The fashion blogging community has just gained some major street cred.
Popular blogger Dana Suchow of Do The Hot Pants has reevaled she airbrushes images of herself which feature on her blog.
Aside from a nip and tuck here and a glow added there, her adjustments have been minimal, but her confession shows just how aligned the blogging community is with the fashion industry.
And Dana said she now wishes she never Photoshopped the images to begin with and is instead encouraging a more body positive approach to the cult blog.
"In my ongoing mission to lift the veil that is currently suffocating us women, I realized that I, Hotpants, haven’t been entirely truthful with you.I’m sorry," she began.
"But because I want to be as transparent with you as possible, I’ve decided to expose the instances where I used photoshop to distort and change my body. I know it might only look like an inch or 2 removed from my waist, or a couple zits blurred here and there, but my stomach and my skin have been huge insecurities for me my entire life.
"So me revealing these images to you are a HUGE DEAL 4 ME & not to be taken lightly. I’m putting my flaws out there, as little or as big as they seem, so please respect that this isn’t easy for anyone."
She added give simple reasons why she decided to lift the lid, but her main reason? 'You are a unique goddamn snowflake'.
