To show girls younger than me that being curvy is beautiful.

Thank God for waking up another day & brush my teeth.

Love biker shorts
Do you have any advice for designers in the plus-size industry when it comes to look, feel, and fit?
Plus size/curvy don’t all come in one size. Some of us have apple shapes or pears, we need a variety of different styles and cuts to jeans and dresses as well!
What are some of your favorite modeling poses to flatter your curves?
Defending a hand on the hip to accentuate your waist
Must-have fashion accessory?
Shoesss and handbag always
What advice would you give to women hoping to get into the industry?
To never give up or let one bad day or shoot affect you outlook as a whole ! It’s a process and one that takes a lot of hard work and growth. To not be so hard on yourself!
Anything else you want to share about yourself?
I love the beach.
What was your favorite part about the shoot?
Loved the more creative shots where we could play around with props and different concepts.
What did you love about working with Sydney's Closet?
The energy of the shoot was amazing! Everyone was so pumped and helpful. It's like working with family!
Describe your favorite gown from the shoot and why you feel that way.
One black mermaid dress I wore along with a black boa. I left so beautiful and empowered. That dress really showed my curves beautifully.
Loved all of the mermaid style dresses and of course the glitz and glam of them all!
Tell us a funny story from the shoot.
I probably got a better workout running in and out of all the dresses than at the gym.
