As I mentioned in a post earlier this week, sometimes what you wanna wear doesn’t flatter your figure in traditional ways. This cocoon cardigan is huge and bulky and eats my entire midsection and I just plain don’t care. It’s absolutely perfect for a slightly cool spring day, has an incredibly pleasing heaviness to it, and makes me feel happy. And so I wear it. The end.

I still haven’t nailed the dress-with-sneakers look, but Cher certainly has.

Not for everyone and features many photos of very fit women, but an interesting post that seeks to remind us all that there is no “perfect” body and even women who appear wrinkle- and cellulite-free usually have a few dimples, rolls, or other so-called “flaws” that they simply know how to downplay with poses and camera angles. And that nearly all of us have body insecurities.
