Strong and Awesome

"Moto Hound"--Wednesday, 1/11/17

This outfit from November 2015...


was transformed into this blue + black + subtle pattern mixing ensemble.

Cobalt blue pullover sweater (Macy's), $6.67/wear
Black space dye skirt (Old Navy), $1.25/wear
Black moto vest (JCP), $2.43/wear
Black and white houndstooth scarf (Target), $1.90/wear
Black tights
Leopard smoking slippers by Clarks, $1.79/wear

Outfit total: $14.04/wear

A strange thing--I got a scarf from Robert's mom for Christmas that looks identical to the scarf in the inspiration photo (though mine was from Gap and hers was from Target).  But mine is voluminous enough that it makes a better wear-outside-with-a-coat scarf than a wear-in-your-office scarf, in my view.

And for a fun Reverse Inspiration photo featuring a column of black with blue "arms", an East India Black Duck shows off the blue in his wing at the state fair.

In other news...What the hell kind of world is it that someone as amazing looking as Serena Williams regularly takes crap from people (men) about her appearance?  She's one of the greatest athletes of all time in part because she is strong as fuck and, contrary to basically every SF movie/TV show you've ever seen, physically powerful women look, you know, muscular. Grrr.

We had a user training today, which meant I got to listen to people talk about how awesome my dashboards are.  Not a bad way to get through a 3 hour meeting.

I was amazed that some guy accused Serena of looking like a man! J K Rowling put him in his place by saying her husband looks like her in a dress and called the troller an idiot. Have you seen photos of Serena in a dress? Uh, definitely not a man!!

Yeah, that was among the more bizarre comments I've seen lately.

A black woman who is powerful and successful. People hate that. (A lot of people.)

Yep. The crap Michelle Obama gets--despite being fairly conventional in terms of female gender roles--is mind-boggling.
