I wish to thank Omar Lisandro for posting about this magnificent wall on his Instagram, because I never would’ve known about it. Not only is it happy and colorful, but it also has a deeper meaning to many. This past weekend was the annual Pride parade and festivities in Houston. ‘Pride’ is the term used in the LGBT community that is a positive stance against discrimination and violence towards their community and helps to promote their self-affirmation, dignity, equality rights, increase their visibility as a social group, build community, and celebrate sexual diversity and gender variance (info via Wikipedia).
For this particular post, I wanted the wall to be the statement, so I chose to do an all-white ensemble. I had found a really cool vintage jumpsuit with small ribbon bows at a recent estate sale, and paired it with vintage white Ferragamo heels and vintage sunglasses with white frames. I then took a couple bits of thrifted white lace to add more texture to the jumpsuit as a belt, while the other lace piece doubled as a headscarf. For this occasion, less truly is more.
To all my friends and fans in the LGBT community – you are loved!
If you stop by the wall, be sure to use the hashtag: #PrideWallHTX
