PLUS MODEL MAGAZINE July 2015, the 9th Anniversary Issue - Page 68

Ola Dipo roadtofashionable.com IG @RoadtoFashionable TW @RoadtoFash Fashion is very essential to my confidence and I am a believer in maintaining anything that makes you happy, confident and comfortable and fashion does that for me. Plus size fashion is fast-evolving and gone are those days when we were designated to the bottom of the barrel and I think that we have many plus size magazine and bloggers to thank for that. Wear whatever you want, how you want, when you want. The only thing that matters is how you feel about yourself. Anything that makes you feel confident is what you should wear. Sure we have fashion “guidelines” but those are just there for you to perfect your look. Take those fashion tips and tailor them to your own style. I have been every size ranging from a 14 to a 26 and I know the challenges faced by plus size women fashion-wise, because I have experienced the same challenges. My goal is to show plus size women that being fashionable and stylish is not defined or limited by size.
