Stark + link love

Quick primary-color themed outfit post for today!
I love the clean lines and simple color palate of this outfit, but the other photos show me as having the most unfortunate limp and lifeless helmet hair! This was the best of the bunch, so up it goes twice. Wearing: Forever 21 blouse and brogues, black vest from Magarbo and red trousers from Market Market's Fashion Market.

(Gossipy tip: everyone's abuzz about that new SM Aura opening at Bonifacio Global City -- with Sarah Jessica Parker gracing the event, kabog!, and word on the street is that Market Market will be "upgrading" to compete with its saucey-sosi neighbor. I hope not, because if the tiangges go, where will I get my affordable fashion fix?!)

Links to love
Anyway, it's performance evaluation time at the office so I'm crazy busy; but it doesn't help that I'm so distracted with some excellent web material. To wit:
  • Hysterical Literature - (Slightly NSFW) Artist Clayton Cubbit's video project has women reading aloud from their favorite books while being, erm, distracted under the table. I've been, uh, pimping this link to all my friends since last Friday because I think it makes a great statement about female sexuality and pleasure, the love of literature, the disconnect of mind and body, and it's just really fun to watch!
  • $40,000-a-night escorts: secrets of the Cannes call girls (via The Hollywood Reporter) - Dude, that article title is all you need to know. Who doesn't love a salacious Hollywood tale?!
  • And now, a break from all that sex talk: I just love, love, love the idea behind Jamie Moore's Not Just a Girl blog post, where for her 5-year-old daughter's birthday she took her portrait dressed as five feminist icons, like Coco Chanel and Amelia Earhart. As a mom looking to raise an independent, strong, feminist daughter, this project seems so awesome to me. I'd love to do an Asian woman's version! Cory Aquino, Aung San Suu Kyi, Gabriela Silang -- who else would you nominate?
  • Finally, something that speaks to the heart. Angelina Jolie wrote in the New York Times about her decision to undergo a double mastectomy as preventive measure against breast cancer. Until my grandmother died of the disease last year, I never thought we had this in our family. Angelina's reason for her decision are so intense and well worth the read.

Chicago Hope (God, I miss that show) had a very similar case as Angelina Jolie's. It was an awesome episode exploring the difficult choice a family had to make. At that time, it was considered a radical procedure and I guess there were no aesthetic procedures that were available then.

Oh and I remember that episode because it was handled by Dr. Billy Kronk and Dr. Diane Grad and I majorly shipped for them. :P

There was also this Salon.com article where the writer also elected to have a double mastectomy because she had that same "bad" gene. Pero syempre since Salon.com siya ang drama ng pagkasulat, not like Angelina's which is simple and straightforward.
