Nicki Lynch of Plus Positive Organization
All my life I wasn’t too conscious of my look and if I was adhering to fashion trends. I just wore what I liked! However, as the founder of PLUS Positive, a nonprofit organization for plus size men and women, I felt the pressure these last few years to represent the organization and step up my fashion game. I started listening to others and allowed myself to get out of the box and follow some of the trends. Unfortunately, I found I was feeling insecure about my look. I didn’t feel comfortable attending certain events because I wasn’t sure if I followed the “fashion rules.”
Until one day I was speaking with an old friend I hadn’t seen in the last few years. She began telling me how I was always her fashion inspiration. She admired how I had a knack for wearing timeless fashions with my own flare. She was referring to the days when I just wore what I wanted…not the latest trends. So I made the decision to step outside of the fashion box and go back to being uniquely me!
