So. Ten years. The Curvy Fashionista has been serving up, delivering, and curating plus size fashion for ten years! Can you believe it? 10 years! This month serves as our anniversary month and if you have been rocking with us for all this time, then you know what this means!
A Month FULL of Giveaways!

As a way to say thank you for your support, your readership, and the community you have become to us, we are celebrating all month long with giveaways that play off the number of years we are turning! And with this being year 10, the stakes are kind of raised, right?
I mean… 10 years. This is kind of a big deal. In the space where blogging was not even called that, “weblogs” was the name, in a space where plus size fashion blogging was an unknown, and when The Curvy Fashionista was thought to be a marketing outlet that we wanted to use to open a boutique.

My how times have changed.
NOW? The Curvy Fashionista has transitioned from blog to digital platform, has built a team, launched the TCFStyle Expo (currently planning year 5), and most recently kicked off our 1st TCFCruise (yes, we are planning next year’s cruise already!)- The Curvy Fashionista has grown.
And we are still growing!

We even have a new tagline!
Talk Style. Shop Plus. Celebrate Curves.
See, The Curvy Fashionista is not Me, Marie Denee… but your “in the know” girlfriend who is here to help you navigate, to talk about, and to celebrate all things plus size fashion!
Talk about growth, right? Evolution. Transition. Elevation.
So… as we kick off year 10 of The Curvy Fashionista, we had to do it up with a shoot, a few fun looks, and with a little ‘tude!

I love the collection period. I needed black tie inspiration.
I need the plug on the black strappy heels
The neon yellow leopard dress of my 80s dreams
This photo shoot is too gorgeous! Congrats girl!
Congratulations Marie!!! <3 I love the content from your blog these past few years since I became a follower. It was one of the first I subscribed to when I started my journey toward self-love and exploring my love of fashion. It goes without saying that you have greatly influenced a number of women (including myself), in the most profound way, by creating a space that is safe, unapologetic, and fills a void for the curvy fashionistas. Thank you for continuing to do what you do best and bringing us great content. BTW, you look radiant! ✨? So chic in Eloquii.
Love the Gold metallic jumpsuit from the Holiday collection. Thanks Curvy Fashionista and Eloquii
I love everything
I love the sequin trench coat! I love everything from Eloquii so it would be easy to spend that gift card, but I would probably update my work clothes!
I love the red lace shift dress…Butttt… that Jason Wu X Eloquii one shoulder sequin dress ..OMG. So pretty. I’d love to wear that on New years. Congrats on 10 years! I love how you always update us on the latest collections.
The black sequin wrap dress is gorgeous! I’m on team sequin over here so whatever they got with sequins on it, I want it!
Congrats on TCF’s 10 Year Anniversary!
I loved two pieces: Draper James’ Plaid Print Fit and Flare Dress and the Plaid Tartan Coat.
These pictures STUNNING!!
If I won, I would buy some outfits for my best friend. She NEVER treats herself. I want her to have better quality clothing. She has 2 kids and since she’s had them, she pays less attention to fashion. We used to go shopping together all the time. Now she doesn’t really have time. I would love to surprise her and give her something she’d really shine in!
Congrats on 10 years!
Congratulations on such a wonderful accomplishment! Love TCF ❤️
I love the sequin midi dress, the yellow dolman sleeve printed dress, and the leopard jacquard blazer!!! All must have wardrobe staples❤
I would totally rock the red lace dress. I’m so in love with it???
I love the tartan plaid coat and the Jason Wu black belted coat. Thanks for the chance!
That second dress is amazing and I am impressed by everything you’ve done and how you keep growing and adapting to changes in the industry.
Totally love the dress and in love with eloquii! Happy 10, marie!!!
Ooooh my cart would be FILLED with sequins and animal print!!
Just love, love Eloquii! Congratulations on celebrating ten years. As an up and coming fashion blogger I hope I will still be around in ten years. It’s been so hard to get my name out there and show everyone what I got!
My favorite(s) from the collection are the peplum jacket with satin pink bow and the jacquard leopard suit. AMAZING AND I GOTTA HAVE IT!!!
Congrats to you! I’ve been following you for a few years and have watched this transition and growth! You’re an inspiration to me and we’re one of the few bloggers I followed that helped me regain confidence in myself after piling on the weight after the death of my father and being jobless. I regained my sense of style despite the weight gain. Thank you so much!
I too hope to be an inspiration. Thank you!!! I also tuned into the Sparkle Party (Im a Sassy Jones Boutique Secret Society member) of which you were a guest. You are a boss! ❤️❤️❤️
The sequins wrap dress and that plaid jacket are both fire!!!!
I don’t know if my first comment was published, but here it goes again.
My favorite(s) from the collection are the peplum jacket with satin pink bow and the jacquard leopard print suit. I WANT IT AND HAVE TO HAVE IT!
Congrats on your 10 years of growth. I’ve been a subscriber of your blog for a few years now and you have been an inspiration to me, helping me regain my confidence after gaining so much weight after some devastating blows in my life. I forgot how to dress. You were one of the few bloggers that gave me that nudge to embrace the extra fluffy and work it! I hope to be that same inspiration for others. Here’s to another 10 and beyond!!! ??
Im in love with the feimine sexy suit look along with the sequin dresses/skirts. Eloquii does a great job making sure women of all sizes feel sexy, comfortable, and confident with our curves. You show casing their looks has inspired me to embrace and try new styles.

