For some strange reason, after my divorce I never felt like I could wear white again. I mean I know that the ‘white dress’ on your wedding day is a tradition but I believe in that tradition. And after all the pain, shame and heartache I experienced I just felt like I wasn’t worthy enough to wear white ever again, not just on my wedding day.
And as Maury Povich might say….The lie detector has determined….that is a lie!!!
I know some might find it strange the healing that has come from not only my emotional journey to healing from divorce but also the healing that has come as part of my modelling career. As a model you are required to ‘play a role’ at times to capture all the beauty and the attitude of the garment you are wearing. That means that I’ve had the opportunity to step outside my box when it comes to fashion and try new things.
One of those things was feeling beautiful and worthy in white once again. We aren’t talking about a wedding dress – I’ve recently done that and that was such a beautiful and healing experience too (Check out my blog on the dress from Azazie). But, we’re talking about a dress I could wear out on the town, to a special event, or, hey maybe even a date….some day.
Add on top of the whole “divorced” stigma is the ‘rule’ that curvy women shouldn’t wear white either. Well I guess we’ve busted both those lies now haven’t we?
At a recent photo shoot with SexyPlus Clothing (located at 5100 Maingate Drive in Mississauga), I put on one of Joseph Ribkoff’s newest additions to the store, The Winter White dress. And as soon as I put it on I felt divine. This curve hugging number is elegant and sexy with a touch of gold detail around the neckline. The fit and fabric are of the highest quality and I’m pretty sure my curves instantly got a sassier attitude once this number adorned my curves. We paired this with a versatile vest from the Point Zero Curvy line, a leopard clutch and nude heels from Nine West.
As always, SexyPlus Clothing gives women option after option when it comes to beautiful fashion and paired with Joseph Ribkoff who delivers an exquisite dress for the curvy woman, you will fall in love with your curves all over again or possibly for the first time and if that’s the case – my heart is truly happy for you.
There are no rules when it comes to wearing what you want to wear because it’s what you want. Don’t let the lies like I believed stop you from anything you want to do. This doesn’t just apply to fashion, more importantly it applies to your life and your dreams.
