The Curvy Fashionista


The Curvy Fashionista is your resource for highly fashionable finds for the Curvy.Confident.Chic. Plus Size Fashionistas


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?
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!


  1. Hey, Marie! Welcome and nice to see you here :) I'm glad you found you way over her to this great group of women. Your blog is wonderful. Keep up the good work!

  2. Welcome, Marie! Good luck with your blog. Yours *fashioned for plus sizes is the first I've seen like it.

    All best,


  3. Your blog is pretty as well as informative. I think you have a great idea with an unlimited audience. I ran three posts on women's weight and their self-esteem to help promote a book "Monster in her Mirror." I was surprised by the number of responses. You should do very well.
