We are actual human beings…

Have you ever been shopping and seen something that looked sooo good on a mannequin, but when you wore it… Yeah, you realised you and the manikin aren’t the same 😩

I don’t know if guys do this but, speaking from a lady’s perspective, we could sometimes become so bugged down by ideals on how to look and what to wear.
