Hey, white people (like us) wearing dreadlocks is actually really very racist, and the first model in that most recent post of yours is sporting a massive head full of them, you should take that post down
I’d love to hear some other people chime in on this issue. This particular model is from the Polish company ‘Ewa Michalak’ and always, always has dreads. It’s been my policy vis-a-vis this model that it doesn’t seem part of a general black-appropriate look, so I was under the impression that the dreads themselves were not offensive. If, however, I hear from some people who find the fact that she is white & has dreads upsetting and disturbing, I will be happy to take them down! I wasn’t aware of this & I would like to be as respectful as possible.
Edit: I changed the image in the original post & took down the tumblr post (I couldn’t edit it bc I didn’t make it). Some people said that it DID bother them but they didn’t want to bring it up— of course, you’re under no obligation to, but if something does seem offensive that I post, please bring it up! I’ll definitely try to listen and figure out if this is an issue other readers of mine are having. In this instance, I wanted to hear from actual POC before taking any action because it was something I had heard diverse responses on previously.
I want to start off by saying that I love your blog!! As a queer, I love how you relate queerness and sexuality to lingerie. I would like to ask you for some advice. I would really like to buy luxurious lingerie, but I'm not comfortable yet with my body. I have lost 20 pounds so far and would like to lose another few pounds. And even if I did start looking into buying luxury lingerie, I wouldn't know where to start.
Firstly, thank you so much! Secondly, I totally relate to your issue of wanting beautiful things, but going through a body change that makes it hard to know whether to buy or not.
If you’re going through weight loss, I would probably start out with a robe or a slip— both pieces that are wearable even if you lose some more weight, but also make you look + feel stunning right away. Right now, I’m lusting after lace slips from Angela Friedman and robes from Ayten Gasson + Harlow and Fox. Journelle also has a pretty great sale going on in their loungewear department!
If you have a specific budget and size I can give you more suggestions! These are just the ones that came to me off the top of my head.
Is it true that Victoria secrets is trans friendly and trained?
I’m really sorry, but I don’t know the answer to this question! I searched around and saw a few people who had positive experiences at Victoria’s Secret, but I don’t know if they can speak for all Victoria’s Secrets everywhere. If anyone has had a positive or negative experience and wants to chime in, please do!
I wish I had a good answer for you! I am currently struggling to find a strapless bra that makes me happy, but when I do, I will definitely write about it all the trials and tribulations I am currently going through. Some of it comes from my particular body of course, but it’s very frustrating to not have anything particularly great right now!
