R.I.P., Mr. de la Renta. #regram @oscarprgirl

I have loved Oscar de la Renta’s work for years - so gorgeous and classy, but also cutting edge and a bit daring.  He will be missed.

I don’t think the worst thing is hearing someone doesn’t love you.  Or you telling someone you don’t love them.

I think the worst thing is finally breaking down and telling someone who loves you that you don’t love yourself.

Because that’s a vulnerability most of us fiercely protect until we die because it’s an admission of our own self-doubt and lack of confidence.

We might admit it to ourselves.  Silently.  Mentally.  In the dark of the night and in the quiet hidden recesses of our minds.  But never out loud and especially not to another person. 

It’s our personal vocalisation that our world is crumbling and we for whatever reason cannot stop it from doing so.

'This… stuff'? Oh. Okay. I see. You think this has nothing to do with you. You go to your closet and you select… I don't know… that lumpy blue sweater, for instance because you're trying to tell the world that you take yourself too seriously to care about what you put on your back. But what you don't know is that that sweater is not just blue, it's not turquoise. It's not lapis. It's actually cerulean. And you're also blithely unaware of the fact that in 2002, Oscar de la Renta did a collection of cerulean gowns. And then I think it was Yves Saint Laurent… wasn't it who showed cerulean military jackets? I think we need a jacket here. And then cerulean quickly showed up in the collections of eight different designers. And then it, uh, filtered down through the department stores and then trickled on down into some tragic Casual Corner where you, no doubt, fished it out of some clearance bin.

I love this monologue.  Partially because Meryl Streep delivers it beautifully. But also because this is so literally how the fashion industry works - the reason things like moto jackets are in style right now?  Because sure, a designer created them, but mostly because magazines and people like Miranda Priestly chose to make them the thing for that year.  Basically giving them life.  

Something I think people forget about fashion - it affects all of us whether we’re choosing what is popular or choosing what to wear.

This film is entirely win for me.  I love fashion.  I’m not overly fashionable most of the time, but I love looking at it and garnering inspiration for my own style.  I get a monthly Vogue.  I look at clothing sites online practically daily - both high end and every day consumer.

A burrito! Pusheen and I are soulmates.

And all I can do
Is hope that the pain will fade.

And all I can do
Is cry alone at night.

And all I can do
Is think of you.

And all I can do
Is wonder what if?

And all I can do
Is try to survive and thrive.

And all I can do
Is learn to let you go.

There comes a time when you have to decide if it’s worth your time and effort to stay.  But walking away is hard - you built a friendship, a relationship, and a love only to throw it away.

I can’t bring myself to walk away.  Yet I hear the city calling my name and beckoning me to come back again.  To leave behind everything here and throw myself into the mercy of the wind and the noise and the raging madness of the sprawling metropolis.

And I wonder, what if I leave and find someone else there?  What if I miss out on someone because I chose to stay?

Do I silence the calls of the city and a life I always dream of that echo in my heart?

And for the first time in a long time I am afraid of regret and afraid of the future.

Why do I have to be poor?

I feel like very few, or at least not many of the people of tumblr are aware of what is going on in my home country Hong Kong right now.

You guys gave alot of coverage and support when Scotland was voting for its independance, so I’m hoping you’ll all support the people of Hong Kong as well.

Right now, many of us are in a mass demonstration of pro-democracy against China. But wait a sec, isn’t Hong Kong China? This is a big misconception amongst foreigners, but please, we are far from being similar to China at all.

A little history class: Hong Kong used to be colonized by the British, and before you white-knights begin going all “them damn white racist ppl taking over another asian country” please don’t. We are thankful Britain took us under its wing and instilled in us values that I feel made us what we are today; that is, a democratic people with respect for free speech, amongst many things.

On the other hand, China is communist, with government controlled media and news. Google, instagram, facebook and many tv shows are blocked in China. It really is just a few steps from North Korea imo.

So what’s the problem here? Britain unfortunately had to hand back Hong Kong to China, but one of the requirements is that Hong Kong be allowed to operate as ‘one country two systems’, meaning Hong Kong should be able to have its own democratic government. But China has broken its promise. A while back, China tried to put a mandatory ‘national education’ curriculum in all our primary schools. We all know what that is; a communist brainwashing regime. And now, they have announced that in 2017 Hong Kong will be able to vote for its president; BUT only from 3 candidates hand picked by its PRO-BEIJING legislation.

As you can see, China is trying to takeover completely and turn us into another communist state.

Of course, we have taken to the streets. In a mirror if the Tiananmen protests, students have also stepped up to fight for our rights and our future, albeit in a peaceful protest of course. But the police force who have always been a friend of the people, are now responding with force, something that had never been done before in Hong Kong.

First it was pepperspray, then teargas. Then, armed forces came in qith rubber bullets. They warn they will come out with live ammunition soon if we do not get off the streets but the people continue to sit tight, disrupting businesses China so strive to takeover and make use of. It’s been 2 days now, but the people plan to continue at least till 1st October or even beyond. The significance is that October 1st is China’s National day, not ours, Hong Kong has not been granted it’s own National day.

Please spread the news. This is a country we’re talking about. These are my people.

You can join this event to wear yellow in support of my people on October 1st.

You can also read a more detailed explanation of what’s going down here and watch a live feed here.

Important.
