From a to zanita
|Pictures by Zanita Morgan|
MEMORY LANESo because we are leaving to Milan tomorrow for fashion week (and because it’s 3am and I just finished packing while I have to leave home in 3 hours……) I didn’t have the energy to edit a brand new article from New York but remembered that I still haven’t showed you guys these amazing pictures shot by my friend Zanita while we were in Vancouver with Secret Location. Yes, I was saving them up for a great occasion like this one (one where I litterally have to put scotch on my eye lids to avoid falling asleep as a matter of fact). Zanita always manages to capture the best out of the people she photographs and it’s so interesting for me to shoot with somebody else from time to time just to see the difference in the photography’s vibe.
I must say that it is veeery rare that I wear mini skirts (okay I used to wear a lot of them a couple of years ago until I realised that it definitely wasn’t my thing) and this leads me to talk about a very important subject for all of us girls (and boys!!!) : proportions! Because yes, life would be sooo much easier if ”I had Gisele’s legs” and ”Doutzen’s strong arms”. I do love my legs, they allow me to walk, dance, explore, travel! (wear heels muahaha) but it’s soo easy to feel uncomfortable sometimes when surrounded by the fashion crowd and attending shows with models skinny as thin air (I personally find it quite beautiful). No matter if you have curves, no curves, it’s important to dress keeping in mind your proportions and wear things that flatter your silhouette. So I personally prefer skirts that are a little longer, some awesome trousers, leggings or something like that as I proudly enherited my family’s voluptuous thighs and put an accent on my upper body. But that’s really the whole point : learning to know yourself and accepting who you are : making improvements day by day but still focus on your beautiful qualities! But if you really want to wear that mini skirt, go for it! I tried to find a combo that works, with some nice heels a leather jacket, some delicate jewerly : and there you go!
P.SAs you guys are reading this article, we are probably on our way to Milan for fashion week! I am super happy to be back in Italy (goosh I really need to improve my italian…) and honestly MFW is my favourite one. Stay updated for news on Instagram @kristina_bazan or @jameschardon
realy beautiful photo!!http://www.blogger.com/profile/09148506376045458943
Amazing shoots, amazing shoeshttp://www.prowling-the-gr0unds.tumblr.com/
beautiful photography you look great! i love your legs as i feel you show it dosent matter, you are young and beautiful with a fantastic body and you are still wearing awesome clothes even if your legs arent sticks! ( you still have amazing legs ) Youve made me appreciate my legs more, so thank you :)
The photos really have another vibe. But I like to see another style. :)http://www.blogger.com/profile/18409541663158071514
Zanita is such a talented photographer, love her pictures!http://www.blogger.com/profile/03595323487773747956
Diva In Me
These are some really beautiful pictures. Zanita is a really talented photographer and I'm glad you get to collaborate with her.http://www.blogger.com/profile/01578604434762401246
Your legs are amazing and in my opinion they look good with mini skirts. My legs are model thing and I don't like wearing skirts because it emphasizes on how stick-like they are. So it's all a matter of perspective and there are no absolutely right or wrong things to wear.http://www.blogger.com/profile/08053849329990026320
C'est vraiment très intéressant ce que tu dis! Et oui, les proportions c'est vraiment ce qu'il y a de plus important dans la mode! Les gens pensent que certaines choses ne leur vont pas alors qu'il suffit parfois d'une variante proche ou d'une coupe en particulier pour que tout change! Perso, je trouve que les mini te vont bien :D J'aiiiiime Zanitaaaaa ♥ -F, votre invétéré fan Belgehttp://www.blogger.com/profile/12706209241489951985
amazing ! :)http://www.blogger.com/profile/05480847262646858370
I feel the same way about my thighs, I don't really feel confident wearing skinny jeans or mini skirts/shorts, but seeing you looking so confident in your own skin is so inspiring,you always look beautiful plus I think you're a great role model & my twin and I really look up to you! xxhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/16653930779919802265
Tu as de jolies jambes, ne te complexes pas car tu vis ta vie actuellement proches de celles des mannequins et tu en croises ou fréquentes beaucoup.http://www.blogger.com/profile/16377774124932034281
Tu es parfaite tel que tu es! Et moi j'aime pas les jambes toutes frêlent, une femme doit rester une femme.
I love the skirt ;)http://www.blogger.com/profile/07282358726259077244
I absolutely love the styling Kristina - you nailed it! and you are absolutely rocking that mini!http://thetravelarchives.tumblr.com/
These photos are gorgeous !! You're amazing !
I think you are much more beautiful than all these super skinny models. Your legs are in great shape, really sexier than these shapeless model legs.
Very inspirational stunning photos!
gorgeous pics, Zanita is an artist and you are a muse!
I love the look and your are so pretty! I love your kature to go videos but when are you going to upload some again?
Breathtaking photos , a lot of style
wow..the photos are very different that we used to..zanita is such an amazing girl..and you..the perfect team!
You're so amazing! I have a body similar to yours and that's one of the reasons why I love your blog, because you always dress well for your body shape and I love getting inspired by your outfits x
Wow these photos are incredible!http://www.blogger.com/profile/15048140754002353015
Both James and Zanita take great photos of you, can't possibly decide who's pictures I like best
Love the shoes, so elegant
Wooow thank you Kristina. The advice you gave here is something all of us girls should have in mind all of the time. As one of those who's always struggling with loving her body (or not, that's the point) , it's necessary for me to read this once in a while. Plus, you made a point by saying that we have a family backdrop that we have no choice than to deal with.
You really are an example for me ! I hope I'll get as successful in my blogging career.

