Red, White, and Bow

I've always had mixed feelings about 4th of July.  Sure, I love the summer, I love fireworks, and I love having my freedom.  But being such an Anglophile, sometimes I think if we hadn't gained our independence from England, we might all still have British accents.  And THAT would be awesome.

One thing I don't have mixed feelings about is red, white, and blue.  I mean, COME ON, how good are they as a color story??  Thank goodness our forefathers didn't stray too far from their  homeland when choosing our nation's pallet.  And since I can't resist a good theme, I like to celebrate America's birthday the whole week.  Also, I like to get the most wear our of these American flag shoes and bow that I get to wear once a year (twice if there's an election).

This is totally a Halloween costume that I took from my sister

Like I mentioned above, I also like to theme for election day.  And so do some of my coworkers

And of course we can't forget the actual 4th of July.  Every year a group of friends and I go to Disneyland for the 4th in our most patriotic attire.  

Sometimes I let our group pose in front of my house ;)
Mickey was equally patriotic

 Happy birthday America!  Thanks for inviting me to the party!


  1. Helena, you are THE CUTEST. I'm obsessed with ALL of these outfits!!! Luckily, the colors of the UK and of the US are the same, hehe. :) How awesome that you go to Disneyland for the 4th! So jealous that you live that close! Amazing and whimsical and lovely, as always.

  3. I just found your blog via the ModCloth style gallery and I absolutely love it! Seeing all your photos has just about made up my mind to grow my hair out again so I can wear my bows. (:

  4. explore photos of every sort. you'll browse wedding web site message boards and member profiles for photos of real girls sporting robes, instead of counting on skilled photos of models sporting them.
