My Personal Nemesis

I can't be the only person who thinks that it's wrong when I'm a size 8 or 10 in vintage, size 4 or 6 in boutique designer/UK sizing, and a 000 in US mall brands (if they ran that small, but that's what a tailor is for right?).

Who, exactly, are you trying to fool? 
I promise you that I'm not shrinking away, and yet, my sizes seem to indicate otherwise. 

That's why it cracks me up when people pull out the trivia that Marylin Monroe  was a size 12, so big is beautiful! 
Honey, Marylin Monroe also had a 23 inch waist. 
If we were best buds and went shopping at the mall today, she'd be about a size 2. 

Thanks to Already Pretty for finding this!
