Sometimes putting on a pretty dress can change your mood quick. That is what this @leotanewyork dress did for me while working at @gwynniebee this month. There are times I don't feel so pretty and it's hard to get out of that space. It's okay and perfectly valid to have those kind of days. What counts is that you don't stay in that negative space.
I don't care what anyone says; fashion is so personal and for me, it has made me love myself unconditionally, feel empowered and most of all, liberated. To be able to choose what you want to wear despite what anyone says is a true act of activism. To exist and take space in a world where fat bodies are constantly judged is an act of activism. Every day I walk out the house is an act of activism.
This is why I enjoy every moment and every pretty dress i put on. It empowers me and keeps me going. On this day, this dress reminded me of my beauty and not to stay in that space because the story I was telling myself wasn't true. It reminded me of my beauty.
