Hello everyone! And welcome to FaTshionable Rolls. LOL thought the name was appropriate cause that is what I’m doing. Making my ROLLS Fashionable HA HA. My name is Susie. And this is my first blog entry 🙂 YAY! I am going to post and write about everything FATSHION. Whether its outfits I wear, shopping, sales, events, news, modeling, WHATEVER. But no matter what it is, it will probably be about FaTshion. Cause I truly believe that just because you are fat, curvy, plus-size, whatever you call it, I believe that you can look and feel fabulous AT ANY SIZE!! I have no problem calling myself FAT. Some people may be offended by it. But HELLO? I’m fat. There’s no other way to say it. I’m FAT, my friends are FAT. It’s just who we are. So I will be using that term OFTEN!!!! So I hope you guys enjoy. Oh and please don’t judge me by my grammar. I do not consider myself a writer by any means LOL
I will first start off by telling you a little about myself. I currently live in Marietta, Georgia. Which is a suburb of Atlanta. I am a small-business owner. I just opened a women’s clothing boutique almost 2 months ago in Kennesaw, Georgia; Embellish Boutique. I sell Trendy & Affordable Womens Clothing in sizes 2-26. www.embellishboutique.co I actually started off with an online boutique; Embellish Plus. It was catered strictly to plus-size clothing. So with the success of the online boutique, I was able to get my actual store in Kennesaw. But I didn’t want to just carry plus-sizes. I wanted to be able to cater to ALL women.
But before I had my own store, I have been in the Retail/Plus-Size Fashion World for almost 10 years. I have worked for stores such as Torrid, Avenue, Lane Bryant, and Bloomingdales, just to name a few. I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Fashion Design AND Fashion Marketing. I am currently in the middle of designing my own PLUS-SIZE clothing line. Mainly dresses. It will debut in Spring/Summer 2012. It is a collection of mainly dresses.
Speaking of Dresses, I am OBSESSED with them. I just ❤ them soooooooo much. 99% of my wardrobe is dresses. I think they are so feminine and COMFY. I wear them almost everyday. Can’t go wrong with a dress :0)
I have been married for over 4 years now. My husband’s name is Bo. He is 37 years old. He works in the Restaurant Industry. We met in Florida. Which is where I am originally from. I moved to the Atlanta area to go to college. We actually started dating when I was 19. And I am 29 now. DANG THAT’S A LONG TIME! Lol. I love my hubby very much. He supports me in whatever I do. And he loves to shop just as much as me. Can’t beat that!!!! 🙂
I have two babies. Well FURRY babies that is 🙂 I have a 6-year-old Chihuahua, Munky and a 2-year-old Dachshund, Mr. Bean. THEY ARE MY LIFE!!!!!!!!! I don’t know what I would do without them. Munky hates the world and pretty much everyone in it. He is scared of everything and shakes a lot HA HA. But once he gets to know you, he will love you. He sleeps pretty much 90% off the day. And he HAS to be covered up when he sleeps. You’d think he wouldn’t be able to breathe BUT he can. Then there is Mr. Bean. COMPLETE OPPOSITE from Munky. He loves life. He loves everyone. He is the biggest lover you will ever met. He will lick you to death 😛 He loves to be outside and socialize with other dogs.
I AM OBESSED with the color red and zebra print. And if the two are together, OMG, I must own it LOL. And I didn’t get this CURVY, FAT body by eating celery sticks. I LOVE Cupcakes. Especially GiGi’s. Ummmmmm What I wouldn’t do for a cupcake?!? J/K HA HA.
In my spare time I love to SHOP (of course), spend time with my husband and close friends, go to the movies, go out to eat (DUH). I love to make things. I used to play softball on a league. I kinda want to get back into that. I loved doing that. I love to laugh. I just went to a improv comedy club this past Saturday night for my besties bday. I couldn’t breath half of the show, cause I was crying from laughing so hard. I love life. And I am very happy at where I am right now. In 5 years I would love to have another location for my store, I want my clothing line to be sucessful, I want to have REAL babies, travel and see new places, meet new people and just emerge myself even more into the FATSHION world.
Okay folks, so I do believe that is it for my first blog entry. I hope you enjoyed getting to know me and little better. And i hope we can have a long lasting blogging relationship.
❤ ~ Susie
