Fashion forward!

BY Maggie in Style

I'm so sick of reading about the distaste that some idiots had on Michelle Obama 's outfit on the night of her husband's historical victory. As I saw it, the modified version of the Narcisco Rodriguez's dress was showing off her confidence in not being pigeonholed into wearing those lame-ass, boring suit-dresses. We still have ways to go, but I think it's awesome that powerful women are getting closer to be being on the same playing field as men, but why do they have to dress like them too? We all know that Michelle is incredibly intelligent, successful and naturally gorgeous. Read More

Not only did I have a new and exciting prez to vote for this election, but it seemed like an endless amount of propositions that I had get on too. One of the most important and controversial one is Prop 8 . It would eliminate the right of same-sex couples to marry in the state of California. Hellz NO was I going to vote yes on that nasty Prop 8. Why would we want to deny other citizens their legal rights just because of their sexual orientation? This is the same bullshit that was thrown at women and people of different races and nationalities. Read More
The Hawaiian term for grandparent is tutu and Obama shortened the term for his beloved grandmother to Toot. He called her his rock and she was the matriarch that helped raised him and his sister, Maya Soetoro-Ng in Honolulu. Madelyn Dunham peacefully died from cancer in her sleep at 86 in Hawaii. Madelyn Dunham was a REAL maverick! She was a feminist trailblazer and moved up from being a secretary to one of the first women vice presidents for the Bank of Hawaii in the 60's and 70's.
