you were born this way

Do you support LGBT rights/ individuality/ equality/ general peace and love?
If so, you should take a look at these websites that also happen to be on Twitter:

The Born This Way Foundation, started by Lady Gaga, advocates equality, bravery, and individualism. The full website gets launched in 2012, but you can check Lady Gaga's Twitter feed for more news about the organization. 

Perhaps one of the most well-known gay rights organizations, the NOH8 Campaign was started during the controversy of Proposition 8 (ban on gay marriage). Unfortunately, the bill was passed and marriage was banned for anyone in the LGBT community. However, the campaign continues to gain thousands of supporters, especially on the NOH8 Campaign Twitter profile

Another well-known LGBT campaign is the Human Rights Campaign. They advocate "equality across America," and create events to promote LGBT equality in the USA. HRC also advocates protection against hate crimes, including bullying. They too have a Twitter account. advocates HIV awareness and LGBT rights across the globe by reporting on the latest news. Their stories have been translated into 52 different languages, which is a significant resource for supporters around the world. They often update their Twitter account.

In the deaf community, Purple helps deaf and hard-of-hearing individuals by offering interpreter services and advocating civil rights. What they do for the deaf community is truly inspiring. Here is their Twitter account.

Who knew there were so many inspirational organizations that you can follow on Twitter?
If ya forgot, I am also on Twitter! See ya later :)

worst of the worst

Hello Sweetie! (Doctor Who reference... don't ask)
Remember that post about fabulous homecoming dresses? Well here are the worst ones I found, and yes, there are plenty.
And no, I'm not telling you where I found them, because I'm saving you from buying them.

I wonder which short, infamously-orange, Jersey resident she is trying to look like. Hmmmm....

Skirt = gold spray-painted trash bag 

This is one of the cheapest looking dresses I've ever seen. It looks like it's made of colored plastic wrap over blue tissue paper. 

Turquoise One Shoulder Dresses

This must be related to the one above. They're the cheap ugly blue fabric, one-shoulder mini-dress twins.

I love her creepy facial expression. The sleeve looks like it's lined with duck tape. 

Celeste-Black/Fuchsia Homecoming Dress

What is this monstrosity.

This isn't how you design a choker neckline dress. It's not actually supposed to choke someone. 

Oh dear gawd..

Black Strapless Cocktail Dresses

It's amazing how unflattering this dress is. Puckering cheap fabric along the middle of one's body is the worst way to show it off. 

Luminous Tie-Shoulder Dress

Tight, one-shoulder bib dress-- For more modest individuals

Super hyper colorful twins. They seem very happy. 

Super extreme shoulder pad = not always flattering with a super tight mini-dress

Wow that's bad. I'm still in shock someone would let their daughter/relative/friend/facebook friend/acquaintance wear this horrific-ness.

I hope you enjoyed that ugliness. See you next time sweetie! :)

best of the best

Homecoming that is.
So I decided I'm going to try and attend every single dance at my school this year. We'll see how that goes, but I'm sure I'll have fun at every single one.
So I started looking up dresses for homecoming (I think I may already have a dress that works, but I was bored and started looking up dresses).
Here are the best:

I seriously could not find the designer of this dress, which makes me so so sad. Not only is this frock adorable, it also works for all body types. Price Range: 120-130$

Fire Hardware Detailed Strapless Dress (Juniors)

Design by Fire Hardware
Do you love that tribal trend? If so, This dress will most likely appeal to you. Simple and subdued, yet sweet and casual! Price: 46$
Find it here:

Designer: Topshop
From the thin gold belt to the slight colourblocking, this garment screams subtle luxury (or Gucci Spring RTW 2011, whichever works.) Price: 55 euros (76$)
Find it here:

Design by Ruby Rox
Sophisticated, fun, and cute. Reminds me a lot of Audrey Hepburn and Zooey Deschanel. Price Range: 75-100$
Find it here: and

The Finalist Dress

Design by Modcloth
Gorgeous-ness. Seriously divine fabric. If you love 50s/60s style, you probably can't stop staring at this dress like I am right now. Works for every body type. Price: 70$
Find it here:

Design by Roberta
Totally adorable. The perfect strapless "tea party" dress that every girl searches endlessly for. Price Range: 50-70$
Find it here:

Design by Topshop
Adorable badassness. There's something so wonderful about a little black leather dress. Price: 50 euros (70$)
Find it here:

Lush Crossover Asymmetric Hem Dress (Juniors)

Design by Lush
Really really... "designer-y." Simple, but looks somewhat expensive. Interesting asymmetrical hemline. Note: Probably won't work with all body types. Price: 48$
Find it here:

Design by Modcloth
Perfect for Boho Babes. Has that perfect "beachy" feeling to it, and is also super elegant. Price: 85$
Find it here:

Design by Topshop
Really unique. The shape is so simple, but the beaded fringe definitely add some fun. Price: 175 euros (243$)
Find it here:

I seriously could go on and on and on but I have to go eat something. Bye :)
Oh and don't worry, the worst are yet to come.
