Bohemian Rasphody

EXCUSE MY YELLOWER THAN USUAL SKIN (LOL) IT'S THE EDITING...haha
knit: ross
skirt: my mom
belt: my dad
sandals: UO
necklace: DIY

thank GOD that i have cultivated a love for lengthy skirts!
my mom has (as many of you are aware) BUNCHES AND BUNCHES of maxis from her younger, i-care-about-dressing days, and they keep me away from the mall and away from spending $$$.
I love this skirt because of the shape (almost mermaid... but not too constraining like my black F21 one.. which i don't think has gone up on the blog yet) and the little dot pattern on it.
i feel VERY oddly bohemian today--I don't think I've ever dressed in earthy colors (at least in as much as i'm wearing today... )
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
anyways, I just wanted to remind you all that you can still, and should, donate to Japan.
What saddens me is that once the news of Japan fades and the initial shock goes away, people start to lose their interest and care for the crises that have occurred in Japan--and are STILL going on. The fear of a nuclear meltdown is shrouding over the Japanese, but I know that they, as an immensely strong people, have the hope and courage to overcome this disaster. The MULTIPLE articles I read today in Time Magazine sincerely rang in my mind, as i flipped through the desolate and despairing or joyous reunion photos that filled the pages.
I have to admit that even I myself have pushed the thought aside due to what I believe is more important in my  OWN LIFE, but I was sucked back into realization multiple times this week. Earlier yesterday, one of my dad's closest friends called from Japan, and his voice was so optimistic and cheery. It's very humbling to see these people, who have encountered so much death and hardship, to still be like that. I can't imagine myself every going through it.
i encourage all of you to take some time to look at these photos from Time, and just sit back and contemplate on the valuable life you live.

I admire people who can wear long skirts in a beautiful way, like you do! I wouldn't feel comfortable wearing it,but on you, it looks just wonderful! And the knit is damn cool, but weren't you hot?
And the disaster which is destroying Japan really scares me and I feel even more sorry about it when watching these photos... it's so far-away that it seems like unreal! Unfortunately, it isn't... :/
