Find What You Love & Let It Kill You



{Photos by Alyssa; wearing TNA bomber jacket, Sheinside pants, Alexander Wang booties, Vince Camuto wallet}

I've been MIA from the internet for a last few days as my world is currently on fire. Though I don't feel as awful as I did back in November where I just wanted to crawl into a hole and die. This time something tells me it will be okay. Maybe it's also because for the first time in a long, long time (I'm talking years) I feel like I'm in a normal and healthy relationship.

I came across this quote the other day. With all the Steubenville rape talk lately I thought I'd share:

 “Essentially, the idea of a “slut” is a myth told to women to keep them in their place. Just as Santa will not actually bring you coal on Christmas if you break a few of the house rules, you will not actually turn into an intrinsically tainted, unpalatable creature if you break one of society’s rules and have sex with one too many men. The word “slut” isn’t a criticism for having too much sex necessarily, but for being a woman: a real, living, breathing woman with quirks, foibles, normal sexual feelings, and personality; and failing to live up to the societal ideal for a woman: the passive, pliable, perpetually innocent, and sexually available Barbie doll.”

  4. i adore your outfit, literally every piece, the pants, the jacket, the beanie!!
    i hope you are feeling better, i know exactly what you mean, lately I feel like I need to crawl into a hole and die as well.. probably because i got dumped by text message QQ and then reading about steubenville made me even more depressed. sometimes the world can be such an ugly place. keep on bringing beauty, your blog is great!

  11. Barbie Dolls are sexually available? That explains her longevity. :)

    I hope things are getting better for you. As for your title, she is...and rather quickly. I've advised my friends to let her get away with it. I've had a good run.

  21. You look really cool :D so much love for those boots!
    I don't know about sluts.. there's a fine line which most women walk, and I think some girls just don't know when to stop putting their hands all over a guy or just needlessly flirting with him, especially when his girlfriend is present. I don't know. I could be wrong, but I'm glad you brought it up. Good food for thought!
