My Style is... Feminine, Classic, and a little Preppy

Dress: SWAK Designs

DON'T OVERTHINK IT I went through a period when I was trying to be a trendsetter and bought clothing that I would never “really” wear. This left me with a closet full of things I hated. So I stopped caring what people thought and embraced my love for classic, simple looks. I own a lot of black because I like it. I just dress in a way that is comfortable for me. At the end of the day, I feel my best when I look my best and that’s all that matters.

"There is no 'good' or 'bad' body shape. We all deserve the right to wear whatever makes us happy." Jeans: Simply Be, Top: Rebdolls

Wear what you want, not what others want to see on you.

'Flattering' is a term that we’ve become beholden to and it has no real meaning.

My Style CHANGES Daily "I’m currently experimenting with mixing super girly pieces with menswear and

akti : eSh Dress Dress: Torrid

I’m loving it!"

What inspires me... Fat liberation... I want to work on my style through the

lens of fat activism. I want to challenge my feelings about body positivity, my fatness and gender, to figure out what I really love and want to wear.

We’ve all been socialized to think that there are certain things we can and can not wear because of how others perceive us, and I want to know what Dress: eShakti

my style would look like without that socialization. It’s not easy, and it takes a lot of introspection, but it has been incredibly worth it and SO FUN!

Trends I'm loving: I am obsessed

with leggings & wear them almost everyday! Easy way to add a pattern or color to a look. My other favorite thing is skulls. I wear them with everything all year long & even have them on my engagement ring! Dress: ASK Fashion

I started my blog... ... as a way to share my journey as a plus size fashion designer who also designs for plus size women, chronicling how I'm making my dreams happen, one step at a time. I thought it could help other women to be bold and step outside their fashion comfort zones. Let them know that a designer was hearing their concerns, wants and needs! My brand ASK Fashion is focused on dresses (designed & created by me) and I am currently working on developing a plus size jacket line called Rose Riot.

Dress, Leggings: Torrid

Try something new even if it makes you uncomfortable. You might be surprised!

What inspires me... Women who are not afraid to go after what they want and deserve and do not apologize for it.
