Most of us, including me, aren’t really in the mood for silly fashion photos given the current rise of fascism in the US and most of the Western world. You might argue that being all the way over in India, I’m hardly affected by this past month’s events. But some of my closest friends very much are, and I’m terrified for them. The fall of American democracy unfortunately affects us all. In case you wanted to take a few minutes off, however, and indulge in some pretties, here are some photos from last week. I know that for a lot of bloggers (and brands) staying ‘on-brand’ is a priority even at times like these, but as a brown woman and a once-immigrant, I don’t see it as an option.

Wherever you go, walk with your head held high. You’re not a waste of space. You’re not what’s “wrong” with our society. You’re not what they say you are. Don’t let other people’s negativity make you forget how wonderful you are. You are loved and I’m glad you’re here with me. 

Happy Big Girl Appreciation day, Queen! Let’s live to slay another day! XD
