For a long time I’ve wanted to start a fashion blog. But because I’m a curvy plus size women, I didn’t think I could. How could I be a voice on fashion or beauty when I myself didn’t believed I deserved to be seen that way. I would buy amazing clothes that would always sit in my closet because when I put them on I felt like a fraud. In the past I would always wear dumpy clothes and not take care of my appearance in order to be less noticeable.
My clothes were a reflection of the way I felt about myself and projected that to everyone I met. My lovely husband encouraged me to buy myself nicer clothes but my excuse would always be ” I don’t want to buy new clothes because I don’t want to stay this size – I don’t want to encouragement myself to not lose weight by buying a lot of clothes.”
The truth is, the more I dressed that way the worse I felt about myself. I couldn’t possibly be motivated to be “beautiful” when I looked like crap. This was a dysfunctional way of thinking. I started getting on pinterest and finding looks that I loved. It was still disheartened to find that when I put together the looks I found, It didn’t look as good on me as on the models. So I went searching for curvy and plus size fashion inspiration. While I found a few great ones, there was still a lack for great average size girl fashion.
I had to overcome my fear of being noticed and allow myself to stop being a closet fashion freak. So I’m coming out of the closet! That is why I started this blog. This is a blog that is dedicated to women who have a love for style, inspiration for fashion and beauty, with no restriction to size, color, height or weight. You don’t have to be a super model, to be Haute.
