This Something Vintage is my printed pleated skirt. I’ve gotta admit when I first saw this skirt I had no liking for it what-so-ever!!! But it grew on me, and now I love it. The print is unique and I’m loving it. I love that its so easy to match. To make the outfit appear a bit casual, I added a aero t-shirt, a blazer, belt, and a fun shoe.
2013 was a great year and we just want to end this year on a good note, by putting the spotlight on some curvy women who we think have great style. Whether they styled themselves or somebody else did it for them, we thought their styles were worth sharing. These women proved you don’t have to be a size 2 to be stylish.
Flaunt your CURVE-E-NESS!
Here we goooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!
Amber Riley is definitely my favorite curvy girl, she knows how to rock her curves, and plus 2013 was a big year for her… I mean she did win Dancing with the stars. She proved to the world that no matter your size, no matter your color you can do it, you can achieve your dreams. She danced her way to winning that trophy. You go girl!
When we first decided that we were going to team up together by creating a blog that would just explode and color your already fantastic world, we knew first hand that the theme would be any and everything about us Curvy Girls.
Do me a favor, open up a magazine (preferably Vogue, People, Elle etc) what do see? Well, I’ll tell you what I don’t see… I don’t see too many curvy women plastered on every page that we so often flip through. Yes, we may occasionally see a woman with hips and thighs like ours that the industry triumphantly labeled as “plus size” but that’s not usually seen.
Why you ask? Because it’s not the norm.
So, yes, Vogue has had Adelle on their cover (shocker by the way) and recently Elle had Melissa McCarthy, who is also “plus size” on their cover as well, but she was covered in a big dark coat!
Maybe things are looking up you say…
But yet still on every issue there’s a thin girl who’s legs don’t touch that the fashion industry calls attractive. I’m not here to bash thin girls, I have thin friends, and family members– Love them!
But the idea of fash-CURVES-ion is to celebrate women with curves.
We don’t want to hide or cover up our curves, we want to show it off and at the same time being the modest beautiful fashionista that we are. I don’t care if you’re a size 10, 14, 18, or a 22 and above, your fabulous!!!
And if you love fashion, and in love with looking good and looking your best, then this is the place for you. Our blog is the place where you’re lifted up! A place where you can say “I love me just the way that I am, and damn proud of these curves”
We want you to be bold and comfortable in your own skin. We’re here to help you with that.
Btw we are your fash-CURVES-ion bloggers
