STILETTO SPOTLIGHT

Hello Divas! I would like to thank you all for supporting me and this blog. I started blogging as a hobby and had no clue that I would become so passionate about it. I never thought in a million years that I could start this blog, let alone have people actually read (and enjoy) what I post. I must admit that I feel like a little fish in a big pond when it comes to this. Before I started my blog I was oblivious to how large the plus size blogger community really is. Over this short period of time I have met so many bloggers that inspire me and keep me on my a-game, and I love them for that. Which leads me to the topic of this post.

I decided to start a segment called STILETTO SPOTLIGHT which features other plus size bloggers, those of which whom inspire me, educate me, and give me all kinds of life with their ensemble choices.

This girl right here is AMAZE! We have similar taste in clothing and I love how she styles her looks. I would literally see pieces online and wonder, "how would I style this". It's been several occasions where I would visit her blog and (I lie to you  not) she would be wearing those same pieces. Not only wearing them, but rocking the hell out of them (Dammit Dionne! lol). I just love her effortless style. So without further ado, meet Dionne of Super Size My Fashion.

 
Where are you from?
I'm from Rotterdam, a city in the Netherlands.
 
How would you describe your style?
To be real honest, I think I don't have a specific style, I just wear what I like. That can vary from girly, classic and cute to a more tough or trendy look. Overall I prefer girly and sparkly, I love all that glitters :) Oh, and animal prints too!

 
How does your life influence your style?
Being a wife, mom and having an office job doesn't really influence my style. I don't have specific "work attire" for example, or "casual mommy clothes". I just wear what I like and what fits my mood for that day.
 
Why did you start blogging?
I started blogging when I found a whole new plus size shopping world online which inspired me so much, I had to share. I was also inspired by other blogs, and the fact that there are not so many plus size blogs in the Netherlands pushed me over the edge to try this. Beautiful clothes can get me so excited that I just needed an outlet. :)
 
 
 
What are your favorite places to shop?
I mainly shop online, my favorite places to shop are Asos (curve and main), New Look, Forever21, H&M and Dorothy Perkins.


 
Where does your confidence come from?
My confidence comes from discovering that there's more to me than just my body size/weight. I am a optimistic, happy woman that loves life and tries to infect others with her happy mood (although I also have my cranky days, lol). A big part also comes from not having to worry anymore when I need to buy new clothes since the plus size community is rising more and more and has so much to offer to us nowadays.
 

What would you say to women who's feeling insecure about their body or size?
First of all, I think any woman is insecure about her body or size on some days, regardless of her size, it can depend on your mood. But overall I would like to say that trying to accept who you are and embracing you and your body can give so much relief and peace. Try to find what works for you, I really gained more confidence by dressing in what I love and doing what makes ME happy instead of trying to please others. First look to find all the things you love about yourself and accept that the things you don't love about yourself are a part of you too. If the negative outweighs the positive than maybe it's time to make some changes, but do it for yourself, not others. It's so easy to say to bigger girls that are unhappy with themselves to simply "lose weight", while that's not always the answer.
 


What advice would you give to an aspiring fashion blogger?
I would say go for it but do it as a hobby, don't try to make a living out of it. If it happens to go that way, good for you, but don't solely do it to get freebies etc. Always stay true to yourself, don't try to portray someone you're not.

Thank you Dionne for being my first feature. You have awesome taste and your style is the bomb! (did I just say "the bomb"? haha). Thanks again girly!!
