Who’s Dressing Their Best?

May 9th, 2010 § 42 comments

This week is officially Dress Your Best week here at academichic and we’re thrilled to have received such an overwhelming response from you telling us what you’re celebrating about your body. So many of you commented with your lists and many of you said you would be participating in your own posts.  We’ve compiled a master list with everyone who is featuring her best this week, so that we can all follow along with each other in this dialogue of self-appreciation.  If you want to check in on these awesome contributors and their Dress Your Best posts, make sure to visit the sites listed below!

We also encourage all of you, who do not have a site or blog, to still participate by reminding yourself what it is that you love about your body and creating your own  ”Top Five” list this week. And why not spread the message to five friends, and remind them each that they have at least five things that make them unique and beautiful.

We’ll be checking back with our own “Top Five” lists, so stay tuned for more Dress Your Best as the week continues!

    Thank you for including me in the list! I have two minor change requests:

    1. The name of the blog: from “Kirei Style” to “Kirei Style: America de Self-Care”
    (“Kirei Style” is the name of the site for many blogs, including mine)

    2. The URL: please use this one

    Thank you again. I’m so excited to participate!

  21. Saraann says:

    What a wonderful idea! I don’t have an outfit blog, but I think it’s great the way you’ve created positive community here. Keep the great posts and ideas coming!

  22. Julie says:

    I’m in! What a splendid idea.

  23. Ger says:

    While I admire the motivations for this, I can’t say I agree with it. Doesn’t dressing “our best” mean that we are ranking body parts into those we like and by omission, those we dislike? How about spreading the idea of a wholistic love/celebration of our bodies and dressing to feel good, not to emphasize certain parts (and again by omission, hiding others?)

  24. Emily says:

    I’m late, but I’m participating, too! I’ll be focused on my height, my curves, my eyes, my hair, and my goofball personality. Thanks for such a fun project!
