I found Erin Coleman of Capital City Curves on Instagram looking for fellow curvy babes in Ottawa. I liked her style, so I asked her a few questions.
What’s your passion for fashion? To me fashion is wearable art. It should evoke interest and wonder in the people that view it. It should tell a story about who you are and what goes on inside your head. That being said, I don’t have just one style. It’s constantly changing just as I am as an individual. Sometimes vintage and quirky; sometimes modern and simple. If it catches my interest, I’ll give it a try. I also like to mix vintage pieces with modern outfits. It creates interest and usually starts a story with strangers.
What XLusive tip can you share? Try it on! Don’t feed into the idea that “certain styles” are only for “certain body types”. We are in an era of body positivity! (FINALY). It’s time to break all the fashion rules. Wear horizontal stripes and loose or tight fitting pieces! Experiment. If you love it, try it, and don’t get discourage if the first one you try doesn’t work, keep trying things on!
It’s getting chilly out there, and although I hate to admit it… Summer is coming to an end faster than we can say “hell no!”
I love this comfy transition look, perfect for fall or even spring. The light weight cotton parachute pants (forever 21+), the striped blazer (Marshalls) and a pop of colour in my yellow pumps, reminds us that the sun is still around.
A nude tone leather bag (mine is a Marc Jacobs purchased on Valamode.com) is also a versatile and classic accessory every girl needs to compete her look.
Wear this look to work, or pull it off for a dinner date with the gals. You are sure to remain warm, comfortable, relaxed and on point for your next occasion.
This is Laura of The Fashion Kidd. I like her style, so I ask her a few questions.
What’s your passion for fashion? I like how clothes can have the ability to express my personality. Getting dressed in the morning is something I look forward to. Each day is a fresh start and opportunity to look however I want.
What XLusive tip can you share?If you like it, just wear it. Be uniquely you. People always think they have to follow rules or dress for other people when really there are no rules and you should just dress for you.
