Out with the Old – In with the Bold
Its been a crazy beginning to 2017. I have been ecstatic and overwhelmed at the same time with the amount of love I have received. I have been wanting to dedicate a post to my journey as a ‘plus size fashion’ blogger and certain goals I have created along the way.
I get asked so many questions on daily basis , where girls dm’ me asking – How did I start? How did I become a plus size fashion blogger? How can they be one as well? I have no one answer to these questions but I do have something to share.
– Growing up, I always had an eye for fashion. I was very influenced by my grandmother who at the time had a fashion boutique. Growing up in that environment I developed certain qualities and always experimented with fashion, which also lead to doing a fashion designing course.
One of my favourite or only hobby in my teen years – was wearing my favourite outfit and posing in front of the camera. Now when I look back it’s what I have been doing ever since. When you combine fashion and photography and effortless fashion blogger is born. I have never hesitated to pose and flaunt- that gave me the confidence to be who I am.
I create something in my head, a style and how its suppose to look and I thrive to make it come alive in photos.
I started my blog in 2014
You can check out my first post here & here I had a phone, I went to a decent location , I created a blog on blogger – I wrote a little and that’s how the journey began. Its no rocket science. But more than this, there was a desire to show ‘what she can wear’ – I can wear it too. It all about getting out of your comfort zone and finding what suits you the best. This blog that I started as a hobby as now become my full-time job. I partner with brands and do various collaborations but in this process the key is to always stay true to myself and my audience.
I never understood the concept of ‘plus size fashion’ I just happen to be plus size and I just happen to love fashion. Everyone has struggles, even I did. But my love for fashion and the desire to do something in this field gave me a confident voice. The society portrays fashion in a very different way & social media also creates an impact. But I am here using social media to change the game in a small way. I am using the resources available to me to create a positive impact. ‘Body confidence’ is not just a big word that looks good, The struggle is real but its not impossible.
‘You shouldn’t wear that, you will look fat in it’ ‘ ‘That short dress won’t suit you, your legs will look fat’ ‘ That dress is too tight, look at your belly showing’ ‘ Crop tops for you? Seriously!!
