I truly believe that sometimes, we as women, don’t support each other enough. We compare, we envy, we put down, we compete. I hate the phrase ” Real Women have curves ” because we all know if you aren’t sporting a certain type of “curve” down under, it’s safe to say you are a real woman. While this blog will likely appeal to curvier types because we are underrepresented in the fashion /beauty industry – it does not exclude those that are super thin. It’s not a competition. We don’t need to put ourselves in categories all the time to feel relevant. Thin, thick, short, fat, dark, light, limbless, whatever – are ALL beautiful and are of value in our own special way. We ALL have something to offer the world that makes it a ” Hautter” place ( sorry, is that one a stretch? ) Ok a more ” Be-you-ti-full” place. I LOVE the quote that Erica Cook said ” I’m not interesting in competing with anyone, I hope we all make it. ”
So that follows perfectly into what I wanted for this blog. Once a week I will be featuring an amazing woman who has not only amazing style and beauty but an inner awesomeness that shines and encourages others. My goal is that every week a new face will be a breath of fresh air and an inspiration to other women that will be able to identify with her interview. A space where we can encourage and be encouraged in our ” Hauteness.” My very first Hauttie will be posted tomorrow night! I’m so excited for this journey of loveliness. If you know someone that deserves to be noticed, tell her to email firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line ” Haute girl of the week”. It might take a few weeks to respond as there will only be 4 girls chosen a month.
