Gerd had a talk last week and he said that blogs shouldn't have ranty posts in them. Do you agree with him? Well, whether you do or not, this outfit post is going to be a ranty post. I'm a rebel like that. :p
Let me start by asking you a question: are you happy with how you look?
It amazes me how many girls hate the way that they look. Every day, I read some gorgeous girl tweet about how fat she feels or I talk to a friend who complains about her "big legs". Heck, I even read tweets from guys who complain about how bad their eyebags have become or that they're "too skinny".
To be honest, I'm not happy with how I look, either. I don't like how my ears are so... Dumbo. I don't like my bipolar skin. I hate how my stomach feels and acts like jello most of the time and how my hair gets really oily after just one day of no-shampoo-ing. I hate the fact that I bit my nails as a kid and that my teeth aren't as straight as they were right after I had my braces removed and having no boobs and - breeeeeathe. I could go on and on and on here, but I won't.
Let me bore you with an outfit post instead. Here's what I wore to the Surf aromatherapy fabric conditioner launch a few months ago:
silver starfish cuff bracelet from Blue Vanilla
black and white striped bandage skirt from Forever 21
black boots from CeCe
black fedora hat from Bangkok
studded wolf top from Copper
Like I said earlier, I'm not happy with how I look, but I deal with it. How? I just look in the mirror and I tell myself I look alright. I think I look alright. I think, therefore I am. For some added confidence, I just give myself a lil boost with the clothes and the makeup that I wear.
I know it's easier said than done, but learn to love yourself. I'm not happy with how I look, but this is how God made me, so this is how I'll be. :) Besides, who would I be if I didn't look the way I did? (I know that was a rhetorical question, but I'd like to think I'd be Taylor Momsen... :p)
So, how do you deal with your insecurities? Tips are always welcome! :)
