Everything made me feel like I belonged

Keywords: fashion

I was secretly very miserable. Behind the smiles, the nice wardrobe, and daily posts, I was unhappy. I was putting all this pressure on myself to look perfect, to be Instagram famous. I would spend far too long photoshopping every single feature I thought made me ugly, eventually heavily relying on beauty filters. Though I mostly received amazing compliments and was often featured on Liz Lisa’s Instagram, I hyper-fixated on the negative comments I would receive. Being told by random trolls that I’m too skinny, my nose is crooked, my head is too big, my face is too photoshopped, my face is not photoshopped enough, it was too much.

I want the community to be filled with people of colors that meld together

When did fashion become less about matching colors and more about ludicrous design? As a former model, I should know what I’m talking about. Some of the designs they make you wear are out there and extremely unappealing, but I defend them because they’re pieces of art. But general clothing is a different story. People are trying to take the rules of the runway and apply them to our daily wardrobe, and that isn’t how things work, guys. My wardrobe is chock full of primary, secondary and base colors that all go together, no matter what Instagram model might tell you.

this purpley floral romper. It was a GREAT haul from St. Vincent de Paul! Actually, it was United Cerebral Palsy Thrift Store. But ‘haul’ and ‘store’ don’t rhyme.

«I never thought I wanted to style Sunniva raunchy just to shock people. But I remember once I made her wear a shirt that turned out to be way more see through under the stage lights than we’d thought – a bit like art by accident» muses Tekla Lou.
