My blogger friend, Lala and I, took a trip to the Detroit Institute of Arts. Before the snow fell in Michigan, we had a mini photo taking session.

Jeans are so hard to find for mostly all body shapes, especially since I have short, fat legs. So finally, I went to Burlington Coat Factory and found a pair of stretch jeans. OMG. They are nice and comfortable. Doesn’t even pinch my belly rolls either.

I got this peplum jacket from Torrid last year. Had to pull this staple piece out the back of the closet. I really love this shot! So laid back, which I rarely am. Haha.

Fall Fashion

“Rockin’ The Hoodie”

Dearborn, MI

Got an email from Idakoos wanting to send me a customized hoodie. I am in love with hoodies. So warm and snuggly. And it being customized was even better.

It took me a long time to come up with something to put on the front. I’m a writer. This should be easy for me, right? There was so many things I wanted to say, but I wanted the hoodie to reflect who I am to the person whose reading it.

Since hashtags are trendy, I stared with those.

#Curvy

#Black

#Hijabi

Killen’ The Game.

I chose these words because they are who I am. And frankly, I am a quite unapologetic about each one. I’m curvy, so there is a stigma that I’m lazy or unhealthy. I am Black, so I am ghetto or poor. I am Muslim, so I am oppressed or a terrorist. I can be all of those words and be none of the stigmas attached. So I put the last phrase on there to solidify it all. I kill the game, which means I am confident in my abilities to go above and beyond. So boom!

The Idakoos sweater was easy to create and shipped pretty fast. The material is heavy duty and the inside is warm and soft. You have the option to buy one or 100+ Definitely check them out.

I don’t know why I’m so nervous. But, I am. You get to see the @simplybeuk ad here before it’s aired on TV right before the show X Factor tomm. Me. My face. On a whole ass commercial. I’m a bit at lost for what this all means to be apart of the #morethanourbodies campaign, but I just want to share this. I was 13. Bigger than all the other girls my age. Clothes for plus-size folks were nonexistent. On top of that, Mom was a single mother of 5. She hadn’t had the funds. I was frumpy. Some ppl had mistaken me for a boy. My confidence down the drain. Mom put my younger brother in modeling. He was half Black, half Algerian. Everyone said he’d do good modeling because of his looks. I used to watch ANTM. I knew how to smize. Knew all the moves and poses. I sat in the audience watching all the models. Watching my brother not do very well on stage. I could do that, I told myself. I wanted to ask Mom so badly to let me do it, let my try. But, after seeing the others, I noticed that none of them looked like me. That world wasn’t for me. And, if I ever wanted to be involved in fashion, then I’d have to style people thinner than me, taller, more proportionate. On set, I was the shortest girl. The biggest in size. The unsigned underdog of the group. But, I earned my spot as the first fat, Black, and very Muslim model to land a major campaign with a retailer in Europe. I’m not sure y’all understand how major this is. How I’ve never had anyone who looked like me tell me it was okay to be unapologetic. How that little Muslim girl is told no, no, no. With my body, I am telling her yes, fuck yes. And, I’m telling you yes! You are valid, your dreams valid. After you gas me 😂 answer this: who in your life gave you permission to be yourself unapologetically, and how? #ad #detroitblogger #psootd #plussize #instafashion #bodypositive #bgki #effyourbeautystandards #girlboss #pizzasisters4lyfe #blackgirlswhoblog #londonblogger #psfashion #blackgirlmagic #muslimgirl #streetstyle #feminist #fatacceptance #psootd #seventeen #turbanista #honormycurves #bodydysmorphia #instabeauty #intersectionalfeminism #fashionblogger #simplybe #eatingdisorderrecovery #editorial #hijabi
