WHY AM I ALIVEEEEEEEEEEEE
Welp, I’m clearly a different species than this woman.
Look at this Goddess of a woman!!
Like… How you gonna tell me black women inferior???
I’m full of contradictions.
Thick is the new black*
Hey, I’m Lex (they/them) and I recently started a fashion and culture vlog. For the longest time I’ve felt that I was too big (US 16/18) to wear cute clothes or be a trend setter but in the past year or so I’ve grow so much confidence to be myself. I’ve finally gotten bold enough to start a youtube. My goal is to make every person feel confident in the body they have.

When I was growing up, I always envied those girls who could wear those short shorts in summer. I never thought I could be one of those girls. My thighs are thick and rub together and my cellulite is always on display. I remember one time, I was attending summer school. I had on long blue jeans, a long sleeved yellow shirt, and a short sleeved thick vest. I felt so uncomfortable in my own skin that I didn’t even want to let a single part of me be seen. The strangest thing was, as people were asking me “aren’t you hot?”, I felt the need to lie and say I wasn’t.
And, when I realized I actually lied to people about something as simple as clothing, I knew I had a problem. It was a long road to feel good about myself,and to be honest I still have those days where I look in the mirror and cry. And unfortunately, I still have those days were I self loathe enough to put a blade against my skin. My journey isn’t over yet, but I’m a hell of a lot better off then I was before..
So here’s to wearing shorts in the summer,
it’s hard I know I’ve been there.
Take the steps, you’re worth it.

I love connecting with people.
