Pink Cowboy Hat

I'm wearing a really cute bikini that I purchased in the Los Angeles Fashion District, and my pink cowboy hat is from the 99 Cent Only Store.  I have found several cute bikinis while shopping in the fashion district, and the price is usually around two dollars for the set! The prices in the fashion district can be pretty amazing.  I like to go there once a month to see what's new.  I usually leave with several full bags of new clothes that I have no space for.

Do you love shopping in your local fashion district?

Red and White Checkered Skirt

Here I am at the Antelope Valley's largest gift shop, Charlie Brown Farm's in Littlerock, California   Going to Charlie Brown's has become a bit of a holiday tradition now.  This is always such a fun place to shop.  I decided to wear something a little country, and patriotic since this was the day before Independence Day.  My plaid top is something my husband picked out for me.  I thought it was an interesting mix with my full, old-fashioned skirt by Malco Modes.  The red earrings I am wearing are a gift from my grandmother.

How did you speed you're weekend?

Angel Wings

 Happy Independence Day, America!

After having the police called on me and my husband for taking an outfit-of-the-day photo on our lawn, I decided to to pose in a patriotic bikini to show my love of actual liberty.
If it was a neighbor that called the police when I was wearing a maxi dress, I thought they may appreciate the bikini even more. I am wearing angel wings my mother bought me, and a star necklace I put together myself.

Sequin Mini Dress

I really like this outfit! The dress was 99 cents at A New Day thrift store in Huntington Beach, so if you're in the area, be sure to stop by and check them out.  I can't believe how cute and fun this outfit was, and for such little money.  It was cool wearing sequins "just because".
The beautiful necklace was just $5 at Walmart, and my cute purse was just a few dollars at a Goodwill store.  I put this look together because I am in the Independence day spirit, and wanted to wear more red, white, and blue.  It's a fun tradition.

Blue and Pink Maxi Dress...with a side of injustice

My husband, who is over 20 years older than me was taking this outfit-of-the-day photo by this plant in our front yard.  We came inside and I edited the photos and my husband and I were sitting on our couch.  I was reading a magazine, he was playing a video game on a smart phone.  The doorbell rang twice, then there was a loud knock.  I looked outside to see there was a police car parked in front of our house.  My husband answered the door and the officer said there was a call about a 16 year old being photographed under duress.  I was asked to show ID, I asked if I had to and was told no, but I was still asked my age, and name.  This is not the first time an incident has happened that is similar to this.  I feel violated, and abused.  This complaint was ridiculous and unfounded and the police should never have violated the sanctity of our home to check on such a call.  I feel that my husband and I are treated unfairly because of our age differences; I KNOW we are.  If you are not safe from police questioning and harassment in your OWN home, then where are you ever safe to live in peace?  How is it that people that make these calls are not jailed for false reporting? I am a fashion blogger, I take photos nearly every day, sometimes on my own property.  I have NEVER had another problem like this when being photographed on public property, so it's even crazier that when the police are called it would be while my husband and I were on our own front lawn.  Now my husband says he doesn't want to photograph me in public anymore, or on our own front lawn.  He says he doesn't want to hold my hand in public from fear of being accused of being a child molester, kidnapper, etc.  Just why is it worthy of a 911 call if I WERE 16?  A man is not allowed to photograph a 16 year old in an outfit like I am wearing?  What if he was my father?  My paid professional photographer? What were we doing that someone felt the need to call 911 over?  The responding officer did not even apologize for wasting our time. I can only assume the person that called the police did so out of malice, or they are so stupid they have no business driving down the street. If you really believe in justice and equality and peace for all, please SHARE this story.
