Our Style Journey

      As a plus-size girl and now woman, I've always had a love-hate relationship with fashion. The ability to express myself through fashion, I LOVED. Still, I hated that I could hardly participate in fashion due to many designers failing to offer the trendier clothing in my size. I wanted and still desire to change this by creating a space for girls and women to express themselves freely through clothing.
