Tell us something about you (for example: age/profession/hobbies etc...).
Hi, my name is Caroline aka Mademoiselle Plume.
I'm plus size and I'm addicted to shopping.
So I'm a FA: Fashion Anonymous :)
Why did you start blogging?
I love fashion, but it is fashion on a budget. I really
wanted to share my budget finds with other young
women in the same situation as I am in.
Finding the right clothes that fit, that aren't
too big or too smal, that are at a reasonable price,
that are made to fit our bodies/curves.
Do you have (personal) fashion rules? Yes/no? Why?
I don't really have rules but I must say that I don't wear tight clothes. Or wear shoes in the same color as your bag. I prefer a style with a more personal and individual touch. I love it when fashion has some humor in the outfits. When you don't take yourself (and fashion) seriously, that appeals to me. The bottom line is that fashion is all but a fun game to me. Who is your fashion muse? Why? My muses are women who consider themselves to be free. And this attitude has nothing to do with your weight or size. It is all about being in harmony with yourself even if it means working on this every single day.
If you could be any accessory item,
which one would you be? Why?
It ain't exactly an accessory, but I would be red nail polish.
Because beautifully polished nails are just small gems on their own.
What is your message for women/girls struggling with their body image?
I would love to have an instant solution
but to be honest it is a personal journey.
The first is step to find out about your strengths,
give them value and just concentrate on what you like about yourself.
And most of all ... to accept compliments from the people you love.
Embrace our similarities and celebrate our differences!
