(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.

So we were just about ready to quit–well, I know I was. “The style blogging industry is dead in Detroit,” I whined. I’d had enough. I was invited to the Style Expo and was a style judge. This is where my stylish fate was sealed…I met Jordan. We took some selfies, and then she explained to me what she was trying to do. I was interested.

We talked, and talked some more. Then we began brainstorming. We met some other cool bloggers along the way. We all complained how there wasn’t enough or this and wasn’t enough of that. We made up our minds that we needed backup and decided to put a call out for other creatives.

A lot of cool style bloggers from the D!

We only expected it be us four…plus two or three others. To our surprise many bloggers were available and interested!

Eden photobombing. Ha!

Shout out to Toasted Oak Grill and Market in Novi for accommodating us rowdy girls.

So our goal is to create a support system and creative platform for Detroit style bloggers to connect to with each other as well as business.

Y’all get the beat face Leah V and y’all gonna get the haven’t washed up, dry faced, sick af Leah V, too. Life isn’t always glamorous. It’s very interesting how alone I feel when I get super sick. This is my second time being sick. My immune system has failed me. I had run out of groceries and medicine and was depressed about not having anyone to go to the store for me. I wished I was back in my hometown. At least I had my people. I also have a hard time asking for help because I don’t like bothering or owing people. On top of feeling lonely, I was supposed to use this weekend to catch up on work, but because my head is pounding and I can’t sit or stand for more than a few minutes, I have been stuck in bed. I feel lazy. I don’t feel beautiful. I don’t feel accomplished. I feel much bigger than I am. My body hurts. I’m nitpicking about my face. And, I feel as though I should be strong enough to force myself to work even through the pain. When I should be allowing myself to rest and ask for help. But, when you’ve been on your own for so long. When you’ve been the only person you can count and depend on, you kinda fall into the trap of maintaining the walls you’ve built around yourself. There’s a price to pay for being vulnerable and visible and strong. Do you have a hard time asking for help, why or why not? When do you find yourself most lonely? Also, send healing vibes and prayers and cold remedies and funny sayings to lift my spirits. Let’s chat. P.S. I should’ve know soup that has “skinny” in the title wasn’t gonna be appetizing 😂😭 #newyorkblogger #psootd #plussize #instafashion #bodypositive #honormycurves #effyourbeautystandards #pizzasisters4lyfe #blackgirlswhoblog #fashion #londonblogger #psfashion #blackgirlmagic #muslimgirl #bodyconfidence #plusmodel #feminist #wiw #intersectionalfeminism #turbanista #bodydysmorphia #fatacceptance #selflove #goldenconfidence #beautyblogger #mentalhealthawareness #selfportrait #nofilter #acne
