Fashion Blogger Dana Suchow Gets Real About Photoshopping Her Images

Dana Suchow

Last week, Dana Suchow of the fashion blog Do The Hot Pants shared with her readers that she’d used Photoshop in the past to alter some of her self portraits. She posted a slew of unretouched photos, pointing out where she’d previously shaved a few inches off her stomach or brightened her skin. She wrote:

“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…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.”

A Few Of My Favorite Things: Christina From Second Skin Style

Beautiful Christina of the blog Second Skin Style uses her fashion site as “a little collection of my thoughts and outfits,” she explains. Her style is thrift store-eclectic. “I see patterns in everything and tend to think that in the end it all makes sense.” Lately, she says, “I’ve been feeling very hedonistic, and if you think about it, the winter months sort of bring that drive out in people. The cold makes it easy to justify a little pleasure seeking! I am trying to stay grounded though and not get too self-indulgent, but there are a few things I allow myself to dip into with abandon.” Check out Christina’s guilty pleasures after the jump!

A Few Of My Favorite Things: Deana From Green With Glamour

Deana is the super cool lady behind Living Green with Glamour. “It’s essentially a lifestyle blog devoted to all things sublime and ‘sustainable’ — whether that’s an organic lip balm, a vintage YSL handbag, a recipe for Vegan Bahn Mi or the best new pieces in eco-fashion and home décor,” explains Deana. “I have a handful of writers who contribute, including Justin Bieber’s hairstylist (go figure), an arty, bohemian husband and wife foodie team, a TV producer with a proclivity for vintage clothing and a Southern belle obsessed with DIY… but I do write most of the posts and edit everything else. The crux of my life’s manifesto is that absolutely no sacrifice in style needs to be made to have an environmentally, humanely and animal-friendly lifestyle.” Check out Deana’s favorite things after the jump!
