I've been dreaming of starting this blog for several months and many of you have shown me so much positive support and encouragement! Thank you!
Welcome to "Curvy Girl in a Skinny Fashion World!"
I fell in love with Fashion as a young girl. I dreamed of being a fashion designer and creating amazing wedding gowns and couture dresses. I have broadened my horizons but haven't lost that dream. In fact, I began pursuing that dream for the first time this year.
Being curvy is a blessing and a curse! I love my shape. I feel feminine and unique. I feel aproachable and attractive. The life of curves was not always a part of me. In fact, I used to be a stick. Then, I became a woman. I hit 25 and weight started to pack on and hang on for dear life. Now, 28- about 185 lbs and a size 14/16- I am finding it harder and harder to find modern fashions to fit and flatter my curvy figure.
Many of you have shared this common problem as well. I hope to find and introduce companies that make clothing in OUR sizes that is fashionable and comfortable. I also want to share some of my own tricks of the trade for dressing our body shape.
On the same note, I am a HUGE lover and seller of Vintage Fashions. I want to share why vintage clothing can be just as modern but often times a better fit for a curvy gal especially if you're on a budget like myself.
Since it's the beginning of 2012, I thought it to be a perfect time to explore this blog concept and engage in a community of other Fashion lovers and curvy girls. Many of you have even just made New Year's resolutions to figure out how to get into a certain size, or even embrace your own body as is. We can learn about each other's weight loss/ gain stories and share resources for shopping and more!
Feel free to contact me with your own body conscious questions/ fashion looks/ resources and I'll be sure to share them here!
