Red, Pink and Lobster

I'm back, just in time for the Fourth of July! I haven't posted here on my blog for over a month due to being busy finishing up the school year, but now that I've settled into summer vacation mode I'm ready to get back to blogging again, which, hopefully, means posting at least a couple times a week. Anyway, it's hard to believe that it's the Fourth of July already! While this lobster dress from J. Crew Factory is not the most patriotic thing one could wear for the holiday, it does have red and the starfish that adorn the print are, after all, stars, so I think it can work!

I have always loved lobsters, not to eat, but just because they are oddly beautiful and strange creatures. I actually don't eat lobster, not really for ethical reasons, but just because I don't eat seafood. (I know, that's strange.) One year, I went to marine biology summer camp and we got fresh caught lobsters, not to study but to eat, and I had so much fun playing with them that I was disheartened to see them being thrown into the boiling pot! Anyway, apparently the musical group the B-52's were equally enamored by this magical crustacean, hence the song "Rock Lobster". Artist Salvador Dali was also inspired by them, creating a telephone featuring their likeness, so I think I'm in good company with my fascination with and reverence of lobsters!
