What made you want to become a fashion blogger?
I have always been a big fan of fashion, and I wanted a creative outlet to express my interest in fashion. I was led into blogging because I was inspired by so many of the bloggers out there, so I wanted to inspire people as well.
What are the challenges, if any, you face in being petite and plus-size?
One of the biggest challenges I face with being plus size and petite is the length of clothes. Lots of plus size clothes that I try on are usually really long on me so I have to get them altered to fit me properly.
What’s your favorite thing about being petite and plus-size?
I think the best thing about being petite is that I’m often mistaken for being younger than I really am.
What’s your favorite thing about being a blogger? A petite-plus fashion blogger?
My favorite thing about being a blogger is that you get to share your story with others and by doing that, I really hope to inspire others that might be going through the same thing. I think being a petite-plus blogger shows others that being plus-size isn’t just one way but that we come in different heights and sizes.
Who/what are your favorite designers/brands?
One of my favorite designers is Kate Spade because I love her chic and fun style. One of my favorite brands that I actually wear a lot is Forever 21+ because their style is youthful and fun and gives me an opportunity to try different styles out because of the cheap prices. Another brand I really like also is ASOS. I love their clothes, and they offer so many different genres of styles.
Describe your personal style.
I like to think of my style as a little girly, a little preppy and a little bit edgy.
Any bloggers currently on your radar?
I follow a lot of bloggers but currently I’ve been really loving Audrey from Lulu Linden - her style is so chic, Liz from With Wonder and Whimsy - she has a girly style that I love, and also Runa from Glam by Runa has amazing style.
Anything else you want The Curvy Fashionista’s readers to know?
I would love the readers to know that plus-size comes in many shapes and sizes and not to criticize someone that they feel aren’t plus size because you never know – they could be going through the same struggle as you. Instead, think of plus size as a community of individuals inspiring and supporting each other.
