I don't feel comfortable doing that, but there are probably several hundred thousand other women in the world. Women of different ages and nationalities, with different social statuses and financial statements. But we all wondered at least once this week "What am I wearing?". And the question becomes more and more irritating as you outnumber size 42. I've been over it for a few years, and as I get further away from it, it's getting harder and harder to find nice clothes to buy. colorful, fashionable and suitable for my age. Clothing size had become a taboo subject. I didn't fit into the S, M and L classics, but I didn't have to say it out loud because I was afraid I wouldn't find my place in society. I was kind of incognito mode. I did not discuss this subject and instead was tolerated. And I don't mean my friends. My friends are cool and open. Open to listen and support you. Unfortunately, this world is not just made up of my friends. Or at least it wasn't long. Because the internet and the blog helped me to discover beautiful people who, although they are many kilometers away, can be very close to you. And so I realized that a group of nice friends formed around my blog who ask me for advice and who in turn help me with advice, who learns from me and from whom I also learn. Women who inspire me and who support me to say out loud things that other young people like me may not have had the courage to do for a long time.
No, I'm not going to call myself that fashionista because they are not. I've never been and I won't turn into one overnight. I'm just a young woman who wants to dress pretty & chic. I want to dress correctly, beautiful, colorful, according to my context, figure and age. I want to forget about the dark clothes, with bag-type cuts that cover absolutely everything. I'm sure I have good body parts too. And I'm sure you have too. We just have to discover them (figuratively and sometimes, literally).
And I started this collaboration with THAT because I felt openness from the brand. This opening translates into a wide range of pieces and outfits that appeal to the public 42+, modern cuts that emphasize the silhouette and very high quality materials. So I started visiting this store more and more often. Then I came to me. That happened last summer, but I wasn't ready to reveal myself, so only a month ago I had the courage to go to them and tell them "Let's do this project! We do it for me and for women like me. ” I am happy that I made this decision, although I am very excited to show you the first pictures.
How to be a model when in fact you are not a model.
I chose my outfits myself. And the photos are taken by Miruna Minculescu from Photographer TAU Studio. Miruna and I are very good friends from college. Very little is said, but sometimes there are no words to describe the connection between some people. Surely you know what I'm talking about.
I didn't choose to take her pictures because she is uber-talented and knows how to photoshoot pictures like no other, but to feel comfortable. And I did well because after a few unsuccessful shots in which I was rigid and tried to imitate the posture of a model, he told me "Bub, you're not like that. Behave normally and do what you would normally do if you wore that outfit. ”
So below you will find some photos in which I behave naturally, goofy, when editing that did not use liquify. You will see me with a belly, cellulite, thick arms and everything I would normally try to hide. But that's how I am, and until I can change that, I'll enjoy life, the colorful clothes, and the people around me.
Below I show you some of my favorite pieces from the spring-summer 2015 C&A collection. Pieces that I wear often and in which I feel very good.
