The day after

Hi lovely readers,

Hope you had a great weekend! Mine was awesome.
As some of you may know I was a finalist for a Dutch pageant: Miss Plus Size Fashion 2011.Last sunday was the big day where me and 16 other curvaceous ladies got to challenge the secular definition of beauty. This is the only Dutch pageant I know, who don't exclude participants by their size, age or race. Everyone has an equal chance.

In this shot you see Simone, with the other winning ladies. Pamela in a teal dress, which got her a second place. Finally but not least, Lisette,  she got the third place.
The judge panel included a catwalk coach, a Dutch TV personality and the chairwoman of the MPS Fashion organisation. They we're looking for a plus size woman who could bring out a message, to be more specific, her message to the world. I'm glad I wasn't in their place to make the cut, because my goodness all the participants we're beautiful. And they all had a message. But the judges made a great decision. After all the remaining participants didn't lose: we all got fourth place, including me :D

There again the core message: we all are winners.
It takes courage to stand on stage and speak out.
It takes courage to love YOU without guilt.
It takes courage to do things (like walk in heels on a catwalk, uhu, I did)
you would never do and do it with pride.

Me and my catwalk sista Francien were both sponsored by More2Be.
A young trendy plus size store.
 I was wearing a highwaisted denim skirt by Veto. 
Moi and Maureen
I have to give credit to Maureen
the stylist who showed me this denim skirt in the first place.
I wasn't sure at first but she convinced me to rock it at the finals.
 I'm glad she persuaded me. 
When I paired the skirt with New Look black wedges and my very
trusted Yours leopard tights. I tell you ladies, I live in those leopard tights.
Well I felt like a Rock Star.

The second look was a summer on the beach.
Maureen named my style "classic with an edge". 
What do you think?

In this picture you see Mandy.
A young student from The Hague with such
an one-of-a-kind presence.
She embraced not alone her curves
but also her own unique self. 
Not strange that's she's one of the
summer models for GETS Fashion
Finally I'm so proud of all the participants. 
We showed diversity within beauty. 

Spread the curvy love.
