Best of 2013 in Plus Size Fashion on The Curvy Fashionista
This one… emotional. This summer I happened to be blessed enough to meet the man who is my father. How I saw myself, my feelings of self-worth, my identity were all questioned. It was quite emotional and I shared.
I was fortunate to be among 11 other plus size bloggers who were chosen to participate in the Marina Rinaldi campaign, #WomenAreBack and from there I was tapped to be shot for the Italian Marie Claire Magazine!
Design Elements in Plus Size Clothing that Irk me
A mini rant about design elements sparked QUITE the conversation on the blog! I thought I was alone, but from the comments, I see I am not!
When Eloquii decided to shut their doors, I was pissed. Frustrated is more like it. There was so much potential here for them to rival a few top brands and I addressed it, and YOU did too! Now? Eloquii is launching in the spring of 2014! WHEE!
Tim Gunn was interviewed and quoted about HIS frustration in plus size fashion and I wrote him this letter asking HIM to do something about it, especially with the platform and positioning he has.
Nothing pisses me off more than when someone tries to discredit a blogger. The “Oh, you’re just a blogger” is a gross sentiment and a dangerous one too. We are all more than bloggers and oftentimes come to the blogger table with years of experience, education, and knowledge that we share THROUGH our blog.
I had the pleasure of tapping into my inner geek with Intel! I hosted a Twitter chat that ended up TRENDING on Twitter! WHOA! Such an amazing feat! We had sooo much fun here!
I got irritated about multiple comments in which I noticed other plus size women projecting their insecurities and dislikes as fact. In this post I give another way to approach or look at the varying options.
I was surprised by this response in this post! I knew there were frustrations, but I hadn’t realized how passionate you were about this too! The comments here are golden.
