Meet Blair of Note Blair!!!
Location: Los Angeles
How long have you been blogging? 6 months
What or who inspired you to become a fashion blogger? What led you to it?
I don’t know when my love for fashion & beauty started. Was it when Carrie Bradshaw was getting ready in her closet or when I was watching Breakfast at Tiffany’s or when Blair Waldorf was shopping on 5th avenue? Buying every single Vogue magazine and reading it like my life depended on it! I don’t know when it happened, but it made me who I am today! As much as I love going through magazines and getting inspired by them, what impresses me the most is personal style.
Do you blog full-time, for fun, as a hobby? Share your evolution!
What is your favorite asset? Your legs, arms, waist? How do you play that up?
My curvy hips – instead of hiding them why not embrace them.
What are the challenges, if any, you face regarding being plus size?
I always wanted to feel comfortable in my own skin. Being a plus size girl in this world where every corner you turn the skinniest models are on runway or on billboards, it’s a struggle feeling happy the way you are. (At least I struggled with it). I started this blog for many reasons. People always keep asking me “where did you get that item?” Or “How did you style that I would have never done that” or lots of “how to’s” and “what should I buy” My friends and family always encouraged me to share what I know. It can help many people! Along the way I learned how to accept myself and love myself.
What’s your favorite thing about being plus size?
Being different from others & being able to inspire people to love the skin they are in.
What’s your favorite thing about being a blogger?
INSPIRING OTHERS. I struggled a lot with my own image. I missed out on a lot because I was not happy with myself, with my size! Note Blair is all about inspiring others to love themselves.

Eloquii, Lane Bryant, Boohoo, Missguided, ASOS, YSL, Charlotte Russe, Gucci, Lavish Alice, Alice & You, City Chic, Chi Chi Plus, Forever Unique, Lovedrobe Luxe

What do you think about where plus size fashion is today versus a few years back?
This question reminded me when I saw Ashley Graham on a music video! I couldn’t be more proud that a curvy girl is being recognized and being included in a world where being size 0 is supposed to be every girl’s dream. Nowadays, girls with curves get more respect and less hate. Plus is becoming equal to skinny.
What do you think or hear from readers, is one of the biggest myths about plus size fashion?
I received a few comments about that curvy girls shouldn’t wear certain outfits which include – Stilettos don’t look good on curvy women; boyfriend jeans are not nice for curvy bodies; bright colors are not for plus size women; mini skirts are not for thick thighs. I hope that with my blog & style I can change these mind sets.
