Renegade.


















These are photos of Beth Ditto from BlackBook magazine.
I've been reading about her lately, and her

unapologetic confidence is really refreshing. I don't know about you guys, but sometimes I get hung up on the fact that I don't really fit into the "mold" of beauty. As much as it may be trivial, some days I just feel like nothing looks good and like there is no hope in looking alright. Usually, I get over it and realize how silly I'm being....But it is surprising how many girls feel like this, even other bloggers despite being gorgeous women who inspire others everyday. There needs to be a change, and bloggers gaining recognition in the fashion world is just one step. "Normal" (read: Not 5'11, 120lbs) girls are now being regarded as just as stylish as a celebrity with infinite resources. The future is hopeful...

P.S. A CNN article on the power of bloggers. Intriguing...

I agree with what you're saying! Girls shouldn't have to look like models to be considered pretty/stylish :)

Very good post. I often feel like a loner when all of my favorite bloggers are tall and slender. Sometimes I look at an outfit and think "I could never wear that, I'm not tall and thin." But then I see inspiration like Miss Dito and remember the onlything that matters is how I feel in the clothes that I am wearing! Thanks so much for this wonderful post.
