| I was asked recently if it was hard being a woman in 2018 in the US?
I answered passionately, “This is the best time to be a woman.” All the strong women before me have fought hard to bring me to the world I now live in.
We finally have a voice.
No longer are we the silent partner behind men, we walk beside them as well as in front of them when needed.
We are bold, strong and still woman.
I say I live in the best time because this freedom is still new, the feeling of possibility is electric.
Women are binding together, uplifting each other, voicing that women of all shapes, sizes, races, sexual preferences etc are all equal and beautiful and have value.
It was not always this way.
I can remember as a girl an environment when women still saw each other as competition.
It is now “cool” to uplift other women. To support them. We even have main stream fashion lines creating clothing whose message is #girlgang .
How amazing is that!
I’m so excited to be a part of this movement.
Let’s show the world what happens when women are allowed to love the world without restrictions. We still have a lot of issues to overcome #rapeculture and womens rights in other countries and I am excited to see what my voice can do to change these issues.
But at this moment I am excited and grateful! Let’s make some moves girls. |
If I had to use only one word to describe myself it would be passionate. And this right here is one of my biggest passions.
Fashion in general makes me happy but plus size fashion is what really sets my soul on fire.
For most of us (not only plus size) our body issues come up when we are shopping because as soon as you can't find your size, it doesn't fit right or something doesn't look how you want it to, you automatically feel like you are the problem.
Speaking from my end of the scale us plus size ladies are often left feeling like we are "too big to be allowed". It's like a "you can't sit with us" scene except it's real life, it happens too often, it effects us not just until the end of a movie but for our whole lives.
I want everyone to be able to sit together. I don't want those racks of clothes to leave anyone feeling a sense of shame or hatred towards their bodies. I want to have a choice and decide for myself if I will wear something even though I'm fat and not have that decision made by someone else. I would also really love to have options, a lot of options.
I am hoping to get so much more involved in the plus side of fashion because "people with passion can make the impossible happen". What is your passion? I would love to hear all about it.
