Growing up I wanted to be one of the boys. I spent the afternoon playing sports and I followed my brother everywhere. Hitting puberty was hard and I didn’t look like all the girls, instead of playing dress up and putting on makeup I spent the afternoon playing games ( I had a Sega and played sonic the hedgehog everyday)It was tough growing up and I never had interest in guys as I felt I would have to give up all the things that I enjoyed. So there I was this awkward tomboy who loved fashion and sat reading Vogue but never thought I would ever be like those models in the magazine ( I am still not like that hahaha)
But whats wrong with embracing your femininity ? I was always told that being a feminist was a bad thing. When someone would say “I am a feminist” I swear it was like a dirty word. It took me a good few years to finally understand what being a feminist was. I may not share the same views as some extremists as I believe in equal rights for all but I do believe in female empowerment.
Whilst on holiday I decided to go shopping with my mom and again that woman can shop. I watched and admired her as she tried on clothing and I found myself asking her ” isn’t that too short?” most of the time it’s really short but I loved my moms response and she would say “No I’m not going to wear something I dont feel good or look good in” …touche. I browsed and spotted this see through top and thought this would be perfect to wear underneath something.
I forgot about this top but when I was invited to a high tea I thought meh let’s wear something more risqué. My advice for wearing sheer tops and pants would be make sure that the undergarments are fitted.
Don’t be afraid of showing off some skin (done tastefully of course) and embrace your femininity.
