Each top is released in five colors, Pink, Teal, Grey, purple, and White (tees) Black(Halter). The Denim Skirt has a total of four colors: Asphalt, Dirty, Faded and Inky. The Denim skirt has three different options for accessorizing as a Belt, Belt With Skirt Prim, or skirt prim (shown above).  I love that 5th and Oxford has released these outfits with variety in mind. Multiple prim options, the ability to change between layers; means these items are great if you like to mix n match for a unique look.  My personal Favorite out of the set is the Rebel Halter.

Uprising

**As a Hispanic woman this post is important to me, not only because Dolores Huerta is a strong Hispanic role model; but because the women in my family have worked in fields during difficult economical times. As a child my grandmother would tell me stories about working under the hot Texas sun, the conditions were not the best and often she was exposed to chemicals that were more than likely harmful to her health. I feel a sense of pride that the women in my family were strong figures that were willing to sacrifice, work hard and provide for their children.

 Dolores Huerta :"Si se puede" (Yes, it can be done)

Co-founder of the United Farm Workers of America and Civil rights leader for Hispanic women. Recipient of the, Ellenor Roosevelt Human Rights Award. Dolores has received numerous awards and even has schools named in her honor.

Dolores has lead strikes and successfully negotiated a contract between the UFWOC and Schenley Wine Company. This was the first instance in which farm workers were able to successfully bargain with a large argicuartiual corporation. Dolores realized the connection between labor rights and human rights and has fought to improve these conditions. She was a lobbyist for the 1960 bill which allowed individuals to take driving tests in their native language. In her "non-violent protests", Dolores has been arrested and even assaulted by police forces. After an incident in 1998, in which Dolores was severely beaten and injured, the San Francisco Police Department changed it's policies when dealing with crowd control.

Dolores is still actively supporting labor and civil rights causes, she travels to universities where she shares her experiences with students inspiring others to peruse equality and social justice. 


"Among poor people, there's not any question about women being strong-even stronger than men- they work in the fields right along with the men. When your survival is at stake, you don't have these questions about yourself like middle-class women do." - Dolores Huerta

They will not force us,
They will stop degrading us,
They will not control us,
And we will be victorious!-Muse

Her Diamonds


 Glitterati has released "The Diamond Room, the ultimate spot for your Jewelry and sparkly photos. "The Diamond Room" has 15 poses, ranging from cute to sexy; and it's only 71 prims which is perfect when rezzing on small plots of land. I found the menu to be very easy to navigate, with just one click and the pose menu appears and allows for a quick and easy change.

 Curio had a special holiday treat for group members, a new skin from the holiday line "Elf". Gala pulled out all the stops for this skin. Dimples, full luscious lips and a tiny button nose all perfectly compliment one another. I really enjoy the tummy area, because of the two little moles on the left side that bring a little character to this skin. I also like the area around the belly button it has a "toned, but still soft" feel. The eyes are also a key feature of the skin I enjoy. mainly due to the little highlights and texture around the tear duct. There is also a shimmery eyeshadow that is remisent of fairy dust.

And finally the Lingerie, I wanted something light and sheer that would sparkly but also provide some coverage. Lingerie Boutique was able to answer the call with "Sexy Floral Lingerie in Nearly Nude".

Oh what the hell she says
I just can't win for losing
And she lays back down
Man there's so many times
I don't know what I'm doin
Like I don't know now


By the light of the moon
She rubs her eyes
Says it's funny how the night
Can make you blind
I can just imagine
And I don't know what I'm supposed to do
But if she feels bad then i do too
So I let her be- Rob Thomas

Such Great Heights

"Mishaps in Fashion", is now showcasing "Iconic women in History". "Iconic Women in History" is going to be a series of posts that will highlight The Strong, The Independent, The Visionary woman that have changed or challenged our society. These women are true role models. I only hope my tiny posts will serve them justice in some way. Now Let's get on to Today's post.............


Amelia Earheart the "Lady of the Air"
 The first woman to win the Distinguished Flying cross. The first Woman to fly solo across the Atlantic. She inspired women to follow their dreams and pursue careers in the aviation field. She worked to support her desire to fly and paid for her aviation lessons by holding jobs such as a photographer, truck driver, and stenographer. 

Perhaps the most well known and most talked about fact regarding Amelia is the mystery surrounding her disappearance on her last flight. Although, there are many theories as to what occurred on her last flight the official theory is that due to a lack of gas or technical malfunction her plane went down somewhere in the pacific. Amelia, was a true visionary and a leader in the field of aviation for women. She didn't allow her gender to become an obstacle and will always be respected and revered for following her dreams.

