This is your friendly reminder to wear whatever the heck you want to wear and to not let the fear of what others might think guilt you out of it. I stayed away from the mom jean trend for a while because I was nervous that it wouldn’t hide my tummy... well news flash I have a tummy, always have and probably always will, so why should I care so much about camouflaging my body shape? We are constantly spoon fed the idea that there’s a right and wrong way to have body and I’m not buying it. There’s no wrong way to have a body. My body might not be what media and society celebrate but I’m so grateful for all the amazing things it can do that I take for granted every day. So I’m gonna love it and dress it in the things that exude that love rather than wasting my energy hating on it because it’s not the same as someone else’s. 📷: @olivialscholes
Omgosh team, I don't ever want to wish summer away. But I am looking forward to wearing this and it will need colder temperatures...
I started this beauty over Xmas and finally got the zip this week to finish it off. It just needs to be pressed but I couldn't wait for that to share.
Outer Fabric is embroidered and sequined silk from @drapersfabrics - isn't it spectacular? Lining is the leftovers from an earlier project - originally bought from @theremnantwarehouse. Pattern is #bobbibomberjacket from @stylearc. Excellent pattern. The only mods I made were no pockets because I didn't want to ruin the pattern effect. I also didn't do the zipper facings. That was because I couldn't deal with the cognitive load of finding a third more suitable fabric.
Now the question is, do I need to make a special outfit to go with the jacket?
There is so much viral violence towards black women lately so I wanna be another voice talking about how to take care in this world today.⠀

My love has abandonment issues. <3
My love hates sleeping alone.
My love, a clenched fist around your
heart; yes, my love is that terrifying
because it doesn’t know release.
Imagine the moon, how she sets the ocean
free to spill over distant shorelines only to
clutch it back to her chest again and again.
We call this ‘tide’.
We call it ‘gravitational pull’.
My love is like that —
Except they don’t write scientific theories
around my love; this swelling in my chest
is too big to be understood.
Big enough to have its own gravity
and some nights, even strong enough
to pull you back into my arms.”
