Shopping with Leah of Beauty & The Muse
I had the pleasure of meeting Leah Vernon of “Beauty & The Muse” this past weekend. Leah is a blogger, stylist and model who is representing for Plus Size African American Muslims. Her style, views and personality were so unique and refreshing. It is so important to be yourself especially in today’s society where everyone wants to be someone else. The way Leah manipulates trendy fashion to align with her personal style and religion is very inspiring.
Leah and I met for lunch in the food court. We chatted away in between bites about upcoming events, our season fatshion faves, and the blogger business in general. Strolling around the Florida Mall we walked off lunch while shopping in the hand full of stores that offered plus size apparel. We talked about how much the plus size fashion industry still lacked despite its rapid growth.
Leah and I sprinkled our #blackgirlmagic all throughout the mall, it felt good to just spend time with a like minded woman who was confident and goal oriented. We wrapped up our day with some ice cream and of course tons of pictures. It was so much fun, I wish more people in the industry would get together and just support each other instead of always be in in competition.
