Growing up, I used to dress to be invisible. I didn’t feel good about myself, so I really didn’t want anyone to look at me. I would wear baggy jeans with t-shirts, throw my hair into a messy ponytail, and out I went. I didn’t think about fashion because I felt so excluded by it, and I felt so bad about myself that I just wanted to look as unremarkable as possible.

ALL that has changed now. I dress for ME. I wear what I like. I dress to express who I am to the world. If someone doesn’t like how I look merely because of my size, I DON’T CARE. I will make whatever fashion statement I feel like, and that’s what this outfit is all about!!!!!

I would have never even dreamed of wearing print on print like this before becoming confident with myself, let alone this kick-ass coat. I absolutely love this look. Don’t be afraid to experiment or make a statement with your fashion. Demand to be looked at – because you know what? You ARE remarkable. Own it!
