Fashion Bombshell of the Day
Fashion Bombshell of the Day: Nel from DC
By Claire

Today’s Bombshell is Nel from Washington, D.C.:

She writes, “My blog is Girls of Plenty (”

“.. While my blog may masquerade as a fashion blog…”

“…it is anything but.”

” It is a platform for a plus size woman to encourage others to be themselves through fashion.”

” As a married, professional woman well into my 30s (very close to 40), with a family to raise, I aim to show women that fashion is what you want it to be.”

” There are no rules that you need to adhere to…”

“… no trends that you have to follow.”

” Wear what makes you feel good on any given day.”

As an African-American, I also try to pay homage to my African ancestors by wearing something that celebrates my heritage and the sacrifices they made for my freedom.”

” All in all, my style is what it is.”

I adore your style philosophy! Not all your looks are my taste, but that’s what I love about them. You’re boldly, uniquely you, which is refreshing in this age of copycats and me-toos.

    I’m Inspired some misses, mostly hits. However some of the things that makes her a bombshell is that she isn’t status quo & through her clothing style she sets her own trends. You can tell she’s makes her own rules & owns it unapologetically and isn’t afraid to let you know it BOMBSHELL !

    I’m sorry, she does need a tailor. Her clothes don’t compliment her body type. Way too much material…

    she is super dupa fly to me…but burn those damn denim overalls.
    everything else had me screaming WERK !!!!!!!!!!!! that look with the knee high leather boots in the park is the BIZNESS !!! its refreshing to see a bigger woman not trying to squeeze into something too small— too many plus sized chicks on here get the epic fail for that.
