Fashion Bombshell of the Day: Gugu from South Africa

Take a look at today’s Bombshell, Gugu from South Africa:

The New York resident sent in an e-mail titled, “Not Another Plus Size Fashion Bombshell,” saying, “The plus in my size serves as an added blessing.”

“… Learning to understand my body and accepting it for what it is has been a long fascinating journey.”

“… I have thoroughly enjoyed the road to discovering myself.”

… There’s always an element of surprise there, especially as I am becoming a woman my future kids will meet one day.”

“Since I constantly evolve so does my taste which influences my personal style.”

“I do not know how to categorize myself stylistically, however the one thing I have tried to maintain over the years is good presentation.

” I thrive to look polished.”

I never thought I’d write to be featured because I have never thought of myself as a style connoisseur of any sort. However, since my debut on Instagram @StyleGoneGugu a few weeks ago, I have been receiving a ton of encouragement from friends and peers as well as my followers. Perhaps one day soon, when I have an actual blog, I can [resubmit].”

Oh Gugu, I’m gaga over your style! Your looks are chic, scintillating, and super flattering! Can’t wait to follow you on Instragram @StyleGoneGugu. Work it, mama!
