Starting off my new year by attending my first ever @goldenglobes party hosted by my friends at @instylemagazine ✨ Thanks to @zeldawilliams for being the best date ever, & to @laurabrown99 for letting me look at that beautiful ring IRL (& for having me at your party, duh!) It was a memorable night! 🥂 Dress : @eloquii Shoes: @byfar_official Earrings: @kukkajewelry Rings: @kukkajewelry & @apmmonaco Bag: @onnaehrlich Styled @littlelimedress Hair @hisvintagetouch Makeup @shablamgela
While Tess makes the dress look like a million bucks, some may be surprised to learn that it actually only cost $200. The 33-year-old mentioned on Instagram that the reason why she chose the purple number is simply because there aren’t enough options for plus-sized women when it comes to high-end designers. The body positivity activist has broken barriers in the fashion industry time and time again while fighting for more representation and inclusiveness.
I landed on two best dressed lists, in a dress that was under $200, so it’s about your attitude, not the cost of a garment, or your name. But damn, My big ass needs options y’all. PLUS SIZE WOMEN NEED FANCY OPTIONS OK?!
