I have been caught up in a lot of work, but now I´m back with some pictures from this past weekend.
I went to a demo that had the message that we in Denmark are able to take care of the 200 or more refugees from Afghanistan that the government are about to deport. It is so inhuman & a violation against the UN human rights. These people are in danger & did not arrive here by airplane og a nice cruise. God knows what these people have been through to get to Scandinavia…
I also went to my favorite cupcake place ( I´m not really into cupcakes, but these are something special) Serenity Cupcakes. The owner is such a sweetheart & the place is so cute. There are nice china & always fresh fashion magazines.
I was wearing my new white Nike Airmax & a Zara skirt I bought last summer.
My hair is growing rapidly & I can now have a ponytail. Here I´m wearing MAC morange lipstick.
Saturday night I went to a blockparty in a cool street in my old hood. As I walked home I saw this tree that had these amazing big flower buds. Today I saw they are in full bloom. Beautiful!!!
We kind of know-don´t we? All of the stuff that have pricetags that are too good to be true are probably sewn by a kid or an adult that has to live on the factory for 50 cent & a bowl of rice a day. But we are not sure so we close our eyes, because we like to buy the nice stuff they made. Some have argument like:” Well it´s a way to keep people alive. If we didnt buy the stuff-they would have no bowl of rice.” But couldn´t we just pay what it costs to run the industry without abusing people, someone else would say. And the answer would be:” But then the production might move back to the West & then the fx Chinese workers have nothing at all.” It´s like choosing between the devil & the deep blue sea. I do think though that when Zara are outsourcing their work-they should make sure that no one suffers. If that means that the consumer has to pay a little more-then so be it. I´m pretty sure that we will buy it anyway & feel better about it too.
Such nice stuff-what end in this ethical dilemma do you choose? To buy or to pass?
Courtney Love looks beat up & like she came straight out of a casket ; ), but in a great Saint Laurent dress.
Marilyn Manson looks so interesting. I like his look-no brows, eyeliner, lipstick, great hair & a nice leather jacket.
I can´t help liking that Saint Laurent choose controversial personalities. I´m no near a fan of any of them, but I think they are interesting & I think there is room for people with edge-okay a lot of edge. In my opinion everything shouldn´t always be so pretty & perfect since the world is far from perfect. The campaign is not very YSL like though…
