For the longest period of time, I didn’t care about how I looked, for me, fashion was a thing for the girly girls and I wasn’t one; growing up with three brother definitely did a number on me.
Due to this, most of the clothes I wore were either gifted to me or bought by my mother, even at the age of 16!, yes, I was in the university and I never bought any clothes for myself but, when I got to 18, I realized that I wasn’t a child anyone, I was a WOMAN and that meant I had to look good.
My university days.
At that age, I really wanted to try different things, discover my fashion style but, I wasn’t comfortable with my body and I opted for black clothing because it was said to be flattering to a bigger body.
I spent the longest time wearing black to the point that all my clothes were black, you can even check my threespeaks video, and whenever anyone wanted a “black clothing”, they come to me; crazy right?
My black phase.
Well, years past and I lost the weight, losing weight made me feel comfortable with my body but, I had only black clothing and I was sick of it, my comfort clothes became what made me uncomfortable.
Right now, I have discovered what I love and my fashion sense or style includes two pieces, gowns, crop tops and plain trousers; I especially love that combination, and also, I wear colors that make me look girly.
Currently, I am trying to change my wardrobe and it is the hardest thing ever but, I know one day I will get there.
Now, since we are talking about clothes I love to wear, I feel like we should talk about the ones I wouldn’t wear and they are a lot and if I want to write all I wouldn’t finish but to mention a few, they include, overly revealing clothes, over-covered clothes, neon-colored clothes, short shorts, see-through clothes, etc, these are a few but there are loads more.
Also, for clothes I wish I could wear but can’t, I think the only clothes I’ll love to wear but can’t are short dresses and knickers, the short dresses are because my state is very conservative and I hate the looks people get when they wear them and the knickers are because they always ride up due to my thighs which makes them pretty uncomfortable.
Regardless of all these, I feel like fashion is a way to express ourselves and definitely I won’t be judging anyone for wearing anything because one man’s meat is another man’s reject.
