Fall is in the air and for this special blog. I have the pleasure of interviewing beauty and fashion expert Pepper Martin. Pepper has an amazing blog PrettyPlusPep.com which focus on the latest trends in fashion for women beyond the average size. Pep as she likes to be called is a personal stylist, shopper, and closet organizer. Her mission is to show plus size women of all ages that they too can look as fabulous as their favorite celebrity or corporate mogul without spending tons of money and with minimal effort. “I like to reach beyond the fashion’s mainstream concept of trendy looks by mixing priceless vintage pieces with modern classics.” Her love for mixing vintage and modern pieces reflects in her personal style. Pep’s goal is to show women that they can have it all in fashion and life: Self- Love, Confidence and A Great Wardrobe.
I believe fashion is an expression of one’s inner self and not a reflection of every one’s expectation of what should be expressed. I immediately fell in love with PrettyPlusPep fashion blog because fashion should always reflect your personal style, which is her motto. I too am a huge fan of mixing prints along with vintage and modern pieces. How you look is often a result of how you feel.
Check out my interview with beauty and fashion expert Pepper Martin:
Ms. Culture Keeper: What made you want to start your blog PrettyPlusPep?
Pepper Martin: I just got a new job in Florida and I was away from my family and friends. I would post pictures of my outfits every morning before heading off to work and most of my female friends would ask me where I shop and when did I get certain items. A friend suggested I start a blog that way more women would see my corporate plus size style.
Ms. Culture Keeper: Who was your first style icon?
Pepper Martin: Ester Williams. I’m a huge fan of movies from the 50’s. I loved the way the women dressed during that film era.
Ms. Culture Keeper: When you can’t think of anything to wear what is your current one to go to Fall outfit?
Pepper Martin: Anything that is a Jumpsuit is my fall back. You can pair a jumpsuit with anything.
Ms. Culture Keeper: What colors are on trend for Fall?
Pepper Martin: Wine, Deep Greens and Navy is what I’m excited about.
Ms. Culture Keeper: How has the plus size blogging world changed since you started out?
