Every once in a while, you get a chance to get what’s on your mind off your your chest and sometimes what you’re thinking lands smack on your chest…in the form of a super fabulous, extremely powerful message tee.
The top I’m wearing in these photos is courtesy of Feel More Better, a website where women can sound off on issues that affect all of us. This is one of their StoryTees, which is super soft, cut beautifully and does a world of good because not only is the message powerful, but its purchase goes to the purchase of a brand new book for an underprivileged girl. I don’t know about you, but books were my best friends growing up. I love this 1-for-1 goodness they’re spreading.
This particular tee takes the message “Not Photoshopped” from our brains (you know how I feel about the accurate portrayal of all body types out there) to our chests and out on the streets. Feel More Better has also taken this one step further by creating the Media and Public Health Act, which aims to pass federal legislation that would require the labeling of any Photoshopped or altered (airbrushed, digital enhancement, etc.) image in advertising and editorial to carry “Truth in Advertising” labels.
If you’d like to purchase a tee of your own, click here. The rest of the look is pretty simple: camo camis from The Limited and sandals from TJ Maxx. The tee is the star of the show.
Even better? I’m giving one of these uber-soft tees away to a lucky reader. Want to win it? Sound off on the issue of Photoshopping and the pressures of unreal body image in the media below. I’ll pick one winner at random this Friday to win one.
Because we need to celebrate our bodies. Hey, everyone. This is what a real woman’s body looks like. This is what a real THINKING woman’s body looks like. Pretty snazzy, eh?
Sound off below!
