You have to love when blogger boos step out of their comfort zone and reach for their dreams! Tanesha Awasthi is about that “unapologetic confidence” life. As with the average woman, it took a lot of inner work to get there, but she did and has paid it forward with Girl With Curves. Founded in 2011, Girl With Curves is a community-based platform filled with beauty, style, wellness, and more! Most of all, it’s a safe space!
Over the years, Girl With Curves has grown in popularity and recently announced her collaboration with Dia & Co! If you do not know, Dia & Co is an online personalized stylist company fit to tailor a curvy girl’s needs via subscription boxes. Their motto is “try before you buy!”
I’ve wanted to be a designer since I was a little girl, so when Dia & Co asked if I wanted to join their initiative to #MoveFashionForward, I happily said YES!,” exclaimed Awasthi. “Partnering with a plus-focused fashion company that not only understands my mission to show women they can look and feel amazing regardless of size is not only a dream come true, but also a breathe of fresh air! Everyone on the team, from the CEO, the design and marketing teams, to the stylists who are in touch with customers every day, believe in giving women who happen to be size 14+ amazing options, and I couldn’t be happier with the outcome of our partnership!
