Turn off your television and go outside.

Mary, 23, carpet designer by day. This blog is an attempt to organize, delineate, and rationalize my aesthetic so I can better translate it into my own work.

“ You don’t have to be pretty. You don’t owe prettiness to anyone. Not to your boyfriend/spouse/partner, not to your co-workers, especially not to random men on the street. You don’t owe it to your mother, you don’t owe it to your children, you don’t owe it to civilization in general. Prettiness is not a rent you pay for occupying a space marked “female”. ”

Erin (from A Dress A Day)

I wish someone would have told me this when I was younger.
