Could you tell us three reasons you’re awesome?

My mission is to help women build a healthy relationship with fashion and getting dresses, I support fashion designers making clothing in extended sizes, and I made it to Fashion Week with six months of starting my blog.

Tell us about a favorite childhood memory about your clothes.

I remember when my mom let me pick out my own outfit or the first day of pre-school: a baby pink Levi’s jacket and white flare Levi’s jeans, black mary-janes.  I cried when my pants got dirty on the playground!

What is your best thrifting score?

A vintage Louis Vuitton bag for $37.99, which I turned into a clutch due to a broken handle.
Winter neutrals + an interview filled with curvy style tips!

What are you wearing right now, as you type this?

High-waisted, wide leg black slacks, an olive green and black, sheer, polka dot top with a bow, an over-sized Michael Kors rose gold watch, an onyx stone cocktail ring, leather and gold statement necklace, and black pumps with lace applique.

A black feather blazer + an interview filled with curvy style tips!

What is the item of clothing you most covet at the moment?

Cropped slacks! It’s so hard for me to find a great fitting pair, due to my height (I’m 5’10”) and my body-type (hour-glass/pear).

Could you tell us your top three style tricks/DIYs?

1. When you can’t find anything to wear, wear what you feel most like yourself in.
2. When you need to add some va-va-voom to your outfit, add a waist-belt to show-off that waist to hip ratio!
3. Don’t be afraid to try skinny jeans! Paired with a blousey top and open front cardigan, they can be super flattering.

Thanks so much, Tanesha!  Do you guys have any questions for the lovely lady?

P.S. How to look cute, even when it’s really, really cold



Thank you so much for introducing me to her. I can't wait to start following her blog – I am a curvy girl myself 🙂 Excited about seeing different styles on a body type similar to mine 🙂


Wow. I am so jealous of her amazing curves! Lovely! I have boy hips and an apple shape and I would gladly gain 10 lbs tomorrow if they could just all go to my hips. Love the hourglass figure.


I've been following her blog for a while and am always blown away by her beauty and amazing style! Great post!


I love her blog, even though I'm a size 6 I have the exact same body shape and I feel she is way more inspirational than the average, too-popular skinny thighs/flat chest combo fashion blogger.

I have a question for Tanesha: how hard is it to find pants that fit you, and do you invest on altering them to fit your body? (I own 1 single pair of pants for that reason)

Tunisia Cielo

Wow!! First time I’m seeing Tanesha.. my name is Tunisia .. so I had to check her out. She is just beautiful, inspirational and curvaceous. I can’t wait to check her blog. I am 5 “4” at 140 lbs.. my shape is the same, so I am always fighting with myself in the mirror. Thank you!! I can’t wait to see what you suggest!!
