A Holiday ELQ&A with Marie Denee


This holiday season, we take a moment to give thanks to a few of the many who’ve championed our fashion-first mission from the start. Now, we flip the camera on them and see how they holiday, from festive traditions to some getting ready tips. For your next holiday #XOQ inspo, check out an exclusive ELQ&A with Marie Denee, the power-house behind The Curvy Fashionista.

Let’s play word association: “Holiday.” Go: Family.

Favorite Holiday Tradition? On New Year's Day, we celebrate Christmas and open gifts then! It started as a way to wait for me, since I lived in the Bay Area and could not get home in time and grew into something we love to do and buck trends with!

3 things on your wishlist? For Christmas? Ohhhhhhhh... I have not thought that far... ohhhh I want a Mevo webcam for streaming, an amaaaazing wig, ohhh and a fly new purse (I have been eyeing some of the Coach bags!).
