occupylsx

I went to Occupy the London Stock Exchange protest today. I was really impressed with what everyone is doing, there is even a library, a university and a fully functioning kitchen giving out free food. There are talks throughout the day and even people giving out random acts of kindness (today it was free pineapple; yay!).

2pm meeting. Sadly I couldn't hear anything they said. An eagle eyed person can spot my friend Venus, founder of Reclaim Love, sat in the circle.

I left, feeling inspired that people can fight back and there is still fighting spirit out there; people who haven't given up and accepted their fate.

Afterwards I stepped onto a tube on the central line and sat down in front of three girls. As soon as I sat down they started whispering to one another. I quickly realised I was wearing the same skirt the girl opposite me had just bought. He friend then said loudly "don't worry, you will rock it better then her". Yeah great, thanks. Who says things like that to peoples faces? The girl looked like a cross between Lydia Deetz from Beetlejuice and Pat Butcher from EastEnders. Most bizarre.

Anyway, here is said outfit which they talked about:

so I realise combining Occupy the London stock exchange and a 'what I wore' post is probably contradictory....but I actually wasn't going to post what I wore until those three girls were mean to me!!!
