Today is my dad's birthday โค๏ธ and yesterday I took the day off to go out for breakfast and walk across a bridge with him. He loves bridges, partly because he studied civil engineering in Mexico. He gave up that career when he immigrated my family to ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ and has worked in construction ever since. Yesterday we talked about our president, racism, ICE fear, dreamers, white privilege, feminism, and something that really struck a cord with me, which was the opposite of white privilege. There's a lot of sayings going around social media that go along the lines of "if you're not doing something then you're privileged." This is true for some people, but maybe we should also to take into account those of us who have always known how racist this country is. My dad is upset, but as you can see from his aura in my last post, he's doing ok because this country being an uphill battle for him and anyone else who isn't white isn't necessarily news to him. I'm not trying to speak for anyone besides myself or attempting to make black lives and brown lives equal, I'm just speaking for what he and I discussed yesterday. I think that we need to account for others like him when we talk about where we are as a country. They're not shocked by the news - they agree what's happening is terrible, but they're also going on with their lives, without protesting or writing Facebook posts everyday or contacting their senators, and of course they're angry but they already knew this country wasn't ever looking out for them and have been living under a state of fear since day 1 of living in ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ. I talked to my dad about how I had pushed those feelings aside throughout my life because I thought that as a lighter skin, first-generation immigrant, I would have a different experience than him - I belonged in this country and this country cared about me - and yes, our experiences are significantly different. But on Nov. 9, I was reminded that that wasn't fully the case and still isn't. I'm not looking to sit still and do nothing, but I also am very aware that I don't have the power that white-privileged and well-connected Americans who have lived in this country for generations do. :: sigh ::

So many inspirational women on this shoot for @glamourmag September issue. If you don't already follow @cameronrussell you should because she's talking about things that I hope finally brings some real changes to the fashion industry. It's sooooo refreshing to hear someone with a bigger voice bring things to light that I wholeheartedly agree with and have been afraid of bringing up outside of my peer-to-peer bitch fests with other women in the industry. ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ | photographer @francestulkhart | stylist @jennalyonsnyc | makeup @erinleesmith | hair @rubi_jones Also, these kids were adorable ๐Ÿค—

For the last three days I've been pausing randomly and thinking "2 yrs ago I would have been in active labor for x amount of time and wouldn't have given birth to Gigi for another x number of hrs" I guess an 86 hr labor does that to you? Plus your firstborn? And maybe PTSD? bc that's real. Gigi's birthday is today and as of now I want to cherish how vividly I still remember exactly where I was, what I was feeling, who was with me, and who I was as a human at every step of the way of her birth. Making and raising babies is wild.

Always beautiful and incredible team @aceandjig | model @austriaulloa | photo @jasonehardwick | stylist @aprilhughes1 | makeup @lisa_campos | hair me
