OOTD; color show

The day these photos were taken it was about 98 degrees or something. Can you tell? Looking at them I can feel the heat oozing out. Anyways, this dress is another piece from Sammy Dress and I've got to say, it's stunning. Well, besides the fussy collar. I am not one for fussy clothes, however, the quality from Sammy Dress has truly blown me away. This dress is perfect for the extreme heat as it's light weight and breezy. In the thick humid summer air, this is a must.

Saturday afternoon, some friends and I headed to Cleveland to see Dan Savage, author, writer, columnist, creator of Savage Love + It Get's Better Project. The event was mostly about the latter project which is all about raising awareness for LGBT Youth to prevent suicide. The videos span from every day people to President Obama. It's a powerful movement that's changing the lives of so many kids. Savage's speech was empowering on so many levels. There wasn't a single dry eye in the place. I could feel the energy, sadness, and community that this movement is bringing. It's a huge issue that needs discussed. I highly suggest watching the videos and sharing the project with anyone that could benefit from it. Also read Savage Love because it's a hilarious "love" column.

My point? Dan Savage is rad.
