LoveBrownSugar Feature: Lovelyish.com

The lovely girls over at Lovelyish.com were nice enough to do a feature on me for their "Diary of a Fat Girl" series. I was both honored and flattered that they chose to spotlight me as a plus-sized fashionista. Special thanks to Jen for the feature! Be sure to check it out over at Lovelyish...

Here's an excerpt from my interview:

Lovelyish: You're obviously rocking it and your confidence is killer. Would you say that blogging affects your self-esteem in any way? Would you recommend it to others who may be on their journey to self-acceptance?

Christina: I definitely think it's an awesome self-esteem boost. It's one thing when your close friends tell you they love your style, but getting comments about my fashion choices from fellow bloggers and/or complete strangers from around the world gives me such an adrenaline rush! I think posting your looks takes a bit of confidence in and of itself because readers could always criticize you or leave negative comments. But once you're brave enough to post and you get positive feedback, nothing feels better.

Your looks are always executed flawlessly. I especially loved the outfit you wore in your entry "Platforms & Playgrounds" - the bold shoulders, the edgy accessories and those amazing lace-up booties - just perfect! But what I want do know is… what does a casual, just-running-to-the-grocery-store outfit look like for you?

Christina: For casual looks, I normally opt for simple pieces with really amazing details. I'm obsessed with leggings so it would most likely start there.  I have a few amazing pairs from H&M that have zippers on the sides which I think is a cute trendy detail for a staple. Depending on the season, I'd probably throw on an oversized tunic, a jeweled statement necklace and whatever flat shoe I'm obsessed with at the moment. My current shoe obsession is the Jaya Jelly Sandal from DVF (http://www.net-a-porter.com/product/60522). They're so cute and they remind me of my childhood days!
