You Can't Wear That!
Firstly, I would like to say a massive well done to Debs, over at
http://www.wannabeprincess.co.uk for starting the #WeAreTheThey campaign and bringing this issue to the media's attention.
For far too long, people have been telling women (and men) "You can't wear that!" Well guess what? We can. And we will.
You know why? Because we are the they you are talking about and we are taking back the power - the power to wear horizontal stripes, bold pints, white, short skirts, fitted shirts, body con dress, and bikinis. In short, the power to wear whatever the hell we want.
Why? Because we can and we should wear what we want.
What we can't do is let small minded people tell us who we are or who we should be. Your personal style is a big part of who you are. Own it!
Want to wear black lipstick even though you've been told you're too pale? Do it!
Want to wear a bikini even if you have been told you can't because you have stretchmarks? Do it!
Want to wear hot pants even if you don't have an ass like Kylie? Do it!
Want to wear whatever you want even if you've been told you're too thin/too fat/too tall/too short/too old? Do it!
I could go on here, but I think I've made my point. Show the haters their opinions are, and always will be, irrelevant. Stand up (figuratively and literally) and say "this is me and I will wear whatever I want to". Go on stand up and shout it right now, and mean it! Take back the power!
Most importantly, show the door to anyone who tells you "You can't wear that!". Because you can!
Check out these other fab blogs from women who are giving haters the middle finger:
