I'd never heard about Debenhams till about 2:00 PM today when I finally managed to get onto my computer and started filtering through my Refinery29 emails. (Sidenote, those are really useful for keeping up with what's up in fashion, especially when your life is primarily covered in homework). Featured in these e-mails was a story about Debenhams' summer lookbook. Lookbooks aren't an unusual story for Refinery29, but they were interested in this one - and for good reason! The lookbook showcases an absolute array of people of different shapes, sizes, ethnicities, and even physical capabilities. And, though it might be shocking for some people to realize it, it does not make the clothes somehow less beautiful or interesting. Personally, I think it makes them even better.

Some of my favorite shots featured with the story...


I hope you're as happy that this is a thing as I am!


  1. I love this :) It seriously just put a huge smile on my face! Don't get me wrong, I love everyone equally, including the typical model choice. But it is nice to see diversity!

  2. That blue and green dress is a stunner... and I love that different sizes and shapes are featured.. b/c we are all different!

    Pearls & Paws


HI! Please read this before you comment!

I love to hear from my readers and those new to my blog (feel free to url-drop if you need to)! Interacting with people can be so inspiring. PLEASE DON'T leave me just "FOLLOW MY BLOG" messages that you copypasta on dozens of blogs - I follow blogs when I feel inspired by their content, and I try to show it by actively commenting on the content they've generated. I will delete these responses, because they make me extremely uncomfortable. (Yes, I'm aware that's pretty odd... I'm sorry).

That said, I hope you have a lovely day!
