Big Beautiful Black Girls

"If loving fashion is a crime, we plead guilty"

Hello Ladies!!! I'm so excited for this feature!!! Before starting my blog, I was very shy about showing off my curves, until I came across Big Beautiful Black Girls. "Big Beautiful Black Girls" showcased beautiful women embracing their curves in stylish outfits! Ashlee Hinds, the founder of Big Beautiful Black Girls, showcases her love of fashion and trends through very stylish and inspiring women. Ashlee states "Our aim with the help from various plus size fashion bloggers is to illustrate that you can have a personal style regardless of your size", and her blog definitely does this! The pictures shown below are from "Big Beautiful Black Girls" blog, I was only able to name certain models in the pictures.

1. Where do you shop at? 
Like any other girl I love to shop, some of my favorite stores are Dots , Forever 21,Jc Penny and any thrift store I can find just to name a few.

2. What does fashion mean to you? 
Sigh, fashion means so much to me, it’s one of my first loves and what I adore most about it , is how it can define you as a person. From the colors you choose, the styles, the accessories that all combine to give you an overall fit that is unique for you.

3. What’s your personal style? 
Hahah I don’t believe I have a personal style, it’s usually goes to my mood that day but however do love vintage and rocker chic stuff.

4. What made you become a blogger? 
You are probably the first person to ask me this, where do I start?
I officially started to blog when I discovered tumblr back in 2010 it was mainly just something for me to do and clear my head when I came home from school. On tumblr they weren’t any blogs show casing plus size black ladies and if they were it was mainly nudes nothing positive and that really disgusted me. Around that time it was a very difficult time for the plus size community and not much people had faith that plus size ladies had much fashion sense.
So I combined my two hobbies photography and writing which then set off my ongoing addiction for blogging .
My blog is lifestyle fashion blog which I’ve dedicated to ladies just like me, showcasing the love for fashion and the greatest trends.The blog offers full-figured fashionistas leads on sales, shopping tips, food & health tips , fashion updates, and even previews of future plus size collections .
My aim with the help from various plus size fashion bloggers is to illustrate that you can have a personal style regardless of your size.

5. What’s your favorite piece in your wardrobe? 
A very simple but quite unique lion ring, I’ve picked this because the symbolic meaning of lions, as one might imagine, primarily deals with strength. Other than a symbol for strength, other symbolic attributes of the lion include: courage, power ,royalty, dignity, authority ,dominion, justice, wisdom and ferocity. All of these attributes I see in myself and firmly believe that this generation and the upcoming generation should implement in their lives.

6. What gives you that BOLD statement in your outfits?
My strength gives me that bold statements , you gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. Too many times people are afraid to try new stuff because they are too scared or worried about what others may think. Sometimes you just have to say to yourself, 'I lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.' 

7. What spring trend are you excited to incorporate in your outfits?
I always get happy when spring comes around seeing the bright colors implemented in designers collection really brings me joy. However this time around they dropped a bomb on us by placing emphasis on the black and white looks. I’m mostly excited about the statement glasses but I can definitely see my self playing around with the peekaboo pieces.
