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."

So let's talk about how a dog owner on Facebook learned her dog's "adorable" behavior was, in fact, furious masturbation.

Readers, if you know anything about me you know I love a good plot twist and I love chonky puppers.

Yesterday, life combined my two great loves in a hilarious and inappropriate way.

I was mindlessly scrolling through my dog groups on Facebook when a video with a few hundred laugh reacts but almost no comments caught my eye.

The still from the video was a pudgy little Frenchie, so obviously I had to read and watch.

Have you ever fantasized about what it would be like to win the lottery? Having money for the rest of your life, as far as the eye can see, to cover your expenses.

And have you thought about all the things you would buy if you could really afford them? Are they ALL practical things, or are some of them silly?

We always love to fantasize about what life would be like if money were no object. And you are not alone!

One of the most freeing realizations I've had was when I understood that not everyone was going to like me.

That's just the way it is for all of us, and I learned that it would be unfair for me to dedicate so much time worrying about what others might think.

It changed my life—improved it, I'd say.

That, combined with my willingness to take responsibility for my own actions, was crucial to my self-development.

Whether it's an epiphany or experience, there are many things that can happen and can successfully shift your perspective.
