why feminism is important

Why Feminism is important to me

CN:  Rape, slut-shaming and abuse are some of the topics discussed but not in great detail 

feminism

ˈfɛmɪnɪz(ə)m/

noun

 The advocacy of women’s rights on the ground of the equality of the sexes.

 

I may have mentioned it once or twice, but never really gone into much about why I’m a feminist and why it’s important to me. People often tend to see the topic as ‘taboo’ or really misinterpret what feminism is about. It is not something in which women are “man haters” or feel that the female gender is superior to the male. The female gender has been oppressed for as long as history can remember. Of course, not everyone is aware of the history and often tend to base it on “well, I don’t feel oppressed, my life is great,” or ” I treat women with respect, therefore there is equality,” which is rather closed minded. I can straight away admit that growing up in my life, it was a close-knit family and there was indeed a lot of respect for all genders. However, it’s when I began to finally socialise more, make friends out of my small, caucasian-based community that I began to really see the difference. In the last few years, I’ve made friends from pretty much every walk of life. Non-binary genders, LGBTQA+ community, different races, religions, rich, poor, famous, nobodies and you really begin to learn.

Feminism is important to me. Feminism is important to me because there are so many consequences of being a female. Even if up in my life until I finally stepped foot out into the world I felt extremely privileged, you wake up and see reality. Feminism is important to me because when I or my female friends or family go out, we are told “to be careful” and “don’t walk alone” because there is a fear of being raped. Feminism is important to me because we as a society are teaching women to change how we dress instead of teaching men to not rape. Because approximately 85,000 women and 12,000 men are raped in England and Wales alone every year, meaning there’s roughly 11 rapes (of adults alone) every hour. These figures include assaults by penetration and attempts. And usually, there is very much a lot of victim blaming.

plus-sized

I was so overwhelmed with the response of my first ever ‘Plus Sized Picks’, that I thought I’d do a Christmas special! Here are some fashion picks for my fellow plus sized beauties to rock this festive season…

New Look Curves Dark Grey Christmas Polar Bear T-shirt

new-look-christmas

I just love this top SO much! It’s so cute and festive – something I’d love to wear under my leather jacket with the faux fur trim along with some boots and black jeans. It’s perfect to dress with all sorts of outfit choices as well as just a pair of joggers to lounge around on Christmas Day with.

Available for £9.99

Asos Curve ‘I Only Do Morning’s on the 25th of December’ Christmas Jumper

ASOS Christmas

This jumper is a description of me. I despise mornings, except for Christmas Day where  am eager to get out of bed as early as possible! Another great one for layering and if you have any Christmas Jumper events but want to stand out, this isn’t a bright coloured one but is still festive.

Available for £28.00

Celebrity Bargain Buy: Perrie Edwards

buy perrie edwards bikini

A fair while ago, I used to do a series called ‘Sunday Style Steal’ in which I’d show you how to recreate a celebrity’s outfit. I thought I’d start a similar series but making it a little snappier by showing you some pieces worn by famous faces at a more affordable price compared to the hundreds, if not thousands, usually spent on clothes.

Today I’ve found some pieces worn by Perrie Edwards from Little Mix’s latest music video, ‘Shoutout To My Ex’. These pieces are fairly affordable and since Little Mix are the talk of pop music right now, I thought I’d share with you some affordable items from the video.

Perrie wears a pink bikini for a lot of scenes in the music video while strutting her stuff at the poolside in sunny Spain with her fellow bandmates.

Perrie Edwards Bikini

Believe it or not, the two piece is actually from Boohoo.com for $22 which is around £18. Whether you’re heading off on holidays somewhere sunny or just going for a dip in the pool, this bikini is gorgeous and I’m in love with this shade of pink at the moment.

I hope you like this new series, let me know what you think in the comments below and stay tuned for more ‘Celebrity Bargain Buy’.

Sunday's Style Steal: Leigh-Anne Pinnock

Sunday Style Steal Leigh Anne

Hello again,

Sunday’s Style Steal for this week is the beautiful Leigh-Anne Pinnock from Little Mix. Along with Perrie and Jesy who I have previously focused on, Leigh has a great fashion sense and follows along with a lot of the current trends in the fashion world.

The outfit I am recreating is one from a photoshoot which Leigh posted on Instagram recently.

Leigh outfit

 

 

Leigh-Anne’s plunge crop is from Miss Guided and is available at just £15. Simple yet classy and would work well with trousers, skinny jeans or even a skirt of any length.

