I attended the lecture with my good friend Donna, aka the Craveologist, and on our way in we were chatting about how the messages we were about to hear could relate to our professional goals. While Gabby's message fits like a puzzle piece with Donna's ideas about loving yourself as you are and finding your cravings both in food and in life - I realized that these ideas are SO important in fashion as well. The fashion industry should be about self expression and individuality but over time it has transformed into a bit of a battle for who's the thinnest, who's the MOST individual, who looks the best. I've spent a lot of time comparing myself to other people but I think that it's super important to take the time to acknowledge that even if you're not "that" girl and don't have the things that "she" has - you're YOU and the things that you have to offer are just as rad and just as impressive.
