Not Photoshopped!

When Feel More Better approached me I knew I had to support.  They sent me two "not photoshopped" tees, one for me and one for a lucky winner.  It's a great message to not just women, but young girls as well.  It's important that we are happy with how we look today and not compare ourselves to unrealistic images.  If nothing else, I hope my blog does it's part in showing that you dictate how you look and feel about yourself, not society.  I don't talk about these topics a lot, but since the whole "fatkini" criticisms it really opened my eyes to the negativity to someone embracing who they are. Anyways, let's not get too heavy for a Friday night.  I got a hot date that I am getting ready for *wink.  

Outfit Logistics:  Top: Feel More Better $72, Leggings - Nakimuli $80, Bag - Mulberry for Target $50 (super old), Jacket - Archive Vintage $25, Earrings - Karla Deras Roman Luxe $66 (I know Ive been wearing the hell out of these, but I love them so), Shoes - Nordstrom  Rack $50
Quick story about these shoes --- I did actually fall off of them in the parking deck of my apartment and I skinned my knee.  I get the "I suck" award.  It's just now starting to heal.  Why am I always falling.  I have to do better!

Also,  I know you have been seeing the Chase Small Business messages going around.  I would love to open a plus size boutique and I am have joined the race.  Please take a moment and vote for me at https://www.missionsmallbusiness.com.  The business name is under none other than Garner Style.  I am 162 votes away from qualifying.  Voting ends tomorrow night.  Love you and thanks for your support!

Oh and enter to win the tee.  I know I just did one of these, but I'm trying to catch up with things after being out of town nearly two weeks. Enter through the rafflecopter. Ways to enter are  listed there.  Please note this is a cropped tee and I put a black tank underneath.  This tee is in a XXL and is pretty roomy.

  1. People can be so mean and judgemental.I'm all for self-love and it's sad how society is corrupting the minds of our youth. Life is much more than looks. Love your confidence. And cute outfit!

    Stay beautiful!

  2. What a fun and cute outfit!
    I love the print on the front of your leggings. It was unexpected to see that there was another color on the back. =)

  5. We are appalled when kids make fun of their bus driver using hurtful words about her appearance but we must share some of the responsibility. Our culture allows, even praises, berating others to make ourselves feel taller than them; of course the next generation is going to follow suit. You continue to inspire me to love myself and enjoy life which in turn makes it easier to be accepting of others around me.

  6. Your Leggins are awesome. I think that it is important for all of us to keep it in mind that the magazine covers and billboards, bus ads etc are Photoshopped and also for us to teach young girls to be aware of it...we often judge ourselves too harshly and measure ourselves again an unattainable standard as that said standard is not even real. Being confident in and loving a plus size body can be really hard and your confidence and awareness comes from with in, and it radiates. So thank you for reminding us that we "real" women are the only ones in the world who are not Photoshopped.

  9. Im in love with the shoes too bad when I went online to buy them there were no more available but guess just means that I have to go to the store with fingers crossed and hope they have a pair. Although sharing is caring I can have them on the weekend and you throughout the week, lol.

  16. I'd have tell my lady "no" if she asked for my opinion. I love the jacket and the shirt and I wish the rest of the outfit played off the black, blue and white from those articles of clothing. I like the idea of the two-sided leggings but I don't know about wearing form fitting, shiny gold back there - just makes me think "hoochie". Just my 2 cents. Love the blog!!

  17. Can you tell me if you ordered your leggings from the plus size section or the regular size? I want to order but not sure which would work best and I am shaped similarily to you. Please let me know. Thanks in advance.

    1. Hi Lady, I ordered the plus sized ones. With fabric like this you don't want the leggings to be overstretched so the you obstruct the print.
