Occupation… Blogger at, Brand Strategy Consultant, and Contributing editor at Marie Claire US.

Best known for… Being a pioneer within the plus-size fashion industry and my unabashedly feminine style!

Greatest Achievement… Creating a career that allows me to be creative, honest, and that inspires constant evolution.

Biggest Fashion Fail… When I tried to make “androgynous” style work on myself and somehow thought waistcoats and fedoras would be a good look for me; it wasn’t!

Best piece of advice you have been given… Never give up your integrity!

I never leave home without… A striking lipstick.

The best thing I ever bought was… The most perfect, broken-in leather jacket from Topshop 6-years ago. It is still one of my wardrobe staples!

The best place I’ve ever travelled to… Japan

The fashion item I would save in a fire… My wedding dress! A custom gown made by Christian Siriano.

If I could live anywhere in the world I’d live in… I get antsy when I’m in any one place too long – but my ideal life would be split between LA, NY, and London.

The app I can’t live without… VSCO Cam!! I love documenting my life in photos, and VSCO helps me achieve bright, clear pictures.

My favourite flavour of ice cream is… Honey-Lavender ice cream!

The fashion fad I can’t get on board with is… Ponchos! I’m all about the return of the 70s, but ponchos are where I cross the line.

If I could shop any brand (straight or plus), I’d fill my wardrobe with… If money were no object?! Prada!

The song that should be my soundtrack is… Beyoncé’s “Grown Woman”

My big goal in the next 12 months is…Keep designing, keep inspiring, and keep writing!
