Women who are healthy and happy inside and out despite society's traditional standards.

3. Karen Millen, her pants are amazing for girls with curves
4. Nicole Miller Beautiful dresses flattering to my figure once again
5. BCBG-great for classic pieces for work as well as party dresses
6. Betsy Johnson- great fun pieces; especially her shoes

Aveda's Sap Moss line. Keeps my hair moisturized. Sadly it is about to be discontinued. They have another moisture line coming though. Can't think of the name of it right now.
L'oreal Paris Glam Bronze Perfecting Bronze Spray

What is fashion & style is to you?
Comfort with your look no matter what is "in style" at the moment.

Top 5 things every fashionista should have.
- Little Black Dress
- Lots of costume jewelry
- At least one quality handbag
- A pair of neutral pumps
- Undergarments that fit properly

Advice you'd give to other women!
Don't wear things that are uncomfortable for you simply because they are deemed as "in" by "fashion experts". I've made this mistake throughout my late teens and early twenties and every time I look back at those pictures I think, "what was I doing?" Strive for comfort, which may be 4 in. heels rather than flats for you! You define comfort! Also, don't get caught up in how much things cost. If something fits you well it doesn't have to be designer to warrant a place in your closet. On the other hand, if you like something and you can afford it, who cares if others think you are paying too much for it. I think a great American rapper once said something like, "You just do you, and I'ma do me!" That's pretty much how I feel!
