The title a little much? Nah.
This skirt and I managed to make it onto xoJane and now everyone keeps asking how they can also cover their thighs with religious iconography. I'll do you one better: I'll tell you how you can cover your thighs with religious iconography for free. First, a story:
I have incredible friends. Probably more incredible than yours. Sorry I'm not sorry. The photo shoot used for this post (and to give my page a face lift) was a joint effort of the incredibly talented photographer Liora, magical makeup artist Jessica, and plus-size designer Liz. Yes, I'm friends with rock stars.
Liz really is quite the kick ass bitch and the person who single handedly kick started my body love journey. Years (and years) ago, Liz was the only one designing fatshion for the runway in Tucson. After she asked me to walk for her... well, my life has never been the same. She has now opened an exclusively plus-size boutique (that hosts female artists and kitschy jewelry too!) and is launching her online shop on June 1st. Oh, and she runs a body positive book club complete with booze.
God. I wanna be (maybe on?) her.
AND she's giving away a Guadalupe skirt (in the winners size) so you can own a little sexy holiness yourself.
All you need to do to get your name in the kick ass lottery is "like" CandyStrike's Facebook page. Leave a comment letting me know you did AND what kind of top you would wear with the skirt if you won. I wore the sheer black crop top pictured above, but I'd love to hear what you would come up with!
Comment away, and make sure you leave an email address that I can reach you at!
(These are optional, so feel free to do as many or as little as you like. Be sure to leave a separate comment for each one!)
