Me Too...

There is so much to be said on this subject, and speaking from experience, simply being able to hear other people's stories can have a huge impact on healing. So, yes, just the fact that women are speaking out, will in itself help other victims. So for this post, I am simply sharing my own stories. And of course the specific point of #metoo is to shed light on the magnitude of the problem. I don't know what the solution is, but I do hope that this helps in some small way, if only to help some of my readers to feel as if they're not alone, and that healing is possible.

Have you ever been sexually harassed or assaulted? Me too...

With the phrase "grab them by the pussy" reverberating since the presidential election (unfortunately) and new and disgusting details of the Weinstein scandal surfacing by the day, it is hard to keep anxieties at bay.

Sponsored: The Top Trends in Homecoming Dresses for Fall 2013


As I researched for the top trends in homecoming dresses 2013, I was reminded just how long it's been since I was in high school. Homecoming, as well as prom dresses, were much longer when I attended school dances. The current trends for homecoming dresses vary, though they all have one thing in common - they are nearly all above the knee or hi-low hemmed. I think they're adorable and much more suited to a fun high school look.

The most popular of the looks is the strapless sweetheart fit-and-flare dress. You can make this look edgy or girly, depending on the dress and accessories. Some of the strapless fit and flare dresses come in super-glam styles, with glittered or gem bodices. Hi-low hems have also been very trendy for teens and adults in the last few years, and the trend has become a classic that is here to stay. A hi-low dress gives the fun look of a short dress with the added drama of a longer dress. Texture like pleating, ruffles, and rosettes are always on trend. It's the perfect way to add a little extra something to a short dress.

Color trends vary for homecoming dresses this fall. Neutrals like white and black are very popular. Not one particular color leads the way, though the some of the most popular colors are rich, bold hues like fuchsia, aqua, and royal purple. Of course color blocking is still on trend, so a two-toned homecoming dress is a popular choice.
