"One is not born a woman, one becomes one"...with the help of this very cool t-shirt.
So there is this woman named Paige Orloff, who I have never met, but, who like me, used to live in L.A. and did the whole film/TV exec thing before she packed it all in and moved east. But in her case, not to a teenytiny apartment in downtown Manhattan but to a farmhouse in upstate New York. With, like, chickens.
Anyway, I had heard her name over the years and, according to Facebook, we had all these mutual friends, and I stumbled upon this fantastic blog she does with a group of other women called The Sister Project,. The other day she had a post about this very cool woman named Lindsay Keating who has a shop on Etsy called KM Stitchery where she sells these amazing t-shirts and dresses with hand-stenciled visages of feminist icons like Simone de Beauvoir (whose quote "One is not born a woman, one becomes one" was one of the millions posted on the bulletin board that I used to have hanging over my desk in L.A.) and Frida Kahlo
Both of which I am ordering.
So check out Paige's blog and Lindsay's shop.
(P.S. Can I just say I'm very proud of myself for having blogged FOUR days in a row?!)
