A short while ago, I already revealed on Facebook that I’m part of the → #MeineSchönheit (#MyBeauty) campaign by Dove. It’s a huge honor to be amongst these incredibly amazing and individual women, each one of them with their own kind of beauty, even though our society tries to make them – us – feel like we’re not really a part of it. You’ll never please everybody, I’ve already said that very often, and it is definitely not your number one goal. Your number one goal should only be this: feel beautiful for yourself. Because your beauty is your choice. You don’t have to run after an ideal of beauty or femininity, an ideal which is unreachable for most of us and which we really don’t have to chase after. It’s about yourself, your uniqueness, your character, about how you feel beautiful. So my message of today’s post in collaboration with Dove is:
“My Beauty, My Say.”
And since there’s an amazing video accompanying the campaign, please watch it before you scroll down for the rest of this post…
I can definitely relate to this strong message and that’s why I’m so proud to be a part of it. I’m → representing “being plus size AND fashionable”. Because it’s still an issue that people say you can’t be fashionable when you’re fat. You can’t be stylish with “a body like that”. “Fashion is just for skinny people.” And here I am – ready to prove them wrong. ;) Or at least inspire everyone to think it all over and forget these thoughts. Fashion is for everyone!
At the beginning of this post, you can see one of my “classic” photos of my outfit posts. Today, I want to do a “Get ready with me…”, show you how this look came into being and talk about how I found my style, my way to express myself through fashion – my beauty.
