We're all normal and we want our freedom. [Dec. 14th, 2007|12:01 am]

[music |Under My Thumb by the Rolling Stones]

It might sound strange to say, but the cover of a vintage woman's magazine from 1960's Iran symbolizes almost everything that I believe in. The women sitting together so outwardly and openly symbolize sisterhood and female friendships. The tranquil mountain scenery in the backdrop symbolizes inner peace and harmony withe the world outside. Most importantly, their above knee skirts and jewel-colored garments symbolize social freedom and mobility. Look at their elaborately coiffed hairstyles, look at shoes, look at their legs (!) and the sun shining on their hair and smiling faces. Compared to the bleak tragedy that is the modern-day Iranian woman's dresscode, that is paradise lost.

Go-Go Boot Brag [May. 16th, 2007|04:30 pm]
Just a small brag about the go-go boots I have for sale in my eBay store. I'm so happy that after a long dry spell, I'm finally go-go boot happy again. I've got them in white, purple, black and red. The catch is that they're literally all a size 6-6.5. No kidding! I found two more pairs this week (not pictured-but one pair has Bond-girl-type stilleto heels and the other is black velvet with lace-up ties) and those were size 6-6.5 as well. You'd think I had gotten them all from the same person, but nope. I guess it is just my luck to find shoes that almost fit me, but not quite.

Here are some pictures:Collapse )

Just a public service announcement about smoking!

Makes perfect sense, right?

In other news, this is what I want for my birthday, Christmas and Easter.

No bids yet, seriously. There is one bid on the flapper-print shirt, but that's it.
