Describe your personal style.
Kelly Bundy-inspired. Leather lover, bodycon obsessed, a fan of all things spandex and lace, and usually caught in an off the shoulder or backless piece.
Explain your Instagram name.
My Instagram name is Honor Curves. It is a play on my first name which is Honorine and then the Curves is pretty self-explanatory. My tagline on my Instagram is: "Own your curves, accept yourself, never apologize for your beauty." I believe "Honor Curves" encompasses that. When we honor ourselves I think wonderful things happen. All women are beautiful, and curves are one of those special things that women have that make us special.
Where do you shop?
ASOS/ASOS Curve, Black Milk Clothing, American Apparel, Aritzia, Rue 107, Blu Blush, Envy ATL, Tikedi.
What does being a fatshionista mean to you?
Being a fatshionista means embracing my curves and finding outfits that make MY heart sing. It also means sharing tips together with other girls who want to dress fashionably/sexy/chic and feel beautiful in their clothes. I love to inspire and be inspired by others in the fatshionista community.
What is your advice to other plus size girls?
My advice to other plus size girls is OWN IT. You are beautiful. Self love radiates out and it has to start inside. Life is too short to not wear what you want or feel beautiful. Each one of us is unique and special and curves are truly beautiful. Confidence will get you everywhere in life. Don't be afraid to let your light shine, my curvy pals.
Where do you draw fashion inspiration?
I draw a lot of my fashion inspiration from other curvy girls/bloggers/Instagrammers. One woman in particular has truly inspired me and that is Nadia Aboulhosn. I don't think I fully embraced my place in fashion until I saw her ease in dressing in whatever she wants and how GORGEOUS she looks doing it. She is a huge inspiration to me and I recommend her blog to anyone who needs a curvy fashion boost.
What's your best beauty secret?
Pink lipstick, Biotherm skincare, and a whole lot of bodycon and leather keep me feeling beautiful all the time. I believe that keeping a tube of "Pink Vibrations" lipstick by Elizabeth Arden can provide a beauty boost at any time of day.
What's your favorite piece in your wardrobe?
My favorite piece in my wardrobe is a Wilfred leather jacket I bought at Aritzia in 2007. We are going to be in our 7th year together in 2013 and this jacket is still my best buddy. It was a bit of an investment piece at roughly $500.00, but I truly believe it's worth it. Every woman should have one amazing leather biker jacket.
What's a trend you foresee this fall?
Studs and leather are already everywhere and they are continuing to be everywhere. I think curvy women should invest in peplum, this is one beautiful style on curvy women. Lastly, get yourself into some army looks: cargo pants or dark khaki greens. Super hot!
