When I was younger and an unabashedly proud fashionista I would have thought that was nuts (that's me posing for a picture my mom took before shuffling me off to the Everglades to spend my last summer with my dad, the "Great White Park Ranger of the Everglades." I was 17 at that time and had just graduated from high school). But I'm older now and no longer as fashion conscious as I once way-- although a pair of over-the-top Docs still get my attention.
Just kidding. I love her and want my daughter Haalie to grow up and be just like her.
That said, I do like Frandsen's use of words to frame her protest as she goes on to say:
is my personal protest against a broken system.
We need to decide: is fashion to die for?"
