As a brand new plus size/curvy/fat fashion blogger I have been exploring other blogs to get to know how this world has changed since I was an avid shopper in the 80s and 90s and to see which blogs I want to provide links to on my blog. My questions for myself have been, did I want variety or was I more interested in like minded bloggers? One of my priorities in blogging is to find and share clothes at the larger end of plus size fashion, or what I am calling “Curvier” on my blog. There is a lot of shopping and blogging in the world of size 24 and under and I find myself searching for size 24+ shopping and blogs. My mission is twofold, does it look like something they are wearing would fit me and did they point me to shopping I did not know about?
So I was thrilled when I stumbled across, When In Doubt Wear Purple and the blogger, Shawna, was wearing this fabulous skirt, that would clearly fit me, YAY. And guess what, not only did Shawna make it, she has a shop that SELLS them, Chubby Cartwheels, up to a size 32, and she will also make custom sizes. Obviously I hit the mother lode. I emailed and asked if I could feature her on Affatshionista, and she said of course. So imagine my surprise when I was cruising around the internet a few days later and there was When in Doubt Wear Purple featured in Plus Model Magazine. And then a few days later at Skorch Magazine. So I am happy to be a part of the curvy fashion world that is introducing you to Shawna of When in Doubt Wear Purple and her shop, Chubby Cartwheels…affinity
P.S. And guess what, I heard a rumor that Shawna is doing a giveaway from her shop so this is a perfect time to check her out!
