August 1st marks the opening of the Fashion & Design Festival in Montreal.
Your body arrives with you at birth and stays with you until death. We’re all different. We can’t build a mould and expect people to all fit that mould. Fashion should be all about expression and acceptance.
Believe it or not, there is no “right way” to dress. Nobody ever has to rationalize what they wear to others. People who judge other according to their own made up standards needs to stop being a judgemental Neanderthal and go crawl back under the rock they came from.
“I wanted people to know that it’s okay to do what you want with your body and no one should tell you otherwise, because if it makes you happy then I feel like, do it.” – Tess Holliday
I wear all colours. I know myself very well. I don’t use colours to decide my gender.
I can’t wear scarves for two main reasons. The first is my neck is very short. Scarves make people with long neck look very stylish. I just look like I have a floating head. The second is my anxiety. I see a scarf and I immediately think that it would be easy for someone to use it for strangulation. That’s what living with anxiety does to you. Worst case scenario always at the forefront of your thoughts.
Life is too short to waste time matching socks! This drives my mom nuts, which only makes it more fun. lol.
