05 Aug Who picks your clothes? Stevie Wonder?
Just so you know: I love food. But like any other – ok almost any other- human on this planet, I also want a nice figure. People always pretend that its either the one or the other, but I don’t agree. Having a good figure in my eyes doesn’t necessarily mean wearing a size 4 (or a size 2, but lets be honest what living breathing and eating creature on earth honestly has a size 0?!).
It’s about looking good in what you wear (ok, I admit, bikini’s are a different story). That makes the lifelesson of the day very simple: Wear the size you need, walk proudly on the street.[separator type=’transparent’ color=” thickness=’5′ up=’5′ down=’5′]
*The voice in my head says: make your point!

Ok, so the point is: I have developed an allergy for people who do not dress to fit their figures. Like I said, I like food and I absolutely do not wear a size 4, not even a 6 or an 8, and I can appreciate people with a little fat here and there more than you know, BUT! Hold your horses! Breasts that are completely squashed in a dress, belly’s accentuated by that a little to tight t-shirt or trousers that are so tight they could easily pass for a straitjacket (or should I say staittrouser). People, THIS IS NOT OK![separator type=’transparent’ color=” thickness=’5′ up=’5′ down=’5′]
I, for example, am very focussed on dressing to compliment my figure. Imagine my body unleashing allergies for some stranger. I wouldn’t want to be responsible for that. Anyways, a little compliment to myself, I think I generally do pretty well. Sometimes I’m in doubt about short dresses and shorts where my very (read VERY) muscular Hercules legs pop out of, but concidering these dilemmas only arise on tropical days (almost never), they don’t take place that often.

At one point, feeling totally comfortable in my maxiskirt and loose t-shirt, we recieved a message from Carla. She bought presents for the whole Carlala-team. YES! Because we love presents. Carla bought us dresses. I quote: ‘I bought really cute football dresses for us, their brilliant!’ Seeing the photo’s I was in shock for a second. Lets throw our staitjacket principles overboard. During the worldcup I’m representing the very tight staitjacket-like dress![separator type=’transparent’ color=” thickness=’5′ up=’5′ down=’5′]
Ps. Just to be clear: that size 4 on the photo is born-with-this-body-Carla. Not me!!