 "Please know that I am aware of the hazards. I want to do it because I want to do it. Women must try to do things as men have tried. When they fail, their failure must be a challenge to others." A. Earheart

Heights, 'come down now,' they'll say

An Ancient Egyptian Love Poem

O my beautiful one,
I wish I were part of your affairs, like a wife.
With your hand in mine your love would be returned.
I implore my heart:
"If my true love stays away tonight,
I shall be like someone already in the grave."
Are you not my health and my life?
How joyful is your good health
for the heart that seeks you!

throughout time their love still grew strong.....

Playground Love


I've gone hunt crazy and found some new stores along the way. Today's outfit tries to embrace the playful snow look. (Mainly I just wanted an excuse to break away from the pants and slip into on a short skirt.) Pink the ultimate "girl romantic" color is a highlight in today's post. The Pink sweater is from Modd.G and is a instant hit. I really enjoy the rounded collar and shape of the sleeve from this sweater. The Skirt is a from a store I consider to be a staple in my SL wardrobe SC, an oldie but goodie. Feeling a little girlie I paired some super cute over the knee socks and left a bit of thigh showing. These striped socks from Narwhal provide enough coverage for your gams and allow them to get just a bit of attention.  Finally I paired the entire ensemble with Duh! Boots. They look like they provide the maximum amount of warmth and comfort perfect for running jumping and getting into snow fights.

Stop The Rock


With the holiday season in full swing it's time to look at party dresses for those little soirees that will quickly be approaching. StoRin has released this perfect little number "Flowey".  The Asymmetric design totally screams tease by providing a glipse of your back and shoulder blade. The short mini dress is totally cute perfect for showing off your gamms when wearing those uber high heels. Another great thing about this dress is the multiple layer options available, perfect for mixing and matching with other items in your inventory. This dress would fall into the category of "A night out on the town" because of the accessibility to dress it up or down. The minutue I put "Flowey" on I wanted to dance and shake my booty.

I paired the outfit with the new hair from lamb "Ghost". Just so there is no false representation Ghost does not come with the bangs, but since I have a "rather large forehead" I added bangs from "Lovetones" and morphed this hairstyle to suit my personal style a little better.


The Look- Rocker Chic
Hair-LAMB- Ghost/ Lovetones (bangs)
Skin-TD- Dinah in Fall
Dress-::StoRin::- Flowey
Stockings-!X2-Sheer fishnet
Necklace-DECO-Black Pearl Double Strand
Shoes-Rebel Hope- Skullique (Halloween hunt item from 2008)

Stop the rock, can't stop the rock
You can's stop the rock, can't stop the rock.....

Shake that paranoia, can't stop the rock!
Come move me move me
Dancing like Madonna, into the groovy

Falling for The First Time....

Today I attempted to go Ice skating, but failed miserably. Who knew I was such a klutz? At least I looked cute while my booty was sliding across the ice, after all I was wearing my Artilleri, TD, CS,TRUTH, Sh*t Happens and **Mis**

It started off great, I was skating like a pro moving at lighting speed performing all sorts of tricks. too bad I saw something shiny.. I quickly became distracted............

I slipped on a twig, lost my balance and landed face first onto the ice. the aftermath a busted nose and finger. Can you say OUCH?

but fear not, as Chumbuwamba would say, " I get knocked down, but I get up again"... I quickly dusted off the ice from my skirt looked around to make sure no one saw and held my head up high as I attempted a second time to skate. I wasn't going to let anything stop me, after all I've left all that baggage in the past.


The Look- Ice Skate Princess
Hair-Truth- Gillian
Skin-TD- Dinah in Fall
Earmuffs- Artilleri- Knit earmuffs
Scarf-CS-Linen stole muffler
Bandaid- RC- Bandaid for finger Ouchies
Shirt-Sh*t Happens-Pink Bunny Thermal
Skirt-**MIS**Sport Tennis Skirt
Socks-**MIS**-Ultimate Sock Collection
(sorry about no LM today, I'm sleepy)



I'm so cool, too bad I'm a loser
I'm so smart, too bad I can't get anything figured out
I'm so brave, too bad I'm a baby
I'm so fly, that's probably why it
Feels just like I'm falling for the first time............


Anyone perfect must be lying, anything easy has its cost
Anyone plain can be lovely, anyone loved can be lost
What if I lost my direction? What if I lost sense of time?
What if I nursed this infection? Maybe the worst is behind
It feels just like I'm falling for the first time
It feels just like I'm falling for the first time- BNL
