Hi all,

My name is Rebecca, and I’m a plus-size fashion-loving graduate student living in North Carolina. I’ve been reading plus-sized fashion blogs for about 3 months now, and I can honestly say they have changed me. I have a confidence now that wasn’t present before. I am able to feel pretty being myself, and I am slowly (but surely!) allowing myself to experiment with clothes outside of “what fat people should wear.” I’m truly enjoying this blog community, and I wanted to be part of it. So, here I am, speaking my words, loving my clothes, and sharing it all with you. I’ve had other blogs before. One detailing my hopes and journey on losing weight, one detailing my studies in graduate school (I’m studying English: Composition and Rhetoric), and a tumblr just for inspiration, but I wanted this one to be different. This blog is for the “plus” side of me. Where I can look at pretty clothes (that fit!!) and feel safe in a world that promotes positive self-image and love. I’m hoping what I find here will translate into other areas of my life.

If you are reading and have a blog of your own, please let me know in the comments. I love seeing/reading about different styles!
