DAZED


shorts and sunglasses - Miracle Eye // shirt - vintage and DIY // jacket - UNIF // boots - thrifted // jewelry - vintage/flea markets/Etsy

Today was super awesome. Pizza is always good, and so are friendz. I'm digging my accessories here, too. Throughout blogging I've learned to appreciate jewelry. I didn't realize the goodness in it until after a few months into blogging, but jewelry sure can make or make an outfit. The type of jewelry worn also tells a lot about a person, just like their choice of sandwich.. I think that's the only time it's okay to judge someone. Buuuuut I want to show you two videos:


Now, both of these videos make me express emotions in extremes, the first video makes me physically sick and disgusted, while the second one makes me excited and optimistic about adult dinners in the real world. My initial reaction to that first video had me teary eyed a minute in from sadness. My dad and I were watching the Democratic National Convention last night, and after realizing that we have a black president (I have obviously known that Barack Obama has been our president for the past few years, it was just in that moment that it really sunk in), I expressed to my dad my happiness with that fantastic fact. I had made the realization shortly after I made that comment that just less than fifty years ago racism was legal, prominent, and ENFORCED. My face portrayed disbelief. What the FUCK. My dad promptly opened his laptop and showed me that video and that was that. After three minutes and thirty-one seconds of silence in the room, he just said to me, "that's racism today." I couldn't believe my eyes or my ears. This dude, how is it POSSIBLE for him to have gone so far in America and become as successful as he's become, with that mindset?! I DON'T FUCKING UNDERSTAND. I CAN'T. I JUST CANNOT. 

The second video is good. Good music + good dancing = Great. Duh. Anyways, I'd like to hear your thoughts on that first video, and second video too (if you've got a sense of humor, heh). The interview was published in October of last year, so I'm definitely late, but for those of you who are watching it for the first time, I would love to know what you think. Or if you've seen it before, tell me what you thought.

WOW, the guy in the first video; way to be an ignorant jerk!!! I've never seen it before and I don't know who he is but that doesn't keep me from getting freakin' pissed. One thing is to have that kind of opinions, another thing is to gladly share them in public (but I guess if you're unintelligent enough to think like that, nothing better can be expected). Oh, by the way; this outfit rocks and how do you get your hair to be that color? I tried to dye my hair grey yesterday but because I'm not blonde it didn't work :-( (Sorry about the long comment :--))
