2 Things + Neil Armstrong


2 Things:
1. If you check this blog regularly you might be a little confused about my hair length. "Didn't she just chop off all her hair last week?" Yes I did. But I have a backlog of photos and posts from pre-haircut times. So if you see long hair, it's not a weave or a wig, it's just a blog time-machine. Back to the future! Also, thank you so much for your wonderful words of encouragement about the hair cut. You guys are the sweetest.
2. This post is yet another installation of my mission to incorporate more Pakistani and Indian clothing into my daily routine. And this year, with printed pants being such a big trend, I figured I might as well use my printed Indian pants to bring this trend to life. And my submission for the InFB challenge.



Black Tunic: Alfred Sung for Zellers || Shalwaar Pants: Pakistan || Kenneth Cole Shoes: thrifted || Snake Necklace: Gift from cousin Sabrina || Silver Bracelets: from Mom and Suzy Shier || Earrings: Either from Turkey or Greece






In the news: I found myself surprisingly moved and saddened by the death of Neil Armstrong, the first man to walk on the moon. For as long as I've been alive that small step yet giant leap has been a part of my consciousness.  I imagine it's been the same for you. And while his steps on our distant little brother the moon seem like ancient history, one has to give credit where credit is due. He and the team he led, defied gravity, flew out of our planet bravely towards the unknown, at a very high risk of dying, to make one of humanity's dreams come true. Science. Human achievement. Discovery. Exploration. Excellence. And despite all that - Humility. He was a moment of greatness. I'd like to imagine Neil's soul is now swirling around in the universe, enjoying the very solar system he helped make more tangible for us. Rest in peace Neil. 

I know I just said it above, but I'm feeling the love, and I want to thank you all again for your sweet words about the hair cut. Eventually I'll work my way through these long haired pictures and it will be shorty city soon enough.
Let us all feel the love this week.

  1. What a great pair of pants, the colors are beautiful. And yes Neil Armstrong had 'the Right stuff', he should have lived another 7 years to celebrate the 50th anniversary of such almost impossible achievement.
