I would like to share my deepest gratitude for 3 perverted (sadly) adult men who thought I wasn't wearing any pants when this shoot was taken. Seriously my biggest inspiration for this time's outfit post.
A rather laid-back outfit. I'm obsessed with oversized t-shirts since forever; I mean who doesn't, and just in time my sister got this to-die-for Palace Skateboards tee. #classic Not gonna lie, I'm planning to wear it for 100000x without feeling guilty. On a more important note, I prepared this post to spread out some thoughts. So without a further ado, if you are a feminist, aspiring to be, or never heard the word, scroll down..x

Growing up, I am extremely lucky to be brought by a family whom never forbid me to work my ass off, or get knowledge. On the other hand, it is my mom who always taught me that while yes, it is okay to depend on my future husband, it's also important to establish myself.
Little did my mom know, she has been shaping me with all these feminism theory since I was young. Though I never truly understand the concept, it was Beyonce's "2014 MTV Video Music Awards "Flawless" performance that opened my eyes. YAS QUEEN BEE! Literally gave me shivers all over the place. Then I kinda had this realisation of how women often gets taken for granted, or underestimated.
"Oh no, you can't work here, there's a lot of heavy stuff to carry, bet your small ass you can't handle it." "Why do you want to get a Master degree? For Christ sake, if you're too smart, men will be afraid of you." "No don't be a doctor, you'll rot in college and never get married!!!!!" Wages, job opportunities, et cetera et cetera.
Another example are dress codes. As you can see, some of the sayings in these photos are taken from Beyonce's Flawless lyrics, while the other one is from a quote I stumbled across in Pinterest. So why are dress codes even created in the first place? Why do we even have to fear men just because we're showing skins?
I'm dying to live in a place where I can wear whatever I want, no matter how much skins I exposed, and still feeling completely secure. And get this straight, women need more respect, and equality.
Therefore I'm dedicating this post to all women who oftentimes went through this kind of stuff yet still kicks ass errrday. You, my friend, are an inspiration. x
