Your reaction to our first-ever extended sizes lookbook was so positive, we couldn’t wait to release another. To bring our newest styles to life, we partnered with the dynamic & multi-hyphenate Reah Norman. Since we already know & love her, we thought we’d give you the chance to fall in love with her, too!
Has your blog (or blogging) influenced your personal style?
Having my blog has definitely made me practice what I preach and challenge myself with fashion. I get stuck in a fashion rut and tend to go for the same wardrobe basics, especially for work, when I am dressing the models and the focus is not on me. Showcasing new styles, trends, and designers on my blog has made me dive in and try things in a much bolder way.
What would you say to those who think that women above a certain size can’t wear certain items like stripes, or large prints?
Seriously, who made these rules? I would say that is ridiculous! It is never about whether or not you can wear a trend or style, but how you wear it! It is all about how you want to showcase your personal style and express yourself with fashion, and it is a different journey for everyone, regardless of size. Wear those stripes and bold prints with confidence!
What’s the best piece of style advice you’ve ever been given?
The best style advice I have received is something that I tell all of my clients – you have to know the rules before you can break them. Know your body type and what works best for you, and then make your style decisions, even if that means throwing all the rules out the window.
If you had to choose, what is one essential piece from the look book?
Ahhhhh! Just one??? I think it has to be the Studio Midi Skirt. I love that it comes in SO many colors and I feel like a million bucks with it on! An a-line skirt is a wardrobe staple that will never go out of style!
Quick! You can only grab three pieces from your closet for a surprise vacation. What would they be?
Skinny jeans, a dress that I can wear day and night, and a swimsuit, because hopefully we are going somewhere with a pool or a beach!
