Vote for Me.


I'm running for a political seat in my town, and today I was out and about campaigning...

Please, Vote for Me, Marie Applegate Prasad.

NOT. 
Gawd, I'm such a dork!

But I will tell ya, I definitely felt like I was running for office in this get-up. 

The outfit seemed to command more respect: I got such great service everywhere I went and people kept wanting to talk to me all day. It was so odd, interesting, and let's not forget FUN.
I felt - dum da dee dum - powerful!
So much so, that I just happened to get quite a bit of business today, which is fan-freakin-tastic because I'm a proud hardworking business owner - super score!

So, in conclusion, my Betty Booties, if you want something, dress like you mean it.

Whoa, I just re-read all that, and  the last sentence feels reminiscent of the speech that Cher from Clueless gave about partying with the Hatians. Ha!

 





Sunglasses, F21
Necklaces, F21 & Madewell
Top, Mango
Skirt, Vintage from my mother
Shoes, Sam Edelman

you would command more respect from me in this outfit haha! just kidding, {i would respect a person in rags if they respected me} don't you hate that, but it is true that society does judge you based on your clothes. . . . i just love your outfit here, very cool vintage skirt from mom, cute shoes and your hair looks beautiful!!

New Visitor here- love this post, your writing style is so cute & fun. Dress like you mean it- those are some words to live by.

P.S. how funny was Cher pronouncing the word Haiti-an's, instead of Haitians. Clueless = Classic.
