I went shopping yesterday because my wardrobe is seriously lacking in the color purple. And today is the national day to wear purple and commemorate the eleven people who have committed suicide this year due to homophobia and oppression in their homes and institutions. The color purple was chosen because on the flag this color stands for Spirit.
Picture found on the Fashion Pirates.
Rest in Peace Tyler Clementi, Seth Walsh, Justin Aaberg, Raymond Chase, Asher Brown, Cody J. Barker, Harrison Chase Brown, Caleb Nolt, Billy Lucas, Jeanine Blanchette, and Chantal Dube
Wearing all vintage...I shortened the skirt last night while watching sex and the city and made the bow out of the extra fabric (I used THIS tutorial on YouTube.) Its not perfect but I find it charming and better that way.
I wrote a post about this on Lickity Splits website, which is a zine that promotes positive pan-sexual expression. For more information and for videos go to my post HERE.
