Hey Beauties! What a RIDICULOUSLY busy week this has been. I’ve officially wrapped up yet another semester and I feel so much lighter! I can read my new books, research more ways to be a better blogger AND keep Views and the 4 songs that I like on Lemonade on repeat..YAS. Anyway, this fashion Friday (note: originally posted on Friday and updated on Monday) is about sticks and stones, which I’ll explain in a bit, and also about this great dress which is super suitable for many body types.
So, everyone will ALWAYS have something to say about the way that you look and the way that you’re shaped. Some of us are sticks, some of us are stones and some of us are somewhere between the two. The point of this is that we can be some of the strongest sticks and fiercest stones but words can hurt like hell. When this happens, think about how much of a threat you might be to someone if they are taking the time to attack you or how insecure they must be in themselves. My other quick point that I would like to say on this subject is for the sticks not to criticize a stone for being too heavy and for the stones to not crticize a stick for being a “twig”. I especially say this for people who tell the petite girls to “eat something”. Even if the “standard” seems to be to have a thinner body it can be hurtful. Also for people who label plus sized women Obese, did you open up a medical practice and get a PhD and not tell me? Yes, Obesity is a real disease but if you don’t plan on treating someone or don’t have the authority to diagnose, I’d keep that comment to yourself. At the end of the day we don’t know everyone’s body struggles, so tell her she looks FABULOUS and go about your day! You’ll feel much better and so will she.
Ok, now that everyone is full of life and encouragement…on to my look!
The amazing thing about a dress like this is 1. The neckline is elastic so you can choose to either do off-the-shoulder or a higher neckline (it was sunny and Springy soooo I wasn’t passing up an off-the-shoulder moment) and 2. It’s one of those “I feel bloated today but I still wanna be cute” kind of dresses. It’s a trendy, tie-dye MuuMuu style dress with bell sleeves and accent embroidery. You can be so comfy and FAB on your I’m not-so-hot days! YAS.
Since the dress is a subtle blue tie-dye I added my colorful Kate Spade woven hand bag and orange Michael Kors sunnies for some serious flavor vibes. Have a great weekend babes.
Lotts of Love,
