A Stylist and a Model walks into a bar

They both leave bloggers :)…..

I’m not brave for loving my body – it’s hard freaking work and sometimes I have days/weeks/months where I just don’t love me and that’s real . –Tati-Ana Mercedes





Hey divas. Lets talk friendship. Let me tell you guys about the moment I fell in love with Essie Golden. Most people assume the spark of our friendship took place when she  decided to model for  Out of the Corner Plus Size Boutique. Heck NO! I am NOT a friendly person. I will admit that. To this day Essie will attest to it as well.  In fact she thought I did not like her the first time we met lol.  I guess I just gave off that vibe. I am very protective over  the company I keep.  Growing up in Brooklyn New York everyone gets the side eye. Okay back to the story. Essie helped me ship packages! I mean after the photo shoot she noticed how incredibly swamped I was and without even asking she picked up the tape and labels in went to work. I have always been a believer in “if a friend is in trouble, don’t annoy her by asking if there is anything you can do. Think up something appropriate and do it”! AND that is exactly what she did! Man that was enough. Its always the little things that start the biggest things!

Now I can say Essie is one of my greatest friends! Shes one of the greatest plus size models constantly serving even when designers aren’t hungry! It takes a strong women to be bold, assertive, and confident in this industry, shes certainly is all three!
