Meet Dionne of Supersize my Fashion!!!
Location: Rotterdam, Netherlands
What made you want to become a fashion blogger?
When I was younger, I had more difficulties finding trendy, age appropriate clothing. Nevertheless, I always tried to dress up and look cute. I got lots of compliments on it and wanted to share my style inspirations with other young girls who felt the same way I did before to show them that you can love yourself, be happy with who you are and look good while doing so 🙂
What are the challenges, if any, you face in being plus-size?
I don’t really consider it a challenge when it comes to fashion. I can always find what I like and even have to choose what to buy! I’m very much focused on trends in fashion, and if I have to name a challenge, it would be that sometimes, trendy looks or pieces are not always directly available for plus size consumers. Still, I always try to find a way. That also makes it more fun! You feel even better about something when you’ve worked hard to get it!
What’s your favorite thing about being plus-size?
Well, being more curvy completely changes the way clothing looks on you. I love the fact that I’m “blessed” in the chest area and I don’t mind showing it off, Lol. Apart from that, I love proving people wrong and showing that being plus sized is no excuse to not look great!
What’s your favorite thing about being a blogger? A plus fashion blogger?
I never dreamed that I could occupy myself with what I love so much, fashion. I don’t make an actual living off of it but just the fact that I can share this passion, inspire others and be appreciated for it by the people who actually take the time to read and visit my blog is so rewarding. To be taken seriously by brands that actually care about what you have to say and to be a voice/representative for curvy women around the world is amazing. It’s great to be a part of a changing fashion industry.
Who/what are your favorite designers/brands?
There are a lot of brands that I love and unfortunately, I can’t shop all of them, since they don’t ship to my country, but I love what Eloquii is doing. Monif C always blows my mind and Zelie for She is also one of my faves. Apart from the US based brands I’m really fond of Zizzi, Asos Curve, Junarose and New Look (especially for their shoes!).
Describe your personal style.
My style totally depends on my mood. Apart from that, I like to make trends my own and things that would be typically “me” are: pinks, fluff (faux fur), glitter and sparkles, and animal prints. Not at the same time of course 😉
Any bloggers currently on your radar?
Apart from the top bloggers we already know, I’m really into Emmi Snicker (http://emmisnicker.blogspot.se/), my fellow Dutch girls Mode Plus (http://www.mode-plus.com) and Fab and Luxury Curves (http://www.fabandluxury.com/), Danielle Vanier (http://www.daniellevanier.co.uk/) The Jenesaisquoi (http://thejenesaisquoi.blogspot.nl/) and CurvEnvy (http://www.curvenvy.com/). There are a lot more, but these are the blogs I currently visit on the regular.
Anything else you want The Curvy Fashionista’s readers to know?
Don’t hide yourself or think that only a slimmer version of you is worth certain things in life. Love the skin you’re in. Confidence is the best thing to wear. It will shine through!
