raw sass

Tess Holliday has been modeling since 2010, and is the first plus size model to be signed by an agency. She started the body positive movement #effyourbeautystandards in 2013 as a way to encourage all people to embrace their body as it is at this moment.   Full of sass and raw honesty, Tess’ posts are helping erase negativity and change the fashion industry.

Recipe for an Orchestra
  • Conductor: baton, attitude, black magic, let sit for 30-60 years
  • Violin: Soulless eyes, rosin, callouses, nice hair
  • Viola: Callouses, tears, repeat "It's not a violin" 1,000+ times while it forms
  • Cello: Haunting screams, blood, the souls of small children, with a pinch of callouses
  • Double Bass: Unfortunately small hands, good fashion sense, shy smiles
  • Percussion: Attractive face, sweaty palms, a curse to follow them through their life
  • Piccolo: ears of steel, utter insanity, pretty hands
  • Flute: Lush hair, independence, lack of enough practice time
  • Clarinet: Sass, despair, raw talent
  • Bass Clarinet: spooky, haunting eyes that entangle you in mystery, nachos
  • Oboe: Self hatred, more self hatred, frightening talent with sharp objects.
  • Bassoon: eternal damnation, cute face, social ineptness, mystery ingredient
  • Horn: Beautiful hair, pretty eyes, frighteningly quiet- possibly murderous intent
  • Trumpet: Big ego, Dazzling smile, Strong opinions (good and/or bad)
  • Trombone: Extreme body type in any sense, uncooperative hair, nocturnal tendencies
  • Tuba: Constant hunger, strong lungs, willpower of an ox
  • Harp: pure gold, penetrating eyes that look at your soul, a hint of danger beneath a layer of shyness

“Ah, to sail the seas. The wind at your back, the limitless blue stretched out before you, the creak of the boat and the spray of the ocean as the waves crest. That’s the life, adventuring out in the deep.”
