Steve Madden Poncho Coat

It is so hard to find coats that are stylish and fits my pear/apple shaped physique.

I took a trip to TJ Maxx and laid eyes on this beauty. It’s a poncho coat with buttons and a hood. Super warm. Has an adjustable cinched waist and it’s oh-so-stylish. It cost $89.

On this day, I was soooo tired. I didn’t feel like getting dressed or putting on any makeup. But Eden of Reel Clever Films had a booth at Eastern Market and I had to support. So, I dragged myself out of the house. Did a little beat. And went. Sometimes you just have to take that first step.

I am so thankful to have photographers in my life, especially since my camera gave out on me. Ugh! That’s another story.

But at the end of the day, these pictures came out super fab. Thanks boo.

An epic situation occurred this fall. I was called on to become the lead stylist with Reel Clever Films to work with an amazing cast of artists to create this bomb set of photos. I am super happy to finally be able to release these photos. I just want to thank the entire team, including the small business, Green & Glamorous of Canton and Flossy’s Suitcase of Highland Park, for hooking us up with some dope wardrobe.

Bedrock Beauty Leather was such a cool duo to work with. They are just starting their handmade luxury leather handbag business and wanted a sophisticated yet timeless touch to promote their new line.

I chose ten of Detroit’s top models and had Bedrock Beauty choose which one they thought would represent their bags with confidence and grace.

Drum rolllllllll….They chose the fierce Fatima Kojima

For the “Lady in Red” set. I wanted to do a monochromatic look. So I paired this Green & Glamorous long sleeve form fitting dress with the snakeskin clutch. Sprinkled a little sexy into the mix. And bam! An outfit and bag for the nighttime businesswoman.

For the second set, I wanted to mix it up and go in the opposite direction. I aimed for “European Swag”. We have texture, we have muted colors, and leg skin. Trendy yet very fall.

I was definitely feeling the “Ginger Rogers” vibe going on here.

Y’all know I like to dance. For me, dancing is such a major form of body positivity. Especially because once I started gaining the majority of my weight, I swore off dancing in public because of my massive wiggles and jiggles. I didn’t want people to judge me, stare at the blob dropping it like it’s hot. One day, I decided to dance again. Just as unapologetically as the other girls on the dance floor. I decided to go dancing while in LA during my trip. I’m walking around the venue scoping out the scene, in search of the hypest dancers. I see a big girl, a fat girl in a group with her thinner counterparts all dressed in bodycon dresses. The plus-size gal was modest and wore a faux fur vest. She wasn’t dancing, either. I made my way to her at once, tapped her on the shoulder, and said, “I love the way you rock that vest.” She looked over her shoulder with surprise, shock. So, I said it again. Her eyes widened and the biggest smile ran across her big cheeks. The fat friend. I was the fat friend. I am the fat friend. Who was picked over in a group of thinner women to be hit on, to be asked out, to be complimented. Invisible was what I felt like. A compliment goes a long way for marginalized bodies from very big to very thin. Have you ever felt invisible or the odd one around a certain group of friends or felt insecure? Also, do you compliment others? When’s the last time you’ve received a compliment? Any body type can chime in.
