I like to call this american chic
THERE ARE TWO EXTREMELY POLITICAL TOPICS THAT TAKE MY CONCERN
-HUMAN RIGHTS (GAY/RACIAL/RELIGOUS)
SOMETHING I AM PASSIONATE ABOUT
AND TAKE PROTEST ACTIONS IN
-AND THE ACTIONS BEING ON TAKEN
BY OUR AMERICAN GOVERMENT
ON OTHER COUNTRIES WHO HAVE NO INVOLVEMENT
IN THE WAR LOCATED IN AFGHANISTAN.
GOVERMENTS IN OTHER THIRD WORLD COUNTRIES
BUSTING DOWN DOORS AND SMASHING THROUGH WINDOWS
OF HOMES KILLING FAMILIES.
MURDERED BECAUSE THEY THINK THEY ARE EXTREMISTS
THESE ISSUES AS WELL AS SEVERAL OTHERS
NEED TO BE FOCUSED ON/
OUR GENERATION NEEDS TO STOP CONCERNING OF JERSEY SHORE
AND FOCUS MORE ON THE ISSUES INVOLVING EVERYONE AS A SOCIETY.
BEING POLITICAL AND BEING AWARE
ARE TWO VERY DIFFERENT THINGS
JUST KNOWING WHAT LITTLE YOU CAN DO
IN ORDER TO MAKE A MUCH LARGER DIFFERENCE
DOES MAKE CHANGE!!!!!!
I CAN GUARANTEE PEOPLE I KNOW
DONT EVEN KNOW MOST OF THE ISSUES GOING ON
WITH DONT ASK DONT TELL, OR THE SUICIDE OF COLLEGE STUDENT TYLER CLEMENTI
WE CAN USE FASHION/ART TO PROTEST,
TO ENGAGE, TO LIBERATE, TO EDUCATE AND TO FINALLY
UNITE OUR GENERATION, OUR PAST GENERATIONS AND OUR FUTURE GENERATIONS
IN THE ISSUES TODAY, THAT WILL ONLY HURT OUR TOMORROW.
THINGS ARE BETTER, BUT THAT DOESNT MEAN WE DROP AND LET GO
WE KEEP AT IT, ITS THE PLACE WE LIVE, ITS OUR HOME
ITS NO ONES JOB BUT OUR OWN TO WORK ON WHAT WE CREATE
THANK YOU ALWAYS FOR YOUR SUPPORT

Although Ive had this blog over a year, I haven't really said anything about myself.
I am Chicago native.
I look more ITALIAN then any of my other cultures.
ART IS MY LIFE.
I find my clothing at the bottom of sale bins and american apparel shelves.
I drink Americanos and think Angie Jolie is smokin'
Striped oversized sweatshirt and or pullovers
orange knit scarves
Tilda Swinton Art films
brown leather bowling shoes
Police man caps
Cheap internet graphics
Fashion is my life.
From the stitches to the britches, I am obsessed with every aspect of the fashion industry.
Although, I don't dress like something in Vogue or picture perfect magazine
I know good fashion when I see it!
Fashion design, styling, fashion journalism, fashion blogging, fashion designers
Its just a world Ive always longed to be apart of.
My views on style are "fashion freedom"
Wear what makes YOU feel stylish and not what the standards say is.
The spontanity and originality is what sparks fashion.
I am extremely versatile. I dress to the mood I am feeling, some days I feel like a street kid from LA and the next I feel like a blazer and oversized bag.
When my future collections debut, I want my consumers to feel like theyre at home
in their comfort zone.
Because Ive never been on a thinking level of everyone else, I have always felt like a freak and that no one would ever understand my lifestyle.
And for people who think loving fashion is shallow or shady
thats really okay, but please take your smoke cloud of non-sense and go away
its blocking my versace.
