A little fire and ice... Oh it feels so nice

This is dedicated to every girl in the world that has ever felt insecure. 
As promised, Love Never Fails first fashion post...


Before you go any further, I would like to explain my reasoning for doing this. The reason I decided to hop on the "take-pictures-of-your-daily-attire-and-pretend-it's-cool" bandwagon is because I wanted to show women that you don't have to be a certain size to do this, you don't have to have a certain style, or look a certain way. Ladies, you are beautiful. Stop feeling like you aren't good enough for things. You don't have to have expensive clothing, a certain look, or a specific figure. All you need is to know that you are wonderful, and the world is yours.

PS.. You will notice a time difference {aka, dark and not dark outside} in the photos. We had a little technical difficulties so we had to stop for an intermission {also aka, charge the battery}.




Top: New York and Company. Jeans: Gap. Shoes: White House Black Market. Belt: Francesca's. Watch: Francesca's.

Well, there you have it friends. Hope you enjoyed the total awkwardness and enjoyment bursting through the pictures! And here is your totally awesome photographer.

Yep, totally awesome. 
We had some difficulties, played around with poses, and laughed at ourselves too much. The photos are amateur but.. we will get better :) 



Remember ladies, don't get discouraged when you open that closet door. Your style is perfect, because it's your own. And your size is beautiful because it's on you. 
AND YOU ARE GORGEOUS. 
Now start acting like it! 
Love you all so very much!

Absolutely LOVE this ♥ And if i may ask...what does your tattoo stand for?

Pia said...

You did wonderful! :) I love the post.

I'm thinking about doing fashion posts for a while now (I even wished for a tripod for Christmas to take the pictures), but I'm not so sure yet if I can pull the whole thing off.
But who knows? Maybe I'll have the courage to do this soon.
