If you’ve been following me for a while or are new to the blog (WELCOME!!!) it’s clear I’m a lover of stripes. I used to follow all those “fashion rules” that said curvy women should avoid wearing stripes because they would make you look bigger. Sometimes I would want to break the rule but I was too afraid of drawing attention to myself. Once I decided to free myself from these rules, stripes were no longer taboo anymore. I slowly eased into it by pairing them with “safe” pieces like jeans. As time passed, I upped the ante and now I have striped dresses, skirts, etc. I guess the moral of the story is we shouldn’t limit ourselves, period. sometimes as women we get so caught up on what others think we deny ourselves the right to just be. For years I used to think I was too fat to travel, so I didn’t go anywhere. I stifled my love for travel for years until one day I said “fuck it!”, booked a flight and haven’t looked back since!
