Happy Monday???

Confession time, when I first started this blog, I had a goal. A goal to show people that you didn’t have to be sized in the lower single digits in order to have clothes fit you well and have style. I’m not saying that if you are smaller or thinner that you are irrelevant-god knows I’ve had many a moment with some of my thinnest clients where something that should have been a slam dunk was more of a trainwreck, but there just are more women I have met who have curves and have complete anxiety about dressing themselves because they aren’t a size 4.

So my goal was to make those women less anxious, and to remind them that clothes, no matter what bodytype you are, just need to fit well on your body. And that size doesn’t matter. At all. But also, I think I needed to remind myself.

I’ve struggled with my weight for as long as I can remember. It was hard being among the few of my friends who had a booty and more curves than everyone else when we were younger. But as I’ve gotten older I can say that I’ve accepted my shape and have tried hard to style myself in the most flattering of lights-cause guess what, even at my smallest, and despite me being only 5’1, I’m never gonna look like Rachel Bilson or any other tiny person. I’m Puerto Rican and Italian. That means I was destined to have curves before I was even out of diapers. And there is absolutely no way I can turn down a plate of pasta. Not happening.

Despite my acceptance of my body, I’m still human and a woman, and that means despite the best of my intentions, I would be amiss if I didn’t say I wasn’t a little envious of other bloggers who are able to fit into those pair of jeans I only dream about, and who can sit down and not worry about their stomachs overlap. So this blog is my own reality check and in turn I reality check those around me. We’re not happy with our bodies, some things we can do about it and some things are just genetics, but that doesn’t mean that we hide beneath clothes that only make us bigger than we are. It’s just the opposite, we find clothes that embrace our shapes and make us feel like rockstars. In this outfit I feel like I can kick ass and take names, what about yours?

Much love,
