Can’t A Girl Have Pockets? {Rant}

Dear Fashion Industry

The other day, I went to watch Wonder Woman with the hubby (and ZOMG was it amazing). First date in more than three months, might I add. I didn’t bring my purse, and tried to put my phone in my pocket only to realise that I didn’t have any pockets in my cardigan.

A cardigan without pockets. No pockets to slot my phone away? UGH! I don’t know about you, but I’m so OVER having to wear clothes without pockets. Even when we have pockets in our jeans, they’re fake pockets. WHAT?! Why! (Damn you, fake pocket jeggings!)

Okay, okay, I know why. It’s because women usually wear purses, and there is a whole billion-trillion dollar industry built upon the necessity for women to throw shit in a receptacle of some sort. Now don’t get me wrong, I love a good purse, but would it kill a designer to make slits for pockets? I believe that most of us would like pockets in our clothing regardless of whether or not we wear a purse with that outfit. I personally prefer putting my phone in my pocket. It’s just more convenient for me! There is no conversation when it comes to men having pockets in their clothes because it’s considered a necessity for them. Is it so hard to add a little fabric and make a pocket for a homegirl? I mean, as a plus-sized woman with a big butt, pockets are the least of my problems, but it still sits pretty high on the list.

Can we also quickly brush on the fact that shopping is still targeted toward women, yet we still can’t even get a consistency when it comes to clothing sizes. PSH, forget clothing, even bra-sizing can be ridiculous and frustrating. Yes, I agree that there are more plus-sized clothing options nowadays, but we still have a ways to go.

So help a girl out and please get it together to give us something chic and functional. Also, give a curvy girl some jeans that fit both the hips and thighs without hitting up a tailor so I won’t moon the world? Thanks, boo boo. Most appreciated.
