Do you remember when Mischa Barton was dragged through the mud for HAVING CELLULITE?
Or when Jessica Simpson was mocked for being ‘pudgy’?
Or when magazines would fill their pages with ‘who is thin and who is TOO THIN’?
Because I do.
In researching for this, I learned that Nicole Richie was tricked onto a hidden scale while on air.
And that Beyoncé was praised for rapidly losing 20kg on a cayenne-fuelled master cleanse.
I learned that Lizzy Mcguire and Raven Symone were considered chubby. And that 13-year-old singer JoJo was given shots to stop her appetite.
I learned where some of my image hang ups came from.
And I’m so sorry I didn’t know then what I know now:
That a woman’s body is not there for judgements.
That weight should never be mocked, especially in a public forum.
And that any media which makes SHAME a selling point, doesn’t have a place in my home.

now time for a rambled + honest caption: we don’t know if many of you who shop with us will see this post, but we are not sure about which direction to take our shop in next year. we’re thinking a website, or a break, maybe depop or no depop, maybe only doing style bundles - maybe not really selling at all! this may be the last time to shop our secondhand + dead stock goodies for a while! 💙 let us know if there’s anything you wanna see from us! oh, p.s. orders within aus get free postage on bundles 😘
