While driving through Chicago’s West Loop neighborhood one day, I noticed this interesting design on a building’s wall. I immediately thought it would be a great place for a photoshoot featuring a simple and graphic outfit. So the other week, my friend Alison and I headed over there and had a little fun in the sun snapping pictures.

This Alexander Wang shirtdress is an easy and versatile piece for Summer. It’s breezy and flowy to keep me cool, and it can be easily dressed up and down. I’m even considering wearing it over slim black pants once Fall/Winter comes along. What do you think?

      • First, Palestinians are poorer than riedsents of all Middle Eastern countries on your list. Look at a recent list of countries’ GDP per capita. Tehran has basic urban infrastructure, modern health and education, and a fair amount of access to normal consumer goods; Gaza has none of that. They’re also more brutalized than most of those countries. Iranians who protest are often tortured or shot; Palestinians are bombed or lynched regardless of what they do. The only places on your list where the violence is really comparable are Iraq and nowadays Syria; Egypt and Libya, which you say are on the verge of chaos, in fact just got hard-earned democratic governments and a respite from being ruled by authoritarian bandits.And it goes beyond brutality and income. In the 1980s, Thomas Friedman wrote of the situation before the Intifada: “Palestinians were not the most brutalized Arabs, but they were certainly the most humiliated Arabs.” The only jobs many could get were serving Jews, or building settlements in their own territory. So regardless of the fact that today Palestinians really are among the most brutalized Arabs, their situation is analogous to that of slaves, or people under colonialism, who may be richer than people in a uniformly poor countries, but are still within their rights to demand equality.
