2016 was a really hard year for everyone. It certainly wasn’t a year I will look back on fondly for many reasons. However, as I sifted through the photos for this post, there were many moments of laughter and fun sprinkled throughout. I always like to look on the bright side and so despite everything we’ve been through, here are some happy memories and pictures from 2016.
This year I traveled to New York, Montreal and Mexico! I had a wonderful time modelling for Raezor Latex and participating with them in Montreal Fetish Weekend. I performed in four spectacular Peepshow TO productions, three of which involved choreographing brand new group/duet routines with some of the most amazing Nerdlesque performers I know. I met my personal fashion inspiration Dita Von Teese! I got three new tattoos, including one that I got with my mom of the two of us as matryoshka dolls. I further developed my portfolio as a model and as a photographer. I made three wedding dresses and got to see two of my best friends marry each other!
I guess this year wasn’t so bad after all. Here’s to an even better 2017! Happy New Year!
It’s summer in the city and boy is it hot! Luckily I’ve got my trusty fan and a fabulous collection of clothing from Primaala to keep me looking and feeling cool. Primaala caters to a high-end, modern, plus size fashionista clientele. Their designs are sleek and sophisticated with clean lines and rich fabrics. I had the pleasure of shooting this amazing selection of outfits with the help of the Fashion Canadiana herself, Vanessa Petey. Vanessa is a fashion blogger with a focus on Canadian made clothing who has been exploring all facets of the fashion industry including a focus on Plus Size Fashion. Vanessa introduced me to two amazing women, Rachel Holt, the woman behind this fantastic plus size store/clothing line and Yuli Scheidt, curvy goddess and photographer extraordinaire. I had a lovely time working with these incredible women and am so happy to share the final results!
