These Photos Prove that Not Everyone Is About the Big Booty Life

Everybody wants a big booty, right? Well, next time you are with your big booty bestie, just ask him or her what it’s really like to be forced to endure a life of too-big-for-you clothes and panting men when all you want is to take a little walk around the block. A big booty, to some, is a dream come true. To people with the big booty it is more of a curse than a blessing. Here’s why having a big booty might likely make you more miserable than you might think.

It’s almost impossible to find a perfect #OOTD unless it’s a maxi dress.

Why is no one addressing this problem in the fashion world? Someone needs to take up the torch and create a line of clothing that takes big booties into account. There should be no reason that a person can’t have the perfect outfit every day just because their butt is too big. It is a disgrace that this is not being addressed in the highest levels of the fashion community. Where are you, Nina Garcia?

All your shorts and pants are a couple sizes bigger just so they fit over your butt.

But then you have this weird gap and it makes the pants scrunch up when you put your belt on. It is definitely one of the most frustrating experiences any person could imagine. Like, I just want pants that fit me like a glove. Why are we so against curvy people having appropriate clothing to cover their bodies.

Talk about a frustrating moment. Nothing is more embarrassing, or funnier, than trying to bust a move at a carne asada then spending the rest of the day with a pair of pants or shorts with a major tear right down the ass. Like, why? How do you people not always have ripped pants? I can barely climb a flight of stairs without my pants giving out and turning into leg warmers.

Skirts always look like a mullet for your hips.

Business in the front, party in the back. It’s almost like people making clothes don’t think about what the human body actually looks like. Or, at the very least, what the body of healthy and normal human beings look like. If we could all be stick thin models with no hips or curves, this would be great. Alas, that is not our situation.

Your big booty has a habit of showing you all the worst in society.

Speaking of those pesky skirts. Who else has to pretend their skirt is a tube top when putting them on because there is no way that little piece of fabric is going to stretch enough to fit over your booty. No matter how much you suck it in, your booty is not going anywhere. The only option is throwing it over your head and sliding down and into place. Talk about a tedious and unnecessary start to the day.

Your morning workout is getting your jeans on.

We all know the process here. You find the jeans that you want to wear and they are determined to make you change your mind. You slide them up to your thigh and then they slow down instantly. You try the wiggle dance and maybe even jumping hoping that gravity can lend a hand to your battle of the denim.

Eventually, you lie down on the bed with your legs in the air and pull down with all of your might while sweat starts to break out on your forehead and your grunt with frustration and determination. Then, like magic, they slide right over your butt and you are in the jeans. Nothing good comes easy, and for some, that means wearing their favorite jeans.

Even your leggings have a way of betraying you.

Is nothing holy anymore?!?! I just need to get dressed for my yoga class. I don’t want the whole class to know that it is laundry day because they can see through my leggings. Something has to be kept to the imagination. How can we get thicker leggings? Who are we petitioning for adequate leggins that keep everything we have a secret from our yoga classes?

Like, people really don’t understand the problem of having a big booty and trying to be lazy and comfortable like the rest of the world.

It truly is a universal problem for all big booty beauties trying to be comfortable as we go through our days. We just want the same kind of comfort as everyone else. Is that too much to ask for?

Betrayed indeed! It is never easy to hide the same booty that kept your ex going wild for all of that time you spent together. No matter how much you try and try, there is no denying your booty in a crowd of people. It is low key the saddest and hardest thing you have to deal with.

No chill. It all started as a joke but things soon went too far. There is no way back from this kind of treatment no matter how much you try. Talk about an abuse of a friendship. How rude.

Hide-n-seek is NEVER your friend.

Seeker: I can see your ass hanging out of the bushes, Lara. I’m coming for you.

Me: Every time! ? This is so not fair!

Online shopping is your worst enemy when it comes to dressing yourself.

It is always worth the trip to the store if you are going to truly make the most out of your money and your shopping. There is nothing more frustrating than spending hours online reading reviews and scrolling through thousands of styles in hundreds of stores. After all of that, you wait a week for shipping, because who pays for express shipping, and find out the booty won’t let you wear the clothing.

