#360 red, white and blue

Memorial Day is considered the official start of summer.  It used also mean that you could now wear white shoes until Labor Day.  Any sooner than that was considered a taboo.

Are there any similar fashion rules that remain in effect?  I think now anyone can wear any color on any day.  And as I have written, why limit yourself to the same color for all 10 nails, or your hair, or your socks or anything else.  The fashion palette has exploded.

But Memorial Day is more than picnics and white shoes.  

As you go out to celebrate on this Memorial Day, dig through that closet of yours and find some red, white and blue to wear.  Take a moment to remember those who died in battle so that we could enjoy our many real freedoms, not just in accessorizing, but in those that truly matter like free speech, the right to assemble and to bear arms.

Most days you dress to express your individualism.  Dress today to commemorate your community as part of this great nation.
