My mother and I argue over about 50% of the clothes I wear.
She doesn’t like my style.
But that’s the amazing thing about fashion.
IT DOESN’T MATTER!
It’s all about you. Not about others preconceptions or expectations. Its all about wearing things that make you feel good.
Society pushes all this bullshit down our throats about what we should wear.
Look in any Seventeen Magazine and you will find tips to find the perfect pair of jeans for YOUR shape.
But the truth is we should all wear whatever the fuck we want.
Feminism has influenced my fashion by empowering me to dress the way I want to dress
Confidence comes in all shapes and sizes.
For me I find it in crop tops and the mantra…
More things… you should def wear more things (meaning rings, scarfs, vintage broken watches, Nana’s clip on earrings.)
Excess is my nirvana.
There is that whole perceptions that feminists shouldn’t care about fashion, make-up…shaving ;)
But in my mind fashion can be feminism in action.
Instead of living within the confines of a patriarchal society that insist we be sexy but modest at the same time we consciously decide for ourselves what we want to wear and thus who we want to become.
