(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.

I find myself falling into the fear of the stereotype of becoming the Angry, Loud Black Girl especially when it comes to business. And, especially when speaking to white men and women and NBPOC. When disagreeing, I find myself searching for non-aggressive words and phrases as not to fulfill that stereotype of Black girls are always difficult. I find myself not speaking up or letting things slide because any dissatisfaction I show will automatically make me “a bitch”. I find myself using blanket terms like “not to be difficult but...” and “I’m not trying to be a bitch but maybe...” Seems like when I assert myself, when I am straightforward, I am seen as loud, aggressive, angry, ghetto, uncultured. But when anyone else says what they want with directness then they are assertive, passionate, a great leader. Closed mouths don’t get fed. I haven’t made it this far playing it safe. I’m a Black Muslim, a triple minority in a marginalized body smashing it in several fields that hadn’t dared seen anyone who looks like me as a strong contender. As worthy. I walk into these spaces with as much confidence as a mediocre white man. So, fight me. 🤷🏽‍♀️ Do you find yourself “codeswitching” in certain spaces? Do you feel the need to be the anti-stereotype for your group/culture/religion/sex? What’s your take on this angry, Black woman stereotype? All welcome to chime in, I’d like to hear from different perspectives. 📷 @visualunicorn Fit: @theplusbus #detroitblogger #psootd #plussize #instafashion #bodypositive #bgki #effyourbeautystandards #pizzasisters4lyfe #blackgirlswhoblog #londonblogger #psfashion #muslimgirl #fatacceptance #seventeen #selflove #turbanista #honormycurves #bodydysmorphia #instabeauty #intersectionalfeminism #fashionblogger #eatingdisorderrecovery #editorial #hijabi #modestfashion #holidaystyle #streetstyle #fempreneur
