It’s been a while since I’ve written a blog post but I wanted to share this pretty green eyelet dress. Social distancing gets tricky when it comes to creating blog content and add the current state of the world too, and it feels wrong to be posting right now. But it felt good to do a social distancing shoot with Kelly for the first time in months.
And while I’m going back to “normal,” normal was never normal. Because we can’t afford to go back to normal when it’s oppression that we’ve been conditioned to accept and normalize. Body positivity has always meant liberation for ALL bodies, but particularly for those most marginalized. I’m listening, learning, making mistakes, and always striving to be better than I was the day before.
Details on this dress: I got this bold green eyelet dress 50% off on J.Crew (here) and ultimately, the fit isn’t great for my petite frame. Petite sizing tends to stop at a size 12 which is so frustrating because it appears that brands seem to believe that short people are exclusively thin. Obviously that isn’t the case at all. Agh! So I went with regular sizing because I had no alternative (which is available in sizes XXS-3X) but petite sizing would’ve been a million times better for me. It also comes in white and hot pink. Scroll to the bottom of the post for some other fun green dresses that I’m loving!
