WYV: Who are your three top Style Crushes?
PSC: My style crushes right now are:
- Miss Lion Hunter, who mixes patterns like a pro, and has seriously strong lipstick game!
- Ivory Jinelle, is a master thrifter and risk taker. I absolutely adore her ability to make vintage clothing look current and chic.
- My mother, Hazel, who was always dressed to the nines when I was growing up. She was so glamorous and her jewelry collection is everything!!
WYV: Where do you shop? What are your favorite brands/designers?
PSC: I shop everywhere. but it’s got to be a bargain! My faves are Ross, Marshalls, TJMaxx, Old Navy and Nordstrom Rack which, depending on the location, always have a great selection of plus size clothes. I also shop at ASOS because they offer great basics with free shipping and returns. And I do love a good thrift store — they’re great places to get one-of-a-kind and vintage pieces to build your wardrobe. And goodness knows I can never have enough jewelry — I’m a major collector!
WYV: How do you wear your voice?
PSC: My voice isn’t just comprised of the sound that comes out of my mouth. Wearing whatever the hell I want to tells the world that I’m OK with me and my large body. It conveys my lively spirit and confidence often better than anything I could verbalize. I take up space unapologetically, knowing that some folks will be uncomfortable with it. But if I don’t stand in my power, I am telling other women who look like me that they aren’t enough. And I never want to do that.
