Plus size Winter lookbook


My Very first Lookbook video. Yay


Before I get into this post, I must apologise for the poor quality of the  images. Self photography is very difficult so I used stills from my look book video which you can watch at the end on this post. By the way, did you know I have a you tube channel? Check it out and if you like what you see, go ahead and subscribe here.Apart from the fact that it's my very first, this look book is very sentimental to me because something very significant to my natural hair journey happened  to me while I was filming the first outfit. The look if inspired by the free-fro look from one of Kavuli's posts, and while I was fluffing my hair, I felt this very sudden and inexplicable wave of affection for it, something that has never happened to me before. If your are a reader on this blog, You will know that I diagnosed myself with black inferiority complex in this post so this feeling was a huge milestone for me. I'm so glad that moment was captured and I hope you'll be able see it in my video. This entire post is dedicated to my hair. I love you fro! Knots and all.
