Some awesome bloggers have created a #365FeministSelfie project, and I'm way too lazy to look up the whole concept, but it seems to be about real life, no-fuss, no-filter selfies, being okay with yourself.
Some blogs that I follow have participated in Mom-version called:
Who are YOU wearing?
Link up here to join in! In parody of all the pomp and glam associated with the entire day of any awards show, moms are sharing selfies of their daily grind-glam. It's a good idea to fight the ridiculous, unrealistic, shiny-magazine overly airbrushed, plastic look of Fantasy people and tell ourselves looking like REAL PEOPLE is okay. I'm all about that 'okay with yourself' life.
At the risk of making myself look silly, yet again, I'll take one for the team and support this concept. This is my current favorite selfie.
I'm wearing perm rods, by NoIdeaWhoDesignsTheseTheyWereMadeInThe70's and a purple towel and cape from my friend's salon, The Lee Alan Salon.
I get my hair permed once a year because:
I miss the 80's, it's never too soon for retro, and it makes my difficult hair ready-to-go.
Under the cape I'm wearing ComfyWear:
Shirt by Lane Bryant, as they seem to be the only place that makes shirts to fit real women with real lady lumps.
Pants by by whatever designer had clothes in plus sizes at the Goodwill the day I needed pants. Sometimes this is actually from the men's section, if I can't fit into anything in the women's.
PRO-TIP: Some men's pants are extremely comfy.
I shop by price first (always 2nd hand,) because it's more important for me to be home with my children than have things like designer clothes, which go out of style BEFORE you even buy them according to the fashion industry.
I'm sure my Comfy look will be all the rage as soon as this look hits the magazines.
I can't wait to hear what Joan Rivers has to say about this look.
