Fatshionista Files: Rochelle

Rochelle, a current Little Rock, Arkansas resident, has such feminine and elegant style. Her look is always so polished and flawless. Rochelle's killer curves and confidence are the perfect accessory to any outfit. Exemplifying a fatshionista, this gorgeous gal's journey to confidence is quite inpsiring.
"I've always been the biggest girl in my class, pretty much all my life. I used to wear big jackets and sweaters to cover up my extra large hips and butt. It wasn’t until I was in college that I started to embrace my curves and started to encourage others to do the same."
Describe your personal style.
I have a really wide range of things I like. I typically like a polished look. I am very girly but I also love the boho look. I have areally wide range of things I like. I love a slouchy sweater with leggings and boots(my winter staple outfit). Every season I have a staple outfit that you can catch me in at least once a week in that season.  

Where are your favorite places to shop?
I love ASOS and Forever 21. My newest discovery is Kmart. I love their LYS brand.

What does being a fatshionista mean to you?
A fatshionista expresses her true self and is not worried about what others think. Just because I'm big doesn't mean I can't wear short dresses. A fatshionista does not accept the insecurities that society tries to place on her. Instead she wears her short dresses proud and is unapologetic about her size or what she is wearing.

What's your advice to other plus size girls?
My advise to other plus size girls is to comfortable with themselves. When you are comfortable in your skin you don't worry about what others think about you. You can just enjoy being yourself.  

Where do you draw fashion inspiration?
I draw inspiration from current trends. I also draw a lot of inspiration from plus size bloggers, Gabi Fresh, Diary of a Fatshionista, and Girl With Curves.

What's your best kept beauty secret?
 What's your favorite piece in your wardrobe?
There are so many things in my wardrobe I love. The first thing that comes to my mind is my Michael Kors tan colored moto leather jacket. It's so versatile and comfy!  

What's a trend you foresee/love for the fall?
I love the sneaker wedge. I also love the deep wine/ burgundy colored lip.

What’s something that the fashion industry should know about plus size women?
We are not trying to cover ourselves up. We want the same clothes you design for skinny girls, just in a larger size.

Stay connected with Rochelle.

  1. She's from Arkansas too! Whoop whoop! I absolutely love her last outfit. Everything she's wearing needs to jump into my closet.

  2. She has an amazing style! Very lovely lady. And I agree with the last part that we want the same clothes skinny girls have. Just in OUR sizes!
