Birds

Birds_1 Birds_2 Birds_3

Wearing:

H&M bird print top
Bebe gray leggings
Zara pink boyfriend blazer
Steve Madden "Graanie" boot in Stone
Vintage purse
Vintage jewelry
Mac "Girl About Town" lipstick
Essie "Master Plan" nail polish

These pictures were taken this past weekend in Nevada.  The first picture was a complete accident!  I'm glad I got some pretty Canadian Geese in the background.  In the second picture, you can actually see who was scaring these birds: a little girl and her dog.  It was kind of mean because these birds migrate, so it's not like they're just hanging out and playing on the grass like everyone else.   But maybe I'm just a little sensitive about it because I'm a bird lady ;)

Anyway, I've been a bit bummed out because of Prop 37 not passing.  On Tuesday night I kept checking the live results.  I was amazed at how close it was to passing.  Every county in California was almost 50/50 on prop 37 (check it out here).  My county voted "yes" overall by a mere 3%!  It was also interesting to note that the majority of counties who voted "no" were in the Central Valley...where most of our fruits and vegetables come from.  It's unfortunate how corrupt some of our growers are.  But it shouldn't come as to any surprise to me.  Especially when I know that there are people making a profit out of selling you cancer-causing GMOs.

The good thing about the results is that more people are becoming aware of GMOs. So even though prop 37 didn't pass...we still won.  Now there are more people than ever who are aware of the negative effects of genetically modified foods.  And that's a win in my book!  :)

Have a good week, dolls!  Thank you so much for reading.

  7. I just found your blog and I can't believe how beautiful these pics are. I love the top and the entire background, and I can definitely relate with how some aspects of the election were frustrating. Great post mixing fashion & politics you made it work!!

  26. I was thinking of you as I saw the results. It was pretty divided. I agree though, it has raised awareness. Maybe next time. I think I remember you having a vintage bird print dress? Or something from your mom that is bird print? I feel like the Long Island Medium. ha.

  31. My gosh, what a wonderful coincidence in that first shot! Those poor little scared birds went perfectly with your outfit!

    I'm sorry your prop 37 did not pass. Eventually, I believe it will. To the best of my knowledge, such a proposition has never made it to a ballot in FL. But I could be wrong.
