Hey you! I’ve been a fashionista at heart since I was a little girl (quite literally). Growing up with the family nickname of “Bean” you can imagine I’m a shortie! I have a love hate relationship with my past athletic experience of playing field hockey. It’s blessed me with some curves, but now I always struggle with finding the right pair of pants that fit perfectly in length, waist, and butt!
I can definitely relate to Carmen’s struggle in the movie “The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants”. But when you think about it more seriously it is so inaccurate! The thought is there, don’t get me wrong I’m all for a movie telling a story about besties, but c’mon, there’s no way the same pair of pants fit everyone! I think back to when the movie came out, as an innocent 8 year old, having no idea how much of a struggle it will soon become for me.
Luckily us curvy girls have been noticed more and more by many brands! I love that in so many of my favorite stores I can now find “Curvy Fit” made just for us! No more gapping at the waist because I have to go up a size. But then there’s the vertically challenged piece that makes it even harder. So many brands have their “Petite” section too but that’s rarely one in the same! Standing at only 5’1’’ I’m the queen of cuffed bottoms or tucked into boots. There’s the RARE chance that something is too short on me, and if I’m honest thats typically because I shrunk it in the wash.
There was only one thing I could do because of this, take these lemons and turn them into lemonade. I have always (and will always) love fashion. There’s so many ways to express your personality from day to day! From everyday neutrals to flashy patterns, I wear it all! I can’t wait to share my journey with you and I hope you try out some of my ideas. From fall and winter, to spring and summer dressing fashionable is always an option!
