Why must you convince me, Zara, that life without that Celine-esque sheath is the definition of real struggle?
The crux of it, in my opinion, is your knowing and proclaiming what you genuinely value and enjoy, rather than fashioning those traits around other people’s expectations.
There’s a problematic myth in society that simply because you’re a “nice” guy, you deserve rewards (usually in the form of sexual favors). When those rewards aren’t provided, we as women often get girlfriendzoned.
In case you, too, are fed up with the fashion sphere’s selective cheering for a small subset of the blogger population, I’ve rounded up some of my favorite sites to revisit, coupled with my reasoning for why that is–namely, an absolute pride and confidence in their femininity (and not femininity as defined by the upper echelons of society).
“I do love writing, but it’s dangerous–or at least unwise–to stay still.” Talking to The New York Times style writer Bee-Shyuan Chang Shapiro about what she took away from her twenties, and how she ended up in the highly coveted spot she’s in today, after the jump!

In honor of the start of the week, let’s press the reset button and start anew with some inspiring images, reads, films, and tunes.
