Well, I suppose this is where I tell you all about me. First and foremost, thank you for taking the time to read The Curvy Fashionista. This is a long time coming for me! I have been in retail for about 11 years, supporting myself through college, working in various retail stores as a stylist, fashion expert, or assistant manager. While working in retail, I noticed that there were not many options for me, a proud size 14+. And when I refer to options, I mean the Contemporary, high fashioned, impeccably fitting, high quality fits that work for me and all of my curves! Shopping became an art- learning how to sniff out the latest designers that "got it." Working in retail exposed me to the fact that I was not alone, which at times was a relief and furthermore a frustration. If there are women out here like me, why aren't designers catering to our needs? Fast forward to my post graduate days in college and my entre to store management, here I learned about the inner workings of retail and how choices are made to clothe the modern day fashionista. Man, that was an amazing eye opener. I dedicated my MBA to research what was available and who was available in the Plus Size industry to hear OUR plea. Thus, The Curvy Fashionista was born. After I finished my MBA, I set out to share with all the Curvy.Confident.Chic. Fashionistas that we CAN don the latest and greatest of trends, fashions and styles that are made with US in mind! Please enjoy your readings and visits as I work hard to continue to share with you the best of all things CURVY! Keep it Curvy! Marie Denee The Curvy Fashionista
