My own style journey really started when I threw all the plus size fashion ‘rules’ I had been told my whole life out the window and stoped being afraid to wear certain trends because of my body type. Through forcing myself to step out of my comfort zone and be bold, I found the confidence to rock any garment and when you feel good in your own skin you can rock anything!
