I remember when a website included one of my photos below in a humorous article about the disadvantages of wearing long flared sleeves. The author used my photo as an example of how not to pose when wearing sleeves like these. She said, don’t bend your arms like how I did, else risk looking like a bat. Lol. But here I am, showcasing the same pose (see 2nd photo below).
Don’t worry, I didn’t take offense. (It was a really funny and relatable article.) Deliberately including said photo isn’t some sort of protest. I just can’t help but bend my arms this way because I like how flared sleeves look when they open up like this. Don’t they just look so dramatic and oriental? They make me want to dance and flail my arms like a flower child on a meadow… or maybe flap my wings like a true bat.
