Marie Denee is her name and fashion blogging is her game!
Marie is a “plus size fashion, style expert, and blogger.” Using her retail experience where she worked in management as well as a stylist and fashion expert, she was able to use her knowledge and skills to create one of the hottest websites for plus size and curvy women, The Curvy Fashionista.

What whaaaaaaat! Get excited!
I was so ecstatic to get this opportunity. I am on both of her sites all of the time. She is also approachable and I am so glad that she allowed me to interview her!
Check out our question and answer session below:
How did you first get started on The Curvy Fashionista?
Pure happenstance! I ended up using it after I completed my MBA as a place to share my findings and resources! From there it evolved into what it is now!
Do you network with other bloggers or fashion insiders?
Always and yes. It i necessary to build upon and to grow within whatever community you are in. No blog is an island…
What are the top five things that you think every blogger should do or have to be successful?
1. It takes ten years to be an overnight success
2. Kindness never goes out of style
3. Patience is one of the hardest, but sooo worth it, virtues
4. Comparison is the thief of joy. Never compare your walk with another’s. You do not know what they battle with, go through, and how much is just for show!
5. Find your voice and own it.
Do you think fashion is changing for the better for plus size women?
But of course! There are more designers, bloggers, models, events, than ever!!!
Who are your style icons?
Queen Latifah and Carine Roitfeld- they both have a rock and roll and feminine touch to their style that always leaves me inspired. Polished, sassy, sexy, and playful all in one fell swoop!
What is your favorite part about your job?
Being able to inspire women to see that they are beautiful! That is the greatest part of my job!
What is your advice to anyone out there trying to be successful?
It will take time. Build a solid foundation, stay consistent, and even when it seems impossible and sometimes lonely or dark, do not give up!
