Here's a picture of what I was wearing:

I take pride in trying to look nice, no matter what my size. As I've talked about before, I've pretty much always struggled with my weight. I try really hard though to put an effort into what I wear and convey the message that I am confident. Because honestly, I know that beauty comes in all sizes.
I've seen what it looks like when a woman gives up on herself. I've seen the baggy clothes, the elastic waistbands, the major fashion faux-pas. And sometimes I see myself heading down that path. On days when I just feel like nothing looks right, sometimes I wish I could just wear a tent to cover it all up. But I also know that every time I wear something that I feel really good in, my attitude is different. My confidence shines through. I smile more (I know you find that hard to believe, Em).
Sometimes, it's nice to get a little reminder that people notice the effort I'm putting in to looking good. And today's fashion award did just that.
