How long have you been blogging?

Stay Tuned…

What or who inspired you to become a fashion blogger/influencer? What led you to it?

Wow! So much has inspired me to be where I am. I would say being 100% comfortable in my skin and wanting everyone to feel this same freedom, would be the biggest inspiration.

I honestly had no clue that I would be here, in this space, but there is something bigger than me that is driving this ship forward and letting my image and voice be heard.

Growing up, I’ve seen so many women strive to be someone or something that they weren’t, trying to fit the social norms. No matter if I fit it, I made a vow to be genuinely happy with myself and share that light with others which landed me here.

I find myself, yeah, showing my style influence but I think it’s imperative to share a word of encouragement and letting your image speak volumes of strength.

Also, I was inspired to show people that what you look like doesn’t determine who you are, where you can go and who you can influence.

There are so many misconceptions of how a woman, plus size woman or a black plus size woman is supposed to be and I always want to share my life living outside of the box and encourage others to do the same.

What is your favorite asset? Your legs, arms, waist? How do you play that up?

I honestly don’t have a favorite; my body works like a compilation of wins!!

Even the areas that I like less than others still compliment my body, which makes it uniquely mine. I can say I have style tips for my specific body type!

Like, I always shop my blazers oversize, to go over my hips. This allows me to belt it, to make a more contoured fit or to layer comfortably.

 Wrap dresses are my best friend. I have a short torso and long legs, so heels help elongate my figure when in pants and dresses.

What are the challenges, if any, you face in being plus-size?

Even though the plus community has come such a long way; I still CANT FIND JEANS I LOVE, lol. I think that will always be my gripe with fashion.

Unless I create them myself!

What’s your favorite thing about being plus-size?

My favorite thing about being plus sized is my curves and filling out everything that I wear.

What’s your favorite thing about being an influencer?  

I believe my favorite thing about being a blogger is the sharing of love, information and building a community of people who ultimately have the same goal, which is to love themselves unconditionally.

Who/what are your favorite designers/brands?

My wardrobe consists of so many favorites but to name a few: Target lol, Lane Bryant which I have been wearing middle school, Jibri, Zelie for She, Eloquii, Curved by Sylvia Mollie and 11 Honore etc.

Okay, Miss Kenni Powe, Describe your personal style!

I would describe my personal style as eclectic, sexy, transitional and unpredictable. I feel like I have so many layers or many personalities to my style.

One day I can be a plain Jane and the next I am mixing every pattern created.

I like to have fun when it comes to my style and always thinking outside of the box or trying something new.

Which blogger inspire you? Plus or straight size! Any bloggers currently on your radar?

I have so many bloggers that inspire me in so many facets of my life from mommy bloggers to lifestyle to relationships or to just living out loud, unapologetically. Just because these ladies are just bomb, influence in color was the latest gem that I found.

I feel like they collectively embody some of the core values that I have of sisterhood and striving to be heard in the marketplace not only as women of color but as bloggers in their respective genres, so they are amazing; Kelly Augustine is just wrecking bomb of bloggers.

Shout out to my fav group of mommy bloggers who inspire me (TheCrunchyMommy, Ashley Dorough, Meg Boggs, Katie Crenshaw).

And I can’t forget the many staples in the plus community like TCF, Maui Bigelow and Cee Cee, Garner Style and so many more!

What do you think about here plus size fashion is today, versus a few years back?

Plus fashion today has taken major leaps and bounds versus the plus that I grew up knowing.

I believe plus today represents a woman that wants to be seen, heard and has her own character and say so.

When I was growing up plus fashion was just a bunch of stretchy fabrics and dark colors but now its more expressive, creative and less dismissive.
