Fierce Chicks (Volume1)
This post is dedicated to fabulous, ferocious ladies who put it all out there. They aren't cowering behind oversized t-shirts and baggy pants. They don't throw around sentences like "Oh, I can't wear that" or "That's not for me."
No. These confident bitches wear skinny jeans and crop tops. They buy straight sizes and make them work. Can't find it? They make it. They wear the clothes. Clothing NEVER wears them.
Being a plus-sized fashionista requires trial, error, and a whole mess of courage. Wear what you like. Wear what you want. But, for God's sake, don't put something away because you "can't pull it off". If it makes you feel good, rock it.
There are so many more Fierce Chicks out there. I'll start with 3, and share the love of some more real soon!
Fierce Chick #1
Velvet d'Amour, Editor-in-Chief of Volup2
Okay, maybe I'm biased. I had a short-lived gig as the Women Who Rock columnist for Volup2. It was an amazing time contributing to those two issues, and I was so sad to walk away due to lack of time. The busy life of a teacher makes a better combination with a blog than a column with deadlines!
Velvet is a plus-sized supermodel. Pretty much the only one. She's walked for Jean Paul Gaultier and John Galliano, was featured in French Vogue, and is a ferocious photographer in her own right. Volup2 is the love child of her passions for promoting beauty of all kids and her skills in photography. Fierce. Chick.
Fierce Chick #2
Tiffany from Fat Shopaholic
Tiffany has amazing hair and even more amazing style. She rocks crop tops and skinnies. She has tons many piercings (which I can relate to!) and is not afraid to mix colors, patterns, and styles. She takes risks, and puts herself all on the line. Her blog reflects that with a mixture of fashion, life anecdotes, and book/music reviews. Check her out!
Fierce Chick #3
Georgina from Cupcake's Clothes
Where Tiffany is all spice, Georgina is all sugar. As sweet and mild as she looks, Georgina packs a punch. She oozes confidence, and dresses for herself. Her style mixes modern trends with a healthy dose of quirky pastels and old-timey accents.
There you have it. 3 really fierce chicks.
