So I’ve never been your typical skinny girl. My mom has curves so naturally I was bound to have them too. Don’t get me wrong, I have a goal weight that I strive to be and I know I will get there one day soon. But until that time comes, I refuse to hide behind frumpy clothes and feel like I can’t be sexy, fashionable, and fabulous just because I’m curvilicious!

Torrid stores and Torrid.com, Macys, Ashley Stewart, Target, missphit.com, and forever21.com (plus size line only available online) are great places to start. My rule of thumb is accessorizing. You can take a fabulous top and some tights, leggings, or jeggings and make it work. Don’t forget the heels and clutch to top it all off. So curvy girls let’s step out and declare that that Curvy girls are here to stay!!!
