Because our curvy divas need style inspiration, too; we have compiled a list of our top 5 favorite, black, plus size bloggers worth noting. The fashion world is monopolized by the “super slim model type” figure, and now it is time to introduce plus size women who are making great strides in fashion.

Not only does she maintain her own fashion blog, controversially entitled youngfatandfabulous.com; but she was also voted MTV’s Twitter Jockey, a job that comes with a $100,000.00 salary (you go girl!). When she’s not interviewing the hottest celebrities over at MTV, she’s making sure to bring us the hottest trends in fashion, proving that style comes in every size.
