Like pretty much any other girl I know, I use Instagram on a regular. It’s not only a place to dump my selfies, post pictures of manicures and well placed objects on a table to pretend like I am all fancy (hashtag blogger life AMIRITE?!), its a place to find inspiration for outfits to come.
So every once in a while, I like to stalk the plus size hashtags (look out for #plussizeblogger #plussizefashion and #plussize to start off with, maybe I might do a top hashtags on Insta post….) to see if I can find any accounts that I love the look of and I obsess over them for a little while. I also like to see who’s interacting on other plus size babe posts – plus size babes attract other plus size babes so when I see a fat hottie, I instantly look to see who’s communicating with them.
I wanted to share with you 5 babes who are climbing my Instagram stalking lists so you guys can join me and it can be less weird, ‘kay? Get clicking on those @’s or screenshots to take yourself to their Instagram pages and give them some love!
So I first came across Faith when going through the #plussizeblogger hashtag and I am SO GLAD I did! This gorgeous Arkansas beauty Faith Lasha serves some of the fiercest fashion I have seen on a person. I mean just look at that denim ruffle top!
Her killer smile is featured in pretty much every photo too, and her whole feed is bright and positive – it really is a joy to go through! You can read here blog HERE too.
Okay okay, real talk now girls – I am 100% in love with this lady’s style. She is the goth inspired version of me that I could only hope to be. She mixes femme with grunge effortlessly, looks endlessly preened to perfection and is probably one of the only people with a fringe that I’ve seen that can rock one of those blogger hats to a T!
This French fancy is killer through and through and although she doesn’t have a blog that you can flick through, she is a proper fashion influencer and can be found errywhere. I also keep up with her here too!
Laurel is a body positive, feminist, writing powerhouse. Her Instagram feed is packed full of uplifting posts, rousing rally cries and beautifully composed photos of her in and out of clothes looking like the goddess she is. I go to her feed when I need a dose of inspo!
Laurel is first and foremost an “intersectional feminist, fat liberationist and writer” as she puts herself on her blog here. She’s written for a number of my favourite online magazine sites such as Wear Your Voice and Ravishly, and whatever she’s written has been engaging and powerful – go get yourself your dose of fat girl power from this girl!
Stephanie rocks cool casuals like no other person I have seen. Her ability to rock a pair of jeans with embroidery on and a cool floaty oversize top is something to behold! I absolutely love her laid back looks and effortless style – defo an inspiration!
Stephanie is also part of the tall girl club, so if you’re over 5’10”, you need to check out her blog here and how she styles herself in the world of plus size clothing, which isn’t always tall girl friendly!
So I met Joey at Curve Fashion Festival last year when she was being a plus size ambassador for Boohoo and I instantly loved her. She’s androgynous fashion with a femme twist and her makeup looks are TO DIE FOR.
Speaking of which, she’s just started up her make up Instagram account, so pop and get you a follow of this babe’s fierce work. I love the looks she’s been putting together – think strong brow game, flawless blending and LOTS of sass!
