Today I saw my first (and I'm sure it will not be my last) negative comment on the internet. Someone had pinned a photo of me to pinterest (in a very sweet way) and someone posted a comment saying that my outfit made me look short and pudgy and was not flattering at all. It happened to be the outfit I had just done with my trousers.
I have news for that person...I am short. I don't believe I'm pudgy, but I do believe I get to wear what I want because I like it. I know all of us girls are probably guilty of (at one time in our lives perhaps) saying Ohh, that girl should not wear that, she looks horrid, etc. But I'm super tired of women hating on women. I'm tired of people judging someone based on what they are wearing and saying they should have worn this or that to look better. I will always be short, and I don't have a huge passion for wearing super tall heels all of the time, that is my choice. If I like an outfit, I'm allowed to wear it, whether someone out there thinks its flattering or not.
Instead of tearing each other down, I wish we ladies would build each other up and encourage each other to follow our interests and be ourselves. If anything this small comment reminded me that I too need to help build my fellow woman up. To encourage my lovely friends and ladies out their in the blogosphere to keep working their style.
Just remember don't let negative comments tear you down ladies. Keep doing what you like and ignore the people who just want to tear you down.
