In a sea of pink, she stood out
If you hadn't noticed, we're all RNC-ing it up over here.
It's hard to ignore, right? The visitors, the traffic, the protests....
On Wednesday, I was part of a team of reporters covering the latter. During one of the early ones - sponsored by the Planned Parenthood Action Fund - I met USF grad student Natalie Rella.
In a sea of pink, she stood out.
Rella was one of the keynote speakers at the rally, held at Tampa's Julian B. Lane Riverfront Park.
While the majority of the people there were decked out in pink T-shirts,shorts and flip flops, Rella chose this chic little blue and black sheath dress, heels and a pink button that read "Uterus."
The afternoon showers that interupted the rally didn't seem to phase her either. So after our interview, I whipped out my camera and got into Deal Diva mode.
Rella was all too happy to give me the scoop.
She says she got the dress from Ann Taylor.
"It was from the sale rack," she said. " $40."
What about the shoes?
"They've been in my closet for a while," she said. "Maybe Dillards?"
Well done, I say.
