It’s been a real adjustment from sitting RSVPing to attending a new product launch to preparing for a zoom meeting with a brand. Life is very different. What does defined style mean from a small square on a screen? Can we talk fashion inspo, pushing boundaries and identity all while being sheltered in place?

What influences my look or fashion rules I live by?
I’m starting to miss my social life, which includes traveling, attending events, and memorable fashion events appearances. Really start to miss living the life that any every black girl would enjoy.
I easily google “What did Tracey Ellis Ross in ….” every time I’m prepping for a must-attend event. I’m like Tracey Ellis Ross but make it plus size and affordable, lol. I’m obsessed with her the coolest auntie style. She dominates my mood board currently.
My number one fashion rule is:
WEAR WHAT MAKES YOU HAPPY!
Sometimes you have to get out your own way. Buy clothes you can see yourself wearing more than once and in different ways.
My favorite high-end designers?
I’m open to any designers that have an inclusive size range and flattering cuts. Just because I’m a big girl doesn’t mean I have to look like a box. Many of the top higher-end fashion brands are copying the hood looks but don’t offer larger sizes. Their sizes stop so small even if it’s something in your budget a plus-size woman can’t fit them. Clearly, they don’t want fat dollars. That’s why you have to be creative. So basically I’m don’t have a favorite because they don’t size for me. I’m more a fan of indie brands.
What’s on top of “Chicago It Girl: thefatgirloffashion budget-friendly wish-list?
Here are a few items on my wish list. I’m open to any brand that have an inclusive size range and flattering cuts. Just because I’m a big girl doesn’t mean I have to look like you shop from a box in the back of the store.
If this post was a tweet what would it say?
It’s ok to not follow the pack and live authenticity. Embrace your body and be unapologetically happy.
