DID YOU KNOW THAT
1. The color purple was the most venerable color in the Roman Empire. It was so much worshiped that only the emperor and his family had the right to wear clothes in purple.
2. It wasn't until World War II, when fabric was rationed, that it became socially acceptable for women to wear shorts in public.
3. Jeans were originally designed for cowboys and industrial workers, but started to become more and more popular as casual wear during the 1950s and 1960s. Can you imagine not owning a pair of jeans?
4. The modern bikini didn't exist until 1946; it was named after an atoll in the Asia Pacific area where the US military tested nuclear devices after World War II. It was later declared a sin by the Vatican and banned in numerous countries!
5. Over the course of her lifetime, the average American women supposedly spends over $100,000 on clothing!
6. More than 2 billion t-shirts are sold each year! This isn't much of a surprise; besides jeans, t-shirts are probably one of the most common pieces of clothing in the world.
7. GPS shoes have actually been invented; pretty soon your parents will be able to track you through your footwear!
8. In Medieval times people considered white dresses a symbol of sadness until Queen Victoria decided to wear a white dress for her wedding day.
I want to shout out a big thank you to all the volunteers who have supported Angie and me in our campaigns. The phoners, door knockers, pamphlet deliverers, hoarding crews, food preparers, data enterers, moral supporters and any other job I haven't mentioned you are all amazing!!! Our team is still busy and will be working flat out tomorrow. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! ❤️❤️ #LetsDoThis#changethegovt
Taking myself off for a mini break on Election Day eve, and reflecting on how ridiculously fortunate we are here in NZ. Despite our issues (namely, domestic/child abuse, youth suicide, housing crisis, etc.) we have one of the least corrupt governments in the world, it's easy and encouraged to vote, it is safe to be outspoken about our views, and we have one of the youngest female leaders with genuine interest in meaningful social change with a very real shot of being our next prime minister. #letsdothis#newzealand#vote#haveyoursay#change#reform#wecandothis
