The Simple Bodysuit.


My relationship with clothes is equal parts inspiring and scary. My outfits are my words; my photos are my diary. Where there's happiness there's inspiration, and where there's doubts, insecurities, sadness or anything in between, there's the difficulty of getting dressed in the morning. 

This look is one of the rawest entries, because it comes from a place of both inspiration and doubt - or rather, the burst of inspiration following the moments of doubt. There's an entire list of things that society expects me not to be wearing as a bigger girl, so stepping out in something as skintight as this simple bodysuit is seen as much more of a social commentary than a representation of myself.

It's interesting to think about all the different things clothes can be for people: shelter, a fashion statement, a social commentary, and sometimes a political battleground, particularly if you're a woman. 

I can see how this one look could turn out to be all of the above - or just a simple means of breaking free of all the labels and societal expectations associated with it. Because at the end of the day, dressing is an art. People can create their own interpretations of what it means, but you know your canvas better than anyone else.
