To The People Telling Women What We Are allowed To Wear, Please Just Stop

I will wear whatever comfy clothes I want to class and continue to not care what you think.


Recently, I read an article talking about college girls and what they should and shouldn't wear.

Let me just say, every word in that article is total nonsense.

To start, it is completely directed at women, but why exactly is it only a problem when women wear Nike shorts and a t-shirt to class? Is this just another rule men seem to be exempt from?

Overall, I don't think it's anyone's business what another person is wearing regardless of gender, I just wanted to point out that the writer of this article who is in fact female, directly put down other women just for the fact that they are confident enough to wear what they want instead of what they are always told to wear.

If I want to wake up 10 minutes before class and go in sweats and a messy bun, guess what? I'm gonna do that. I had my share of the dress code in high school so I will definitely take advantage of my ability to wear sweats now that I can. I'm not paying thousands of dollars to be a model in a fashion show, I'm paying for an education.

To me, and I'm sure many others, the amount of information and skills my brain is able to obtain is not affected by how fancy my outfit is. If anything, the comfier clothing would help me more because I wouldn't be thinking about how uncomfortable the skinny jeans I have on are.

I would just be sitting in class, taking notes, minding my own business, and not worrying what those around me look like.

So to my fellow writer who believes it is her responsibility to tell other women like me what is and isn't appropriate to wear, please mind your own business because it is my body and therefore my choice and I am happy to be a very comfortably dressed and successful college student who knows how to get fancy once in a while if it is necessary.

5 Of The Worst 2019 Grammys Looks

A star isn't born looking like this


This past weekend we experienced the 2019 Grammys which in my case was pretty great. The performances blew me away, I only found myself bored a few times, and some of the fashion was incredible. Some of the fashion though didn't cut it for me. Here are some of the absolute worst dressed from the 2019 Grammys.

1. Anna Kendrick

It’s really awful #GRAMMYs

A post shared by Anna Kendrick (@annakendrick47) on

Ann Kendrick walked up on the Grammy stage and I audibly gasped. It looked as if a pink bird was shredded and bejeweled to make her dress. I really don't understand this and Anna Kendrick could do so much better.

2. Charlie Puth

Charlie at Grammy!😍 • [@charlieputh ]

Now don't get me wrong, I love Charlie Puth just as much as the next guy, but this Grammys ootd wasn't cutting it. In this brown suit and bright red flamenco shirt, he looks as if he is some old retiree trying to dress up for the first time in sixty-three years so he puts this on. I am not impressed and a little disappointed in the incredibly talented Charlie Puth.

3.Tayla Parx

You actually can't wear your converse with your GRAMMY DRESS. The dress already looks like one of those DIY fabric rugs that your stepmother made you for Christmas and then she goes and adds the CONVERSE. Ugh. Sorry Tayla, this just didn't work for me.

4. Rashida Jones

Rashida, you are going to the Grammys not your baby shower! This baggy dress literally looks like it could be her maternity dress. From the sagging stomach area, which I know she doesn't have, to the non-existing top, this dull navy washes her out and makes her look flat as a pancake.

5. Katy Perry

I saved the worst for last. What's up with all these horrible dresses being pink? This dress literally looks like there's a hula hoop underneath this packing peanut skirt with a tin foil top. Baby, you're not a firework tonight.

The 2019 Grammys was definitely one to remembers, but the outfits were to forget.
