Why Can’t it Be Like That by taggiecb (63k, E)

Louis Tomlinson, head of his local hospital’s charity fund, suddenly finds himself in the heart of the Royal family when his mother marries the third son of the reigning monarch. Such an upset in lifestyle brings a lot of changes for Louis, one of them being the need for a stylist.

Enter Harry Styles, a cutting edge fashion stylist who loves his job and prides himself on his passion. The first time he sees Louis Tomlinson on the cover of a tabloid he wants to dress him, style him, make him as beautiful as Harry knows he could be. When he’s hired to do just that, he knows this will be a perfect partnership. That is, until he actually meets the man.

A fashion AU with a royal twist, where Louis doesn’t need a stylist, Harry’s thrilled to have a real life Barbie doll, and they’re both very wrong about each other.

Political prisoner Leonard Peltier once wrote, “When you grow up Indian, you don’t have to become a criminal, you already are a criminal.” Through the drug trade, U.S. government has effectively marketed the policing and imprisonment of minorities as the key to public safety, and therefore marked them as targets of state terror. This unearths how Native men can be incarcerated at four times the rate of white men, how Native women can be incarcerated at six times the rate of white women. It demonstrates how the flooding of crack cocaine into Black communities during the ’70s correlated with a sharp increase in minimum sentencing laws that helped put 1.7 million Black people under some form of correctional control. It reveals how native Hawaiians, who represent just 20 percent of the state’s population, can comprise 40 percent of the its incarcerated. […] Indeed, of minorities and the poor it fashions enemies of the state with the intent to exercise terror. From the origins of police, to the school-to-prison-pipeline, to the vast network of U.S. incarceration, this has been the enduring legacy of the American judicial system — not safety, and certainly not justice.

Heavy Metal Astrology: Female Libra Fashion

“Does my bum look big in this?” is a question Libran women never have to ask themselves. Blessed with superb taste and a critical eye, a Libra woman never finds herself in a fashion crisis, even if she does take awhile to choose which outfit best suits. She has chic tastes but will dare to be different by dressing up a classical look with an unexpected accessory. A perfectionist, Libran women are always pulled together, not a stray hair out of place, the entire outfit balanced and subtle. Makeup is usually light and natural, with colors matched and coordinated.

Grace and charm are the birthright of the Libra woman. This sign is ruled by lovely Venus, and her Libran daughters personify everything that is feminine. The Libra woman has an inborn instinct to know how to dress for each occasion, and how to present herself at her best no matter where she is.

The Libran woman tends to find her own style, rather than slavishly follow fashion. Not that she doesn’t love fashion, she loves it to die for, but she knows what suits her, and, if necessary, she will adapt the latest styles to make sure they are flattering. She knows that fashion should not overpower or obliterate the person. So she will always have something unique about her, even if she is wearing the same clothes as everyone else.

The Libra woman isn’t as concerned with timeless quality as some other signs. She wants something that make her look good now, for the occasion or work she is engaged in, something that fits her lifestyle and her mood. This can be casual jeans and halter top, or it can be a ball gown. The Libra woman never looks out of place.

She enjoys shopping, especially with friends. Shopping is a social occasion, which includes stopping at favorite coffee shops and getting to know the assistants at her favorite stores. They are not just faceless people to the Libra woman, She enjoys getting to know people, and finding common interests. While many of her relationships may seem trivial or fleeting, all of them are important to her, part of her groove.

Like any woman, she loves a bargain, but won’t mind if she doesn’t find one, just as long as she finds what she wants. The Libran woman loves well fitting jeans and pretty tops, and she shops hard for appropriate clothes for work and play. She doesn’t believe in over-accessorizing, but a great bag or pair of shoes will put her on top of the world. She looks just as stunning casually dressed as she does dressed up for a night on the town.

The Libran woman tends to prefer her hair long, with lots of layering and highlights. Her fresh complexion is often her best asset and she likes to play this up with a light hand in makeup. She loves light, glossy make-up, and fruity flavored lip gloss is one of her obsessions. She may have every flavor on the market.

Fragrance is one of the most important beauty aids to the Libra woman. She loves to smell good, and chooses cosmetics for their fragrance as well as their usefulness. She is obsessive about her teeth, probably wore braces and now loves to smile and laugh and show off her straight teeth. She may have several different brushes and toothpaste, as well as mouthwash, dental floss and tooth whitener.

She favors simple pieces of jewelry with sentimental value over buckets of bling. A simple locket with a picture of a loved one, or ID bracelet may be all she wears. Her natural simplicity is often very sexy, and irresistibly attractive. She never seems to lack for friends and lovers, and falls in and out of love easily, but what does it take to win the heart of this Mall Princess?

Honesty and sincerity, it’s as simple as that. Her judgment can often be faulty, but not for long. She is still charming about it, but while she will put up with a lot from the one she loves, an outright lie is usually the last straw. She fares best with another air sign, Gemini or Aquarius, as they recognize her need for honest communication. But when it comes to sheer excitement, she often falls for her opposite sign, Aries.

I’m continuing my research into medieval textiles and fashion, and there’s all this fascinating etiquette about wearing gloves in the middle ages:

  • Gloves were never worn when taking the hand of your dancing partner
  • The act of picking up the glove of one’s lady love was a sign of deep devotion. Men sought permission to pick up their lady love’s glove and return or retain it. 
  • The manner in which a man wore gloves and the way he removed them had to be given careful attention while he was paying court to his beloved. “There were subtle meanings in the manipulation of the glove, which might have serious consequences.”
  • Giving someone a gift of gloves was a special way to recognize one’s indebtedness to the recipient, or to acknowledge the receipt of a favor. Gloves were also given to guests by the host at a banquet or ceremony. 
  • If you were a fashionable noble in the 1400s, you carried your gloves slung in a belt around your waist, or in a pouch at your waist.
  • It was considered a great insult to address a high personage, or to greet a friend, without first removing the glove of the right hand. 
  • Gloves treated with poison were favorite gifts to send to your greatest enemy.
