Laundry day.

“That’s what makes the account @dietprada a delight for fashion nerds. It’s a collection of all those ‘I think I’ve seen this before …’ runway moments, pairing familiar-looking pieces with their alleged inspirations.”

“Femininity is not a bad thing, however, I really do detest the idea that fat women are only seen as attractive within society when we are wearing lingerie, or have a face full of makeup on or when we have a sultry expression on our faces. Don’t get me wrong, the aforementioned are all things that are valid, as fat women deserve to feel sensual and to explore our sexuality in all forms, however, the problem occurs when it becomes the standard by which society uses to judge all fat people in order to be seen as socially attractive, or to cement physical validation.”

“… a wide range of images of similarly clad men in shirts and trousers who I had worked with over the years flashed across my mind like a monotonous, monochromatic movie. I must say I felt a bit miffed at not having this power to determine how good men were at their work from what they wore! Their boring choices in clothes seemed to keep them immune to such judgements. And women, being more adventurous, must thus face the jury.”
