The magical pink boxing gloves are making their third stop. After visiting the West Coast (Oregon and California), they headed east and are now in Louisiana. Cajun country!
Wearing the gloves with aplomb is Sarah, one of my favorite bloggers. I follow Sarah's blog because she wears clothes that I might choose. Unlike some bloggers, Sarah is a real person, someone you'd consider a girlfriend. I often ask Sarah for advice and she's always there for me with wise words.
Sarah works as a video producer. Blogging was a way for her to evolve her personal style and it worked -- her choices have become stronger and bolder as she explores new fashion possibilities. I relate to Sarah's use of blogging as a tool for personal growth and admire the progress she's made. You can easily see her development by reading her old and new posts.
Check out the creative way Sarah played with the boxing gloves. She used them to create a metaphor on how we battle ourselves internally. That's so clever.
If you want, add yourself to the growing list of glove-wearers. Their next stop is in Texas and after that, the gloves will go up north to Canada and then over the Atlantic Ocean to Europe. If I hear from a blogger in the Artic, she'll be the last one to get them!
Aw, I love seeing the rounds these gloves are making (pun fully intended)!ReplyDelete
This is such a wonderful way to bring people together. Thank you so much for your kind words on my blog - it really helps to see there are so many caring people in the world!ReplyDelete
I love Sarah and this photo is brilliant!ReplyDelete
What a great use of Photoshop for a change! LOL Brilliant.ReplyDelete
I tried to leave a comment on Sarah's blog to say how cool it was but for some reason I couldn't.
Such a clever photo, great job!!!ReplyDelete
That is fantastic. I wish I had a blog just so I could join in!ReplyDelete
You don't need a blog, only some way of putting a photo on the Internet. There are many photo-sharing websites that would enable you to do this.Delete
Ooh, I'm excited to be on the list! Hmmm...what do you think? An evening gown with them??ReplyDelete
(PS - Arctic - you missed the first 'c') ;-P
Creativity can express itself in metaphor, as Sarah used, or contradiction, which you propose. I think the contrast between a formal evening gown and boxing gloves would be genius!Delete
And thanks, fellow pedant, for correcting my spelling. I guess you know this word since you're closer!
Ah this is one of the posts that I missed while on holidays. What a great idea Ally, and it looks like it's going to go one for more than a few months.ReplyDelete
I hope you are going to keep a record of where they are going.
While they are in Australia I'd love to give them a go .. even though I'm not a fashion blogger, I'm sure I could work out a way to put boxing gloves and bikes into one post.
That is if I'm not too late ...Delete
Add me to the gloves list plzzz! In in NC! I love it!ReplyDelete
Ha ha, this is such a fun idea!xReplyDelete
Aw, cool! I didn't realize it wasn't two people at first.ReplyDelete
Ally, those are such nice words and everything you wrote is just so kind and completely appreciated. I'm glad you liked the way that post turned out. I had sooo much fun. I'm also glad that we've been able to connect online!ReplyDelete
Me too, Sweetie.Delete
