FACT: Fashion and style are primarily an art form for women.
FACT: People generally assume that those who are interested in fashion and style are vain and superficial.
FACT: Society holds a woman’s physical appearance in great esteem.
And when you put them all together...
Women are greatly valued for their looks and encouraged to ornament themselves in any which way, so as to make themselves appear more beautiful ie. of more value to society. And so we are granted great creative freedom in fashion and style, and have turned it into a form of art where we can express ourselves in ways that men cannot. And then this one facet of life in which women are granted the greatest creative freedom is inextricably linked to being trivial and shallow? Dats some reeeeeeeeal bullshit, ya know?
Whatever, jokes on you boys. We're taking over the world (one fierce ensemble at a time) and you didn't even see it coming.
Thrifted dress (Is this a dress? It is now. #FashionHacker) and heels.
Until next time,