Punge Crop

Leigh’s slit trousers are pretty much everywhere these days. Having looked through numerous outfits the past month, side slit trousers are popping up all over the place and Leigh is no exception when it comes to on trend fashion. You can get these trousers from Zara for £25. I personally think they are great for outfits which aren’t too casual nor too formal such as a party or star studded event.

Slit Trousers

Unfortunately, Leigh’s shoes are sold out, so I picked these black mesh panel shoes from New Look which would go great with the outfit and are available for £22.99.

I’ve also found lots of different gold jewellery which, like Leigh-Anne’s choices, would go rather well with the outfit. There’s lots to choose from and enough to cater for different people’s tastes.

I hope you liked this week’s outfit! Let me know in the comments if this is something you’d wear!

Disney Nerd: Sneek Peak of the Disney X Vans 2015 collection

Disney Nerd header

If you haven’t already guessed, I’m a huge fan of Disney. I also really like to wear VANS. So, when I discovered Disney and Vans will be releasing a new line together, I got pretty excited.

Disney and Vans will be collaborating together again to bring a new collection featuring some classic Disney characters and combining them with the classic VANS shoes as well as shirts and accessories, this is one for all the Disnerds out there.

The collection appeals to pretty much everyone with male and female apparel and even sizes for kids and toddlers – show your Disney side in your day to day style or even at the parks!

The collection is expected to be out June this year around VANS stores globally – not long now!

What do you think of the collection? Will you be purchasing anything?

Sunday's Style Steal: Halsey

Sunday Style Steal Halsey

Hey there!

It’s time for another Sunday’s Style Steal! This person, a lot of you may not be aware of this artist but she’s someone that my friends all seem to really love and I think her style is pretty awesome and great to recreate. Halsey is an American music artist from Washington and follows the style of the indie pop genre and was the most talked about person online during South by Southwest (SXSW) 2015.

The outfit I’m focusing on is from an Instagram post of her winning an award recently. I think it’s a great summer look for parties that aren’t formal or just an edgy but simple look to wear out and about.

Halsey

 

 

Halsey’s top is pretty simple and is a ribbed crop cami from Topshop for £6. However, you can get a vest like this from pretty much anywhere and there’s a good chance you already own one!

ribbed crop cami

The main focus on Halsey’s outfit is her bright yellow  pelmet skirt. You can get the exact from Topshop for £36. It’s definitely ideal for summer and bringing out the bold colours but allowing you to wear black if that’s a colour you like to wear a lot. It could make up a numerous amount of skirt-vest outfits for the summer and if you’re daring with your colours, it’s something I’d recommend even if you weren’t trying to recreate this look.

Halsey’s hat is a pork pie hat and is again from Topshop for £18. These hats are nothing new to the world of fashion trends, but is a much loved accessory for both male and female.

Pork Pie Hat

 

 

Halsey wears the Jeffrey Campbell Scully Platforms from Nasty Gal for £98.56 which is a high price for most but are a designer brand. If you’re planning to get your wear out of these shoes, then they’re worth the purchase. Otherwise, I would recommend some wedged boots or any black shoe that best suits you.

Jeffrey Campbells

 

I hope you liked Sunday’s Style Steal for this week! Let me know in the comments your thoughts or if there’s anyone’s style you’d like me to recreate.

Sunday's Style Steal: Perrie Edwards

Sunday's Style Steal Perrie Edwards

Hey, hi and hello!

Sunday’s Style Steal for this week focuses on Little Mix’s Perrie Edwards. Like her band mate, Jesy Nelson – who’s style we focused on a few weeks ago – Perrie is also another fashionista who is idolised by teens and young women across the world. This outfit is what Perrie posted on Instagram about a month ago and I thought it was a nice look to recreate.

Perrie Edwards

 

Perrie’s  ribbed bardot top is from River Island for £18 and is something that definitely seems to be getting popular in the fashion world. This could also easily be paired with some skinny jeans to make a casual look a little more dressed up.

Perrie to

 

Perrie’s trousers are originally from Zara but have now unfortunately sold out. However, I managed to find a similar pair online from modlily.com for £19.50. These trousers are perfect material for the summer keeping you cool and also dress your outfit up a bit.

Perrie trousers

 

Perrie’s gold leaf sandals are from Monsoon for £35 and are perfect footwear for the upcoming summer season which can be worn with many outfit combinations.

 

Sandals

 

Perrie’s handbag is also sold out, but personally I think any black or white bag would work well with this outfit and is a personal choice. You can also get Perrie’s choker here for £3 should you wish to accessorize.

I hope you like the outfit – let me know in the comments below if you would wear it! Don’t forget you can follow me on Twitter, LIKE me on Facebook and follow me on Bloglovin’ – I always follow back!
