Hope you enjoyed getting to know a little bit more about Rochelle of Beauticurve last week. Our coverage of the bloggers we’ve named as the 20 breakout plus size bloggers of 2014 continues today with Venessia of Style4Curves.
Like me, she is a petite plus blogger, and she knows how to dress for her body. I love her use of leopard print and reds and pinks to add bold touches to her professional chic style. Whether sharing details of her family life or discussing how she overcame a body image issue, Venessia has a very open and inviting way of writing that makes you feel like you’re catching up with an old friend. She is a plus size blogger YOU NEED TO KNOW!!
Meet Venessia of Style4Curves!
Location: I reside in Jackson, MS.
What made you want to become a fashion blogger?
I wanted to become a fashion blogger because I wanted to inspire other plus size women. I had been reading blogs for years and finally got the nerve up to start one of my own in 2010. I had just lost a child, and while I was at home recovering and trying to keep my sanity, I decided to write my first blog post and the rest is history.
What are the challenges, if any, you face in being petite and plus-size?
One of the challenges I face being so short is finding pants that aren’t too long.
What’s your favorite thing about being petite and plus-size?
I like my height because I rarely have problems with skirts or dresses looking too short.
What’s your favorite thing about being a blogger?
My favorite thing about being a blogger is being able to genuinely help other women.
Who/what are your favorite designers/brands?
Jibri, Boohoo, Torrid, and Asos are my favorites right now.
Describe your personal style.
My personal style is chic, classy, and colorful. I incorporate trends into my personal style but overall I prefer more classic pieces that I can get a lot of wear out of.
Any bloggers currently on your radar?
Jeniese of thejenesaisquoi.
Anything else you want The Curvy Fashionista’s readers to know?
I want them to know that they can look fabulous at any size on any budget.
