    OoTD – The Lace Top

    Posted in Uncategorized by
    I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t a bit unsure if I was really confident enough to walk out in something so exposing. I’ve admired see-through lace tops for so long but I wasn’t quite sure if I could pull it off. When I put this outfit together and finally saw it in the flesh, I felt a bit silly for having any doubts to begin with. Here’s a tip about clothing and fashion. You don’t need a certain body type to pull it off. You don’t need to be a size 6 to look good in form fitting clothing. All you really need is the confidence to wear whatever it is you love and appreciate it on your own.

    OoTD – The Rushed

    Posted in Uncategorized by
    I was speaking to a friend the other day about how I tend to only wear my clothing once after purchasing it. I remember when I was younger how silly that idea seemed to me and I swore to myself that I’d never be that person. Needless to say, I was a bit disappointed in myself when I realized thats exactly the kind of person I’d become. After I completed a long, tasking project, I threw on an old dress I purchased from Asos and quickly tossed on some accessories.

    OoTD – The Hotel Shoot

    Posted in Uncategorized by
    I had the absolute pleasure of doing my very first hotel photoshoot last night. I’m starting a very new, exciting job and I’m going to be getting extremely creative with it. I wanted to start off with a very elegant, simple shoot and I was pleased to find the perfect dress stashed away in my closet. 
    I remember the day I purchased this black dress like it was yesterday. I was on the Atkins diet, about 30lbs down and it was my inspiration dress. You know, that dress you buy as inspiration to continue dropping pounds? I tried it on and it amplified my “problem areas”. It made me feel uncomfortable but I swore to myself I’d reach a day when I felt beautiful in it. I’m glad to say that day has come. Nothing much has changed about my body since that day, in fact I think I’m heavier than I was then. However, one very important thing has changed about me and thats my mindset. I’ve stopped worrying if my belly is visible, whether or not I could hide my back fat or the best possible way to stand to reduce the appearance of my extra weight. I’ve embraced who I am and emphasize every inch of my beautiful body. I don’t love myself regardless of my fat. I love every inch of myself, including my fat and suddenly wearing my skin tight, little black dress isn’t so terrifying anymore.