Thank you for a good reminder Kristina: dressing for your body!!!! It can be difficult to accept sometimes that you can't wear something that looks amazing on someone else, but learning to love whatever you have is the best lesson in life because then you will confident and fabulous all the time!!! (which you do!) A good lesson for all girls & boys :)
Zanita is so talented!! I always love her pictures ;)http://www.blogger.com/profile/16622039145457801346
Looks great! Very nice post ;)
Love from Amsterdam!
Kristina, it's so great to see fashionistas that exhibit physical normalcy. After all, as a blogger, you want to reach your audience, mostly female young adults, and have it identify with you. You have a gorgeous, healthy body, and that is not only good for you, but also for thousands of girls out there that look up to you. Bon travail! Beaucoup d'amour d'un ex-genevoise!
Absolutely beautiful look and images, enjoy Milan xx

I love this!http://www.blogger.com/profile/11439887213058301075
you look amazing!
I personally love your legs, they are smooth, they seem to be long enough for your body and your knees are round in a sexy way. They are feminine and nicely shaped. Strut your stuff as much as you want, while you can baby. Life's too short to worry about these. Also as you know, when you are confident all the posh fashionistas faint!http://www.blogger.com/profile/01192528955835905608
Perfect look !http://www.blogger.com/profile/04258902589410923293

Such amazing pictures! You look great!
Please, check my blog
I totally feel you on the voluptous legs. For the longest time I refused to wear short shorts because I found my thighs were too thick in proportion to the rest of my body. Plus short shorts made me feel uncomfortable physically because they would ride up in all the wrong places. It was only until this year where I felt comfortable enough to wear shorts. It's not about being insecure or chasing some unhealthy dream of being skinny miny, it's just knowing your body and knowing what you're working with. I can tell in your photos you are extremely comfortable with yourself and you are working it! You're a stunner and I admire your confidence.http://thelokilife.com/
Le monde,mon amour.

btw. I find it great to read that you love your body. some weeks ago, when you posted all these workout pictures it seemed that you have some complexes or something which you REALLY don't need to have as you are super beautiful!!!

I find your legs and thighs very pretty and attractive, you should not be worried about it and I am honest, your body is wonderful! ;)http://mademoisellestla.blogspot.fr/
But I understand what you said by knowing that I have the same problem, I find my thighs too voluptuous and when I see models in Fashion show, it's even worse :( But as you said If I want to wear a mini skirt I am gonna wear it, confidence is the key!
You look wonderful on these pictures ! :)
