Today I was told I shouldn’t get a sweater dress because “horizontal stripes don’t really work on all body types,” according to the salesgirl at H&M (which, by the by, doesn’t really carry my size).
You know, for years I just accepted that rule. Big girls can’t wear horizontal stripes; everyone knows that. And then, one day, I realized:
That’s a dumb fucking rule.
ETA: For the record, Kaye, you are freakin’ awesome, and gorgeous, and I also you’ve made me really want a sweater dress. I’m torn between hoping you bought that one, and hoping you didn’t give the salesgirl the satisfaction of the commission. (Do salespeople at H&M even work on commission? IDK, but the point still stands.)
I did not by that stupid dress. It was itchy as all hell anyway. I went to Torrid and got skinny jeans instead. #boom
