“What is one important thing our society needs? That would be harsher punishment for parole violators, Stan. Oh and World Peace!” -Gracie Lou Freebush (Miss Congeniality).
What’s a better topic to discuss than World Peace – with all this hatred/coming together going on all around the world. Well, it just so happens that I work at Peace Love World, where we aim to spread peace, love, and happiness around the world.
This shirt expresses every word I’m about to say, feel, and think. Do we not live in 2014? Because for a sec, I feel like the 1940’s is slowly creeping up on us. Racism and killings, are you kidding me! We shouldn’t be fighting each other because of the color of our skin. Who cares if we’re blue, green, or polka dot!!! We should fight for one another. We are all brothers and sisters, regardless of our skin color, or ethnic background. Stand up for one another, it takes more energy to fight and argue than to leave in peace. Protect those you love and give a helping hand to the ones you don’t know. Prime example is the recent ALS ice bucket challenge – millions coming together to raise awareness for a disease not many people were familiar with. Now millions know and millions have donated to help those in need. Everyday a new story is broadcasted, about a new killing of a young man shot dead. Enough is enough, why are we murdering the kids that are our future!
Rather than holding onto this outfit and passage for a later post, I chose to do this post and style session now because it does mean a lot to me. Plus, what better way to express a world wide concern than with words and fashion! I paired this Peace Love World basic-go-to shirt with a black (very distressed) denim. Every time I wear them, I receive two totally different compliments! Either “Ohmygod, where did you get those pants? They are awesome!” or “Hey, did you fall or jump a fence and get caught!? (lol!!) I personally love distressed anything because I love the old, rugged, and tough persona it gives off. I didn’t want to give the impression of mourning something, so what better way than my go to floppy hat, and loud statement necklace.
This shirt has become very popular with big celebrities, and i mean big!!! Oprah Winfrey, Ricky Martin, Wyclef Jean, and of course, Alina Villasante (creator and visionary of Peace Love World). These are examples on how to spread awareness, all while looking fab. This shirt is more of a fashion statement like, “I’m a fashionista and my shirt means business buddy!” So go ahead and support a good cause – a portion of the proceeds from purchasing this shirt goes to The American Red Cross Foundation.
Remember: Our society needs WORLD PEACE! If you purchase the shirt #worldpeace. ♥
