◅◅BABOOSHKA, BABY▻▻

leggings c/o babooshka, thrifted denim vest, american apparel cropped top, boots from uo, bag from euphoria, triangle necklace c/o under the pyramids, random jewelry

The only thing not perfect about today is that Sticky is at the vet getting spayed. All I can picture is my little bearlamb in a crate, scared and wondering where I am. I wish I could know her thoughts. I wish she had a voice. A lot of people were against having her spayed because (obviously) her babies would be adorable and well behaved. My initial thinking was "OMGYES. Her puppies would be FREAKING PERFECT." Approximately 3 seconds after this reoccurring daydream, my logic kicks in and reminds me that there are millions of dogs in shelters and I certainly don't need to contribute to the rapidly growing overpopulation because of something so shallow as cuteness. Every year some insane number in the millions of animals are put in shelters or are roaming around with no home. Of these millions, about half get adopted while the other half are euthanized. A lot of these animals were once litters of cats or pups that were purposely bred and sold to families, while some of them are just a result of careless owners not spaying or neutering their pets. Animals aren't choosy, people. Their intense hormonal drive to procreate is instinctual and they WILL have babies. Lots of babies. And the majority of those babies will end up needing to be adopted at shelters. These are the animals you should be adopting. Quit going to breeders. Quit going to pet stores. It only perpetuates more breeding and less adoption of pets in need. Go to your local humane society or shelter, unless you're lucky enough to find a Stick wondering around your neighborhood, homeless and needing a friend.

What did that have to do with fashion? Nothing. Well, Sticky wears clothes sometimes. So there's my pathetic attempt at a relevant connection.

On a side note - these leggings are the shizzzzz - bright and shiny gunmetal space cadet, and hyped to be worn, especially after finally watching Thor. Thank you, Babooshka, these leggings rule. Check them out here. They've got a ton of rad items on major sale at the moment. And seriously, I say the word 'babooshka' probably upwards of 6 times a week, making me love this store even more. Babooshka babooshka babooshka!

  1. Those leggings are sick. For some odd reason, I immediately thought of Space Balls when I saw your leggings, although it should probably remind me of astronauts but I guess that's because my teacher talked about Space Balls in class today...

  8. Those leggings are super cool. Also, as much as I would want my own pups to have kids of their own, I really agree with you. There are so many animals that need love. Rescue and adopt!
