featured blogger: the curvy fashionista

Frédérik, here. It’s a big Internet out there. With so many tubes to navigate, many of them rusted out and filled with gunk, it’s easy to get lost. But fear not, dear Reader, we at The Fashionoclast are here to help with our Featured Blogger series. Our goal: to steer you in the right direction and find out what other fashion-minded folk are talking about. Every time we add a link to our Fantastic Fashionistas list, we’ll post about it. But enough about us...

Introducing Marie Denee whose 11 years of retail experience and MBA degree have led her to create a blog focused entirely on one of the most glaring injustices of the fashion industry. I subjected her to the Dreaded Questions Three to get to the heart of fashionable endeavour.
In a nutshell, tell us about the Curvy Fashionista.
The Curvy Fashionista was created last year out of frustration for finding the latest high fashion, contemporary fashions for the Curvy.Confident.Chic. Fashionista. Through my research, I have found, and continue to find, designers who specialize in all things curvy! From there, I have set out to provide resources to all plus size women who have that discerning eye for high fashion!

What inspires and influences your personal style?
I love effortless chic. I read the same magazines as the straight fashionistas and draw my inspirations from them as well as international fashion. What hinders me to a point is that I have to be more resourceful in finding those items to interpret those fashions to my fashionable desires. It can be a daunting task, but I love a challenge.

And your plan for world domination is…?
To bring high fashion to plus size and plus size to high fashion, all while keeping it Curvy.Confident.Chic.
There you have it, folks. After catching up on all your Fashionoclast reading, mouse on over to The Curvy Fashionista.
