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.

  1. I love the dress, it shows off your tattoos very nicely. Also those shoes make me want to go to Payless and find my own pair! I love wedges and those look just the right height. Sounds like a really great event, I've actually never heard of him but I'll have to look into it.

  7. I love how black on white looks (as opposed to white on black) so naturally I love this dress haha. The neckline is so cute and you look adorable :) What a great cause to be supporting as well.

  8. Not sure how it is in real life, but here the collar gives a decidedly fun 60s vibe. You are adorable in polka dots. Also, thank you for linking to that!

  10. I really like the unique collar on this dress and the polka dots are always fantastic in my book. I really love your hat ring too. My sister bought me one like that but it's gigantic so I hardly ever wear it! I may need to break it out...

    (Also, I'm just moving back home about an hour from school until I get my life together and turn into a grown up somehow. I still have a month to get my crap out of my apartment, thankfully. Then it's finding a full time job somewhere and saving money!)

  15. I've been reading Dan Savage columns for years. And I listened to his podcast for awhile too. He's so hilarious with some of his answers.

    I saw him at Pitt a few years ago when he was first promoting the It Gets Better Project. It was so surreal to see him in person, haha. Glad you got to see him!
