I had a photo shoot planned that morning that I’d been working on for the last few weeks. Tamara of Ashley Stewart emailed, asking if I’d like to cover the event and be a special guest. I couldn’t refuse.

The fashion show was awesome and the energy was high.

Here are my top “Three” picks:

1. The tulle skirt. It can be paired with a cami, a denim button-up, or a blazer. Such a versatile piece.

2. A tribal print dress.

3. The Fringe bag. Basically anything with fringe on it is this fall’s trending detail.

It isn’t an event unless you have paparazzi.

As a special guest, I was able to join Ashley Stewart’s “Runway Competition”. I did win! Ha. But I had to take a pic with one of my fiercest competitors.

It’s not about having the perfect picture, it’s about having the perfect attitude.

My wondrous trip to Mexico City via @aeromexico is coming to an end. Although, I wish I could stay longer, I feel reenergized and ready to tackle life. It’s been a long time since I’ve truly had some time like this and I’m super grateful, even if it was for a few days. I’m gonna drop a whole vlog about my trip that I hope y’all will enjoy. I was just thinking how I wouldn’t be able to have an opportunity like this if I hadn’t decided years ago that I would stop being afraid and just do that shit anyway, despite being in a tense relationship and community. If I had listened to people tell me I was too fat to model, if I had listened to people tell me that I couldn’t tell my story because I’d make Muslims look bad and embarrass myself, had I listened to the media who constantly perpetuates how large bodies, how Black bodies, how Muslim bodies and other marginalized folks ain’t deserving, had I listened and allowed myself to succumb to fear and my own self-abuse, I would not be here right now. You may not like me. Like what I do. Or what I say or how I do things. But, for one thing you will respect the grind. You will respect me not giving af how dumb I look. Or how I had to claw my way to still be standing. Nothing I have has come easy, but still I dance and enjoy life with all of my jiggles and baggage. So when you feel like giving up, life is too hard and too much, I want you to remember this and keep going anyway. What have you struggled with to overcome that we have not seen you endure or struggle with? What advice would you give someone who is in the thick of a struggle? Let’s chat. *P.S. How y’all like my Peggy Bundy/Fran Drescher outfit? 😂😂 #psootd #plussize #instafashion #bodypositive #bgki #honormycurves #effyourbeautystandards #pizzasisters4lyfe #blackgirlswhoblog #fashion #londonblogger #psfashion #blackgirlmagic #muslimgirl #bodyconfidence #plusmodel #feminist #wiw #intersectionalfeminism #turbanista #bodydysmorphia #fatacceptance #newyorkblogger #selflove #streetstyle #goldenconfidence #dancevideos #animalprint #travelblogger #mexicocity
