A Girl in a Plus Size World


Tajuana Shyanne 

Plus size fashion has come a long way. From elastic waist jeans and mumuus, to fitted tops and skinny jeans.  It's about damn time the fashion industry realized that we like to look cute and fashionable too. Skinny chicks (no offense) aren't the only ones who can work an outfit.I must admit, I wasn't always comfortable with being plus size. Like so many women, I would wear baggy clothes to try and hide my body. When in reality I was only making myself look bigger. Once I embraced my curves, I started to have fun with fashion.  My best fashion advice for ALL women is to wear clothes that flatter your specific body type. I can't stand to see a woman who could have it going on, if only her shirt or pants were a little bit bigger.Some of my curvy girl inspiration comes from blogs such as this one (I'm not just saying that bc she's my homegirl LOL), gabifresh.com, & donnadaily.com, just to name a few. Just because a blog is not catered to plus size fashion, doesn't mean you can't get great ideas from it and tailor them to fit your own personal style. So for all you curvy girls who may feel you cannot rock the latest fashion trends, I want you to grab a friend, get out the house, and try some stuff on. Then repeat after me...I'm Curvy, Natural, & Loving It!

  1. From one curvy girl to another, THANKS! I used to hate shopping because I could never find anything to fit over my hips! I stumbled upon Gabi Fresh a year or so ago and was instantly inspired and got bit by the shopping bug. Now, I know exactly wear to go to find clothes that flatter me and I am not ashamed anymore to just try on something I like because sizes sometimes lie. Great blog!
