Today is one of those days where you can only tell someone off with a bangin’ outfit! Three days ago, I decided to wear a cropped denim top, a leather pencil skirt, and my leopard pumps. When I left the house, I was totally feeling myself. No one could tell me nothing. For once, my feet weren’t barking, my shapewear wasn’t rolling up, and my butt looked perfect. When I got to the club, I received a few of compliments and some even in the form of drinks. All the sudden, a man walks up to me and says; “You are such a beautiful girl. You shouldn’t wear such ill-fitting clothes.” (Broke Club Goer that more than likely was going to ask me to buy him a drink)
Boy, do I look like your baby-momma? Do I look like I came to the club to put up with your unwarranted opinions? But before I could verbally communicate anything that was going on in my head, I decided to answer him with this blog post. I gave him my blog card, and I told him to follow me. He was confused by my response, but he said assured me that he would. So instead of cursing out, I am posting pictures of that exact same outfit in the hopes that he gets my message IDGAF :).
My girlfriend told me, “Why are you taking it the nth degree based off of his opinion? It’s quite simple: I loved the outfit and more than likely I was going to shoot in it. And two, I wear what I want, and it’s time more women start feeling that way too. I know we get these comments all the time. The whole “do’s and donts’ of fashion” but just because my FUPA was hanging low in my skirt or my crop top showed a little more cleavage than you are comfortable with, don’t come for my life. He singled me out around three of my girlfriends–all who are under a size 10. He didn’t say anything about their bodycons, mini skirts, etc, he singled me out. People are going to hate…that’s fine. Just keep doing you because you can’t please em’ all.
Top: JCPenney (sold out, but here’s a similar top)

*Style Notes*- I wear a size 20 for the top, size 22w for the bottom*
What do guys think? If you are feeling leather pencil skirt trend? Please go for it and don’t let anyone tell you that it’s ill-fitting.
