the moral wardrobe: a little red dress

Details: Dress - c/o Synergy via FloydFest; Shoes - thrifted; Earrings - thrifted; Blazer - thrifted

People often don't realize that I have insecurities about my figure because they assume that my relatively small frame guards me from body-shaming. But it definitely feels like a risk to wear things that are clingy around the hips. I wore this Synergy dress in the FloydFest sustainable fashion show over the summer and they kindly gave it to me afterwards. What I enjoyed most about my modeling adventures this year is how they forced me out of my comfort zone. I got to pretend I was someone else for those quick strides down the catwalk, and that was enough to help me realize I was less boxed in than I thought. 

Here's to embracing our bodies and stepping out of our comfort zones!

  1. Your figure is flawless, what are you saying! Red also looks so beautiful on you--it was so nice of them to let you keep the dress you modeled! I want to see photos of you on the runway!! :D

    1. Thank you! I can't manage to find any runway photos even though there were at least three photographers present, but I took some closeups here: http://stylewiseblog.blogspot.com/2014/07/floydfest-style-revolution.html

      And you can watch me walk in a crazy feather gown here: http://youtu.be/-hz0LCmnoYg

      I couldn't tilt my head down at all or the headdress would have fallen off.

  2. You look beautiful! I had two Synergy dresses that hugged my curves and I felt really beautiful when I wore them.

    1. I'm glad I got the chance to try some Synergy dresses on and see them in person because the fabric is much nicer than I expected.

  3. YES YES YES to "Here's to embracing our bodies and stepping out of our comfort zones!" I actually have apost coming up in a day or two about this because I wore something that I usually don't. I'm the same way about my body too, I always avoid hip hugging clothes but you look INCREDIBLE! That red dress is fierce, and I love the blazer too!