Lastly, you’ve been this person more than once and it never gets less embarrassing.

I can’t count how many times I have knocked over signs, dishes from tables, and just about everything that is not nailed down. It is truly one of the most embarrassing moments because people know that it was your own booty that caused the commotion.

Keds Latest Designs Proves That Avoiding Cultural Appropriation In Fashion Is Totally Possible

Keds

It’s always really cool to see a big name brand embrace the art of our Latinidad. It’s like a nod to all of the great Latinx artisans who add beauty and color to our culture. In fact, seeing consumers enthusiastically welcome these goods feels like further validation. With this in mind, it makes this new collaboration all the sweeter for us art and fashion lovers.

Keds is collaborating with designers Thelma Dávila and Lolita Mia on a line inspired by the Latina-created brands.

Instagram / @Keds

In what the shoe company is calling a “collaboration fiesta,” Keds released three fun and vibrant new designs.

Some of the shoes borrow inspiration from Thelma Dávila’s colorful Guatemalan textiles. Alternatively, other pairs utilize Lolita Mia’s festive fringe as embellishments. These touches combine with Keds’ original platform shoes to make a unique product.

Of the partnership with these new brands, Keds’ website says:

“It’s so rewarding to be able to be a part of the professional and personal growth of women who decided to follow their dreams. Entrepreneurs (especially female ones) are always brave, they’re risk-takers that believe strongly in themselves. And we believe in them too. We’re so excited to introduce you to our latest for-women-by-women collaborations.”

The Thelma Dávila brand is named after its Guatemalan founder.

Keds

The company specializes in designing and crafting unique pieces by hand. Furthermore, their products utilize Guatemalan textiles, leathers and non-leather materials. Obviously, this collaboration is built on a solid relationship between the two brands. Since last year, Keds retail locations have carried Thelma Dávila bags and products in stores.

On their website, Keds said the design collaborations were intent on “taking geometric design and color cues from [Dávila’s] native culture, our classic Triple Kick gets transformed into a fiesta-ready standout.”

Founded by jewelry artisan and entrepreneur, Elena Gil, Lolita Mia is a Costa Rican accessory brand.

Keds

While studying abroad in Italy, Gil made a significant personal discovery. She realized that ethnic crafts and traditions were very alike across regions. Specifically, they were similar in cultural importance. In light of this, she decided to start her own brand. Lolita Mia’s handmade products embrace what Gil has coined a “Universal Ethnic Luxury.”

Of the collaboration with Lolita Mia, Keds’ website reads:

“[The] aesthetic shines through in these playful renditions of our platforms in the form of fun, festive fringe and punchy tropical shades.”

The Ked × Lolita Mia collaboration has two designs while the Ked x Thelma Dávila collab is made up of one.

“Triple Tassel” is a multicolored platform with purple, pink, orange and white tassels attached to the laces. “Triple Decker Fringe” is an off-white platform slip-on with multi-colored fringe and golden embellishments on top. The “Triple Kick” features a neutral platform with Guatemalan textile accents around the bottom.

Each design is priced at $70 a pair. Moreover, they are available exclusively on Keds’ website. Be sure to order yours today and add a little extra Latinx flare to your summer looks.

There’s something we have to address: we stan an over the top wedding veil. Hey, we just generally like a good veil. Because, if you’re going to go to the effort of veiling your face at your wedding, then why not put in a little more effort, and make your look extra AF? We’ve put together a collection of choice OTT wedding veil looks so that you can drool over them. Read on to find out which wedding veil style is your favorite!

1. Match the lace with the dress.

This bride has done such a good job matching the lace on her veil with the lace on her dress, that it’s hard to tell where the dress ends and the veil begins! Part of perfecting a dramatic princess-like look is ensuring that you’re overflowing with delicate lace. Clearly, this groom is besotted with his gorgeous bride, and her style just completes shot.

2. Adorn the veil with pearls.

Take this pearl of wisdom: decorating your veil in pearls is one way to make sure that it’s as eye-catching as possible. What’s the bet that this bride’s pearls are something old, or something new, or maybe something borrowed? This bride has played it smart when it came to wearing her set of pearls: with them weighing down the veil at the front, hopefully, everything stayed in place for both the ceremony and the reception!

