It has been an eventful year over here at The Curvy Fashionista! We have clocked in a full year in Atlanta, held two awesome events, hit a few new milestones and just recently, celebrated SEVEN YEARS! But as we wrap up 2015, I wanted to share our Top 15 plus size stories from the blog that you may have missed, forgotten, or that are new to you!
This year has been quote full circle, acknowledging personal growth and fears, daring myself to push and leap outside my box, and much of this growth is reflected in the content shared on the blog! Our roundup includes top posts about the blog, news shared on the blog, and a bit of personal milestones that has helped me with the blog!
