Royal blue cape: Romwe
"It is now our generation's task to carry on what those pioneers began. For ur journey is not complete until our wives and mothers, and daugthers can earn a living equal to their efforts. Our journey is not complete until our gay brothers and sisters are treated like anyone else under the law - for if we are truly created equal, then surely the love we commit to one another must be equal as well.
Our journey is not complete until no citizen is forced to wait for hours to exercise the right to vote. Our journey is not complete until we find a better way to welcome the striving, hopeful immigrants who still see America as a land of opportuniy."
- Barack Obama
This quote is from Obama's inauguration speech yesterday, which I by the way recommend everyone to watch if you haven't yet. It is that good.
For the occasion, I dressed in a sort of "inaugural" way, with the royal blue cape - keeping it Democratic, sophisticated, sort of American but still plenty Swedish (do you notice that I am in fact wearing the Swedish flag's colors, the contrast between the bright yellow and the dark blue?).
