Sometimes it feels like walking a tightrope. In recent years, I have been wearing less skirts and dresses. I love wearing them but often feel nervous with people staring and making inappropriate comments. I want to work up my courage to do as you say, and dress for the female gaze. It's an uphill battle. Thanks so much for writing this story 💜
