WILD THINGS

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

Top: Palace Skateboards, Shorts: Zara, Outerwear: Brandy Melville, Socks: Lazy Oaf, Shoes: Adidas



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






Love,


M.x

  2. Love this casual street look; the comment about the 3 perverted men made me lol! It's truly such a bummer that women gets objectified through the eyes of men (and the world, actually) but we only get one life on this Earth, live it as you will.

  15. Lovely reflection on feminism! Never should a limitation be defined by gender, it's complete absurd. Women are as capable as men to rule the society and so we shall! Xx

  21. So much creativity on this blog! I love it! Yes some countries are less open minded than others concerning women's rights and the culture toward women. I'm French but I live in India and I realized what is discrimination against women in India! In France stuff happen too but not like in India. I believe you have to be stronger in those countries because nothing is given easy for women. You're a perfect example of a strong young lady who's marching to the beat of your own drum! Kudos to you!

    Have a great weekend, xo

  30. Those 3 men are absolutely old fashioned perverts! How discusting of them! Us ladies can wear what we want for OURSELVES, not for anyone else! You look great- I really like the plaid with the tee dress

  31. Love this post! We as women need to stop being afraid of our sexuality or shame other women for being comfortable in our bodies. We should not be afraid of what others think, especially men. Men will learn, but we have to own ourselves first.

  33. First off, Love your outfit! You exude cool. Second, SLAP THOSE MEN. UGH. I am a feminist, and I believe we should wear what we choose, no matter if it's covering up and not covering up. Your choice. Unfortunately, I live in a place that does not share the same values.
