How long have you been blogging?
What or who inspired you to become a fashion blogger? What led you to it?
I was already making YouTube videos and frankly I don’t know why I wasn’t blogging!
Do you blog full-time, for fun, as a hobby? Share your evolution!
I’m part time as I am also in law school. I’m open to seeing where blogging might lead me!
What is your favorite asset? Your legs, arms, waist? How do you play that up?
My brain! Oh… and then my hair! I’m all about big hair as often as possible.
What are the challenges, if any, you face in being plus size?
Finding special one-of-a-kind or unique pieces is challenging with limited options available in plus sizes. As far as fit goes, I sometimes struggle to fit jackets and tops as I have large arms. Another thing I find frustrating is the near lack of high-waisted tailored slacks available.
What’s your favorite thing about being plus size?
I love being curvy! Right now is an awesome time to have a fuller figure because retailers are starting to cater to us!
Who/what are your favorite designers/brands?
Eloquii, Rebdolls, Mynt1792, IGIGI and Forever 21
Describe your personal style.
Girly, chic, and eclectic
What do you think about where plus size fashion is today versus a few years back?
It’s so much better but we still have a ling way to go! We need less basics and more special pieces!
Lastly, what does Curvy.Confident.Chic mean to you?
Buy the dress & wear it! I recently just started wearing bodycon dresses & it’s been very empowering!
