Follow Her Friday: The Curvy Blogger

This week we’re inspired by blogger, photographer and model, Mandy Holesh from The Curvy Blogger. We sat down with her to talk about blogging, style and learning to love your curves. Read on to learn more about this bold and beautiful powerhouse.

We love your blog! What inspired you to start the Curvy Blogger? 
“I stand for style at all sizes, when I started my blog in 2010 there weren’t many bloggers who were in between straight and plus sizes. So my goal was to inspire girls who were a bit curvier to wear what they want and disobey the rules.”

Your style is so fun! What three words would you use to describe it?
“Eclectic, bold, fun.”

You have been very open about past insecurities and learning to love your curves. What advice would you give to girls who are struggling with body image?
“Ignore what everyone else is saying. I know, easier said than done. Many people will try to make you feel bad about how you look or who you are, and 95% of the time it is because they have no confidence in themselves. I find that liking the way you look is sort of a rebellious thing to do, which is the best way to be a rebel in my opinion.”

Do you have a favorite quote or motto that inspires you? 
“I love to see a young girl go out and grab the world by the lapels. Life’s a bitch. You’ve got to go out and kick ass.” -Maya Angelou

What does being #AerieREAL mean to you?
“It means to be fearless, to be who you are and not apologize for it. Be you.”

Aerie For Yellowberry

Two years ago, 17-year-old Megan Grassell went bra shopping with her little sister, Mary Margaret. But in a sea of underwire, pushups and padding, they weren’t able to find anything for a developing, 13-year-old girl. So Megan set out to “change the bra industry for tween girls” and did something that most 17 year olds would not—she started her own company! Yellowberry began with one passionate girl, a mission to “build a product that didn’t exist” and a Kickstarter campaign. It soon grew into something much more. Not only did it land Megan on Time Magazine’s list of the 25 Most Influential Teens of 2014, but it also established Yellowberry at the forefront of a movement for girls everywhere.

Yellowberry designs and makes real bras for girls. Free of padding and push-up features, these bras are made for girls who want youthful, colorful and comfortable styles. Yellowberry urges girls to enjoy—not rush—the beginning, “yellow” stages of life, and Megan wants her product and her brand to “support girls to be who they are and celebrate their time as just that, girls.” We couldn’t agree more!

Introducing Aerie for Yellowberry – our best collab evah!

Aerie For Yellowberry

Now, we’re super-psyched to partner with Megan on Aerie for Yellowberry, our best collab evah! This exclusive collection of comfy, fun-to-wear bras is for our “little sisters,” the next generation of #AerieREAL girls. For Megan, this collab was meant to be: “I am incredibly grateful to be able to partner with a brand that shares so many of the same core messages that I built Yellowberry upon; inspiration for girls to have a positive self-image, strong self-confidence and a great sense of their own special identity.”

A girl with an idea is a powerful thing. A movement of girls is even stronger!

What To Wear: New Year’s Eve

We can all agree that New Year’s Eve is a time to shine. Whether you’re ringing in the new year out on the town or staying in with family and friends, a little bit of sparkle can go a long way.

Allexis from Life of a Coy Fish shows us how she styles her favorite Aerie finds to watch the ball drop.

Meet Allexis: 
Allexis is an adventurous, book-loving, running addict, fashion obsessed, 22 year-old and the blogger behind Life of a Coy Fish.

What inspired Allexis’s Looks:
Hey friends! When it comes to NYE we all know there are really only two ways to celebrate: out on the town with friends, or snuggled in at home with loved ones. To make your New Year’s Eve a little easier I put together a look for you all for each way to celebrate. I don’t know about you guys but when I’m ringing in the new year with a night out on the town I want to be warm, comfortable, and cute. I don’t want to have to worry about tugging a dress down all night or having freezing bare legs. These cute sequined leggings are THE perfect piece to meet those needs without having to compromise looking great!

To complete the look and keep it fun, I paired these bad boys with a fun printed sweater and wedges that are comfy enough to dance the night away in. Sequins are really a no brainer when it comes to NYE and some other fun ways to style some cute sequined leggings would be with a fun graphic tee and classic pair of pumps, or with a boyfriend blazer and plain white tee. The possibilities are endless and there’s really no way to go wrong with these leggings!

For a night in, watching the ball drop on Times Square on the good old television, the key to a cute look is keeping it cozy while bringing in fun sparkly elements that make it so it doesn’t just feel like another boring night at home! This sequined bralette layered underneath this soft henley is the perfect way to add that bit of New Year’s fun while these cozy little knit PJ shorts keep things casual and comfy!
