I love your passion for fashion. my passions for equality and inclusiveness as well as for fashion are finally coming together: i'd love to someday make an impact int he fashion world in helping it become more inclusive to all sizes, genders, races and abilities, but for now I'm just working on including everyone in my personal fashion blog. I'm tired of seeing thin, white, rich cis abled women. there's more beauty out there! I'd love your feedback or any resources you
Hello! I think part of yr message was cut off, but that’s ok. I think I know where you’re coming from. Did you know Tumblr doesn’t date when messages come in? I also don’t come to the dashboard as often as I should. I’m sorry I didn’t respond to you sooner, but I just now saw this.
My passion for fashion was an early habit. I went from James and the Giant Peach to Glamour, Harper’s Bazaar and Cosmopolian. Literally. I was a total advocate of the G Spot at age 11 b/c I’d read those magazines from cover to cover and as long as I was reading, my Mom was happy. And even though I own none of it, Hermes, Comme de Garçon and Chanel were names that became a consistent comfort.
I can only encourage you to keep doing whatever you are doing to reach your final goals, no matter how small it feels. I assure you it’s WAY better than doing nothing, thus creating impotent rage that simply alienates people. You are making an impact b/c you are aggregating the essence of your goal and broadcasting it to the Interwebs. And so are millions of other people, I know. You’ve been given the privilege of free speech and using it is the best thing you can do with it b/c a lot of people I don’t have respect for are REALLY involved in using it, so isn’t your effort at least equal to your right to express yourself the best you can, right now? Keep it up, research/fact check before you publish (Seriously, for your own personal knowledge that you aren’t disseminating bad information.), spelling matters, don’t let the Interwebs get you down, and stay true to your vision no matter what your vision evolves to, or how many times it evolves.
Don’t get me started on what I am tired of seeing. ;)
