Q: Where do you like to shop?

 

Mel: Forever 21 and online. Most of the time I really have something in mind that I want and it isn’t always “modern” and I don’t want to be bound by that, so I search the world wide web!

 

Q: Have you ever been to NYFW, if so when and what was your fave part?

 

Mel: I have not been, but they won’t be able to keep me out for long.

 

Q: Who is your fave designer?

 

Mel: There are so many to pick from really! I just like a designer who stays consistent. I consistently like what they produce.

#Ad I either used to get “oh, you dress pretty for a big girl” or I just got teased for the way I expressed myself with fashion. Even though I was limited as a plus-size Muslim girl growing up, I still found ways to rock an outfit using what I had. Because I liked to wear bold prints and mix pattens and layers, I was a target for harsh comments and hurtful names. A lot of bullies (because that’s what they are) wanted me to fall in line. Be normal. Shine less. So, they belittled me. Laughed at me in front of others. Made fun of the way I expressed myself. I’d always feel like an outsider, but I remember finding freedom in picking and choosing how I adorned my body. The brighter the better. I wanted to stand out when the world told me to take a seat. No matter how much people picked on me or called me weird, I always found a way to be exactly who I was. Unapologetically. I’m excited that retailers like @monsoon have stylish pieces that you can mix and match. Dress modestly if you choose. Modest and stylish do not have to be exclusive. You can be just as bold and sexy. There are so many styles to dive into y’all! You don’t have to follow the trends to be in. Make yo own lane! Have you ever been made fun of for your style choices or fashion sense? Have you ever gotten the “you dress nice for a big girl”? All bodies can chime in.
