Everybody good?! Stressed out from last week?! Take a moment and breathe, you survived election week. It wouldn’t be 2020 if it wasn’t strange. I’m personally grateful there weren’t any riots in the streets, like a lot of people thought. Notwithstanding a few ballots that still need to be tallied it seems the United States has chosen a new person for the office of the Executive. Let me put a disclaimer on this thing right now, this isn’t a showing of support for any particular party or any candidate. It’s simply the musings of fashionista, for what that’s worth.
Jill Biden donned the facemask below, with the words BREATHE POSITIVITY sown into it, during her husband’s acceptance speech. I thought how cool is this, a message I can relate to. A simple, clear, colorful and timely message during very uncertain times for so many. As I struggle with how much content to put out about fashion, style or beauty, let’s face it we’re in perilous times where people can’t make their mortgages or buy food, none of those things are really all that important in the grand scheme of things. But it’s little fashion moments like this that remind me how important breathing life, light, and positivity into the cypher really is. If there was ever a time for us to breathe a bit of positivity in the world, it’s right now.
Can we talk about Kamala Harris for a second?!
She has reignited the prissy-bow blouse (I’ve always been a fan) and paired it with an all white suite (by Carolina Herrera) during her acceptance speech; a nod to the suffragette movement. I did beam with pride as I watched her standing up there. Mostly because she represents so many women I know and love; intelligent, ambitious, graceful, hard-working and fabulous pant-suit wearing miracle workers. While my mind initially gravitated to what she was wearing, because I’m here for the fashion, I was more impressed with what she had to say, what Jill Biden said without saying, we all need to breathe more positivity into this world, be the change we want to see. Now that may look different for everyone but it’s most certainly something that’s desperately needed.
That’s all I got for this one folks.
