Last month was seriously enjoyed one of my favorite travel moments. I got to spend a few days in Venice, Italy before sailing off with Princess Cruises inaugural voyage on their newest ship Sky Princess. More on that amazingness to come but back to me living my best life in Venezia.
It was like a trip before the trip and it just happened to be in one of the most beautiful cities in the world.
So, of course having this amazing opportunity to be in such gorgeous city with a beautiful backdrop around every corner I had to make time for a dramatic photo shoot.
Chabeli and I woke up super early to head to one of the most famous and central piazzas on the island – Saint Mark's Square. It's home of Saint Mark's Basilica, Doge's Palace and is also the location of that Spiderman movie with Zendaya – so historic. Just sayin.
This dress was made to be worn in a beautiful place so being in Venice, well, duh, was perfect.
To be honest, I knew wearing this dress in Venice would probably garner some looks but I had know idea of the reaction it would actually have.
Being fat you always get looks from people. It's just is what it is. But when you're fat AND confident – well the looks increase exponetially and the questioning.
How are you so confident?
Where did your confidence come from?
blah blah blah
The two can't possibly coexist but my life is literal proof that they can. Don't question my fat girl fly just embrace it. Enjoy it.
So it's understandable to say that I'm used to people looking my way when I'm dressed up and doing a streetstyle shoot.
But the reaction your girl got from the crowds in Saint Mark's Square wearing this gorgeous tulle gown?!!!
It was insane!
Crowds of tourists and Venetians alike started to form around me wanting to take a selfies with me. Even the Italian law enforcement was smitten with me and ended up being my photographer for a bit.
It was unreal and it reminded me that you can't stop a fat girl slay and we're taking it international baby! #NORMALIZEFatGirlSlay
Next stop on my European tour with Princess Cruises is Kotor, Montenegro. Sky Princess is legit the nicest ship ever and there is so much I want to share. Stay tuned for that post coming later this week!
