Let's talk blogging. I thought about starting a fashion/style blog for a few years. It took me some time to decide to actually do it because I tend to procrastinate...I also rationalized: There are already a number of EXCELLENT curvy fashion bloggers (who I consistently follow), how will my blog be any different? Finally though, with much encouragement from my husband and close friends, I decided to take the plunge. Why?
In my opinion, there aren't nearly enough images/resources of/for real sized, real life women flooding social media. If the average woman is considered to be plus size, why don't at least 50% of the images of women on social media and the net reflect that?
I love to find inspiration in the styles of other women, but I noticed that when surfing Pinterest, FB, IG, and fashion blogs- most women, although stylish, did not look like me, which led me to feel uninspired.
It is my hope that one day, when I look for images of style inspiration, the majority of images found, will be real sized, real life women. Being curvy is nothing to be ashamed of. Let's show the world, the media, and our peers: WE ARE HERE TO STAY!
