About Me

About-Photo

Hello everyone!

My name is Kristine and I am a plus size fashion blogger from Los Angeles. I have been a curvy girl all my life but that has never stopped my longing to be trendy and stylish. While it has sometimes been difficult, I have learned throughout the years how to dress my frame in the most flattering ways possible. I definitely live by the saying “Everything isn’t for everybody” however that doesn’t mean that you can’t take current fashion trends and make them work for you. So in order to show that, I decided to start my blog in September of 2013 with the catch phrase “A curvy girl living in a trendy world.” My mission and my goal was simple – to show that curvy women can be just as stylish and fabulous as everyone else. Since my debut, TrendyCurvy.com has grown tremendously, being featured in major publications such as People StyleWatch, Glamour Magazine, Essence Magazine and more.

So this blog is a tribute to all of my full figured fashionistas with impeccable style and taste. We are trendy, we are curvy and we are taking over. Join the movement.

    Dear Kristine,

    It is people like you who truly help so many in the same situation but who have been struggling within themselves. My younger sister needed help and I went on a Goggle search for plus size fashionista and through the images, one of your outfits got my attention and that is how I got to your website. I was so happy for her but I also realized that I myself may be a size 6-8 however, YOU exhibit a confidence that even me myself have not attained in my smaller size and that is what made me love your blog! Great job dear!!

      Hi Kristine I love your site! Im a curvy woman pushing 50 and all my life I’ve been called hippy, big boned, girls your size and I hated it. Now I’m finally in a place of peace and seeing your style has really been uplifting! I’m planning a blog as well a little different from yours but personal style to include fashion, home decor etc! You are awesome lady!

    Hi Kristine,
    My name is Nozuko from Johannesburg, South Africa. Growing up it was always difficult to find glory in my plus size figure, but it is women like you who make it possible for women like me to consider that there is beauty within us. I visit your blog regularly and the confidence you have given me is unfathomable. Thank you! Don’t stop.

    Great message… it tells more of the person inside which is always greater than the outside view…. I think you are just starting it will be even greater than words can explain… GREATER THAN LIFE.

    Was wondering if your trend can be extended to my Country Nigeria where i believe you have the curviest of black women. And i am stealing your style to kill some of friends and sisters…. great job.

    I just found this page. You’re very beautiful and stylish. It’s inspired me to stop hiding under my baggy clothes and embrace my curves! Thank you! One thing I’d like to ask though… how do you walk in those heels? Heels are somewhat uncomfortable for me. Do you have a brand that you find to be comfortable? Thanks again for sharing your style.

    • Reply Kristine December 18, 2015 at 3:53 pm

      Hi Antoinette,

      Thanks so much for your comment! Really appreciate that. To answer your question, no heels are really comfortable after some time but I do try to stick to quality brands because those always last longer and tend to be more comfortable (for the most part). For example BCBG, Michael Kors, Rachel Roy and Coach are some of my favorite and most comfortable shoes in my closet. I do, however, also have less expensive shoes that are comfortable as well from all over like Forever 21, H&M and Charlotte Russe. You just have to try things out. It’s going to be hit or miss but you will be able to find which brands/styles work best for you. Hope that helps!
