I was so honored to have my last picture featured on the homepage this week and to “earn some stripes.” My deepest thanks to Chictopia and everyone who voted and left sweet comments. And thanks as always to everyone who posts such great, inspirational photos.
So here is my ode to stripes :) The magic hour reflection shadow sure does add some curves eh?
The exaggeration reminds me of my skinny vs. fat mirror theory, pardon the bluntness. So, I always keep a “skinny” mirror around (you know, those extra flattering ones) and here is why: I think women of all shapes are beautiful, absolutely, and women tend to be so critical of ourselves and we think that we don’t look as good as we do. I know we all do it (I have yet to meet an exception), not just about our sizes, but in general; we often don’t accept and celebrate us just the way we are. So why not balance out that critical voice inside with a little extra flattery?
