What Does Copying Mean in 2019?

GIRL IN COUTURE

We all hate to be copied. Nothing sucks more than having an original idea you came up being taken and used by someone else. I have gone through that and I sure plenty of other people have too. But when original ideas are scarce, what does copying even mean anymore?

Earlier this year, instagram models Cindy Kimberly and Iris Law had a feud over an apparent photo copy.

On August 11th, 2018 Iris posted a photo of her in white sheets sleeping. Six months later, Cindy posted a similar photo to Iris that showed her sleeping on white sheets. Instantly, Cindy got comments saying she copied Iris. (Apparently, Iris said this too but I can’t find the screenshots for it. I’m just going to assume she did. If anyone has the screenshots please dm me.)

“I like curvy women!”

No, you like women with big boobs, small waists and peachy bums. You like the right kind of curves.

The hourglass figure has been held on the highest pedestal of beauty for as many years as I can remember. Growing up around the time that I did, big bodies weren’t really represented, at least not how they are today. It was all about the Kate Mosses and Victoria Beckhams and, if you didn’t stand a chance of looking like them, the hourglass was what you aspired to be.

There’s no denying a bodacious hourglass figure is a beautiful sight to behold, and I have absolutely no intention of saying otherwise. I’m not here to detract from any body type. But what about the rest of us curvy women?

For years people used Marilyn Monroe as the poster girl for fuller figures. She was, of course, a…

Spring Outfits, travel, Vacation Clothes

I know I’ve already posted about what I was planning on wearing to Mexico but I wanted you to see them in context! And I’ll take any reason to reminisce about this amazing trip.

I’ve found that what you plan on wearing on a trip may not alway be what you end up packing so I wanted to share what actually made it in my suitcase.

Let’s begin with what I wore to jumpstart this trip!

Processed With Darkroom

I like to keep it casual and hella comfortable when traveling. IDK about you but I have a TON of flight anxiety and this pair of black yoga pants is my comfort blanket. It was cold in Charleston, SC and I’m still not sure if you dress how the weather is where you are or how it is where you end up. To compromise, I had a short sleeve t-shirt underneath for when we…

Nail Color Affects Your Mood?

Fun, Lifestyle, Other

Simply Jamilah

Warning: We are about to get up close and personal with my hands.

All of summer 2018, I wore the same mauve pink color on my fingernails because it complimented my skin tone and nail shape well, if that makes sense. About a month and a half into the fall semester, I decided to shake things up a bit and paint my fingernails red. When I did that, I felt different. I felt like a girl boss, like I could dominate anything and everything. It was weird, but it sparked an idea– this experiment. Maybe this is just me, but I think the color of your nails affects the way you feel; kind of like when some people see yellow, they feel happy while others might be traumatized (surprisingly enough, I know someone who is traumatized by the color yellow).

RUN DOWN OF THE EXPERIMENT: For about seventeen weeks, I…

The Graduate Perspective

Outfit1_2Pinterest is one of my favorite social media platforms, because there are beautiful images and tons of inspiration for everything from DIY crafts to fashion. It is a great place to create a collection of things that inspire you especially in the wardrobe department. Working in a university research lab, means two things, that I don’t have to wear business formal clothing and that my attire has to follow lab safety standards. The general guidelines include closed-toe shoes, long pants, and no loose sleeves. However, in the past I found it a little tricky to translate style of influencers and fashion bloggers into practical everyday outfits for my life as a scientist. For this blog post, I was inspired to do a “Week of Wear” test to recreate outfits from Pinterest for a whole work week and observe how they translate to a life of a scientist.

I tried to replicate…