My favorite piece is the plaid winter coat!
I followed you and Eloquii as Divine Voices Media (@DiVoicesMedia and Diva’s Diamonds on Pinterest) and it is not connecting to show I have done it. How come?
Congrats, and that’s for your contributions to your audience.
The ruffle dress and sequin dress are amazing!
Congratulations on 10 years of success!!
I’ve been eyeing the emerald velvet blazer and the sequence pencil skirt! In fact, I’m a sucker for their neoprene pencil skirts. I already own four of them!
I like the red and black plaid shirt with the black sequined skirt laced with red. I would get that outfit and a dress for my birthday if I won!!!

I bought the red sequin dress and the faux wrap leather dress. I already wore the leather dress, and let me tell you that dress turns heads!! I am so excited to add more pieces to my collection.
The Fringe Easy Dress looks like a winner to me. I would have to retire the dress because I would have too many pictures in it lol
I really loved the tweed fit and flare dress. I also like the jacket they styled it with. The red leather looking one. I really enjoy cozy looking but cute clothing and that dress was a prime example. It gives off a warm hug vibe.
Congrats on 10 years! Helluva way to celebrate!

I love eloquii . I visited the store to check out the quality and was very impressed. The clothes and customer service are the best. Hoping walmart will let us use their credit card there lol. If not self layaway is going to happen
The dresses are gorgeous but I’d go for the teddy bear coat
I need…right?? ? Some of the gorgeous lingerie to go underneath my sexy dresses that I already have.
Seriously though, congratulations, thanks for being an inspiration that we should all do what we love!
The lace shift dress is great. I would also get the Flare Sleeve Tie Waist Faux Leather Top.

Congratulations Marie! I’m so happy I found your page 3 years ago. It literally changed not only the way I see fashion but the way I see myself. You are an amazing woman. And that ruffle dress is stunning!
I’m normally a dress person, but I’m realllly loving some of the suits in this collection…especially the brocade glitter one!
Would be nice to have some full cut leg jeans that aren’t stretch…
That sequined dress is everything I love about a little black dress! I would but it all! Please share where you got the heels you’re wearing with that dress.
The twist front printed dress is my favourite, very zebra!
Love it all!! The sequins have me ready to plan for all the upcoming holiday parties. So sleek.
Happy anniversary and thank you for what you do! My favorite may be the plaid ruffle top because it can be dressed up or down.

I am love with the whole collection but Look 1 I would rock it as a formal, then maybe put a black jacket on it and switch to causal.
Love the puff sleeve sweater!
Congratulations on 10 years, I love popping in to see what is trending ?
In my imagination, I have a fabulous NYE party to attend, so I am in that sequin jumpsuit. In real life, I’m interviewing and tryna find a new damn job, so I’m in one of those dope, printed pant suits.
The Neoprene Pencil Skirt and the Cowl Neck Metallic Dress
My favorite items are the peplum blazer, lace shift dress, and the plaid ruffle top.
I only shop Eloquii for work essentials but I want to try one of the suits for upcoming holiday parties. The contrast piping suits are gorgeous.

I have my eye on the Lace Shift Dress. Usually, when it comes to lace, I lean towards black. But this time around, I’m going to get red (cabernet). Mix it up a bit, y’know.
That red lace shift dress is everything! ?
Im loving the Tartan Plaid Coat!
Strapless Velvet Dress with Full Sleeves is gorgeous, but I need to go back and look at the holiday tops again for a couple of tops, something sparkle-y or sequin-y w a v-neck, ruching or wrap, close but not tight fitting… Congratulations on your 10 year anniversary!!
