Disclaimer: I received this sweatshirt from Everyday Unicorns as a part of their Ambassador program, but all opinions are my own.
The most important message I can deliver is that this is THE. SOFTEST. SWEATSHIRT. EVER! No, seriously. I bought more sweatshirts this week– still not as soft as this Fierce Feminist sweatshirt from Everyday Unicorns (btw, they’ll be having FIRE Black Friday sales, don’t miss out). I’m really trying to add more color to my wardrobe since fall colors tend to be drab and monotonous, and this blue is so vibrant! Oh, and the best part is that it’s sweatshop-free and ethically made! And you know what else? You get to tell the world that you’re a feminist. You know, something that frankly EVERYBODY should be.

It’s weird because if you told me about five years ago that I’d be so vocal about my opinions down the road, I’d think you were crazy. I originally started out so neutral and silent on issues when it came to my blog since I didn’t want to make anybody uncomfortable. I didn’t think a fashion blog was a place for social and political issues. However, I reached a point where I couldn’t stay quiet any longer. It’s a little ridiculous but also necessary that we constantly say “hey I’m FOR equality” and it’s slightly sickening to see how many people still don’t believe it. I seriously start feeling nauseous knowing that there are people out there who do not consider me an equal because of what’s in between my legs or the color of my skin. Earlier this year, I took a bold step in attending the Women’s March. By myself. I’m usually not one to do things solo since I get a lot of anxiety, but I was fully capable of attending– I had no reason to stay home, and I knew fully well that I would regret it if I didn’t go. So I went. I saw the amount of people who attended, the kind of people they were, and how I felt absolutely safe knowing that every single person out there was fighting for the same thing. I got so overwhelmed with emotions that I started crying. I then joined the fight, made some new friends with women who went solo JUST LIKE I DID (Hi, Simone!), and restored my faith in humanity. I then started to attend more protests after seeing the power it holds. I’m happy to say that I have a new protest sweatshirt, and it won’t retire until we finally progress and run out of reasons to fight back.
