sisters witches are doin it for themselves
Man, what a time to be alive. SCOTUS just ruled in favor of women’s health rights and made reckless domestic violence a misdemeanor while the presumptive Democratic nominee is a woman. WHOA! Crazy to think how much things have changed considering that women weren’t even allowed to wear pants on the Senate floor until 1993. Freaky shit, huh?
We’re tapping on the glass ceiling and it’s ready to crack. Almost time to start throwing those Benjamins, America!
Aside from the political and economic goodness going on, us women are also helping each other feel better about our bodies. With 42% of 1st to 3rd graders girls wanting to be thinner we’re lucky that there is a finally a growing community of body positivity females because 7 year olds shouldn’t be worried about their weight.
A huge reason this blog exists is because I was part of the 42% that then became part of the 53% of teenage girls on a diet, then 58% of college girls who feel pressure to be a certain weight, and definitely was part of the 91% of women who diet because they’re unhappy with their bodies. Through a lot of hard work and finding like-minded women, I’m not longer part of the 91% and it’s been the shit.
Before, I was uncomfortable in my own skin pretty much all the time– sort of like the guy in the Tamiflu commercial who is too big for his house before takes the Tamiflu. Instead of some wacky medicine though a bunch of women helped me feel the right size for my home. I’m hella weird, I know, but hey that’s how it feels to me.
On my journey to not hate myself I encountered so many inspiring women who empowered me to find the real me. So many great books, YouTube videos, podcasts, articles, Instagram posts, and blog posts taught me I was enough the way I was, I was more than enough. My hope is to do the same and help people to realize their inner dopeness. Girl power, yo! Praise the Spice Girls for instilling the idea of girl power in me at a young age.
The more you like yourself the easier it is to support other women. Another cool thing about this blog is that I constantly get to support ballin out bad-ass women with all my monies and my tax returns. With part of this most recent tax return I decided to support 4 witchy, body positive, bad bitches: Witch Worldwide. I first discovered WW on Tunnel Vision, which is an awesome site with vintage and unique pieces for all sizes. Oh, and it’s run by four women as well! All of these women are rad AF obviously.
Witch Worldwide’s clothes are all my favorite color… black! I don’t adjust to summer colors so well so black on black is the way I go. Cruel summer, ya know. Plus, they have a ton of sassy witchy sayings on everyting. Fashion like this reminds that you don’t have to apologize for your size or what you want to wear. To make this brand even better, they have stellar customer service. They are the shit so no matter what your size is they’ve got something witchy for you.
What I’m wearing:
Velvet skater skirt Forever 21+
Motorcycle boots Sam Edelman
Feminist choker necklace Witch Worldwide
Coven (see what I did there) Kat Von D studded lipstick
Thanks to my homie girl, Callie, for taking these photos and always helping me to realize my worth. Yo, and always strive to be like Notorious RGB.
