So yeah, this happened...
I kept it a secret surprise but a little over a month ago I was approached by Grazia magazine to work on a fashion shoot with them! As Grazia is one of my favorite magazines, I was more than happy to work with them, this was a dream for me to come true! I've never professionally modeled before but everyone really made me feel comfortable, they were so nice (
The concept of the article was to show that size does not matter and that you can rock trends, whether you're a size 6 (fellow blogger Suzanne) or a 16. This article focused on the trends for this Spring and Summer and I really love the outcome, a six(!) page spread!!!
Apart from the fact that I can now check this achievement of my Fashion Bucket List, it's the message that really counts: "Size is not a factor and you can look stylish and beautiful at any size." A message that I, and a lot of other plus size bloggers try to carry out every day. To encourage and inspire others, to love yourself regardless of your size. To be happy the way you are. Thank you for helping in carrying out this message, Grazia. I'm hoping more Dutch fashion magazines will follow with this positive movement. Okay, enough "mushy" stuff, on to the pics!
For the Dutchies, this edition recently came out and is now available for purchase!
