Style+Stereotypes

I was turned on to the Minneapolis-based blog, alreadypretty.com, by a friend who has an upcoming style session with the author, Sally. I've really been enjoying the blog, but today's guest post from writer and vintage clothing enthusiast Andrea Eames was a good one. We always hear that we are judged, whether or not we like it, based upon our appearance. We usually take this to mean that we will be judged negatively if we don't put effort into our appearance, but what happens when we are judged for actually putting forth a lot of effort? I think this quote sums it up nicely: 
"I found that, almost exclusively, vintage and style bloggers are strong, thinking women who use clothing as just one more way in which to express that strength and those thoughts."


Since I've been struggling with preemptive fears of judgery, this post was a great reminder to say eff the critics.
