Meet April of What April Wore!!
Location: Bronx, NY
How long have you been blogging? 2 1/2 years
What or who inspired you to become a fashion blogger? What led you to it?
I‘ve always gotten questions on where to shop, what makeup to buy, what hair I’m wearing or products I’m using, so I decided to compile it all in blog form. I’m also inspired by a lot of plus fashion bloggers.
Do you blog full-time, for fun, as a hobby? Share your evolution!
At the present moment, I blog as a hobby. Hopefully, one day it will change.
What is your favorite asset? Your legs, arms, waist? How do you play that up?
I love my legs. I most often wear skirts and dresses to show them off and pair them with any form of a heel to kick it up a notch.
What are the challenges, if any, you face regarding being plus size?
Plus size clothing can be tricky. It’s not located everywhere. I more often than not order my clothes online because I feel I get more variety. I wish there was more variety in stores.
What’s your favorite thing about being plus size?
I’m comfortable in my plus size skin…
What’s your favorite thing about being a blogger?
Being able to share my view on fashion and beauty… I like giving my perspective.
Who/what are your favorite designers/brands?
Ashley Stewart, Eloquii, Jibri, Monif C., Asos
Describe your personal style.
I think my style is a blend of Southern- belle meets NYC. I tend to love matching accessories to shoes like Southern belles often do but love to try funky pieces and hats with mixed pieces as well. So, I’m a mix between the two.
Which bloggers inspire you? Plus or straight size! Any bloggers currently on your radar?
Road To Fashionable, Naturally Fashionable, GarnerStyle, Thera Cloud
What do you think about where plus size fashion is today versus a few years back?
We have so many more options. And the fashion is no longer frumpy and muted… We actually can find swimsuits and crop tops and other pieces that used to only be available in straight sizes.
What do you think or hear from readers, is one of the biggest myths about plus size fashion?
I honestly don’t hear any myths. Plus size clothing has changed so much.
