Every week, we will feature a plus size blogger that we think is worthy of a spotlight. This week, we’d like to introduce you to Shainna of A Thick Girl’s Closet.
Shainna is a blogger and model, based in New Jersey, who loves clothes, shoes, boys and anything sexy. She’s fun and has the most wonderful personality. I had the pleasure of meeting her a few times at various fashion events and she has always been genuine and down-to-earth, not to mention she is confident, poised, regal and statuesque. She is who is she is with no apologies or doubts. And that is what we love the most about her.
Her style is fearless, bold and so much fun. When it comes to fashion, she has impeccable taste and knows what works for her body. She shows her readers that you don’t have to be boxed into one type of style when it comes to fashion. She shows herself in an array of outfits/looks and it is really a testament to the belief that confidence is the best accessory for a girl to have in fashion and life overall.
Shay, as many know her as, was featured in our August 2014 denim issue in our Real Woman/Real Model series where she was chosen along with four other PMM readers to model denim in our featured fashion editorial.
She not only blogs about plus size fashion in her unique, versatile way but she also blogs about beauty, hair, health and topics that empower women to accept themselves and be confident in who they are. She’s candidly honest in her experiences and her blog is one that is very personal and inspiring.
