Wardrobe Oxygen is basically the only Real Fashion Blog I read, because she’s fairly body-pos and both practices and preaches that fashion should be about you and what you love to wear and what makes you look good TO YOU, not anyone else. This popped up in my RSS feeds this morning, and I had to share with y’all, because…
This morning Refinery 29 sent out their e-newsletter with the headline, “10 killer outfits that prove ANYONE can wear shorts.” Well with that headline, you’re going to have this soft curvy size 12/14 gal click to read more!

Not a single plus sized woman, no one with large hips or thighs, no ladies with bellies and no butt, no cellulite, saddlebags, or knees over 30 years of age (because those of us over 30 know the knees start experiencing gravity, no matter our size).

So instead, she provides a gallery of alternate images of a variety of women rocking shorts, all kinds of bodies, sizes, colors, and fashion choices ranging from fashion-blog-worthy to hanging-out-in-summertime. Plus there’s some actually useful advice on how to find shorts that work for you and what to look for. Click through and check it out!
