Body positivity and fashion go hand-in-hand for me. Using fashion to express and celebrate how I look has helped me go from living in hiding to wearing a naked dress on the streets of New York.
Literally, this naked dress fashion dare opened a side of me that I never even knew existed.
Fashion slave that I am, I made the naked dress my next #FashionDare. This dress is by Pop Up Plus and it's called "Queen For A Day," which is appropriate AF.

Once I hit the streets, the spirit of a thousand Rihannas and Beyoncés took over my body.
But the real problem was that I was waiting for someone else to find me attractive, rather than accepting my body and actually finding myself sexy.
This fashion dare brought out a sexy, powerful side that I never knew I had. But you don't have to wear a naked dress to find this in yourself. Maybe for you it's a crop top, or a two-piece bathing suit, or even just a tank top.
The point is: challenge yourself. In a world where we're told to hide behind wardrobes of "flattering" clothing, sometimes we have to change the way we look to change the way we see ourselves.
