So I got an email from Kendra Thornton (pictured below), a travel expert and owner of a PR firm in Chicago. Kendra has been featured on CBS, NBC, CW, FOX, and ABC. She also was on The Nate Show and The Tyra Banks Show! I was elated when she told me that she loved my blog…and my style. Kendra wanted me to be involved in “Kendra’s Fashion Challenge” where selected bloggers choose their favorite looks for her to wear during her upcoming trip to The Big Apple.

Here is what she wrote:

In a few weeks, my friends and I will be going to New York City for a time of fun and excitement. While we are there, we will be visiting some amazing places and having the time of our lives. On one special night, we will be at experiencing The Standard High Line Hotel. I have heard a number of good things about this place, and it will be great to be there. In order for me to stay in this beautiful NYC hotel, I need an outfit that will enhance my night out with my friends. I really am in need of some fashion counsel. That is why I have created “Kendra’s Fashion Challenge.” After all, I am a mother of three, and my priorities have been focused on them and my husband. I am not saying that is a bad thing, but I need some help with my wardrobe.

So, without further ado, here are the top three looks I have chosen for Kendra:

For outfit number two, I switched it up a little. I call this look business with a pop of color. I can envision Kendra in this for sure! The white a-line skirt shows just enough leg to make the guys wonder but not enough to become Miley’s twin. This ensemble can be worn with or without the blazer.

For look number three, I chose a wild card! If Kendra wants to pop out on a cool night with friends in NYC at an art gallery or catching a bite to eat, then she will definitely turn heads with this one. We have hot pink, high-waist, wide-legged pants with a sheer red ruffle blouse, and white pointy toe heels. And let’s not forget the bling.

 

Which look would you prefer for Kendra’s night out?

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.
