Inspiration: strong women

Vika Gazinskaya

Fendi 2 Jours large

Siren Pillow


Cage Bikini

Sylvia Plath
typewriter's dress (Katrantzou)

Stong women have been present throughout history: The seductive Sirens, the muses of paintings, the girl with stand-out style on the streets, the writress who wasn't afraid to verbalise her 'madness', or the designer who creates typewriter's dresses.

There shouldn't be a compromise: we can be sensual and strong at the same time, like the sirens. We can listen to what society tells us to do, but still have our own mind. Blogging helps women around the world to connect and to share their strenghts, and sometimes by sharing their weaknesses they can be strong too.

That was my bit of friday feminism/women-peptalk: I hope you all have a fantastic weekend!

  7. Hele leuke inspiratie post! <3

    Mag ik je om een gunst vragen? Ik doe mee aan een fashion battle die ik echt super graag wilt winnen. Zou je AUB op mij willen stemmen? dat zou ik waarderen. Het zijn 5 links, maar op mij blog worden ze allemaal weergegeven. Het is echt maar 5 seconde werk en dan help je een medeblogeer uit de brand :). Daarnaast geeft ik ook 2 kaartjes weg voor het event Webshop Till You Drop.
