• Fashion Bombshell of the Day: Nel from DC

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

    She writes, “My blog is Girls of Plenty (www.girlsofplenty.com).”

    “.. 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.
