Chicagoans are far from shy when it comes to bragging about themselves. We don’t even know how to even hashtag humble brag. Chicago has produced some of the best of the best. I’m not the type that just throws out names but a few modern day change makers do come to mind. Oprah, Kanye, Jennifer Hudson, Chance The Rapper, Michelle Obama and her husband, my forever President, Barack Obama.
thefatgirloffashion looks to be added to the list of Chicago greats. Staying true to myself is very important. Fashion and beauty allow me to express myself without words. When I was trying to blend in I was silencing myself. That was one of the worst mistakes I’ve ever made. Blogging has shown me that I speak for so many women around the world. Like me they don’t wear a crop top to work or a super short skirt to church. We know how to switch up based on the situation we’re going to be in. However, As a plus size authority I do know that I can switch up my style and not worry about what others think.
I love mixing prints. I love adding a pop of color. I love being me. Fashion allows me to be the bold, funny and carefree fat girl. Yes, sometimes I get looks. *insert neck roll* lol. People can look but just don’t touch And if someone has something to say please believe they’ll catch these words, lol.
As one of a very small group of women in the Chicago plus size blogger niche I respect the great authority my voice has. Being born and raised in Chicago I’m stopped on the street by women all the time. Classmates, old friends and blog readers say fun things like I love the dress you had on Instagram or you have great eyebrows. We have more serious chats about self esteem or weight issues. I’m happy that thefatgirloffashion offers fashion and beauty advised with a message.

My snapchat friends were the first to know about the location I selected for my blog’s 3rd year anniversary brunch. They saw first hand my Beyonce’s Formation tour experience and a NYC trip for theCurvycon. Snaps showed L.A. for BlogHer and ATL for TCFStyleExpo and The MakeUp Show Chicago.
