Q. What does being a “curvy” model mean to you?
Being a curvy model, to me, represents a lot. Because growing up, I didn’t have any curvy young women to look up to, to me it means self acceptance. Being on websites at a size I didn’t grow up thinking was ok is showing other young ladies, that its ok to be the way you were made. And thats the best part of modeling.
Q. What or whom inspires you the most?
My daughter inspires me. Up until she was born, I truly don’t believe I understood life. Ever since she was born, so many doors have opened up. I wake up daily next to the purest and most innocent thing in the world, my princess. She has made me reach for dreams I didn’t even know I had, and push for my goals harder than before. I want to be a positive role model for her growing up and teach her to love herself no matter what.
Q. Where are your favorite places to shop?
Oh I’ve become a true shopaholic in these past years lol. I can’t get over the Forever 21+ line and I’m still a HUGE Torrid lover. I have also started to migrate towards Nordstrom a bit, because it seems they have everything, from fantastic shoes, to cool outerwear and the best lingerie ever (other than Hips & Curves) 🙂 But by far, as most people have figured out, I LOVE the Gap. Best denim, shirts, sandals and the cutest kids clothes ever!
Q. What is your fashion “weakness?”
Jeans jeans jeans!! Lol Growing up I was never able to find the right jeans, and now that there are so many options, I find myself buying them all! I swear, most of my closet is denim. People are usually surprised to find that I don’t have that many shoes.
Q. What advice would you give to any new or aspiring “curvy” models?
Be yourself. At the end of the day, no matter how good your pictures are, what they will remember is your personality. Stay positive and clear about your goals and everything will fall into place.
And remember like the beautiful Aaliyah once said “If at first you don’t succeed, dust yourself off and try again” xoxo 🙂
