(I’m searching for the perfect fall ensemble for my model for the event.)

I was contacted by Nicole, store manager of Lord & Taylor, to talk about their new and improved Plus-Size section including brands from Jessica Simpson, Calvin Klein, and Michel Kors, just to name a few.

This was Lord & Taylor’s first blogger meet and greet in-store. I decided to get two models and style them live. I also was able to style myself from head to toe in L&T’s plus section.

I also styled my bff, Madinah. Love the warm-toned accents.

Seeing all these photos (swipe) overwhelm me in a beautiful way. These were taken by family, fans, and supporters from @target stores all over the U.S. This was my face when my sis spotted me in store yesterday with her coworkers. “Your sister is famous!” They gushed. She said she had to stop herself from crying because to see her sister be the first fat, Black Muslim model to be advertised in thousands of stores is a huge feat. I auditioned for Target last summer. I was scared shitless. Shocked that they even gave me a chance to step foot in the studio. On that first audition, I knew I didn’t do well. I left defeated. They didn’t hire me. I went on a second audition. This time ready. I aced it! Again, they passed. I was angry that I probably wouldn’t ever get it because maybe they weren’t ready for a Black Muslim. Yet... The third time, I got it. I got it. Me. So many times I’ve wanted to quit this. So many times people have told me to stop. That I could never. Would never. No one believed me when I told them that I was gonna be somebody one day. I’ve had people, close people try to shatter me. Defile my character. Make me feel bad for striving to be better. I’ve been called fake. A drama queen. Oh, she think she better than us. She’s too much. No one will ever accept her as is. I wanna be petty. I really do to the folks who hurt my feelings. But, I didn’t get here by sweating the little stuff. I got here because I move forward despite my mistakes and failures. I’m in your local Target store because I work damn hard with very little. I’m basking in my win today (even though I’m sick again 😭). Have you seen me in Target? What’s something you’ve accomplished when no one else believed you could? Bonus: how do you keep yourself from being petty? I need answers!
