"I've always been the biggest girl in my class, pretty much all my life. I used to wear big jackets and sweaters to cover up my extra large hips and butt. It wasn’t until I was in college that I started to embrace my curves and started to encourage others to do the same."
I have a really wide range of things I like. I typically like a polished look. I am very girly but I also love the boho look. I have areally wide range of things I like. I love a slouchy sweater with leggings and boots(my winter staple outfit). Every season I have a staple outfit that you can catch me in at least once a week in that season.
Where are your favorite places to shop?
I love ASOS and Forever 21. My newest discovery is Kmart. I love their LYS brand.
What does being a fatshionista mean to you?
A fatshionista expresses her true self and is not worried about what others think. Just because I'm big doesn't mean I can't wear short dresses. A fatshionista does not accept the insecurities that society tries to place on her. Instead she wears her short dresses proud and is unapologetic about her size or what she is wearing.
What's your advice to other plus size girls?
My advise to other plus size girls is to comfortable with themselves. When you are comfortable in your skin you don't worry about what others think about you. You can just enjoy being yourself.
Where do you draw fashion inspiration?
I draw inspiration from current trends. I also draw a lot of inspiration from plus size bloggers, Gabi Fresh, Diary of a Fatshionista, and Girl With Curves.
What's your best kept beauty secret?
There are so many things in my wardrobe I love. The first thing that comes to my mind is my Michael Kors tan colored moto leather jacket. It's so versatile and comfy!

I love the sneaker wedge. I also love the deep wine/ burgundy colored lip.
What’s something that the fashion industry should know about plus size women?
