Accessories and Big Girls: A friendship made in heaven...

The proliferation of actual plus size fashion options are a very recent thing.  And I would even argue that the options that are available aren't even that great, yet and still, they are options.  But this big girl here would have been dead if she had waited for the plus size fashion industry to catch up with the straight size fashion industry before trying to establish my own distinctive style.  I was fat before fat was "cute"; before fat was "okay" and before all of the body positivity movements that exist today. And I'm good!  Trust me, I am.  I have ALWAYS been limited in my clothing options, but accessories have always been the thing that set me apart from others.  I have worn "statement jewelry" before it was trendy; been flaunting my African heritage before it was in; and been wearing bangles, baubles, and big pieces while everyone else was wearing diamond studs and tennis bracelets.

My fashion sense is usually limited to a few colors, prints, and silhouettes that I favor, but accessories have always made my ensembles next level.  Here, the baubles that I have amassed over the past few months, and guess what?  They are all from Buffalo Exchange so you know they were super, duper, inexpensive!  So while building a wardrobe, make sure you curate an accessories "wardrobe" that complements your style and speak volumes about you.  Be well...
