives so that if their husbands came home and tried to hit them or assault them, they had a weapon within reach. That weapon was for CUTTING THEIR HUSBANDS’ FUCKING FACES so that when he went out in public everyone would know he was an asshole, abusing jerkface and they would publicly shame him.
I DID NOT KNOW THAT THAT IS GREAT
LET’S JUST TALK ABOUT SPARTAN WOMEN FOR A SECOND.
In Sparta, women could own land and were considered citizens. THAT IS A HUGE BIG FUCKING DEAL. Why? Because that was RARE AS FUCK and there are lots of places TODAY where women don’t even get that much.
Divorce was totally fine, and a woman could expect to keep her own wealth and get custody of the kids because paternal lineage wasn’t very important. And it didn’t make her a pariah! She could totally remarry, no big deal at all.
Spartan women participated in some fuckin’ badass sporting events, too. And because they were expected to be as physically fit as the Spartan menfolk (who all had to serve compulsory military duties, btw, and couldn’t marry until they finished them at thirty) they didn’t have time for lots of swishy dresses. So they wore notoriously short skirts. According to some accounts, their thighs were visible at all times. HOLY SHIT.
Also, In Sparta men only got their names on their graves if they died in battle. And women? Women only got their names on their graves if they died in childbirth. THE SPARTANS COMPARED CHILDBIRTH TO FUCKING BATTLE AND IT WAS VIEWED AS A GODDAMN BADASS AND HONORABLE WAY TO GO OUT.
FUCKING SPARTAN WOMEN. THIS DUDE HAD FUCKIN’ BETTER MAKE SURE SHE’S COOL WITH WHATEVER HE’S DOING, IF HE KNOWS WHAT’S FUCKIN’ GOOD FOR HIM.
^^ I throughly enjoyed the history lesson dashed with the colorful adjectives.
New fav post because of the comments!
Where was all this when we studied Ancient Greece in sixth grade?
I got a banana tree from a client!
I feel like not killing my plants has been a real achievement of adulthood in the past year, like when you can actually walk in high heels or start to enjoy the taste of wine. Since I mostly feel like a kid playing dress up, my reign of terror on plants coming to a close is a funny point of pride.
me about to do a powerpoint presentation
The other night I accidentally achieved my dream hair and I’m sorry internet, but I’m posting it everywhere for posterity because the likelihood of achieving this again is slim to none and I just need to remember it happened.
And yes, I wear this shirt a lot.

"Creative people are confident in only one thing: their own doubt. I think there’s a huge lack of self-confidence in a creative person because, by nature, the definition of a creative person is someone who is trying to make something new. They know, if they are professional creatives, that the likelihood of doing that—making something new and significant—is hugely unlikely, so they build within that city of doubt. From doubt, they get to iterate and work extremely hard, hoping to find something new; it’s all about hope. I’ve never met anyone who is good at what they do creatively and is super-confident. Maybe they pretend to be confident in front of their agent or the media, but I’ve never been confident in that way."
