please don’t praise me for being thin

So my most recent post seemed to resonate with several of my people, particularly fellow blogger people who understand the FOMO, the ridiculousness, and sometimes the (oft self-imposed) pressure to post/buy/perform/act happy/otherwise be a successful-seeming human while sometimes feel like you’re dying on the inside. With that in mind, I’ve been thinking a lot about expectations, body image and how we discuss these topics as modern, evolved, go-get-’em-and-give-’em-hell-while-you’re-at-it women. Too...

Not just the lifespan of the pieces themselves that comprise my closet (though this is certainly important) but my style itself: when I look back, my style has evolved… and it hasn’t.
