Yesterday’s post “Belly Button Shame” turned out to be very controversial and I truly appreciate all your wonderful comments. Today in a continuation with the body image topic, I decided to share with you this, a bit provoking outfit that shows—oh no!—my belly cleavage. Think about it as my personal protest against the standards that our society creates for women.
On a more serious note, this post features one of the pieces of clothing that was bought on the go from the unknown Garment District retailer and it was truly beloved afterwards. I was cold and didn’t have a scarf or a jacket with me, so I stopped by at a random store and purchased this multicolored jacket. Within a couple of days after settling down in my wardrobe, the piece received the name “pixel jacket” and is currently known under the same title.
The story of my “protest dress” is also shrouded in mystery because I can’t recall exactly when and where I purchased it. I’ve already wrote about my bad habit of removing tags from clothing, and this little black dress is one of the victims of my fashion negligence. The dress looks like a co-ordinate and actually it is very versatile.
I have worn it many times in combination with different kinds of accessories and shoes, and I notice that I feel super confident about myself while wearing it. In my opinion, you cannot wear a dress like that if you are not 100% comfortable, and since this one is my ready-to-go choice, I am wearing it when I need some extra courage.

I wonder if you have any pieces in your wardrobe that you pull out of the closet when you need to look and feel your best? Perhaps, you own a pair of perfect jeans or a dress that highlights your beautiful figure? I would like you to share stories about your #bodyproud outfits with StyleSprinter readers and perhaps provide photos of you wearing these pieces of clothing.
