I’m venturing way out of my comfort zone with this outfit. I would never in a million years wear something that exposes my midriff, but something told me to get this crop top and do it. Once I put it on with this outfit, I can’t tell you the empowerment I felt. I felt girlish, sexy, seductive, and beautiful. I’ve battled with my weight my entire life – even going as far as having an eating disorder when I was in high school (as I mentioned in this post). Needless to say I’ve never felt comfortable in my own skin until now. Yes, there are things about my body I’d like to change, but only because I want to be healthier. Not because I feel the need to for aesthetics. I love my curves. It’s taken me a good while to love them, and having a handsome husband who thinks I’m gorgeous is definitely a boost. This crop top, and many other plus size fashion items, is just another addition to my comfort with myself.
Now let’s discuss this chunky gold chain link statement necklace. I don’t know what it was about it, but it called my name. It’s like nothing I own, which is why when Emitations reached out to me, I had to choose it. Emitations features so many different types of jewelry, I could literally spend an entire day perusing their site. From sterling silver rings to stud earrings, they’ve got everything but the kitchen sink!
