Holy Dances

dress - DIY // coat - c/o Sammy Dress // belt - vintage // sunglasses - Miracle Eye // shoes - Miracle Eye

Let's spend a few seconds to take in the fact that this dress exists and is on my body. And doesn't cover my underwear. Heh. I would love to sell dresses like this one through Miracle Eye, but silk velvet (which is what this dress is made of) plus some more really expensive beaded fringe = out of most of my customer's budgets. Blah.

Also, for those of you who read an older post of mine from a week or so ago, you know about that gang rape case in Delhi, India.. and you know that humans are fucking sick, twisted, things, right? No surprise.. but, I read this article a few days ago, that only proved humans are sick, twisted, and a joke to say the least. The lawyer representing three of the men charged with the gang rape murder believes that the assault was the victim's fault, and the men are not to blame. I CAN'T. WHAT. HAS HE HEARD OF LOGIC?

STUPID LAWYER THOUGHT NUMBER ONE: He states that he has never heard of a ***respected lady*** being raped in India. I CAN'T x2.

STUPID LAWYER THOUGHT NUMBER TWO: He believes that the female victim should have 'chanted God's name and fallen at the feet of the feet of the attackers' to stop the assault. I CAN'T x3.

STUPID LAWYER THOUGHT NUMBER THREE: He states that the man accompanying the female victim should not have been traveling back late in the evening know they were going to use public transport. He also states that it was the ***man's responsibility*** to protect the woman and that he failed his duty. I CAN'T x infinity.

How are these male rapists and male lawyer the same species as me???????????????????

That shit in Dehli is just beyond...I don't even have a coherent way to respond. And it feels strange to talk about your rad dress in the same paragraph but, it's a pretty fucking incredible thing to be the owner of. Love, mom

your dress is a dream!!

ugh, I CANNOT DEAL WITH THAT. idk how, why or just the sheer disgusting-ness that surrounds us, even if it's in India. WTF.

Sonja Johnson said...

That dress is sooo gorgeous.. and about the rape, ugh, I just don't get it... what kind of people can seriously think to themselves that it's ok to do something like that/blame the victim? wtf I just don't get it. GAHH.

lets just punch every person in the world who victim blames. ugh.! I can't. I CAN'T

This look is amazing. Men are generally pigs everywhere, but you'll find a lot of this overseas. Especially in the middle east and male-dominated cultures like Italy (I once read a news story about a rape trial in Italy where the judge ruled the woman was not raped because she was wearing jeans, and no one can take someone's jeans off without the person wearing them assisting....) We are lucky to live in America--Oprah once said that the luckiest women in the world are born in the United States, and that is so true. We take for granted rights and freedoms that women in a lot of countries do not have.

I always feel like it would really really suck to be the lawyer of an obviously guilty party because like HOW WOULD YOU EVER TRY TO JUSTIFY THEIR ACTIONS but at the same time you have to. But like obviously THAT DOES NOT CONDONE VICTIM BLAMING EVER HOLY SHIT. Obviously that lawyer is a piece of crap anyways.

I don't even know how to add in the fact that your dress rocks without sounding really petty and silly after talking about that but um it's super fuckin beautiful and reminds me of this one that I got in Santee alley with madzzz and izzz when I was in LA so it's giving me LA feelings right now. Ok luv u bb <3

Abby said...

That is probably the most ridiculous thing I've EVER heard. What an absolute fucking idiot that Lawyer is. They are all pathetic excuses for human beings and I genuinely hope they all rott to death in prison, alongside that Lawyer!

Anyway, you look gorgeous as always! Your hair is perfect. xx

That's so weird and twisted and really freaking fucked up. How can people actually be that stupid??!?! I can't believe that we live in the same world as these people. I really cant. And it's so depressing.
But hey - even though it makes us wanna kill ourselves, we need to turn that energy into doing something about it. And that's totally what you're doing by writing these posts.
Ur great and intelligent and we need people to pay attention to social equality.. and your dress also.

First thought: this dress, your hair, shoes, and sunglasses=perfection. Like, ready to go out and buy it all, perfection.

Second thought. I was literally angry reading about the case you shared. How can that lawyer even think those things, let alone saying them out loud.

And I agree--how the hell can they be of the same species.


Ellie Connor-Phillips said...

Amazing photos as always, you look perfect in every post...and I totally agree. I mean, they say it's the victims fault, but what does that even mean?!
