We have all heard of TMI but I am now officially using this abbreviation called TMB – Too Much Boob! I’m not a conservative person and am rather progressive in my thinking. In fact, I really do believe you should wear whatever the heck you want to. Having said that, I’m struggling to appreciate the style sense of many stylists/ fashionistas/ bloggers/ (whatever the new profession in the online fashion space is!). And, I mean no offence. Truly. In fact, I’m all about uplifting and empowering, etc… but that doesn’t mean I can’t have an opinion or sense of humor right?
So here’s my “Weekly Laugh” where I’m laughing my guts out with my girls lookin’ at ‘em boobs.
Every time I go out, I see so many people who look like cookie cutter images of each other. So what makes them look alike you wonder? Oh no, they are not zombies from some sci-fi show. They are just some bodies in some kind of a “boob- show”. There, I said it. It’s harsh but the truth always is. Btw, I have done a private survey to see if other people agree- and they do. So who are these bodies (umm.. ya that’s what I’m calling it finally. Coz if I use the “W” word, there’s a storm coming my way that will thrash in the name of “feminism.”
These bodies are all wearing bralettes (or just bras), crop tops (that are no more than bras) paired with high-waisted jeans, skirts ,shorts, etc (The shorter the better). What’s next? They all have the same hair colour- literally the same brown/golden/ burgundy-ish highlights. And then the same red lips. And to top it off, they all wear very similar looking shoes- cheap stilettos that scream, ‘Look at me, I’m right here!’ But really- none of it is wrong in any way… I just wonder and I really do wonder- since when did fashion become a victim itself. You know what I mean? Where is that- I am me… I will wear my mood today… I will be classy… I will own it (and own it doesn’t always mean- having your boobs all hanging out). This might sound like a rant to you (because it is. Lol!) But do me a favor and really look through all the instagram fashion bloggers’ pages today… doesn’t matter where from. You’ll see what I’m saying.
Of course, there are some pages that I truly love and some of them are doing a fab job like @masoonminawala, @diipakhosla to name a few. But then there are ones, which I follow simply as an OH: Occupational Hazard!
By the way, one day I said to myself- I’m going to wear what they are wearing just to kind of “step in their shoes” for a moment. And…. I failed! Miserably. Maybe because, TMB is not my thing and I really was disgusted by the idea of having my boobs talk to people rather than my fabulous personality. Phew! What a waste of an exercise. Not entirely, though! I got a post out of it. And here’s what I was wearing when I wrote this 😉
