You Will Never Wear Commes

October 12, 2011

Instead of going home between classes and work, I’ve been shopping. Here are some of my purchases.

Top and skirt from H&M

This is one of those outfits that fashion bloggers would normally have pictures of them buying flowers or holding a baguette or doing something else equally adorable in.
I wore this and sat on a street corner lamenting the fact that I missed Kanye West when he went to Zuccotti Park to check out Occupy Wall Street. Then I had to go to work. I WILL BE YOUR DIRTY WHITE BITCH KANYE! I PROMISE!

Dress from Forever 21, Shoes by Gap, Purse by Chanel

I originally went shopping the other day because I needed some disgusting pants to wear to work (I work in a kitchen, I am not even going to pretend that I look cute at work. I wear jeggings and sperrys to work. I spend all of my time there covered in butter) Whenever I’m looking for gross pants to wear I go to Forever 21. As I was heading towards the check out line with my acid wash jeggings, this silver dress caught my eye.
I had visions of Anjelica Huston dancing, high on coke, at Studio 54. I would be Ms. Huston. I would be her in every Halston dress ever, but mine would only cost $30. I needed that dress.

Kat from my roommate

Unfortunately, once I put the dress on I realized that i looked like a Slavic porn star and/or a teenager in the 70’s nervously waiting for her boyfriend to pick her up on prom night.
I don’t care though, I will wear this dress forever.

Coming Soon to Gallery Pieces

Vintage Versace cut-offs, French Connection top

Look, I can’t get away from le fashion. Today I made a video demonstrating how my dress matches my ceiling. I have a problem, and I want to share the love with all of you (again). Starting…soon, AC aka Amanda Callahan and I will be doing “outfit” posts and transitioning the I Love Your Shoes tumblr over to here.

This does not mean I will stop covering #OccupyWallStreet. This is a “lifestyle” blog (I don’t know what that means, but sometimes I tell people this is NonSociety for hipsters so there’s that) and I don’t think that fashion and politics are mutually exclusive. If you’re not interested in fashion then…I’m sorry, but this is also the same blog that has a post about seeing penises all of the time, so maybe you should learn to embrace something beautiful (fashion, fashion is beautiful).

I know that many people see supporting #OccupyWallStreet and being a fan of fashion as mutually exclusive things. These people are wrong. The corporatization of fashion has ruined a lot of houses, the constant need for profit has turned the true couture artist into an endangered species and made luxury goods nothing but wretched status symbols. One can appreciate the artistry behind design and still be behind economic reform. Don’t worry, I’ll elaborate on all of this at a later date.

Linking the Revolution part 2 (Occupy the Links)

Once again, if you have any great articles or youtube videos that you would like to share, please leave a link in the comment section.

Linking the Revolution

October 7, 2011

To be honest, most main stream coverage of #OccupyWallStreet is pretty offensive. If you were to believe a lot of the coverage, most of the people marching and participating are crazy white folk with bad hygiene and two much time on their hands (okay, I am sort of all except the last). But there’s a lot more to the story. When I marched I was standing next to a group chanting in Spanish, which moved my white Puerto Rican heart like no other. I wore a Calvin Klein and ran into quite a few men dressed for business, why weren’t we in the New York Times’ Protest Fashion Slideshow?

I am sure I missed some great resources, if you have any please feel free to leave a link in the comments. Remember to stay informed, there’s a lot more happening than what the news would tell you.

I’d also like to urge everyone, no matter how they feel about the protest, to take an active role in how they get information. Analysis is the most important tool you have when it comes to being well informed.
