A Picture Says A Thousand Words

I know I had not written in a while, but the holidays got the best of me.  I ate, and ate and missed all the shopping deals . . . . oh well.  I hope everyone enjoyed their holiday with family and friends, good food and maybe some shopping.

My first profile will be of a young lady who resides in Atlanta GA.  She is a graduate of SCAD and currently works for Upscale magazine.  Very down to earth sista who is doing her thang . . . . . sorry had to get a little ghetto on yall, lol.  Let me remind you this blog is to share with the world that plus sizers are smart, trendy, fashionable and artsy people just like those size 5 and 8, lol.  But I must confess, she is no plus sizer however she took my pictures professoinally so therefore she meets the qualification, lol.

Anyway I wanted to ask her a few questions so here we go:

Occupation? Photo Editor

Hobbies? Photography, SHOPPING (finding great deals)!!, (budget) fashion, volunteering, decorating, art, refurbishing old furniture, researching anything and everything (I love learning new things)

Inspiration? My mother & the potential of the future

Travel? Yes, please! j/k. I like to travel whenever I have time or can afford it. I love taking road trips with friends... last location I traveled, clemson, S.C. My favorite spot, I guess Miami since I've spent most time there.

Purpose? My purpose in life? I want to make a difference. I dont want to leave the earth without make it better. To live, love and laugh :)

Your uniqueness? Oh, the list would go on and on but..... Im somewhat "eclectic", I see things a little differently, Im a germaphobe too :)

Why photography? Since I see things a little differently, Ive always wanted to travel the world and capture it through my eyes. I love the story photos tell, without the help of words. I love the whole process of creating an image, its poetic. Photography is powerful, yet personal. Its says everything that is never said (does that make sense??). Its a reflection of who I am.

Thats Just My Style

Alright ladies I'm not sure if you know this, but we have a true blood plus size designer in our mist. I mean if you live in the "A” that is. Yes Atlanta, the line is called Jibri and the designer / owner is Jasmine Elder. I would describe her style as retro-fun. Her line has soothing colors, wonderfully shaped fabrics, and a real since of style. Any plus size women would look even the more curvaceous and voluptuous in one of her pieces. She does not HIDE our curves she makes them pop! Have you ever looked at a piece of clothing and thought . . . that’s my style and had a sigh of relief. Well that was my reaction to the Jibri line.

When I discovered her line by way of another blog, I just had to ask her a few questions. Her clothes are absolutely gorgeous, fun and it looks like she put some thought into it. Pieces where put together for a reason and created a wonderful purpose! By the way through her email . . . . yes through her email I can tell she is super nice!

Occupation? Designer

Hobbies? Traveling, reading, sewing, thrift shopping, cooking

Inspiration? Music, Art, Literature, Vintage Film

Why designing? There are things that pop into my head that I can't get out until I create them. Again...I love making beautiful things that make people feel beautiful.

Whats your style? Vintage glamour. Always a lady. ;)

Ideas on plus size clothing? I design clothing for ladies...real ladies...they just happen to be plus size. The kind of ladies that turn heads even in gym clothes. The kind of ladies that couldn't fade into a crowd even if they wanted to. Those kind of women always have somewhere to wear my dresses and I'll keep making them even if no one else does. :)

This last piece is super cute!

If you have fallen in love with these few pieces please, please visit her website Jibri.
