Meet Stephanie of Nerd About Town!!
What made you want to become a fashion blogger?
I have always had a strong love for fashion and would often get stopped in public by other plus sized women asking about my outfits. I also used to post up my outfits of the day or evening on fashion and lifestyle forums, and once I realized how popular my photos were becoming on there, I decided to start including style posts on my blog.
What are the challenges, if any, you face in being plus size?
My legs are a lot longer than my upper half, and my upper half is a size bigger than my legs, so at times I find it challenging when it comes to styling body-con dresses, jeans or jackets. Luckily, I’m a huge fan of skater and tulip-style pieces, and these seem to balance out my frame pretty well.
What’s your favorite thing about being plus size?
The constant hunting and thrifting for finding gems in my size (or not in my size) always makes me happy! At first, I used to look on this as a negative, but now I love looking for unique pieces that I can style and bring out the best in my curves.
What’s your favorite thing about being a blogger? A plus fashion blogger?
I absolutely love being within the plus size blogging community where there are multitudes of inspirational, confident and fabulous women; being a fashion blogger grants me the opportunity to inspire and to be inspired by others and is a huge creative outlet which has afforded me opportunities I would have never thought possible.
What are your favorite brands?
Brands I’m loving at the minute include AX Paris Curve, ASOS, New Look and Simply Be, but it would be amazing if we in the UK could get more access to US brands such as MonifC, Modcloth, Charlotte Russe and Addition Elle as they have amazing clothes!
Describe your personal style.
My personal style is always changing and is reflective of my mood at the time. In general I would probably say it’s a cross between minimalist and femme. I’m very intro mixing edgy and delicate fabrics such as leather and lace and I’m a huge fan of floral and graphic prints.
Any bloggers currently on your radar?
I do love US bloggers Chastity from Garner Style and Gabi Fresh as they were a huge source of inspiration for me starting out.On this side of the pond, I love my pals Hollie from Pretty Big Butterflies and Katie from Toodaloo Katie who are both STUNNING, as well as Lucia from UCantWearThat and Naomi from Diamond ‘n’ Pearls!
Anything else you want the Curvy Fashionistas to know?
Do not let your insecurities hold you back from being awesome. If you wear something that makes you feel amazing, despite the size, you have every right to go out and rock it to the fullest regardless of what people may think! You are B E A U T I F U L. <3
