Old School Classy

Faith 21 by Forever21 Dress, Torrid fish net tights, Torrid wedge shoes, Forever21 quilted purse, necklace and flower headband

This is an outfit I put together for Halloween. Remember you don't always have to but a costume, you could always put together one yourself. I call this Old School Classy because I believe it looks very vintage inspired with the ever oh so classy pearls and gold chains. What do you think about my big flower headband? Very Alison in Wonderland inspired, huh!

Urban Outfitters Controversial T-Shirts

On Monday October 15, 2012 I was watching Anderson Cooper show called "Anderson Live". On the show Anderson and his guest co host Tasha Smith were talking about a controversy going on with Urban Outfitters T-shirts. Not all of the t-shirts just the alcohol ones!
(watch clip below for a better understanding)

My Views/opinion on the topic:
 I don't think this should be a controversy. Manly because its not targeting  Race, Sex, Gender or Age. I'm an open minded person and i think the people that have a problem with these shirts are not! (there over thinking the concept). When you go/shop at Urban Outfitter you should already no what your getting your self into. The key word is "URBAN" and urban style is a way of self expression 
(telling the world who you are though your clothes and style.)
Would you buy this shirt?
I would personally buy these shirts. My favorite one is "Vote For Vodka". Do I drink? Yes, some times i do. Are you of age to drink? Yes, I am (I'm 22). Wearing this shirt wouldn't make me want to drink more and Urban Outfitters hasn't promoted it, to do that.
How you raise your kids:
In the show they kept bringing up under age kids and how these shirts will promote under age drinking. Well it all come down to how your kids think. If you raised them right, they should be able to think for them selves. You cant hold there hands and fight there battles for ever.
So the conclusion to this topic is Urban Outfitters isn't your kids parents. They did not promote these shirt for under age kids. Nor did they say drinking is cool. so make sure you know the meaning and the history behind a company before you start picking on them.
Tell me what you think in the comments below or on twitter!

But for some strange reason it stopped and I don't understand why. So therefor I went on UGGs website and took a look around. Here are six pairs that I like and I think you will like too!
