I love clothes. and shoes and bags and makeup and the list goes on. I have always been this way. My first drawings were of princesses in fabulous gowns lol.
Lately, I don't know what is going on with me, but I am feeling good!
Perhaps it has to do with being back on track here with Spark, and feeling confident in my self and abilities.
Maybe i have finally started embracing my curviness in a new way. It helps reading the blogs that I follow- check them out, girlwithcurves and Stephanie Zwicky, aka big beauty. And of course, MarieDenee, thecurvyfashionista.com(hence my title).
Its so refreshing to see real women, with lumps and bumps, still looking fantastic, no airbrush required! Its so wonderful to see women so comfortable in their own bodies, it cant help but ooze out into my soul!
So today, I did something for me again. A local Redken salon was looking for models for a hair "lookbook". It required one full Saturday and a prep hair appointment, all free. What I said? Free hairstyle? Probably color too? and trendy? And a potential fashion shoot? The girlie girl in my head was screaming at me to let her out.......and I did!
Self doubt, negative thoughts. You're too chubby, you're too old for this, what the heck do I wear???
Answer: curvy girls need representation too dammit! And old? If not now, when? Go for it! and cmon, I know you have "rock star romance" in that enormous closet.
So I donned a shiny metallic tank, a black blazer, dark skinny jeans and some kickass black ankle boots. As for my glorious plentiful hair, I "rocked" my natural waves and did my bangs.
I nailed it. I am in the shoot!
Apparently I have good hair taste, the one hairdresser told me she wouldn't have to do much to get the look they were going for! sorry if I am bragging. I thought maybe my 'do was getting stale!
So I get to have a color "refresh", a gloss treatment, and perhaps some violet or other funky color put in(or temporary hairpiece). I cannot wait!
Hopefully the shoot goes well and I get a good pic( it will belong to them of course, but maybe I can update my profile?) we will see!
I've even begun dreaming of a blog of my own. Perhaps not as ambitious as the amazing aforementioned ladies, but a blog nonetheless. Canada needs more curvy blogs! Why not?
Just ask yourself that next time you are thinking of going for something. And tell that little voice with all the reasons why not to shut the hell up! She doesnt know what's good for her lmao
