Eff flattering redux

Hello you!

It's time to whip out the ol' Gisela Ramirez tee again.

Sometimes I want my clothes to be flattering and sometimes I don't care a stuff. Ultimately, no one owes anyone else flattering clothes. I think fat people are shamed into wearing too many clothes or clothes that cover their whole body way too much, and that's because a lot of people don't want to look at fat bodies. Well, stuff dat.

When I was a kid my mum told me lots of 'rules' about fat people and clothing - that we can't wear short skirts, expose our arms or anything like that. She still lives by those rules. I don't. I've been unlearning them for about the last 10 years or so. I'm thankful to live in a generation where we were encouraged to question our elders. I think that's one big difference between my generation and my mum's.

I might still have a way to go, but I'm knocking down boundaries all the time.

P.S. I need a maxi skirt in alll the colours. Kthxbai.

You know, next summer I'm going to take alllllll my blog photos (even for the clothes I haven't bought yet, ha) because I hate this absence of light. Yeah, I'm just gonna stand there naked and take loads of shots of me with different lipstick and necklaces on and just photoshop clothes on me later. Hahaha.

I WISH! Is anyone else craving Spring purely for the light?

Thanks for reading.
