How long have you been blogging?

3 years

What or who inspired you to become a fashion blogger/influencer? What led you to it?

My younger self. I entered the corporate world and I wasn’t prepared with the proper wardrobe. There weren’t a lot plus size bloggers who did career wear and functional wardrobes, for career women.

I want to be the blogger I needed when I was a young career woman.

Do you blog full-time, for fun, as a hobby? Share your evolution!

I blog part-time and I am a freelance writer

What is your favorite asset? Your legs, arms, waist? How do you play that up?

My waist 🙂

What are the challenges, if any, you face in being plus-size?

Definitely my lower belly! It’s so hard to dress for a pear shape with a pronounced lower belly.

What’s your favorite thing about being plus-size?

My curves, for sure – the way I “fill” out dresses and skirts!

What’s your favorite thing about being an influencer?  

Sharing what I have learned about dressing yourself and feeling good and confident. Also becoming a resource for women who are looking for plus size fashion options and style.

Who/what are your favorite designers/brands?

Lane Bryant, Reformation, FTF, and Tanya Taylor

Describe your personal style.

It’s all neutral glam with a hint of femme

Which blogger inspire you? Plus or straight size! Any bloggers currently on your radar?

So many! I love Naomi Byer, Essie Golden, Princess of Personal Bravery, Maxey Greene, Taelor of Stylishsista, etc. There are SOOOO many great bloggers right now!

What do you think or hear from readers, is one of the biggest myths about plus size fashion?

That it has to be either dowdy or overly sexualized. There is a middle ground.

You CAN dress like the other fashion girls, AND you DON’T have to just wear fast fashion.

There are options!

Are you working on anything or have anything to share? Anything else you want The Curvy Fashionista’s readers to know?

I am launching a YT channel soon! I am really aiming for it to be more than hauls, I want to create plus size capsules, work wear, how to style the latest trends, how to shop your OWN closet, etc.

You can subscribe here for when I upload my first video soon.

You can also follow me, A Neutral Life on Instagram @aneutrallife, Facebook at /aneutrallife and Pinterest at /aneutrallife!

Lastly, what does Curvy.Confident.Chic mean to you?

It’s not a dress size, it’s a woman who is happy in her body and uses fashion to express herself.

She wears the clothes; they don’t wear HER.
