Anna is a fashion influencer and body positivity blogger based in Austin, TX. You might also know her as Glitter + Lazers. You definitely get what you see with this outspoken, fearlessly fashion-obsessed travel addict. She had us in stitches during the shoot, dropped some body positivity truth bombs on us, and worked that camera like a seasoned diva.
What’s one thing people don’t know about you?
My day job is actually designing software, which a lot of people who know me as a blogger don’t know. They complement and balance each other really nicely. Fashion allows me to be creative and extend myself to think about things in new ways, and technology allows me to practice precision and accuracy in what I do.
3 fun facts
1. My dog’s name is Data. After the Goonies, not Star Trek.
2. An ex-boyfriend was dressed up as a ninja when we met, and that’s what attracted me to him.
3. I was trying to think of something both masculine and feminine for my online persona. Glitter and Lazers. Boom.
On body positivity:
The first step towards changing the perception of what a “normal body” is, is by providing a wider array of imagery to the mix. It’s not about being brave, it’s about creating a balance in the images we see. So here’s my contribution to the mix times five because I had a lot of my fun in my body today and that fun has had nothing to do with its shape. All bodies can be fun bodies.
Advice to your younger self:
Stop giving a crap what anyone thinks. Easy…but not really.
