Fall is in the air and I had the pleasure of speaking with Chief of Style’s Amy Stretten to discuss this season hottest must have plus size women wear. I became a huge fan of Ms. Stretten work after seeing a post of her in a shirt that read “Thick thighs save lives.” I instantly chuckled after seeing the cute customized tee shirt. I had the chance to chat it up about her personal style aesthetics. Check out what she had to say about her love of for fashion and her 5 Must have picks below.
Here is my interview with Chief of Style’s Amy Stretten:
The Culture Keeper: What inspired you to start a fashion blog?
Amy Stretten: I always loved clothes, however clothing stores did not always love me. I was previously a reporter for Fusion TV. I experienced job loss. People would always compliment me on my fashion sensibilities. I then started selling my clothes after experiencing job loss. Moments in my life led me to starting my fashion blog.
The Culture Keeper: Who was your first style icon?
