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. 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!

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

  4. 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<(') Hoda | JooJoo Azad
