Purplesque Self Acceptance

What do you get if you mix

.. delicious purple and

.. over the top burlesque?

Honey, let me tell you, mixed right it gets you one of my fashion heroes: the iconic style icon Dita von Teese! This woman is fierce! I love her style, which to me is all about embracing your curves and not apologizing for showing them of! Now there`s a recipe for exuberance and fun! (Yes, AND sex ;) )

As far as I am concerned this life is all about accepting ourselves and giving everything the best we`ve got, and I am happy to tell you that after I stopped coming down hard on my self (such hard work, totally worth it) my life and achievements have soared. In terms of fashion that has opened me up to loving my shape, educating my self on what silhouettes best show off my assets and downplay my flaws (all though my husband -bless him- insists that every part of me is beautiful, but of course this may be an example of his wisdom seeing as how he has to/gets to live with me). More than anything this style-voyage has helped me travel into previously uncharted territory: COLOR! Let`s just say I have arrived! Wearing color helps me feel all woman, and I love it.

Here`s my latest Purlesque project, a sheer purple dress made from fabric I had lying around that plays up my curves:

For other takes on purple, leopard and self acceptance check out my posts "Leopard love!", "Destination purple", "Sultry love!", "It`s all about the shape girls", and "Curves ahead".

Actually, just check all of them out, they`re all about loving our selves! ;)
