How long have you been blogging?
I have been blogging for 4 years now
What or who inspired you to become a fashion blogger? What led you to it?
Other fashion bloggers encouraged me to become one. I always loved fashion, and I would spend so much time reading fashion blogs. It was so nice seeing women who looked like me wear plus size fashion with such confidence. It pushed me to start my own and to use my blog as an outlet to build my confidence and express my personal style.
Do you blog full-time, for fun, as a hobby? Share your evolution!
It started off as a hobby, an outlet for me to express myself through fashion, but it has definitely grown into something more. This has definitely become my second job, but in a good way.
What is your favorite asset? Your legs, arms, waist? How do you play that up?
I would have to say that my favorite asset is my legs, I always get tons of compliments on them, and I love showing them off by constantly wearing dress and skirts.
What are the challenges, if any, you face regarding being plus size?
The challenges I face in regards to being plus size is size diversity within brands. I would love to see more size inclusiveness so that we aren’t stuck just shopping in the same stores all the time.
What’s your favorite thing about being a blogger?
One of my favorite things about being a blogger is being able to make a difference in someone’s life. It’s so rewarding to hear from my readers how I inspire them or give them the boost of confidence they need to be fearless.
Who/what are your favorite designers/brands?
Oh wow, where do I begin! My top favorites are Eloquii, Lane Bryant, Modamix, Fashion to Figure, Forever 21, just to name a few.
Describe your personal style.
I would say my personal style is definitely super feminine and girly, with a sophisticated flair and a touch of chic.
Which bloggers inspire you? Plus or straight size! Any bloggers currently on your radar?
There are so many that inspire me, of course my fellow Instagram Wives – Darlene of Suits, Heels and Curves and Jami of Style Over Size as well as Georgette from Grown and Curvy Woman and Jeniese from The Je Ne Sais Quoi.
What do you think about where plus size fashion is today versus a few years back?
Plus size fashion today has definitely evolved in the past few years. I can remember when I first started getting interested in fashion the only brands that had decent clothing were ASOS, Forever 21, and Lane Bryant. Now, we have an abundance of brands to shop which means they are finally seeing the impact that we plus size women have in the fashion world.
What do you think or hear from readers, is one of the biggest myths about plus size fashion?
One of the biggest myths I hear from my readers is that there aren’t a lot of options out there for the plus size woman. This is another reason why I feel bloggers are so important because we are providing information to that reader that might not be as fashion savvy as we are. Keeping them up to date on all the newest brands and trends available makes it easier for our readers to know where to find awesome plus size fashion.
Are you working on anything or have anything to share? Anything else you want The Curvy Fashionista’s readers to know?
I am working on some special projects. My fellow Instagram wives and I have something cooking for the holidays as well. So stay tuned!
Lastly, what does Curvy.Confident.Chic mean to you?
Being comfortable in the skin that you’re in, mind, body and soul.
