#plusisequal


Let's kick off Fashion Week with some body positivity.

Having a career in fashion is rewarding because I'm celebrated for being me, and for my individuality. But let's not forget that we should celebrate everything about ourselves...including our figures. Fashion isn't about size. It's about feeling like the most awesome version of yourself, regardless of the number on the tag. I am all about the ongoing movement to celebrate everyone's beauty and uniqueness--every weight and every height is marvelous.

There is such a stark lack of equal representation of many sectors (i.e. race, gender, and especially plus sizes) in fashion and the media, when everyone deserves to live freely and happily with absolutely nothing to hide, and in a world where we are seen and celebrated. The Plus Is Equal campaign calls for a change in the industry, and I'm so glad they're doing something about it and standing up for what's right. It's so disheartening to see plus-sized bloggers/public figures/HUMANS in general berated just for the way they look. It's incredibly stupid, and also painful, because that's just the way these people are and there is nothing wrong about that. For instance, people insulted Kim Kardashian for the way she looked at the VMAs recently...and she is pregnant. Even after addressing how psychologically torturous the bullying that resulted from her first pregnancy was, she still had to endure it this second round. Can nobody catch a break?

Let's not fat shame, please. Not now. Not ever.

Make a difference, join the conversation, and spread the word. Plus Is Equal is a good place to start.

  1. I think one of the best thing ever for a blog reader, personally, is seeing the bloggers I follow religiously use their voice as a way to spread positivity, just as you have here, Eugenie. Go you! #plusisequal #stopbodyshaming

    (Yes, I know the hashtags don't work, but I'm vibin' it.)

  4. I've been thinking about how few plus sized bloggers I've seen and it's funny that you brought it up here! I've been following you for a while and I really appreciate how you not only focus on fashion and cool things but also movements like this that matter.

  5. Self confidence is something everyone should be able to enjoy, not just a certain shape or size. I'm glad you're willing to step out and advocate for movements like that. I'm glad your influence goes to positive things and empowering more people.

It's so refreshing to see someone with an influence and the ability to reach a wide spread of people talking about real issues in the industry and bringing attention to things that so many people want to hide away from and act like its not happening. Thank you for posting this, thank you for supporting and empowering all people <3
