Somebody told me that this combo of colours was something related to our British Queen or in some way some traditional British colours.
I may admit I didn't know about this but anyway it kind of fit with what I wanted to expose today.
I expected this post to be vintage and retro as "usual" cause I know myself well but I mainly wish to give the impression of a female Robin Hood character thanks to my green tilt hat... Don't know about you , but to me it's exactly what I can imagine !
Robin Hood was a character spreading the idea of freedom, fighting for peace like so many other. Even contested sometimes I want to embrace a similar role towards feminism.
This word so altered and denied is a simple step to face reality or should I say inequality.
I don't want to be only for one gender type, please do not get me wrong. I am not even trying to tell this to blame men. No, that will definitely be the opposite.
I wish to be feminist and to blame women. Why ? Because I think , there is still so much to progress and it shameful than some of this evolution is paused because there is some women who don't want to think about it and who think they're happy like they are.
It is because of you: Old woman who thinks that's only the way we use to do. It is because of you: Young Pin-up girl who thinks old was good so it's normal to be a good "housewife" and to be proud of the name. It is because of you: The lady who only dresses in Gray, black, or in Summer White maybe. The good length of a skirt will be under or just above the knees but that's all.
I wouldn't try to be too good at work because anyway I will have kids one day.
I am a good person because I am a teacher, a doctor or anything if only I could tag myself.

So Women , I know being the "firsts" to do something I know it's hard. But please do what you want to do. And think. Think of what YOU really want.
Do not hide behind something. Behind a style, a job, a husband, a wife, parents, children, people and fake ideas.
