yes we can!

So I'm a sucker for fashion for causes, and as I've been saying the last few posts, my current cause is Voting. I was looking for some Barack Obama buttons on his web store, and discovered that a whole slew of designers had created some pretty awesome things to encourage people to VOTE [and to vote for change!] and I just had to share them :) First off, I loooove the tote bags--tote bags and handbags are one of my weaknesses, and there is a plethora of them on the web store. Second, I love that a lot of my favorite designers not only support voting, but aren't afraid to publicly endorse a candidate in a society that can be less than supportive of sharing opinions, yet use "free speech" as an excuse every chance they get, so kudos to that. I just wish I could more of these fantastic garments and accessories. I may just be sticking with a button and a sticker or two...

L-R: Tracy Reese, Vera Wang, Zac Posen

L-R: Diane Von Furstenberg, Marc Jacobs, Narcisco Rodriguez

L-R: Proenza Schouler bracelet, Rag & Bone Tote

go shorty...'s my birthday!!! :D On October 8th, I'm turning 22 [ and I know I'm not old at all, but I feel so old! ] and I thought I'd share a few other fabulous people born on this wonderful day, as well as a few of my birthday favs/wishes/gifts :) 
The pic to the left is from this summer in central friend was visiting and we were getting ready to leave the park when John Driscoll, the soap opera star who I've been "in love" with since I first saw him on Guiding Light, entered the long story short, I dragged my friend back in to the park, and asked him for a picture, which he happily obliged to and chatted with us for a few minutes :) It was shaping up to be the best day of my life...til my flip flop broke and I had to walk out of the park and a few city blocks with one shoe on...which was disgusting, by the way. I just felt like this was an appropriate pic to put up b/c my b-day is an exciting event, and this day was pretty exciting too!!!  [also, b/c I like to brag about this. Believe me. it was a pretty big deal...]
Anyway, I'm going to celebrate my b-day by going to class, a fundraiser for SADA, and a night filled with homework...and maybe a new tattoo?...and then a trip to the U.P. for the weekend...nothing to exciting, but thats ok. I like it quiet :) 

Here are some "celebs" who share my birfday. Happy Birthday to them, and anyone else celebrating today!!! I think I'm in pretty good company...

November 4th is rapidly approaching, and that means voter registration deadlines are coming up even quicker. So if you haven't done so, register to VOTE. You can do it by clicking on the widget to the left, or going to . It takes a few minutes, and then you'll be all set to help make some changes in this country!

Here's a bit more motivation, watch it, pass it on, and VOTE.
