Sporty 90's Grunge

Thursday, October 13, 2016 Sam 0 Comments

Was the sun my worst enemy today? You bet your space buns it was. Speaking of space buns, mine turned out pretty great. Not bad for a newbie!

I usually forgo shooting on ungodly bright days (I'm in Seattle so it's generally not a problem) but I couldn't wait another day to shoot this outfit. It's so deliciously 90s. And sporty. And grunge. I honestly feel like I should be running track in a 90s high school drama. So if sporty 90s grunge wasn't already a thing, it is now. 

Before I go, I want to talk about horizontal stripes. Because I, as a chubby, petite woman, have been told over and over and fucking over that I can't wear them. That they'll make me look heavier and that's a bad thing. Just this year I've come to the conclusion that I don't have to care. I may not know my purpose on this Earth but I sure as hell know it's not to make myself look smaller. It's not to make my body more pleasing to look at or more agreeable to those around me. I like stripes and I'll wear them. Like what you like and wear it. 

Fuck arbitrary and archaic body rules.
