RIP Oscar de la Renta

I hope you are stay now in a better place

"Never, ever confuse what happens on a runway with fashion. A runway is spectacle. It’s only fashion when a woman puts it on. Being well dressed hasn’t much to do with having good clothes. It’s a question of good balance and good common sense."

— Oscar de la Renta *Dressed (via glamour)

Anonymous said: oh come on leave oscer alone. he's a great athlete and hasn't he gone through enough? the court has spoken.

No I will not.

He killed someone. Reeva Steenkamp is dead because of him. And he’s only serving five years in jail for it. FIVE. Plus, he could leave jail after 10 months. That’s just a slap on the wrist.There are people sitting in jail right now for years, possibly for the rest of their lives, for committing a less serious crime than Oscar did. 

Honestly, this verdict sounds to me like a serious case of Affluenza and I feel as though I have every right to be disappointed.

And hasn’t he gone through enough? Are you serious? So what, just because he put on a big performance in court and cried like a baby I’m supposed to feel sorry for him? I don’t think so. The only people in this scenario who I feel sorry for are the Steenkamps. They lost their daughter because of this trigger happy narcissist, who was so eager to shoot something that he couldn’t be bothered to LOOK NEXT TO HIM to check whether or not the only other person in the house was still there. Or check to make sure she was the person in the bathroom. And I don’t buy the burglar story. Every South African is afraid of crime, and there are plenty out there who own guns, but you don’t see all of them shooting at the slightest provocation

Nice try though

This white man really said his reason for beating up this Black woman is that he thought she was a prostitute, as if that makes it fine. He says it so casually, like beating up a sex worker is justifiable. She’s a domestic worker going to work to clean homes and this asshole jumps out of his car to beat her up. This man saw a Black woman in his neighborhood and flew into a rage. Her mere existence put him over the edge. Despite beating the poor woman up, this guy thinks he’s the one being victimized because he’s white. That’s a synopsis of race relations in a nutshell.
