Style is not a reward for the skinny. It's not, 'iI I'm rich, thin and young.' You may not like your size, but then don't invest in leather leggings. Let yourself want the expensive bag and really love it and show it off and have a ball with it.
Fashion is an industry to make money. It plays into human psychology. We want to belong, we want to be loved. I'm not trying to demonize the fashion industry - I love the fashion industry - but style is about taking the control out of the industry's hand and having you decide what works for you.
Seeing, feeling, thinking, believing - these are the stages of how we change our style on the outside and our self-image on the inside.
I really do believe that my style is informed by the fact that I had such issues with my appearance at various times of my life.
