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.

As you all can see this is my favorite stripped jacket from Torrid! I wear it all the time. Versatility.

My friend and I were enjoying sushi at Kabuki’s in Dearborn. Black and white with a pop of color. Classic style maneuver. And we are both wearing Ruby Woo from MAC.

Because I model, sometimes I feel as if I just shouldn’t have low self esteem. Because I’m a body-positive activist, I feel I have a duty to be “on”. To be okay with my body all the time publicly. To not deal with body dysmorphia because I take photos that others see as “perfect”. I have so many girls and women inbox me about how much my photos give them life. Give them courage. Allow them to go out and take up space. I do not want to let them down. Ya know? Sometimes, I feel like social media is like an overly perfect Tinder profile. We all are trying to create the perfect narrative. I get it. I shot this outfit last week. These were the only black jeans I had. And the only pair that matched. I was able to wear them comfortably last year. This time around I was busting out of them. When you can’t fit something that you used to fit or try on your size at the store and it doesn’t or no longer fits, it’s like the world is coming down. I spazzed out. I am huge. I am big. I am huge-r than the hugest person. Why can’t I fit into them? Why do you insist on eating a bag of chips every night? Why can’t you just drink water instead of juice? Empty calories! I wanted to throw the whole outfit away, but my job dictates that I take photos and show off clothes. So, I took the photo. Do you feel the need to uphold a certain standard in life, on social media? And, was there a time where you spazzed out when something hadn’t fit the way you wanted it to? How’d you manage? All bodies can chime in.
