an urban embroidery statement piece
ZERO FUCKS is a statement piece about the everyday societal pressure of being a woman. No, scratch that. ZERO FUCKS is a statement piece about the crazy daily pressures women put on themselves—idiots that we are.
ZERO FUCKS is allowing yourself to say no to things you don’t want, and not feeling guilty about it. It’s a tapestry, yes, and it’s telling you not to worry so much about what others think of you. It reminds you not to get upset or embarrassed about who you are. You’re a woman! A woman who will love her cellulite thighs if it damn well pleases her. Yes, us women come with butchy looks, passionate rants, daily cries, fanatic focus, growing love handles, crazy business ideas. So what?
ZERO FUCKS is a piece of embroidery—girly, huh?—carefully stitched to relieve you of the anxiety, fear, and guilt that come with saying no to the expectations of society and those around you. It’s needlework as a refusal to have our self-esteem be chipped away at day after day.
