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."

History is made on a daily basis.

Indeed, there is little more exciting than having witnessed the accomplishments of people like Barack Obama, Stacey Abrams, and Greta Thunberg knowing that they have firmly reserved a space for themselves in history books.

Of course, most of the people who paved the way to make the world what it is today have long since passed away.

Not all of them, though!

It may surprise you to learn that there are people who made an indelible impression on history who are still much alive today.

Some of whom even continue to make a difference to this very day

We all indulge in fast food from time to time.

Even if we know what we're eating isn't exactly healthy, sometimes the salty, fatty mass-produced food is the only thing we want.

Resulting in our making weekly, if not daily, visits to a nearby chain.

Then, of course, there are the chains that we make every effort to avoid.

We've likely tried places at least once simply because everyone is always talking about them.

But after having one bite, we have trouble seeing exactly what all the fuss was about and vow to never return.

Even if it might be the only option at a rest stop or even the only available food for miles, we instead opt to wait and be hungry.

There are several movies I've watched so many times I think the viewings outnumber the days I've lived.

And much like a favorite tv series or movie, who wouldn't love to start again anew?

Experiencing that first time but with that feeling of... "I'm gonna love this forever."

We never appreciate the first time enough.

But that's life.

Warning: there are spoilers below.

There is no one way to anybody's heart or libido.

Sexy doesn't always have to equal raunchy.

I've known people turned on by music, books, nature, and even funerals (don't ask).

What starts someone's engine is a mystery.
