dress-size

I’m so ecstatic about this dress!!!!! It’s scuba and a textile I made by layering different furniture fabrics. I can’t wait for the fashion show and the editorial shoot for these babies!!!!!

The design belongs to me! Please don’t repost!!

Spider dress, spider dress, doing whatever a spider… dress… does.  This is what I wore out to the boyfriend’s birthday dinner and I loved it!  I’m sorry the same damned shrug is in every outfit photo, but I seriously have found the perfect one and wear it everywhere.  Those booties were not nearly as comfortable as I imagined they’d be, but I didn’t walk long enough for them to hurt or bother my ankle.  They’re still going back.  I don’t do painful shoes, no matter how cute they are.  They also wore a hole in my favorite pair of tights, justice shall be swift.

My overhead lights from the studio still suck (disregard the giant box o’ fabric >_>), but you can see my purple hair better now since bleaching and going over it :D.  My hair is some kind of stupid resilient because it doesn’t even feel like I bleached it at all.  Daddy-O has actually changed the tint of the purple as well to more bluish and removed the red-violet tint leftover from the hot pink incident.  The Jungle conditioner bar, however, is a giant piece of weirdly scented poop (I used it correctly) and does exactly zero for my hair (other than leaving a greasy residue, ew).

ABCs of Marilyn Monroe

→ D: Dress size

Marilyn’s dress size has been up for debate for years. Rumours that she was a size 16 (UK) were widely believe to be true. In April 2009, a journalist for The Times, who was a size 12 (UK) had the chance to try some of Marilyn’s clothes on. To her surprise, the clothing did not fit - and it wasn’t because they were too big! Quite the opposite actually, the clothes were too small. It is her opinion, which cannot be denied, is credible, due to her own experience, that Marilyn was a size 8 (UK) or at her “heavier” moments a size 10 in today’s sizes. Although Marilyn was a very curvy woman, she was a lot smaller than many people believe and in reality would never have fit size 16 clothing.

Since when were curves dismissed as not being ‘normal’ or 'beautiful’

we’re all taught to love our bodies but how can we when we’re fed such crap from magazines about size 0 being the new size 2. 

How can a number define beauty? simple…it can’t.

We’re all different, but as a child I was taught this was a good thing.

Fuck society’s idea of beauty.
