The Influencers

The BostonVoyager owes a huge debt to the incredible local community of influencers – from fashion bloggers to foodies – who put in countless hours of work uncovering hidden gems throughout New England. We’d like to introduce you to some of Boston’s most gifted tastemakers and influencers below.

 

This time last year, I was landing in Athens, Greece. As I stood in line to book a ticket to Karpathos with my girlfriend, I witnessed an old white male yell at another man in line holding a baby (minding his own business) "GYPSY, HAHAHA" he yelled, pointing. "GET OUT OF HERE, GYPSY SCUM!" He taunted. The man held his son tighter, holding the back of his little head, trying to protect his son's innocence. His wife and daughter looked on from outside of the line. Everyone around us looked down at their feet. I stepped out of line and walked towards the racist man. "Excuse me!" I said. He turned around and smiled at me – I knew my white privilege was showing. "You're a racist piece of shit" I yelled. _______I wanted to share this story because we ALL need to stand up against racism and stand for #equality. It's time we leave our comfort zones, our safe places. Please don't be those people in line looking down at their feet, just ignoring and hoping it'll go away. Photo taken by @neivy

my story started with a mirror. every time I looked in that mirror I lost myself, I saw nothing but a body full of extra skin and shame. I went days telling myself that what I ate was poison little did I know it was the thing that was keeping me alive and healthy. I soon developed a disorder that far too many struggle with, I compared myself to the models I worked with, people at my school, and even my own friends. I could have lost my life, I was close to it and I thank god everyday i’m alive and in recovery from that disorder. But what I feel called to do is spread the word of self love, because who really are we trying to win over in this life of ours if they don’t love who we are, as we are now? Why are we trying to lose weight just to become that someone, or that model. Why do we have to count our calories and act like eating is shameful? each and everyone of you deserves life, love and most of all happiness. happiness with who you are as a being. I’m thankful for january 26th and the guardians who saved my life, who gave me hope when I was nothing but hopeless. treat your body as a temple, as a warrior, because that’s what we were meant to do. we’re all warriors in the making. Thank you to everyone who has helped me in this recovery, and loved me for who I am, even when I was broken.

    Thank you so much for the feature of our business page @vintageaddictxx and my personal page @foreignntalentt. Our goal is to promote affordable fashion while changing lives. “ Don’t pay it all to slay, if you can help someone for a day” we want to show people how to be a fashionista without breaking their wallets.
