Women's fashion has always been a difficult and frustrating thing.

If you aren't familiar with women's clothing, it's very different than men's: the material is much thinner, sizing makes approximately zero sense across brands, and very rarely do the clothes have pockets--or they have fake pockets, which is even more infuriating.


But one woman was on a mission to alleviate some of that frustration during her wedding.

In a viral post (that has now been shared upwards of 3,000 times) a bridesmaid tweeted a picture of her and the bride's wedding party, "My friend got married last month and her dress and the bridesmaids' dresses ALL HAD POCKETS."


And people were SO thrilled that they could not stop talking about it on Twitter.






"And yes, we did use them for storing snacks, thank you for asking."

But why don't women's dresses have pockets?

"I honestly believe the fashion industry is not helping women advance," said Camilla Olson, director of CO LLC, a high fashion firm.

"We [women] know clearly we need pockets to carry technology and I think it's expected we are going to carry a purse. When we're working we don't carry purses around. A pocket is a reasonable thing."







"I find it discouraging," Olson said. "Fashion looks selectively at who they let in and keeps women at a certain place. It's not helping women move forward in the workplace."

Olson also says she believes industry trends will soon change:

"More women are expecting and demanding pockets. I was hearing more about pockets on the runway in recent shows. Pockets are becoming more interesting, but they aren't the size to carry around an iPhone, much less an iPhone [6] Plus."






These dresses were purchased from David's Bridal.

"You'd never expect to hire suits for guys and then 'add pockets' as an extra," Eva Paterson, the bride in the photo, said of her decision to purchase the dresses. "These dresses prove that it's possible to look beautiful, feel amazing, and be practically equipped for the day, and I hope it encourages other brands to up their game on this as well."

The advice "fake it til you make it," though often said with at least a hint of sarcasm, does carry quite a bit of wisdom.

I'm going to be perfectly honest––I'm a city boy. I'm not a huge fan of hiking or camping. I happen to be a huge fan of running water. Have you heard of it? It's great. Highly recommended.

I've also, on a more humorous note, watched far too many horror films over the years and don't particularly like idea of running off into the woods only to piss off some demon that was perfectly fine until I arrived. I also have immense respect for our friendly neighborhood serial killers and demonstrate this regularly by staying out of their territory.

Those who love the great outdoors had plenty to share after Redditor Your_Normal_Loser asked the online community, "

Hikers of Reddit, what is the weirdest or creepiest thing you've come across while hiking?"

Time is of the essence. And time is not definable. Those are lessons we learn as we get older; as times passes and fluctuates in front of us.

Time is always fleeting yet always catches up to us. I find myself shocked when I wake up on certain days and realize I'm a particular age of my parent that sticks out for me.

Like, how did that happen? I guess I should just be thankful I'm still here to witness it all.

Redditor u/TW1103 wanted to discuss the meaning... of time and all of its affects by asking:

What fact really puts the scale of time into an insane perspective?
