When bloggers get together, it gets a little crazy. We take random usies.

We pretend to act cool. Haha.

SAM_3769-0

We even stick our tongues out.

But deep down, we genuinely share a love for fashion and art. We strive to inspire through our creations.

We come from different backgrounds.

Somehow we just fit together.

Empowerment: Fashion Blogger Style

Life is funny. The right people kind of just fall into your lap when you least expect it. I met these crazy fashion bloggers at different times, but it is like we’ve known each other for years.

I’ve been blogging for about 2+ years now and didn’t even know there were other local bloggers like myself floating around the city. We’ve bounced around from fashion show to fashion show, colliding at the last step. And this happened.

We decided to do a silver and black themed shoot, geared towards empowerment, strength, and entrepreneurship. Basically, everything we aspire to be and want to inspire others to partake in. Scott M., Worldiction, a local art photographer allowed our creative juices to flow without interruption.

Each of our personalities and styles are different, yet we all have a common goal of wanting to empower each other through our blogs and vlogs as well as our audiences by encouraging creativity and individuality, a strong sense of self.

This year has been a whirlwind of successes and failures. But as I keep pushing and meeting new people who inspire me every moment, I find the failures shrinking. Life is about living through our experiences and finding out what we’re supposed to learn from them. I am thankful to have a set of empowering women–and men–who push me to be something more, something greater than myself.

Amor De Fashion Show IV

Screenshot_2015-07-27-15-06-00I grabbed a few of my fashion blogger friends.

Below are a few of my favorite looks of the show:

SAM_2279I really like the contrast of the light blazer with the dark denim.

SAM_2275Neon trim and bold prints.

SAM_2226Again I am digging the bright on bright look. And check out that skull clutch.

SAM_2229I tend to check outfits for the details. Can you spot the one’s I like?

SAM_2264You can never go wrong in a cat-woman bodysuit.

#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.
