It's been a minute. I wish I could say "Happy Spring" but, it's snowing here in NYC today. Lift us up in prayer. Anyway, I just wanted to stop by and show you guys how much fun I had recently with my textured skirt and coat. Texture is another element of fashion that I'm currently exploring. It just adds a level of uniqueness and sass. When you wear textured pieces, there is always a fine line between chic and overdone. The pastel colors really helped me strike the appropriate balance.

This was a nice break from my usual days of grabbing whatever is clean. I'm so focused on doing well at school and work, fashion is usually the last thing on my mind. For the sake of my sanity I recently decided to enter a model casting for Full Figured Fashion Week that will take place in June.

This is such a huge step outside of my comfort zone. I questioned my decision so many times but, at the end of the day this is what life is all about. Growth requires us to step outside of makes us comfortable. The journey to self-acceptance is not an easy one, filled with so many bumps and bruises. I'm determined to love myself and build my confidence, this is only the beginning. The tour stops in NYC this weekend, wish me luck.
