Leah V., Wardrobe Stylist, Freelance Writer, and Fashion Blogger.

I’m and African-American Muslim living in the D (Detroit). I have many roles, some of which include wardrobe styling, fashion curating, and creative writing. I style all sizes, plus or straight, demure or bizarre.

I have a B.S. in business, an M.A. in creative fiction, and an M.F.A. in publishing. I’m currently working on an interracial young adult novel set in the future. I blog about anything: fashion, how-to, non-fiction, culture, diversity, and body acceptance. The list goes on.

Y’all know I like to dance. For me, dancing is such a major form of body positivity. Especially because once I started gaining the majority of my weight, I swore off dancing in public because of my massive wiggles and jiggles. I didn’t want people to judge me, stare at the blob dropping it like it’s hot. One day, I decided to dance again. Just as unapologetically as the other girls on the dance floor. I decided to go dancing while in LA during my trip. I’m walking around the venue scoping out the scene, in search of the hypest dancers. I see a big girl, a fat girl in a group with her thinner counterparts all dressed in bodycon dresses. The plus-size gal was modest and wore a faux fur vest. She wasn’t dancing, either. I made my way to her at once, tapped her on the shoulder, and said, “I love the way you rock that vest.” She looked over her shoulder with surprise, shock. So, I said it again. Her eyes widened and the biggest smile ran across her big cheeks. The fat friend. I was the fat friend. I am the fat friend. Who was picked over in a group of thinner women to be hit on, to be asked out, to be complimented. Invisible was what I felt like. A compliment goes a long way for marginalized bodies from very big to very thin. Have you ever felt invisible or the odd one around a certain group of friends or felt insecure? Also, do you compliment others? When’s the last time you’ve received a compliment? Any body type can chime in.
