WEAR RED FOR JAPAN




crop top: my mom
maxi skirt: my mom
belt: my dad
sandals: UO
bag: my mom

so as you can see... there's a ridiculous amount of red in this outfit.. but i feel like the brightness is toned down in the skirt so i don't look like a walking stop sign. i was pretty unaware of the significance of the red until my friend nicolette pointed out this morning that i was wearing red for japan (i guess it was a semi-conscious almost unintentional act).. but it's a small thing that we can do to raise awareness... i feel like i'm not seeing enough current events things (Libya and the middle east, the Japanese earthquakes and tsunamis) on blogs these days, so i wanted to change things up by talking a bit about it in the post below.
well, thank you all for visiting and reading, welcome to the new followers and readers

much love, and safety to you all

i love the outfit and i personally dont care if its too bright or not, i love all red! and thats great you're trying to raise more awareness, i think sometimes we (myself included) get too caught up in material things and take for granted what we have and often forget about the troubles that others face on a much grander scale...if we all just put in a little more effort on a daily basis it would make a bigger impact :)

This outfit is so beautiful! Your mom has the most amazing wardrobe :)
& Thank you so much for all your posts concerning Japan, it means a lot. I'm in Tokyo right now and my situation is far, far better than what people in Northern Japan are going through, but I can't help but worry :( Please continue to keep Japan in your thoughts!
