LIFE | Standards

Thursday, March 19, 2015

I like to say that I'm confident in who I am as a person. I'm still trying to find footing on who I truly am, but for the most part, I know who I am and what I stand for. I have 1000x times the self confidence I had 5 years ago, despite being a lot heavier than I was 5+ years ago. 

Which brings me to this topic: why do we deem worthiness and attractiveness on what number the scale reads?

Fat women are held to a different standard when it comes to beauty. 

As as plus sized individual, I can attest to that statement because, I feel like that if I don't look like I made an effort, that I'm feeding into the social stigma of "fat people are lazy and don't care about themselves", which is such a vast and unfair generalization. I would love make up and clothes even if I was thinner, but I feel like a lot of my infatuation with it came about because I wanted to look good for society. Though I abandoned that caring a long while back, the effects of that kind of problematic thinking are long lasting.

And, though there are standards of beauty and attractiveness for fat women, I also think there is a standard in which we have to reach to even be considered a worthy human being. That shouldn't exist; just because I weigh more than you, doesn't make me any less of a person than you are. So often you see and hear "worthless" strung together with "fat" in the same sentence and it's incredibly disheartening to know that people honestly feel that way.  

How often have you heard, or even said "oh she's cute for a fat girl" or "they'd be hotter if they lost some weight"? It happens all the time and no one truly understands what kind of turmoil that can put someone through.
You don't have to dress up to be a human being, and you don't have to wear make up to be considered an attractive one. You are you, unabashedly. 

Be you.

LOOKBOOK: Spring is Still Pretty Cold

Saturday, March 14, 2015

I know that Spring is a departure from the Winter, when the color comes back and the frigid temperatures become more comfortable.
But it's still cold. 
There is no way that in the beginning of Spring, you're wearing cheeky shorts and a crop top.
  It's simply too cold. 
Hat--eBay//Sweater--Thrift///Dress--Kohl's//Socks--Steve Madden//Boots--Vinted

Tights can be uncomfortable, which is why I often swap tights for over the knee socks. They're an essential for Spring! I threw a sweater over a grey tiered dress and hiked the socks up with some boots, for a monochrome but still warm Spring outfit.

Dress--Forever 21+//Chambray Shirt--Thrift//Boots--Target

A nice tee dress is perfect for Spring, because it doesn't require any extra layers to look nice. I tired a chambray shirt around my waist in lieu of a belt to add some color to the outfit and threw on some basic ankle boots.


Scarves are the perfect way to keep warm without sacrificing style, which is why I love them so much. I paired a pair of high waist jeans with a cropped sweater with lace peplum, and added a scarf for a bit of colormatching.

Hat--Forever 21//Kimono--Thrift//Top--Thrift//Shorts--Wet Seal//Boots--Target

This lookbook was in dire need of some color, so why not throw in a pale pink for good measure? This kimono is one of my most recent thrifted finds, and I found it to be perfect for the Spring season. I put it atop a lace and elephant short combo for an added layer of interest. 

This is lookbook one of two I'm doing to celebrate the impending Spring season!

I love the array of dresses you can get on Weddingshe. They really do cater towards any occasion. I personally love the beaded bodices of their dresses, and the volume of the skirts. But, Weddingshe also have dresses with simpler silhouettes, so you can wear them all year long.
