So this is a special post because it’s in collaboration with 4 other bloggers.
It’s an effort led by Sheela Goh and I was tickled pink when she asked me to participate in it.
A while ago, Sheela wrote a piece in her blog about the expectations around dressing your age and created this collective project as a follow up to that.
To emphasize that our style is (and should be) independent of our age.
And we’ve all heard this before right?
So then why do so many people give ‘those’ looks?
‘She’s too old for that…’
‘She should know better than to wear that…’
Bitch I do whatever the fuck I want!
And them not being into it doesn’t mean you need to edit.
They’ll adjust just fine.
I’ll wear a g*ddamn prom dress to the grocery store if I want to.
And laugh up a storm with the cashier while I’m at it.
He’ll be offering to carry my bags to the car and I just might let him.
Where we live, what we look like, how many ‘followers’ we have, what we do for a living, who the baby daddy is…
None of that shit matters.
You do what works for you.
Your style is yours.
You know this.
Because we can be the shit at whatever age.
The Sister Act project spotlights women killing it across all age ranges and the theme of todays collaboration was Leather & White.
Each blogger was asked to create a look representative of their personal style with the focus on Leather & White.
And believe me – as much as I wanted to go all out for this post, the Boston weather was like, NOPE.
It actually said, “No bitch, put on a real coat this time.”
But seriously – if you ever wanna feel like the shit, project or not…
If you ever wanna feel like a g*ddamn BOSS, put on some leather and white.
Now let’s get into it, shall we?
