As my first few posts, I wanted to focus on some of the people who got me where I am today. Not my friends or family (At this moment) BUT , the plus size fashion Bloggers whom I would read day and night. They are truly inspirations and I thank them immensely for their contributions to the plus size world!!
With their words of empowerment and charisma, they are changing the face of the fashion industry to be more inclusive in the world of High Fashion.
When I first got onto Tumblr, one of the first Plus Size Bloggers I encountered was GabiFresh…formerly known as Young, Fat and Fabulous caught my eyes in a hot second.
A Little Bit About GabiFresh:
Name: Gabrielle Gregg
How she describes her love for Fashion :
“Like most young, hip, and fabulous women, I love all things fashion. Alexander McQueen’s dresses give me chills, Balenciaga bags make me weak in the knees, and nothing can put a twinkle in my eye like an editorial spread on New York Fashion Week . I devour Vogue for breakfast, Elle for lunch, and W for dinner, only to then look you in the eye and inquire about dessert.”

So about that time Gabi Gregg came to my school and was young fat and fabulous…
And then I met her and it was amazing and everything was beautiful and nothing hurt.
But really though, today was such a good day compared to the past week. Except for the Wills shirts - every time I saw one I had to look away.
Gabi was amazing. She like ruled the assembly hall even though the guys in my grade totally weren’t that interested in her presentation but they loved it anyway.
Especially when she said “MTV’s larger audiences, no pun intended” and everyone laughed awkwardly and I wanted to cheer because I make jokes like that all the time and nobody gets them.
And then she met me and I told her I love fat fashion blogs and her tumblr and all that stuff. And she was like “do you have a blog?” and I said just a personal one but I want to make a more legit fashion blog or something and she and Alex were like DO IT.