3. Stuff tradition.

Who needs to do down the traditional route and wear the same kind of veil that everyone else is wearing? This bride has opted for a Hat-supported veil, which means that she’s not only protected from the sun for the day, but she’s also got her veil secured for as long as she needs it! Just think about how classy you’d look if you were in her shoes – or veil – while walking down the aisle.

4. Bigger is better.

One easy way to really go over the top with your wedding veil is to wear the biggest veil you can find! You don’t necessarily need to get a super long veil to pull off this look. In fact, you may find it easier to manage the veil if doesn’t reach the floor. The catch is in making sure that the weight of your voluminous veil is well-balanced, so it doesn’t fall off your head!

5. Longer is lovely, too.

Nothing screams “majestic” more than having an extra-long veil. We’re talking longer-than-your-train kind of long. Even if your hair is pulled back in a classic style, your long veil can make it seem like you’ve got to-die-for tresses. Can you imagine trying to pull off a Pantene-appropriate hair swish with a long veil like this? In short, it would be epic

6. Your veil can be your crowning glory.

If you think that your veil isn’t extra enough for your big day, then why not jazz up your style with a crown? Especially since a tiara can be the ultimate accessory if you want to feel like a queen on your wedding day. This bride has pulled off the look effortlessly, by making sure not to overdo it with other jewelry and accessories.

7. Longer, plus bigger, equals magnificent.

Instagram / @wedding.tribe

This bride knows how to go all out with her veil. It’s long, and it’s big, and it’s wonderful! See the way that the veil is opaque? That means it’s got to be hella heavy. This bride is carrying some weight on her head.

8. It’s not just about the veil’s style, it’s about how you wear it.

Instagram / @monique_powers

This bride knows how to rock a veil. It’s transparent enough that you can see her face and her divine makeup, but it’s opaque enough that the back of her head is pretty well concealed.

9. It’s all about the little details.

Instagram / @demofotografo

The best way to show off your love of over the top veils is to wear one that has the tiniest, and most intricate, lace detail through it. It’s feminine, and it’s just such a special way of putting your own unique touch on the veil, too. Personalization is everything these days, amigos. 

10. Consider the design at the edge of the veil.

The thing is, you need to think about how to protect your veil from getting really wrecked while you’re traipsing through town taking timeless wedding photos. Because let’s face it, the ground is just filled with grime. So, if you have a solid hem around the edge of the veil, you know that it should help in protecting your veil against snagging and becoming ruined. And you know what else? You can use the hem to invest in a little extra-ness, just like this bride here.

11. Consider how the veil looks on camera.

There is no way that this shot occurred naturally. This bride would have been planning this photo for months, thinking about how she’d need someone to stand just a little off-camera to maneuver a giant fan, and how she’d need a wedding veil that would look just right. That’s why she picked the most over the top veil, complete with lace designs throughout, to really get the effect she wanted. Learn from this, babes.

12. Stuff the white veil.

Instagram / @dragonproducciones

Who needs a white veil when you could just go all-out in red? Who are we kidding: over the top wedding veils include standout wedding hairpieces, as well. Besides, a deep crimson like this color captures the real spirit of the wedding – true love and passion.

13. Veils don’t need to have straight edges!

Instagram / @ankirozcar

Curves are cute, too. This bride clearly knew this when she was picking her veil and followed suit. One thing to keep in mind is that if you are going for this style, consider how it’s going to work with your hair on the big day. The trickiest part is figuring out how to tuck it in properly so you can show off the beauty of the veil, without it falling out halfway through the fiesta!

14. Keep the detail at the tail of the veil.

Instagram / @ximenazermeno

We all know that the part of the veil everyone sees the most when you’re walking down the aisle is the end of it. So, why not save the most over the top parts of the veil to the very end? It means everyone can appreciate your taste, and you’re not going to be kicking yourself over the fact that the best part of your veil is hidden away in your perfectly-coiffed hair. It’s a win-win for all.
