A love story…

 

As with most things that are worth anyone’s time, I came across this video on tumblr. Since then I’ve shared it multiple times with both men and women. This girl is hilarious and spot on. It’s very tongue-in-cheek, but it’s a snark back to all those stupid articles floating around the net talking about the top beauty trends men hate that women wear. Guess what? We don’t care!

I just bought myself a great pair of high-waisted jeans. Do they look like mom jeans? Probably so! Do I care? Absolutely not! They fit magnificently and highlight my best assets and that’s pretty much all I care about. Comfort and cuteness levels, maximum achieved.

Since  publishing this video, she’s had to come back and edit and add a disclaimer which shows how touchy this subject is, which seems a little ridiculous, but people are so sensitive when it comes to pointing out how absurd it is to tell women what they should do in order to attract the attention of men. How dare she.
