My own lifelong struggles with body image are what inspired me to create my blog, Already Pretty, in 2007. The blog mainly focuses on an adult audience. Yet over the years, I've received many pleas for posts and resources that speak to younger women. Which is why I was honored and delighted to have the chance to write Find Your Style, a body-positive guidebook to fashion, personal style, and figure flattery for teen girls.
I wanted to re-cast the mission of Already Pretty—which shows that body knowledge gained through explorations of personal style can foster self-love and self-respect--in terms that would resonate with a YA audience. And since young women have access to more sartorial options than ever before, I knew this message would be welcome.
