My Life in Letters to You

captions for the images you left in my head

Late last year, SM Department Store (the biggest retail chain in the Philippines) held a plus size model search that ended in September, if I remember correctly. I saw their ad while I was perusing the aisles at the plus size section in the department store and immediately, the saleslady came up to me and said, “Why don’t you join the contest? You’re very pretty.” And I was like, what? Haha. So I checked out the mechanics, and it read that I had to buy P800 ($18) worth of clothing from a particular plus size brand and get the code, after which I have to submit my full body and closeup photos to this app on Facebook. Anyway, I ended up not joining because I’m a loser like that lol. Anyway I saw this the other night. SM Plus Size Ladies Fashion is releasing their summer collection, and who else would model the collection but the winner of the contest, right? So here she is, the lucky girl who won a trip to Bangkok or Hong Kong (I don’t remember), and a modeling stint with SM. My mom said she looks like Adele. I was like, oh yeah. Guess they were channeling that look. Anyway, if there’s another contest this year, I’ll probably get my guts together and join, because I feel like it’ll be a fun experience, getting out of your comfort zone once in a while. Gotta admit, I’m really inspired by Tara Lynn because she’s like the most beautiful thing ever, and right now I’m just…hardly accepting my body for what it is. It’s a journey and it’s a long and difficult one, but now I feel like I’m dressing better and I’m feeling prettier more often, and I welcome that change because I really, truly want to be confident in myself. :)
